    the only reason not to sleep how you want is because blood flows BETTER if you sleep on your left side! It wont hurt anything to sleep on your tummy while you can! Your body will not allow you to when it will hurt your baby! Hence the huge tummy thing! I am a stomach sleeper and loved to sleep on my tummy also, but am now 33 weeks pregnant, and cant! I highly recomend starting to get used to the left side, by using a body pilow, and mabey a few extra pillows! This will make the transition easier when you can not sleep on your tummy anymore! good luck and congrats!
