Sometimes it's nice to get advice from experts with a lot of letter degrees behind their names, but other times, you just need to hear what another parent (with a M.O.M. behind her name) has done that has worked. You've got questions? These moms have answers.

its not really good to sleep on your tummy but just acciedently laying on your tummy is fine its hard not to you shouldnt sleep like that all night but its ok just for a few minutes
Try your best not to sleep on your tummy. My doctor said it's best to sleep on your left side and not on your tummy at all, if possible.
I agree, sleep on your left side, that is what my Dr. told me for my previous pregnancies (and they were healthy kids). Sleeping on your left side improves circulation to the heart of the baby.  Good Luck!
