Pillows!

Anyone have to use a ton of pillows to get comfy at night? I remember doing this with both pregnancies last time but usually later on. This time, I can't get comfy and my legs keeps falling asleep.
I like 2 for my head. I have a boppy comfort pillow for pregnancy between my legs that supports my belly too. Then i have a huge long pillow between me and DH to support my back, but he thinks its to divide us. Which is partly true. I have a name for that pillow but it's not appropriate to say. then sometimes I have one for the bottom of the bed to prop my feet. Good thing we have a big bed!
I'm also getting up to pee several times a night and eat something. The baby(DS2) is sleeping better then me most nights now. ughh!

YES!!! Except pillows aren't cutting it.. I'm adding blanket after blanket after blanket.. and then getting wrapped up in them, which is comfy to go to sleep but when I have to get up to go to the bathroom, it's a b**** to get undone from. :roll:

You're so not alone, though!

So.. um.. what's the name you give the pillow-o-seperation? Lol

Well if you must know.... We call it the c*** blocker (another word for penis) I did not make that up! My coworker had mentioned it before and I thought it was hilarious! DH doesn't like it! haha

I got a snoogle pillow last time and it was glooooooorious!! I loaned it to a friend last year and although she is done with it, I haven't told anyone about this pregnancy yet so it would be suspicious if I asked for it back.

We are telling DHs family at a trip this weekend and then il tell mine then, finally, our friends. I just want to tell now so I don't have to feel like I'm lying to them! We've been waiting so we can DHs family first in person.

I can't wait for my snoogle back...I like it even when I'm not pregger.

Bahahahaha!!! DH sleeps in another room because of our schedules. His alarm goes off about 2 hours earlier than mine and once it goes off I can't get back to sleep. So I don't have to block anything, lol. But I am super uncomfy too. I can't seem to find any combination that is working. Sad

I'm using a snoogle too! Doesn't help much I still end up sleeping on my back. Which is no good.

Are legs falling asleep a pregnancy thing? It's been happening to me a lot lately.

Not sure! Don't remember having it before with previous pregnancies, but I'm sure it could be!
