Approaching Detente with My Maternity Pillow

The Snoogle and I have reached an understanding. After its initial attempt to strangle me in my sleep, I've worked out a pillow strategy to rest somewhat less uncomfortably, since actual comfort is difficult to attain in the last months of pregnancy: My nice soft regular pillow goes under my head, one end of the Snoogle fits between my knees, and the tail end of the Snoogle trails onto the carpet.

For those of you preggo ladies who are considering maternity pillows, I think it's worth it - you just have to be willing to stand (or lie) firm in negotiations.

In other news, I pulled another pair of maternity pants out of my storage box, hoping that they would be a bit larger than what I was currently wearing, and I was happy to discover that they were from an era when I actually bothered to hem pants, instead of letting the fabric just drag at my feet. Ah, the luxury of time.

I can see how a maternity pillow could take on a life of its own. I used about six regular pillows in order to get comfortable.

Isn't it amazing how much less time you have for luxuries during the second pregnancy?

Oh man. I remember those days. I did wrestle and fight w/ that darn pillow... but I did use it. So funny how you forget. thanks for the reminder! I hope you are feeling pretty comfortable now and glad you worked our your own system!!! Q seems to be in favor of the pillow too, so that is a good thing!

I couldn't find my maternity clothes during my second pregnancy. Of course I found them postpartum as I searched for those 6 mo clothes that I knew had to be *somewhere*!

Achieving peaceful coexistence with the maternity pillow is an achievement.

I used to use like 6 pillows to sleep comfortably ---well, as comfortably as I could get --- while pregnant.

And good maternity pants are so hard to find.

My pants desperately need hemming too. Unlikely to happen though. :)

Me, I used two regular body pillows last time. Which left Misterpie clinging to the edge of the bed by his toenails but hey, I'm pregnant over here. Good thing the renos have our bed wedged in between a dresser and a sofa for now, so her can roll onto the couch to sleep if it comes to that!
