Pregnancy update and question

Hi gang!
How was everyone's Valentine's Day? Mine was as low key as I wanted it. The movie we watched was Easy A. We both really liked it. Though it wasn't quite the Valentine's romantic comedy lol!!!

Friday, my work threw me a baby shower! It was a little unexpected... and then thy gave me my car seat!!! Shock. Total and utter shock! They gave me a bunch of other stuff too, onesies, bibs, a photo album, this great diaper pack...  It was really  nice!! And the number 1 thing that I was worried about not getting I have! Everything else seems so much easier to obtain (yes I am crazy...)

so pretty!!!

I will admit that my last day at work is Thursday and I a cannot wait  to get out of there!! Even though I have so much work to do at home,

I am 33 weeks now! I have had a lot of people asking me how I am feeling. And I honestly say I am feeling good! My only real issue is sleeping, between the peeing and the pain in my hips and legs when I turn over in the middle of the night. Otherwise, I don't really feel much pain. Which is nice because on Saturday we leave for DISNEYLAND!!! I cannot wait.

So my question is... I am thinking about getting some sort of pillow to use at night to help with the pain. Any suggestions?I have heard good things about the snoogie pillow.

I am not sure how it would work with the tossing and turning from side to side? I was thinking of something smaller, like a wedge. I'd like to get one and try it before we go. Though it doesn't look like this pillow is travel sized LOL!!!

Any thoughts or opinions would be appreciated :)


  1. during my pregnancy my dear sweet husband surprised me one night with a boppy for pregnancy. It was the most wonderful thing he has ever bought me!
    I couldn't sleep without it. I am a big girl and my back hurt SO bad but the pillow helped ease the pain on my back and let me get some rest.
    Go for it, get the pillow!

  2. I went with a smaller, regular-sized pillow cuz I was heap, lol. I put it between my legs at night and it helped tremendously. Maybe something with memory foam? Small is better unless you have a king size bed.

  3. So the boppy for pregnancy is different than the regular boppy for breastfeeding? I'll have to check into that.

    Sara, I didn't even think about that... a full fledged pillow would probably get in Jeff's way too! Aww :(
