I know that the best position to sleep in while pregnant is on your side (especially your left side) but I can’t really sleep on my right side because my jaw will lock (it’s weird I know) and lately in my pregnancy, it’s almost impossible to breathe when I lay on my left side. SO HOW AM I SUPPOSED TO SLEEP?! I’ve been sleeping on my left side but since it’s gotten hard to breathe, I’ll fall asleep on my back (and I’ll go back and forth from my back to one of my sides throughout the night while I’m sleeping). Or I’ll usually fall asleep in between being on my left side and being on my back. Does that make sense? But I will almost always wake up on my back. I’m trying not to over-react about this because it’s what I always do but websites make it so hard because they’re all like “DON’T LAY ON YOUR BACK IT WILL CAUSE HARM TO YOUR BABY” and I’m just like ”THEN WHAT DO I DO?!?!?!” I know I’m not on my back for long periods, because if I do happen to fall asleep on my back, I can feel myself moving to a side throughout the night and the jaw/barely breathing doesn’t really bother me because I’m already sleeping. But I’m afraid to be on my back AT ALL, it’s just hard because it’s impossible to stay in the same position throughout the night and I can’t fall asleep laying on my sides.
Thankfully I see my OB/GYN tomorrow, I’ll talk to him about it.
Today I am 30 weeks pregnant. I have been so excited to hit this mark since the beginning of my pregnancy. 30 weeks just sounds so close! In 10 weeks (give or take a couple), I will be a mother. I will have a daughter. My life will be completely changed and I am perfectly okay with that. I have never anticipated something so much in my life. I feel my child move around every single day and in 70 days, I will be able to see her move. See her laugh and cry and sleep and do everything else babies do. I will love her more and more every day, which seems impossible because I love her so much already. I know that having a child is tough, but if you have a child or are pregnant, then you know that no matter what, it is worth it. I have never in my life felt how she makes me feel and it is the greatest feeling in the world. Words could never describe it. All I can really say for anyone to understand is that I love her with everything I have and more. She’s not taking my life away, she’s adding to it. And I can’t wait to give her every single thing she deserves. I can’t wait to be a mom. I can’t wait to meet my daughter. Just 10 more weeks :)
