So in "Your Pregnancy Week by Week" it says that week 16 is the cutoff for sleeping and relaxing on your back. I never had a desire to sleep or relax on my back until I was told that I COULDN'T. As Troy put it "you don't like being told what to do Sarah".
I had a horrible night of sleep - I woke up at 2 am and couldn't get back to bed. In my mind I kept thinking "if I could lay on my back I could totally fall asleep right now". I start resenting my back for tempting me (I hear it whisper "just lay on me Sarah...what harm could it do"?). Annoying!
I got up around 6:30 since I couldn't sleep, and when I came back in our room after my shower Troy was all snuggled up with my pink polka dot body pillow. I wish I had taken a photo because they looked like the world's best friends.
I also saw a nutritionist today, and the answer first plan is whole milk (shudder) and olive oil with everything! Going forward if I have fruit I have to have a slice of cheese or a handful of nuts, or dip it in peanut butter. No longer can I enjoy the plain joy of an apple. I start the plan on Saturday (ish) and hopefully I start packing on some pounds and filling out my pants again!
