The New Arrival!

When Tom and I got married, My Grandma gave us a King sized bed that was about 10 years old, and in good shape, but the previous owner had died in it. Slightly unromantic :) I don't mean to complain at all. We loved having so much room for the kids to jump in bed with us, and it had a faux brass bed frame, which was cute. When we moved to Minnesota I wasn't sure how much room we would have in the moving van, so we decided to give it away. This was under the impression that we would be absolutely filthy rich when we got here, and the first thing we would by was a new and incredible absolutely wonderful bed. Then, life hit. After hospital trips and Idaho trips and a mortgage and a new car and student loans and paying off a credit card, we kept saying maybe next month. For the last 5 months Tom and I have been sharing this twin size mattress.

This usually either meant that I woke up at 3 am to go sleep on the couch, or if I started out the night with a back ache, I would just start on the couch and Tom would bring the mattress out to sleep next to me. Every night when we would lay down on the mattress, I would either fall off, or Tom would huddle next to the wall and give me the most possible room. Most nights I would wake up with about 6 inches of my pregnant belly over the edge of the bed.
So needless to say, Tom and I were anxiously awaiting our new bed. We finally decided that it had come to the top of our priority list. We wanted to have it before Enoch arrived, because my babies usually end up in bed with me and there just wouldn't have been room. Plus Hyrum was on the crib mattress, because we were on his mattress, so it had to be done.
Last night we went to Costco and bought this 12 inch memory foam mattress.

I am positive I have never slept so good in my entire life! I fell asleep and woke up to the alarm in the exact same position. I felt completely rested with no aches and pains. The hardest part about the bed was getting up this morning. Tom even joked about calling in sick, because we were so comfortable! I honestly feel like I could remain pregnant and comfortable forever with this bed. ahhh, lifes little luxuries!

You seem to be having fun with your post titles! ;o) Congratulations on your new bed! I've wondered if memory foam mattresses are all they're cracked up to be...

Getting much sleep in your third trimester is hard enough as it is. When I was 8 months along and we moved to Reno, we had to sleep on an air mattress for 4 or 5 nights until our stuff arrived and I thought I was going to die! I've heard those memory foam ones are amazing. Glad you can be all comfy now!
