sleep deprivation

The time has come in this pregnancy where getting into a comfortable position to sleep is almost impossible.  Last night I was in some pain, and then I was hot, and then I still have this nasal junk!  With those things together it made me so frustrated!  I have been having a lot of pressure on my pelvic bone which is not fun and on top of that my hips have been very achy the last couple days. I always get up to use the bathroom and the hardest thing for me is getting in and out of bed... I am very short and my bed is a bit high off the ground.  I was just talking to my pastor's wife and telling her I don't waddle yet... pretty sure I have a good waddle now!  With my daughter I had pain in my lower back from the sciatic nerve, but with this one it is a whole different type of pain!   

I serve an awesome faithful God so I am seeking him for some relief today!  I know I can ask my daughter to pray for me and she will!  :)  Feel free to say some prayers for me also! :) 

On top of prayer I think it is time to go pillow shopping!  :)   


Praying for you! Hope you are able to get some sleep tonight. The last couple weeks are hard, but they are so worth it when you meet that new baby finally!

Will keep you in my thoughts and prayers so that your final weeks will be a tad more comfortable. But the end result is oh so worth it!

Do you use a body pillow? My wife found that to be very helpful to get comfortable at night, during both pregnancies.
Thanks so much for following Practical Parenting! I hope you get some rest soon...I know the feeling. Thinking good thoughts for you!

Sounds good. Thanks for coming by and for following me. I am now following you.
Well I have purchased a body pillow and at times I love it and at times I throw it off the bed. LOL I am just always moving around.

Knot Genie Review and Giveaway

If you have a little girl and have not heard of the Knot Genie then you need to watch the following video:   "The Knot Genie™ and Teeny Genie™ Detangling Brushes were created for every mom that has endured the foot stomping and screaming matches that come with brushing their child's hair. With the Knot Genie, even the curliest, most knotted up hair practically slips through the unique bristle configuration – gently and painlessly. Try the Knot Genie on your kids (or on yourself) – you'll be amazed by the ease of brushing, as well as how it virtually stops breakage and split ends. You've wished for hair brushing standoffs to end. Wish granted." My Review:  Thanks to the Knot Genie for sending me the product to conduct my review.  I was not paid for this review and all opinions expressed are 100% mine.  I know I have grown so tired of my daughter coming to tears every morning when we did her hair. I was becoming to think she was the most

Dry Idea: Deodorant Review and Giveaway

I know most of you know I was at kids camp last week and I think I mentioned the humidity and heat that we had that week!  I was daring as I only brought my new Dry Idea  deodorant  that I had never used prior.  I had no idea if it was going to keep me from smelling like B.O or if I was going to have sweaty pits. So how did the Dry Idea hold up to the hot and humid days at kids camp???  Arms raised high during worship in the morning and in the evening!  :)  I was dry and I did not stink!  :) WOOT WOOT!  I had the unscented brand and I usually do prefer a pretty scent but it worked and they do have scents which include powder fresh and cotton dry that I might try in the future.  :) The Dry Idea Roll-On is 24 hour protection, fast drying MicroCotton Formula, hypo allergenic, and contains Vitamin E.  :) Don't like roll on's??  They do offer Clear Gel and an Invisible Solid.  :) Dry Idea provided a free sample of their Advanced Dry roll-On so I could review them.  However,
