A lot of questions..

So I'm sixteen weeks and I've lost all my symptoms which they say is normal so I'm fine with that. However I am a little worried about the way I sleep. I try so hard to sleep on my left side and knowing how hard for me I started as soon as I found I was pregnant. I can only sleep on my belly and back and with me showing I feel like its dangerous for the baby.
Also this is probably way dumb but.sneezing, it feels like its not good for the baby is it okay? (I'm sorry my doctor ***** and never answers questions)

I am 33 weeks and have just really gotten to the point where i cant sleep on my belly i wouldnt be flat on my belly but.kind if turned.to the side but still mostly on my belly but baby goes crazy now when i do it so i have to sleep on my side which is very uncomfortable to me.... My dr says it doesnt harm baby early on but as big as i am now she doesnt recommend i sleep that way now but if you are uncomfortable the baby probably iss too... As far as sneezing..... I used to get sharp pains in my belly when i sneezed and asked my dr about it she said it could just be from muscles stretching but if it continues to hurt a while after the sneeze to get to her office....idk if same is for you but it might be

they say sleeping on your left side is best for blood flow and such, but my doctor told me i don't HAVE to sleep like that. She also told me that you can sleep on your back or your belly and the baby will be fine, but most women just can't get comfy that way... and as far as sneezing goes, it's a natural function that you can't avoid. i'm more worried about peeing my pants when i sneeze than if it hurts the baby! :)
