Reclining Pregnant

I was never comfortable in bed, in any position.

Surrounded by pillows of all shapes and sizes was the only way I could fall asleep in bed.  Even still it was a struggle.  I needed a pillow between my knees, one behind my lower back, one tucked under my big belly, a couple for my neck and head. The quest for comfort was ridiculous. I bought three different body pillows over the course of my pregnancy.

However, in the tank I could lay down and rest at ease.  I could float on my belly and feel no pressure, no pain, just a good stretch for my stiff lower back.  I could float face up with no aching, no weight of the gigantic pregnant belly,no circulatory risk for the baby or myself, just comfort.  I could lay on my sides without hurting my hips.

That pool of salt water was the best mattress ever!

I could lay there and feel the baby.  Just me and baby, in our own quiet, peaceful, happy place.
