4 Days

It's 5:00 am, and I've been awake since 3:30. This is because when I got up at 3:30 to go pee, it was the fourth time I had gotten up tonight, and I couldn't go back to sleep. My shoulder hurt from sleeping on my side for who knows how many months (I am naturally a stomach sleeper. You side sleepers--what the hell do you do with your shoulders when sleeping on your sides? My shoulder always curls under, which makes it hurt), so I couldn't get comfortable, and in 20 minutes I needed to pee again, so I just gave up.

Not to get all political, but as I've gone through this pregnancy, I've really wondered how anyone could experience the process and still believe in intelligent design. Design, OK, maybe, but intelligent design? No freaking way.

As a side sleeper, you need firm fluffy (foam or Tempurpedic) pillows.

This is why I hate down pillows -- all of the feathers squash to the side of your head.

I cannot imagine sleeping on my stomach, even with flat pillows.

I have to say that my one that wouldn't budge remains my most stubborn. Just to make you feel better, and all. ;)

Hang in there (as if you had much choice) & fingers crossed your next post is soon and has baby pics!

The pillows are not the problem--my head is sufficiently supported. It's the ribcage: in order for the ribs to actually touch the mattress, the shoulder has to squash out of the way. I've taken to putting a rolled-up towel under my ribs in order to lift them off the mattress so the shoulder has somewhere to go, but this is a poor solution at best.
