When I was 7 months pregant with Hannah, I began to have a lot of trouble sleeping. I had a rotator cuff impingement in my right shoulder, sciatic pain in my left hip, couldn’t sleep on my stomach (cause it was huge) and couldn’t sleep on my back (cause of my huge stomach). You see my dilemma.
So I went out an bought a body pillow. I snuggled it for a few nights and it provided some mild relief. Soon however I noticed my body pillow was being taken over a bit. Gradually, it stopped becoming my body pillow and became property of the hubby. In his defense, I am not sure it was really doing much for me. I began to feel like there just wasn’t enough room for my large preggo self, the hubby and a huge person sized pillow.
I lobbied for her to leave. The hubby protested. I briefly won the battle because lets face it, I was about to deliver a large human being and endure incredible amounts of pain and it was largely the his fault. Post baby, while I was all sleepy and distracted, she came back and has just never left. Sometimes, she nudges me to the farthest corner of the bed as she sprawls out right smack dab in the middle of the bed. Do you think she is trying to get rid of me so she can have the hubby all to herself?
I really hate that pillow.
