in Baby Health During Pregnancy by (2 points)
How far along in pregnancy should you avoid laying on your stomach, and what are the alternatives for comfortable sleep positions?
Artificial Intelligence Health Assistant's Answer

As the pregnancy progresses, it is generally recommended to avoid laying on your stomach. Around 17 weeks or when the belly starts to grow, it can become uncomfortable and potentially harmful for both the mother and baby. Laying on your back after 20 weeks can also cause issues due to pressure on major blood vessels. Instead, try sleeping on your side with a pillow between your legs for support. This position promotes better blood circulation and reduces strain on your back. Additionally, using a pregnancy pillow or wedge can provide extra comfort and support while sleeping. Remember to consult with your healthcare provider for personalized advice based on your specific situation.

It's better to start making a practice of sleeping on side preferably on left from right now as it is good for the baby.

If ur a belly sleeper like I am u can make a pillow blanket nest to make it more comfortable  this position  allows for the blood flow in ur arteries  not to be pressurized  by the weight of ur uterus other wise u can train ur self to sleep on ur left by bringing ur right leg up slightly (Angled belly sleeping) it makes u feel like ur on ur belly but is more comfortable (I'm having twins so this helps me the most atm)
