Just the 3 of us...

Pregnancy, Pregnancy, Pregnancy...

Oh BABY! I thought the 2nd trimester was supposed to be the glory months, the blissful pregnancy weeks, completely smooth sailing....Ummm I think I may be stuck in the wrong trimester. Lately I have had the WORST back pains along with these horrible aches in my stomach, not to mention terrible itching all over my growing belly (even though I keep putting lotion on it constantly!!!). Well night times have not really been my best friend. There is something uncomfortable about trying to sleep with this annoying basketball protruding from my waist, plus all of these weird body aches that I have never experienced! Together they make for an unpleasant night of sleep...

Well the good news is that there is one thing that makes sleeping through the night a little more comfortable :) NO, it is not the company of my dear, sweet husband and NO, it is not that fact that I have our little princess growing inside of me....it is my life saving "Noody" AKA the "pregnancy body pillow". Yes, the last few weeks John, Noody & I have all 3 been sharing our queen size bed! lol Noody is about the size of me and takes up just as much room as I do. So needless to say our bed has been slightly crammed....

Last week I realized how bad it was when John was rubbing what he "thought" was my leg when all of a sudden he said, "That's your leg right?" I turned over looked at him and said, "Ummm no..." Poor John was caressing Noody not me! haha I know John is not a fan of this enormous pregnancy pillow especially since there is no way to really spoon or cuddle each other with it right in the middle of us. There has also been a slight problem with ALL of the covers ending up on my side of the bed since my new friend has joined us. I honestly have no idea how they all end up with me & Noody but every night John wakes up with absolutely NO COVERS. Ohhh don't feel that bad for John he's not the one growing in size and uncomfortable 24/7!  But like I said, this life saving pillow makes night seem a little more tolerable! So Noody is not going anywhere anytime soon. The 3 of us will have to continue to share our not very large bed for the next few months...Luckily this blissful pregnancy experience is OVER HALF WAY done! I am 22 weeks which is about 5 1/2 months along. So the finish line is not too far in the distance. Unfortunately these final months include: becoming huge as a whale, having swollen body parts, out growing ALL of my clothes, more back pain, more intense baby kicks & possible stretch marks :( But I just have to keep the end result "Sweet Little Josselyn" in mind! So I may not be getting the best nights sleep anymore and I am sure it will only get worse once our new little addition arrives. But my Noody sure does make night time more tolerable for now!



So I guess it will have to remain the "3" of us for the next few months....


After reading my Blog, John couldn't resist taking this picture while I was sleeping!
