Rest in the Man Chair

Well, it looks like I have a new sleeping location.

I slept off and on last night while tossing and turning in bed. Kurt woke me up (as he does every morning) to say goodbye to me around 6:15, and gave me more medicine. I woke up again two hours later (I've been waking up about every 2 hours) at 8 and was awake enough to NOT want my bed anymore but too tired to even think about staying awake. So I moved to the recliner in the living room. You know, the overstuffed, gigantic recliner that I inherited when I married my lovely husband (it was his gift to himself after he finished medical school). I literally slept another solid 3 hours in that chair. I was astounded. I woke up at 11:00 and first felt lazy, but then I felt really grateful for any amount of sleep. So yes, it's midday and I'm just now about to eat my Honeycomb. I still don't know if I can sleep the entire night in the chair (I seriously think I would miss Kurt...how clingy am I?), but I know I'll probably be spending more and more time there.

So thank you, "manly recliner", for finally giving me sleep.

And to think that you actually thought about giving away that chair. I'm glad you're able to get some sleep.

When I was pregnant, I LOVED our recliner and learned to sleep there ALL night! It's prepping you for sleeping in it with a baby when they WONT sleep in their own bed!ha!

This made me laugh not at you but at the memories! I spent nearly every third trimester in the recliner with both babies because i was SO uncomfortable!!! The kids liked it too-for some reason the only way they would sleep for the first eight or so weeks was on my chest in that recliner LOL

The great thing about your last post and this one is that they are all signs that THE END IS NEAR! Yeah!!!! When Kurt is off next, get him to rub your lower back and hips while you lay on your side, with your head propped comfortably on a pillow or his lap. If you can do this while watching a little t.v. or listening to music right before you go to bed, it may help you to relax a little more. There are so many muscles, joints and ligaments stretching and adjusting right now....getting your body ready to deliver, it's hard to get comfortable. -And hey, a little extra pampering always helps.
