I've never actually given a Wednesday helpful tip, as so many other bloggers do, but I'll ask your forgiveness in advance for the inane subject matter of this introductory WFMW.
Problem: Imagine a small whale, forlorn and beached, unable to flip over, destined to remain in one single position for the rest of his blubbery life, unless rescued.
Or, if that's too far-removed, picture yourself attaching a medium-sized watermelon to the front of your abdomen using, perhaps, a belt. You lie down in your bed for some relief, but for obvious reasons, you can lie neither on your stomach or your back...I mean, there's a watermelon there, for Pete's sake. So you choose instead to lie on one side. But after a few hours in this position, you desire to switch directions. Rolling over is involved. Easier said than done, considering, if you'll recall, there's a watermelon strapped to you.
This is how a woman in the second half of her pregnancy feels during the night. Or at least this pregnant woman does. I realized my already-interrupted sleep was becoming more interrupted by the annoying need to roll over. It felt like a monumental task at times, getting that localized extra weight to shift comfortably into the new position.
Solution: Satin sheets. Ah, so very comfy, and even better, slippery! Yes, I decided an inexpensive set of slick satin sheets would be well worth the investment if it meant a better night's sleep. And now I can honestly say I don't wake myself up anymore from needing to roll over. It's virtually effortless, much like flipping a fried egg in a well-buttered frying pan.
