I think I've figured out one of the main reasons I'm not sleeping anymore, even though I'm exhausted all the time.

I'm a stomach sleeper. I just don't sleep well at all on my side or back. But it's very uncomfortable to lay on my stomach so I toss and turn all night.

I need a bed with a big belly hole cut out of it.

prop up on a pillow so you're semi sideways/on your stomach

Me too. I highly highly recommend the snoogle pillow thing. I used one with Cy from the begining because I was having hip pains bad and could not sleep on my side-belly and keep a pillow between my legs.

I can relate! I started feeling uncomfortable on my tummy about ten days ago----as if I were trying to sleep on a grapefruit or something. I'm a back sleeper most of the time though, but I still already miss being able to sleep on my tummy.

Sadly I've tried the pillow between the legs, and propping on a pillow. I still toss and turn.

Oh well... I got through my other pregnancies without sleeping on my tummy, I'll make it through this one. It just doesn't seem fair. (Hmm, I can't find a good pouting smilie on here. )

I know I've seen or heard of something with a big hole for your stomach that keeps the rest of your body up, but I think the mama made it herself by piling up pillows.

Sleeping on my stomach used to make me nauseous, until after I had DS. Then suddenly, I like to sleep on my stomach. If I can't fall asleep, I roll over to my stomach and I'm out. Only for a little bit longer though.

I'm having a hard time on my back and stomach already. I'm sleeping on my side, turned towards my belly, but then my side starts hurting. Sign me up for the mattress with a belly hole cut in it! Then I'll just wake up because of needing to pee and being hungry.

If I had a clue how to go about inventing it I would have already.

Oh wait... I just googled pregnancy mattress and look what I found:

Just a *bit* out of my price range (okay, a *lot*) but I really want it now.
