You guys. It’s me! I’m here today! I’ve been off in babyland playing with little V. She’s absolutely perfect. We’re still trying to figure out a routine, but we’re getting there! It’s just all about having patience, right? RIGHT?!?!
These last few days, I’ve been missing pregnancy. I’m totally crazy because my pregnancy was a tough one. But I miss the aches and pains and kicks! I’ve been missing it so much that I’ve been feeling “phantom kicks”. That’s how I know I’ve officially lost it. I gotta get some sleep. I’ve decided to share a few of my must-haves for prego women. Being pregnant is tricky business. Not only do you give up your body for nine months, but you also give up sleep, some of your fave foods (hope not!), and your sanity.
There’s a point in pregnancy when you become so uncomfortable that you can’t actually sleep. This is when you need a nice pillow. I’m not talking about a body pillow that can be found at TJ Maxx or Home Goods. I’m talking about a legit pillow that is made specifically for pregnant women. Enter: Bumpnest. This is the pillow of all pillows, my friends. The cream of the crop. One pillow to rule them all. It’s huge, soft, snuggly, AND pretty. And we all know that looks are what matter most in this world.
In the early stages of my pregnancy, I had major trouble falling asleep. I built a fort of regular pillows around my body. Logan was super uncomfortable and eventually ran out of room for himself. To remedy the situation, I ordered a Snoogle pillow. I instagrammed about the Snoogle and asked peeps for their opinions on the pillow. Some loved it. Some hated it. Turns out, I hated it, too. It was super stiff and wouldn’t bend easily to fit my sexy prego bod. After a few weeks of giving the pillow a try, I knew that it just wasn’t meant to be.
I snagged me one of the Bumpnest pillows and haven’t looked back since. I actually had tears of joy in my eyes when I first laid down on the pillow. It was soft and squishy enough and allowed me to relax! Holy hell! Finally! I was so sad to be at the end of my pregnancy when I discovered this pillow. However, I still use it almost every night! It’s perfect for all you prego women out there. It’s a pain to sleep on your side, but it doesn’t have to be. Some nights, I have to fight with Logan, AND TAGG, for the pillow!
I’m currently having an affair with the honeysuckle peacock. So pretty, no? Many of you instagrammers mentioned that you were wanting one. Well, guess what?

I will go to the grave defending the wonder that is the Bumpnest pillow. If you are with child (and even if you aren’t!), I urge you to pick one of these guys up. You won’t wake up. You just won’t.
