Kimbosue's Blog has MOOOOOVED!

**As of November 9, 2009, please find me at my new home below.**

Some posts are pw protected, so for the super secret decoder pen....ahem... code, please email me at kimbosue2 AT hotmail DOT com.

This blog will remain open. The link is still tied to lots of IF blogs, groups, and websites. I hope someone can read through my journey and find hope and strength and know that there is a light at the end of the IF tunnel. Prayer is the key! I love all my IF girlies I met along the way, and I hope to keep your friendships going forward during this next chapter of Mommyhood. I hope to see you there!

I've started having issues sleeping well through the night. Well for several reasons. One is that I am getting up to potty more and the other is I just can't get comfortable. I am a tummy sleeper and being 26 weeks pregnant...well, that just isn't an option anymore. I have been sleeping on my side using a pregnancy wedge pillow and when coming back from the bathroom, switching sides. Last week I had to start using a pillow between my knees because my hips were hurting. I couldn't get comfortable like that either. I tried small throw pillows, but couldn't sleep because I kept thinking it was falling out. Then I tried regular pillows but those seemed too big. I read in Baby.Trends and Baby.Bargains that you shouldn't spend $50 on a "maternity.pillow" when a regular body pillow will work just as good for about $40 cheaper.

So I bought one at Target the other night. That and a fuzzy giraffe looking print pillow case. Dean was like WHAT? We are not having animal print in the bedroom. Well, the furniture is black and the bedding is a brown and light brown with an accent wall in red...the only other colors of cases were pale blue and pale giraffe it is! I have slept so much better the past 2 nights with the giraffe - both under my belly and between my knees!

I'm making my mom a birthday cake tonight for her birthday tomorrow. Will post a pic when I'm done.

Happy Thursday Everyone!

**Got home late last night and forgot to take a belly shot. Will do tonight!**

4 nice things to say...:

I bought 2 of the body pillows and love them! I keep one behind me so if I roll onto my back I'm propped up some.

So glad you're getting better sleep.
