Lying on my front fantasies!

I'm 34 weeks. Usual aches and pains nothing out of the ordinary but I'd give up a night of passion with Dave Grohl to be able to lie on my stomach! hmm Well maybe not with Dave Grohl.... lol

Anyway I cannot get comfortable! About 6 weeks ago when I was in Portugal DP dug a hole in the sand for my bump and I lay face down for an hour - it was heaven!

I'm now fantasising about how to recreate this magical experience! Should I dig a hole in the back garden and potentially freeze to death? My local leisure centre has a ball pit maybe I could hire that and lie face down in full view of everyone going back and forth to spin and body pump!

Answers on a postcard!!!

Oh goodness yes!

I've been day dreaming about one of those massage tables with the hole cut out for your face... but with a bump hole too...

Lots and lots of pillows and a rolled up spare duvet if necessary.

I'm 8 weeks pregnant with DC2 and I am already whining about the fact I won't be able to sleep on my front again.

Get a rubber ring and lay a towel over the hole so you dont get the horrible skin on plastic discomfort. Its what I was going to do but I'm 38 weeks and can still just about lay on my front grin not that I ever found it comfortable before being pregnant so no idea why it is now...

Rubber ring is a genius idea! Now where to find one in Scotland in November? hmm gringringrin

Love it! I'm getting an inflatable ring and having a belly down nap asap. Seriously missing my belly sleeping right now and groggy AF from sleep deprivation. sad

When did you stop being able to? I'm a front sleeper but have already had to give it up because my boobs hurt too much. How does anyone sleep in any other way!?

If you have a bit of money to spare, get one of these:

It’s basically a blow up bed with a hole for your bump smile
