The past few weeks have been full of holiday cheer, good tidings, and continuous traveling. This traveling, so I thought, was the reason for my lack of sleep, but this turned out to be wishful thinking. The fact, so I’ve been told, is that sleeping just becomes very uncomfortable during late pregnancy. Am I supposed to just accept this?
Well, my search for answers began this morning and ended about the time I decided to write this post. I found a nice thread on The Bump where several others were commiserating about the piercing pelvic pain that was keeping them up at night. A few suggestions were made: a chiropractor (which insurance doesn’t cover and Josh doesn’t support), a physical therapist (who has time for those exercises?), and a body pillow (where would I store this behemoth contraption?).
At this point, I may just continue with my pillow fort and purchase a pregnancy sleep wedge, which seems like the most economical option. However, I plan to keep experimenting with sleep options in hope that something is more comfortable. And, all in all, my tune has changed about wanting the baby to arrive on his due date. He can come early anytime now 🙂
