Mommy Talk and a Vacation!

First things first - we're heading out bright and early Monday morning for our vacation. We're going to be gone about 3 weeks, yes, 3 weeks! Wow! I'll be able to post here and there as I'll have access to a computer, but I just won't have much time to comment on all your blogs while I'm gone! (although I will at least try to keep up with them in bloglines and make sure I don't miss out on anything LOL) Sorry I haven't been around commenting much this week either; this was a "MOPS" week for me, and being on Steering (I'm finance) it takes 2 days out of my week, Kayla's on summer break, and preparing for our vacation I just didn't get to comment like usual.

So on to this week's Mommy Talk question:

What was your favorite "could not do without" maternity items?

The first thing I thought of was my body pillow! That helped me sleep much more comfortably especially in the later months of my pregnancy; although Joe was glad when I finally put it up in the closet as I'm sure it felt like a 3rd person in the bed!

I also couldn't do without the "What to Expect When You're Expecting Pregnancy Organizer." I loved having everything in one place for me to record all those little things that I otherwise would probably have forgotten! I like to read back through it on what I was feeling on certain days, when I felt her move the first time, etc. Treasured memories now!

I'll try this again since I just broke my own record for typos. LOL

I slept with a big pillow between my knees at the end of my pregnancies, too. There's no other way to get comfortable. Actually, I liked it so much I continued to sleep that way for years and years.

Three weeks! Don't know where you're going but with three weeks off, who cares? Lucky you. We're all going to be so disappointed if you don't spend the whole three weeks sitting there reading our blogs. LOL

Have a wonderful time, Michelle. And then come back and tell us all about it.
