Anyway, this post was not meant to be about my lotion. (But it really is amazing.) For the past month, I have found that by morning I am excited to get out of bed. Not because I'm rested, but because my hips hurt so dang bad! Most days I would limp around for about an hour and then it would stop hurting. I tried to be positive about it, I mean, you're just supposed to be in a lot of pain when you're pregnant, right? But it just got too bad. When I spent an entire day limping, and wincing with every step I took, I decided it was time to do something.
Hod came home from work, and I told him, we were going to the store. I had needs, and I was done sucking it up. We came home with this:
Only mine is much cuter, cause it has a "reversible" pillow case. (It's not really reversible, as they so willingly advertised. The fabric on the front is different than the fabric on the back. If that's really reversible, then I'm a monkey.)
I am amazed at the difference a body pillow can make! Most maternity pillows are super expensive, but this wasn't. And now I can sleep! And some mornings I even wake up feeling rested! It is the best invention ever! I love it! So, today is celebrate the greatness that is a body pillow. Go ahead, party your own way, but just party. Because this has changed my life!
