Ode to a Wedge: The Pregnancy Pillow of my Dreams


I feel it is my duty to write today about my amazing experice with a wedge pillow last night.

Here she is, in all her glory...
Yes, I realize it may seem smally and slightly hospital-like in color, but this item is a dream come true. As of late, I cannot sleep AT ALL, and I came to realize that the random and yet severe pains that I encounter while trying to rest may in fact be due to lack of support under the 30-pound mass that now hangs off my body(shout out to Aunt Melanie who helped me figure this out). The first time I went to buy this amazing invention, a sales person convinced me otherwise. Out of the side of her mouth she whispered "Don't do it, that thing doesn't work". I do love a personal testimony, so I put it back quickly. I wish I could track her down....
ANYWHO, these fabulous wedges come in all shapes, sizes and colors. This particular one can be found here in Montgomery at Storkland for about $11.00. BEST $11.00 YOU WILL SPEND. You may also find other versions at www.target.com and www.amazon.com . My style (pictured above) can be found at Amazon, but it is currently out of stock. Looks like word spread fast. And be warned, mothers-to-be, this thing is nothing but hard foam wrapped in cheap cotton fabric. I had to shake the box a few times to make sure there was something actually in there. Good things come in light, unattractive packages.
In closing let me say, I slept through my alarm this morning, and that's something I haven't done in ages.

I'm going to have to get one of these...I think I must wake up 10 - 15 times a night.
