Is ok to lay on my belly if im 12weeks pregnant?

Sure: As long as it is comfortable for you. As you progress in your pregnancy, it's a good idea to begin laying on your side or back. During your 2nd or 3rd trimester, laying on your stomach can decrease blood flow (via the placenta) to the baby.

During pregnancy, when is it a must to avoid laying on the right side? And can propping belly on a pillow be ok to lay on right side?

During pregnancy, when is it a must to avoid laying on the right side? And can propping belly on a pillow be ok to lay on right side?

Mainly during labor: Avoiding the right side is mainly used during labor when there are fetal heart rate abnormalities as a tool to increase blood flow to the placenta. This labor maneuver has now been adopted as a recommendation throughout pregnancy without much scientific evidence to support it. You may adjust with pillows in whatever way is comfortable for you

Too many unanswered.: Issues. When did you have sex, did you miss your period, etc. However two weeks into pregnancy would not upset you laying on your belly!

Happy to say am 4mon pregnant now&feel just a little shakes abdomen in midnight time when lay on bed. Does it my baby's moves. Can it feel them in 4th monts?

Possibly: It's amazing the differences between women as to when they feel their baby move. I didn't feel movement until 22 weeks, but I have had a lot of patients who feel movement at 4 months. Feel blessed if you're feeling movement, it's a great feeling!

I'm 15 weeks pregnant and when I lay on my back I get a ball of tighteness in my abdomen, could this be baby balling up? Or what is it?

Is it low,: Just above your bladder? If so, it could be your uterus, which will stretch and enlarge to make room for the fetus.

25 weeks pregnant and having pain in lower back and abdomen it started while laying down as well, what could this be?

25 weeks pregnant and having pain in lower back and abdomen it started while laying down as well, what could this be?

Go to the hospital..: If you are pregnant and having pain in your lower back that lasts longer than 1 hour, you need to go to the hospital's Labor and Delivery triage unit for evaluation. You could be having pre-term contractions. They may tell you all is well but its best not to assume this. Best wishes!

26 weeks pregnant and having pain below my belly, feels like something is torn? It hurts so bad when im laying down and I go to roll over on my side.

See your Ob!: Appendicitis, torn adhesions from prior pid or c-section, muscle spasm, round ligament pain are all possible, as is urinary tract infection with or without stones. See your obstetrician as soon as possible to get a thorough clinical evaluation and help. I hope it is nothing serious and you recover promptly and fully.

Hard sticking out belly (pot belly)looks like I'm pregnant. Iv always had this stomach. What is it? When I lay it's flat, when I stand it sticks out hard

Diastasis recti: The aponeurosis (ligament)that fuses both sides of your abdominal muscles may be weak causing your intestines to protrude. Consult your doctor.

36weeks pregnant and I still lay on my tummy my bump isn't that big even when we have sex I'm on my belly is it possible to squish or hurt the baby?

Unlikely: If you are comfortable, baby is ok, however, it is somewhat difficult to believe that your bump is not in the way, make sure at your next OB visit, that the fetal growth is appropriate for your dates. Best Wishes

I'm 19 weeks pregnant & everytime I lay down & look at my belly, my belly looks like it has a pulse. It jumps up and down like a heartbeat. I know it's not the baby's, so what is it? Thanks.

I'm 19 weeks pregnant & everytime I lay down & look at my belly, my belly looks like it has a pulse. It jumps up and down like a heartbeat. I know it's not the baby's, so what is it? Thanks.

Your pulse: The uterus lays against the large artery from your heart, the aorta. This pulsates and is what you are observing. It is normal but please point it out to your OB doctor just to make sure it is not something concerning.

Lower abdomen has been hard for 6 months now but I'm not pregnant. Feels hard especially when lying down and bulges out. Uncomfortable to lay on tummy?

Any surgery: Have you have any surgery like C-section or similar lower abdominal surgery? . If you did that will be a hernia if you never had surgery then the hardness in the abdomen could be either female related like a blood or mass in the uterus or large ovarian cyst. or digestive which is the least likely from your description like bloating from IBS either way you need to seek a physician evaluation please.

I'm 35 weeks pregnant and I bent over to fix a rug and got a sharp stabbing pain in my right upper abdomen. I'm laying down now, there's still tendern?

Prob. Muscle spasm: Pl check with your OB if pain recurs or u notice any bleeding, who would probably order a routine US to make sure the growing fetus is doing OK.

Yes: At 30 weeks the babies are constantly changing positions. As long ad you are getting the feral kick counts 2x a day and you are measuring appropriately at your visits all should be fine...
