“The Snake” is what my husband calls my pregnancy pillow.
Last night, my Leachco All Nighter was set free from the big black trash bag it has been shoved in for the last year and a half.
I’ll give you a minute to head over and read My #1 Pregnancy Must Have from September 2010…run…go now…
You’ll notice that I mention the behemoth takes up almost 1/2 a king sized bed.
We no longer have a king sized bed so when I brought the pillow out last night my husband said, “Oh no! Not the snake!”
He was probably thinking there is no way that thing is going to fit and would proceed to tell me I couldn’t use it.
I was thinking, “I’m using this pillow no matter what!” It’s that good.
I am happy to report to all you pregnant women with a queen sized bed that YOU CAN comfortably USE THIS PILLOW!
I just asked my husband if he noticed the pillow at all last night. His report: Not really. Maybe a little on my leg.
This is coming from a man who can’t sleep if anything touches him!
You’re probably wondering why in the world I felt drawn to reunite with my old friend.
Baby #6 is on the way!
Although none of the timing makes any sense we are BEYOND thrilled about this new blessing. I’m accustomed to moving during pregnancy so our temporary transition to California life won’t be the main stress in my little brain.
I’m trying to accept that I will have a child not born in Texas, with a midwife that is not my midwife , thousands of miles away from family and I don’t even want to begin looking at homebirth costs!
I think it is worth mentioning how funny it is that snakes have been popping up everywhere lately. Last night as I dreamed about writing this post (yes, I am that dedicated, ha!) my friend was posting her own story about a snake. I don’t normally link to non-cloth diaper blogs but her post was hilarious.

Then as I’m writing this post my husband sitting across from me tells me about some crazy water moccasin story. I’m really not fond of snakes so I’m wondering if I’m being warned to watch where I step.
We live on 4.5 acres with lots of trees, tall grass and rocks. I was raised in the city but I’m pretty sure that is a recipe for snakes. Should I own a snake bite kit? I know the chances are small but still!
We warned the kids tonight that if they see a snake RUN. Just RUN.
Any snake stories you’d like to share? Or pregnancy must haves? You know they go hand in hand and all.
