Sleeping on stomach
I'm almost 16 weeks pregnant and still find sleeping on my stomach very comfortable. Is this okay and should I assume that I will automatically stop sleeping in that position once I start getting bigger and it feels uncomfortable? Will it harm the unborn baby?

You will very likely stop sleeping in that position as time goes on and it would not harm the baby.
