Don't tell me what to do baby book!

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!

I know what you mean, as soon as the doc said no more back sleeping that is all I wanted to do!

you need to keep the camera in the bedroom to catch Troy with the pillow! And yay for the nutritionist- hopefully you start putting on some weight- but don't fret too much since your dr. says everything is looking great and you are being proactive!
oh yeah- one last thing- your ass is still hot

The frustrating part about not being able to sleep on my back is that it's the only thing that takes some of the pressure off my back.

We should go for nachos soon, that'll add some pounds.
