So, I got a boppy pillow

Boppy body pillowI recently was able to get my hands on a Boppy body pillow (The exact one in the picture). I was so very excited, because I’m needing the extra love and comfort right now. At night when I’m getting ready for sleep it’s like I’m entering a war zone. My bed is uncomfortable, my pillows are solider of the dark side, and my sheets like to fight with me.

So me and my best friend who is also prego, were talking about boppy pillows and how she had so many pillows on her bed to sleep at night, just to be comfortable. She has one under her butt, one between her legs, one under her back, one behind her head, one levitating her feet, and one scooped up under her belly. (Just a little exaggeration humor) But the girl has a lot of pillows.

So we starting talking about the benefits of a Boppy body pillow. How it’s one big pillow, that reaches from head to toe. You can rest your head, stomach and legs on it all at the same time. So after are conversation I think we were both slobbering over the benefits of having one gigantic “husband” like pillow.

Once I got minds I couldn’t wait to try it. I wanted to unwrap it in the car. But of course I waited until I got home after a long day with my mother and daughter shopping. I went straight to the bed after I grabbed myself something to eat. I unwrapped it put it on the bed and got to working it out. For the first hour I kinda wrestled back and forth with it trying to find the right position. The I grew way to tired gave in and just left it however it was and went to sleep.

Threw the night I tossed and turn with it trying to get the position right, I also have another long body pillow to help give me a little more support. So I had the boppy in the front, the body pillow in the back. Then the body in the front the boppy in the back. I can’t remember what I did but I just said freak it somewhere in there, gave in, and went back to sleep “kinda”.

The next day I decided to looked at the packaging because something wasn’t quiet right about this boppy and I could not figure it out. So when I looked at the pictures to my amazement I had placed it wrong. I thought the pillow was versatile enough that I could put it in just about any position and it would be comfortable. But that is simply not true. So when I put it as described on the package I got a little more relief.

That was several days ago. I still struggle with it a little. But once I get it just right I’m pretty happy. It’s very good when I laying in bed and I fold it in half and put it behind me to prop me up. That is one of the most comfortable positions with the boppy.

So all in all I give the Boppy pillow a 3 out of 5.

Pregnant and dating

Being that I’m pregnant and single I don’t feel that my pregnancy should stop me from dating. I mean with all the stress there is in life I deserve to be able to go out and have some fun especially when my body is up to it. I don’t think I should allow my current state to determine my womanhood. Being that I am a woman and I still have desires.

I feel that it very important to maintain that separateness from being pregnant and being a woman. I still love to go out and enjoy myself, I still enjoy the company of a man, going to social gatherings and mingling. Right now there is a dance class I want to join and I need a partner. Which I think would be a great outlet for me, keep me active while I’m pregnant and keep me social.

There may be only so much I can do but the doesn’t mean I have to just sit alone and wait until the babies come. I think being  happy and enjoying ones self is the best thing you can do when you pregnant.

Parental Agreement for my unborn babies

Category:WikiProject Parliamentary Procedure

So the deal is I’m pregnant with twins and me and the unborn babies father aren’t together. So I want to do what is best for them. I know how it goes, do little dads come around when they want to and start making demands of what they want and how they want it. So instead of going threw that drama I want to do my best to put together a parental agreement now.

I’ve already pitched the idea but it doesn’t seem to be going over well. I strongly dislike when a person doesn’t take responsibility for the creation of a child beginning to end and put aside their needs. If a person is not going to stick around the woman, then why leave your children hanging in the balance until the last minute?

I would truly like to be civil and handle the situation out of court but I think the other party is forcing my hand. I believe that if I’m not able to get an agreeance now, it will be more difficult once they are born. At this point my main concern is that I’m healthy and supported. I truly do not have time for any person who doesn’t understand the importance of my babies. As this is also a high risk pregnancy, not having what you need by whom you need it can be very stressful.

So now I’m more on just giving up, and understanding that he will not put his children first.

Buying clothes for my little ones

Onesies on the Wall

I bought a few items for my babies. I know I have some ways to go but I couldn’t help it. It was at a garage sale and I need every deal I can get. The lady at the garage sale had a huge pile of baby items and she was selling them 50 cent a piece and they were all name brand. So I think I came across a winner. Most of the items were new or lightly worn. They were mostly onesies.

If I could recall for about the first 6 months my daughter was just in onesies. And she had so many outfits that went unused. So this time I’m trying to be smarter, which actually isn’t much of an option since I’m having to and I don’t have much money. But with my little girl money for the most part wasn’t an object and by the end of the 6 months I had 2 or 3 garbage bags full of clothes she couldn’t fit and never wore.

The pile of clothes at the garage sale were all girls items, so I had to pick my way threw to find items that were neutral since I don’t know what the sex of the babies are yet. Although I am hoping for a boy and girl.

Moving on and doing it on my own

As I get bigger and the babies grow inside of me, I have to be a stronger mommy. I have to relearn and gain back all that energy, positivity and strength I had with my first child but times 2.

Sometimes, I can’t help but to feel down about the situation I’m in, but then when I imagine there little faces, fingers and toes, I am reminded that if nothing else I am blessed. Life seems to throw me many curve balls and I can say I haven’t done well with some of them. But with new life coming my way I’m ready to move on and do it on my own.

Happiness for my children and me is my main goal. So I’m looking forward to moving and starting a new life. Being closer to those who support me, finding old and new things that make me happy. Challenging myself to do better and creating a legacy that my child and there children can be proud of. I know it will not be easy but it will be worth every piece of effort I own.

To my only child for the past 9 yrs. things haven’t been easy but I assure you it will get better. You are so excited to see the babies as you have always wanted siblings. I know you will be a great sister and helper as you are a wonderful daughter. You more the anyone deserve the best. As we start this new chapter in our lives, I thank God for bringing you into minds.
