Sleepless in Seattle (I mean Los Angeles)

I am now 17 weeks pregnant and at 16 weeks was told to start sleeping on my left side. Apparently there is an artery that runs down your back and right side that delivers nutrients via your blood to the growing baby and by sleeping on your left side, the kid is getting those nutrients. Its been 5 long sleepless nights as somehow I am just not made for sleeping on my left side. The problem is I don't know where to put my left arm. I have tried to the front, to the back, above my head and just about every other contorted way and now I have a horrible shoulder pain that radiates down to my wrist.

I went back to the doctor this morning and was so happy to be told to go back to alternating between my back and left side!! I can't tell you how excited I am about the sleep I will be getting in 12 hours. So today I dedicate this blog to all things bedtime!!
