Switching Sides

For the past 7 years S and I have had our own sides of the bed. If you are looking at the bed from the bottom, S is on the left and I am on the right. It does not matter where in the world the bed is located, we always sleep on the same side......until now. I only know one couple who does not have set sides of the bed. They view it as a competition and whomever goes to bed first, gets to pick the side of the bed that they would like to sleep on that night. This has always fascinated me and tonight will be the first night that I get to try out the other mysterious side of the bed :)

In our bedroom, S's side is closer to the bathroom and my side is closer to the window. I do LOVE my side and enjoy the AC blowing directly on me but with the pregnancy pillow, body pillow, pregnancy wedge pillow and the 2 other pillows I sleep makes getting up by the window a very difficult task. Two to three times a night I have to move the heavy pillows out of my way (usually knocking S in the head) as fast as I can, slide down into the little alley way and "run" around the bed to the bathroom so that I can make it there on time. It has become a very difficult task.

The plan was to switch sides once the baby came anyway (S's side is where the bassinet will have to go) but it looks like we are going to have to make the switch a month or two earlier. So when I return from the lake I will say good-bye to the Right Side of the bed after 7 years. It is a little strange for me but I have not slept well in months so I figure it can't hurt anything. I just hope that S is able to adjust and that he will find more peace on his new side of the bed :)

Interesting topic! We have set sides of the bed and it doesn't matter where we are, I cannot sleep if I am not on the left. Crazy! I hope you do well switching. Dropping by from SITS to say hello!

Oh, I hope this will help you get some sleep. It's too cruel that pregnancy keeps us awake when we really need to be story up some sleep to hold us over during that newborn stage.

Thanks for stopping by my blog yesterday. I hope you'll come back and visit again!

We definately have our "sides" of the bed. I don't think Don can sleep on my side if he had too! Thanks for all the comments on my blog, it has been an exhausting experience to go from one to two kids! I wouldn't change it for the world, but boy am I tired! Take care!
