I'm a back sleeper. That's fine and good except when I'm stuffy. But that's The Targo's burden to bear - "for better or worse," and all that. New Cat - I love him, I really do - takes advantage of my weak position and sits on my lower abdomen and kneads me. I didn't mind so much before I started getting a tummy; now if feels like I'm being stabbed from the inside when his large, jackrabbit feet tread on me. Ouch.
Rumor has it there comes a point in pregnancy where you're not supposed to sleep on your back. As Amy would say "Or your baby will burst into flames!" I'm trying to train myself to sleep on my side. Man, is that hard! But I try. I've got a pillow between my knees and I hug another one. Of course, New Cat comes and chills on my achy hip. (Ouch again.) And it just doesn't work. In the morning, I wake up on my back, with one cat between my feet, one cat by my leg, and my left arm thrown over The Targo's face. (This acrobatic sleeping is why I purchased this item.)
Anybody have advice on how to stay on my side? I thought about putting a cat on either side of me, but then I might end up with squished Mystic. I'm not sure that's covered under "for better or worse."
