Helloooo my looooooves!!!!
GIRL! I am 27 weeks pregnant. How the heck did this happen so fast? Time flies when you’re stressed out and having anxiety attacks. Hahaha….
Just kidding… Thats not how that saying goes.
Between Penelope’s multiple dental surgeries and Luke trying to die on me, oh and being pregnant, my anxiety has been at an all time high. Wanna know what happens when I get anxious? Don’t worry, I’ll tell you. I know you’re dying to know. Straight up insomnia and restless legs! Every time I get pregnant, I get the WORST restless legs and when my anxiety level is high, its almost unbearable. Some nights, I will literally JUMP out of bed, walk thru the house before I even realize what I’m doing. I have tried everything to prevent & treat it: Unisom, melatonin, essential oils, relaxing teas, meditation, and magnesium capsules and topical spray. Some of those things actually made my symptoms worse: melatonin especially. My doctor told me “maybe you should work out more. Tired legs can’t get restless.” Let me just tell you…. that was the MOST worthless advice I think I’ve ever gotten. When I workout super hard, it makes it worse. It is always so frustrating.
With this pregnancy, up until 3 weeks ago, I had just accepted the fact that my sleep was going to be miserable and my legs were going to kick nonstop every night. That was until about three weeks ago when I received a weighted blanket from MW Blankets. My focus for this blanket was only that it was going to help my anxiety throughout the day. I had NO clue it was going to help my restless legs so significantly. I’ve been getting the BEST sleep. What pregnant girl says that?! None of them. I know, by now, I’m usually defeated by the lack of sleep so I’m up nesting like a crazy person. I haven’t had that situation, at all.
Moral of the story, if you’re struggling with sleep whether it be because of insomnia or restless legs or some other ailment, you need a weight blanket from MW Blanket. My blanket is 12 lbs and I feel like its the perfect weight for me. The owner is easily accessible through DM on IG and is always so helpful. She’s answered all of my questions so quickly and efficiently.
When you buy yours, tag me. I want to see how its helping you with your sleep pattern.
May your day be full of love & laughter!
