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.

Liquid Chalk spray! Chalk Idea #7

Last week we tried out the fizzing sidewalk chalk- click here to read that review. This week it is liquid chalk spray.  They are a bit similar but yet different.  Here is how to make it: Supplies: 1 tsp. washable tempura paint 1 cup of hot water 1/2 cup of cornstarch squirt of dishwashing liquid 1 squirt bottle- I found them at the dollar store 1.  Add cornstarch to one cup of hot water whisking to mix so that there are no clumps. 2.  Add one teaspoon of washable tempura paint and a quirt of dishwashing liquid.  Mix well. 3.  Pour it into your squirt bottles and shake well. 4.  Go have fun!!!   This kept my daughters attention much longer the the fizzy chalk last week.  I also think this was easier to work with and just more fun in general.  I love seeing the chalk wet but then to see it dry.  I think it dried darker so it was fun to see the changes.  :)  Ready, Set, Go!  Have some fun!
