Above are just a few of the lifesavers I have found during my pregnancy. If you do one thing for yourself (pregnant or not!), buy one of these bump nest pillows. They are HEAVENLY!! I sleep like a bear during hibernation every night and have zero discomfort sleeping since I’ve been sleeping with this thing. And if you do two things, keep a journal. I already get a kick out of reading my first couple entries from right after I found out I was pregnant. I can only imagine how valuable these memories are going to be in 20 or 30 years when our kiddos are grown and we are wishing we were back in the “good ‘ol days!” Slightly un-related….these are seriously feeling like THE days. The ones I will look back on as the best ones of my life. Early 20’s were way fun and being 17 and footloose and fancy free was the absolute shit but there’s something so fleeting and precious about these memories were making right now. I can tell they need to be savored. So I’m writing as much as I can remember (and for as long as I can manage to stay awake at night).
