This week is definitely an improvement. It was all about Mother’s Day weekend and I was so excited to take this opportunity to celebrate myself. I ordered a special Mother’s Day gift to myself and noticed it came a couple days early. I was beaming with joy!! I opened my big box to reveal my PREGNANCY PILLOW! I was so excited!! As I took it out of the box, I could see Erin’s eyes fill with envy. Erin sleeps with a minimum of 5 pillows around him every night so the thought of a massive pillow to completely wrap around his body was his dream come true. I took it into our guest room to test it and it was the snuggliest, most heavenly group of clouds. Thank you Tyson for the photobomb (and wtf is wrong with my foot… it looks like it belongs to Shrek).
The relaxing moment didn’t last long as I was quickly booted out so Erin could snuggle up in it. This is what happened next:
I’m still trying to figure out how to best sleep with the pillow. I may update this in a couple weeks with different options because I’m struggling with the position pictured above. I woke up the first night with a huge knot in my neck!
