Shamou Flips

Although I am enamored with my new body pillow ("Snuggles", "Steve", and "Percy" are some of it's names), I was not prepared for the challenges facing a body pillow user entering her 7th month of pregnancy.  For example, my hips often start aching in the middle of the night and I'll need to change sides.  This is no easy challenge with a husband who likes to sleep in the middle of the bed, a dog who often sleeps horizontal on the bed (often resting his head on my legs), and sheets wrapped up all willy-nilly.  First, I have to do a big heave-ho movement and get my body pillow moved from underneath me to my other side onto which I want to roll, slamming it into my husband, dog, or nightstand cup of water (I'm up to two HUGE cups of water on my nightstand these days...and I usually finish them both by morning!),  so that I can then  hoist myself up onto my side elbow and push off, performing a Shamou-like 180 degree flip around.  By the end of the night, it's a miracle if Adam has any cover.  I stand by my reasoning that he probably gets warm from sleeping in the middle of the bed and kicks it off in the beginning of the night, though.

UGH! I think I started having the same sleeping problems around 7 months as well. I remember someone telling me that I might be more comfortable in a recliner. Maybe it might work for you (didn't for me).

oooh the achey hips...I hated that, but hated the calve cramps more. I am a stomach sleeper by nature so pregnancy was horrible sleeping time for me. I love "willy-nilly" haven't used that recently....must make mental note to bring that back to my ever expanding vocab. The achey hips reappear when they hit about 25 lbs and up and you have to lug their chubby arses all over the place on one hip.

You probably won't want me to tell you it only gets harder to sleep through the night:(. But try as you may to find a comfortable position before that sweet baby gets here:)!
