Is it safe to sleep on my stomach while i'm pregnant?

Yes: Nature has provided wonderful protection for the developing baby -- the amniotic sac (bag of waters) acts as a natural shock absorber, so sleeping on your stomach is perfectly safe. By the time you've reached the third trimester, you won't want to, because you can't!

How does one prevent inflammation of stomach lining due to bloodthinner plavix (clopidogrel)?

Dr. Michael Moran

It doesn't...: Plavix does not cause inflammation of the stomach lining. If you have inflammation it is from some other cause, like helicobacter pylori infection. If your stomach burns after taking plavix, take it on a full stomach. Talk to a G.I. Specialist and have an endoscopy, they may give you a proton pump inhibitor or cytotec (misoprostol).
