  1. First, learn "lie" versus "lay".

    "stomachs" and "bellies" mean the same thing. "Belly" is informal and not as polite.

    No, you do not have to delete 'side". We do say "left side", etc. "Backside" usually means one's buttocks, though. "Back" and "front" don't require "side", but it's not wrong.
