Sleeping has started to be uncomfortable, which is disheartening, because I have the lion's share of pregnancy discomfort ahead of me. My muscles ache more, and I'm a little intimdated by the fact that my pound-and-a-half babe is going to double in size over the next month.
One day last week after Josh left for work I curled back into bed, put his pillow between my legs and under my bump, and slept solidly for two more hours. That night I went out and bought my very own body pilllow, and my nights--while still punctuated with at least one bathroom run--have been filled with much more sleep. Best pregnancy investment so far.
Other notes at 24 weeks:
:: The cold-cereal kick has continued.
:: I also really like salty things, like Lays chips.
:: Don't forget the chocolate. Obviously.
:: Fewer mood swings, maybe? I'll defer that assessment to Josh--if he dares to wade that minefield.
:: Bella Bands are great; they put off the inevitable purchase of maternity jeans.
:: If I had my way, though, I'd be in stretchy pants all the time.
With more pregnancy discomforts in my future, let me end with a question to you mothers: What are your favorite pregnancy amenities? Tricks? Tips? Splurges? Give me the inside scoop, ladies.
