One of pregnancy side effects that has been plaguing me in the past few weeks is the whole lack of sleep issue. Aside from getting up to go to the bathroom, I (a former back sleeper) have been having difficulty sleeping on my side. It really bothers my hips and I just cant seem to get comfortable. My sister in law lent me her wedge pillow which was helping support my belly, but I was still having awful sleeps. And no one loves/needs a tired/cranky/already hyper emotional lady around at home or the office.
Monday night my Mum and I hit up Babies R Us to have a panic attack/register for all the baby stuff we need. I came across this really neat looking pregnancy pillow that I thought was worth a try. So since Monday night this is how I have been sleeping:

Poor Gus Gus…you aren’t even born yet and you already have to worry about what giant nerds your parents are!
