Passive smoking can affect the baby. Perhaps try to ask people not to smoke around you as you are pregnant.
Sleeping on your stomach will not affect the baby.

Best wishes

Caro- u sound like a careless mom to be. How dare you put ur child`s health in danger by being around smokers? December period has been around for many years....stay as far as you possibly can from hazardous zones....
