What to do...

Well, the pains of pregnancy have already started...and I'm only 10 weeks!
Kahili and I went in for my first appointment with Dr. Judd last week and he is awesome! He is Catholic and originally from LA, close to my house. He is super nice and took lots of time to get to now us, which I really appreciated. When I asked him about back pain, this is what he said, "Women who don't normally have back pain, get back pain during pregnancy. Women who already have back problems get worse and worse and WORSE." great, just great.
So last Tuesday, my back started acting up. Every couple steps with my right leg, I get a sharp pain in my sacrum on the right side and I almost feel like my leg is going to go out.
I heard about some pregnancy pillows that help with back and hip problems so I got online and found this, Boppy Total Body Pillow. Kahili and I went to Target and got it. It originally came with this cover on it:
But, I just so happen to have this wonderfully talented aunt who can make ANYTHING! I took the pillow over to her house on Sunday and we made this:

I LOVE it! It's great because the brown side is soft flannel and will be perfect for Winter and the green hawaiian print fabric will be great for the Summer. I've used it for a week now and I love it! It's so comfy! Auntie Lynn and I are going to be working on projects every week so I'll post pictures of our progress :)


  1. I can't tell from the picture, but is that the same Boppy that is a nursing pillow too? It's a great pillow. Boppys are awesome!

  2. yeah i think it is! its great cuz it can be used now and then when the baby is born too! :)

  3. oh my gosh i want one of those sooo bad!!!! i think im going to spoil myself with one for this pregnancy!

  4. DO IT! it is so great and you sew too so you could make an awesome cover for it! :)
