After yesterday’s poll I decided I need to sleep more comfortably and there will come a point when back sleeping really isn’t possible anyways so I looked into getting a body pillow. I went down to the store and picked up a Snoogle.
GET ONE RIGHT NOW
Yeah after ONE NIGHT with this thing I feel so much better. That ass-bone pain I was talking about the other day? Gone! Tossing and turning? Gone! All that back pain I didn’t know I had until I woke up with none this morning? Gone!
Worth every penny and it can be used for breastfeeding later on as well and probably some awesome fort-building.
I would recommend this to anyone with back pain really.
On another note, I think I feel movement but I’m not really sure. The best way I can describe it is as a slightly painful gas bubble that comes and goes but doesn’t move and isn’t followed up by a fart. I read in my week-by-week book that I should start feeling movement between this week and the next 4 weeks but I’ve been feeling something like this now and then for the past 2 weeks so who knows. I didn’t even think it could be movement until I read that yesterday. I thought that’s what a uterus stretching out felt like.
This brings me back to the whole idea of home birth. Remember how I said that I was 90% sure that’s the way I want to go? That nagging 10% is the Epidural Percentage as I like to call it to myself. In a home birth, and epidural is not an option, unless you have a really awesome anesthesiologist friend I suppose. But if you REALLY want one, you can always transfer to the hospital. I need to do more looking into alternative pain management… Anyways I don’t have to decide until I’m in labor anyways I guess.
