Pregnant artists. Comfy positions? Advice?

I'm having a little trouble being 6 months pregnant at this point to find comfortable positions and ways to draw while sitting at my desk.

Is there anyone here that can give me a little advice, and maybe share personal experiences for others that may one day be in a similar situation?

Get a Table-Mate! https://www.tablemate.com/

I've never been pregnant, but I do often have a cat or a Labrador on my lap while I art - I put the laptop on the table-mate, the legs can slide under the couch if I need to pull it closer, and then I can hold my tablet, balanced in the crook of my arm or resting on the aforementioned sleeping pet. Much more comfy, and no crick in the neck from having the laptop on the arm of the sofa.

I used one of these when my back was so bad that using a regular computer chair wasn't really feasible. There's a weight limit of ~40lbs, so you have to mind that, but I used it to help me use my desktop from a recliner. Tower went beside the recliner, monitor and speakers went on the table-mate, and I used a wireless keyboard and mouse.

The table-mate did eventually warp from this situation, since the monitor was a touch too heavy from it, but I wasn't needing the table to be flat, just hold up the monitor, so it worked for the 2-3 years I needed it.
