With one of my c-sections I actually slept on my stomach after a couple of days. The only problem is getting up. For me it was very painful to get up. But it was worth it because I sleep better on my stomach. I don't know of any reason why you can't try it.

You can try propping one bent knee on a pillow, that might relieve some of the pressure on the scar.

It took me about 3 weeks to even get to my side - let alone my stomach.
