i decided to title this post Jim Jams because that’s what i call pyjamas. no, i’m not five. but it’s easier than trying to decide if i should go with the British spelling of pyjamas or the wholly more sensible American spelling of pajamas. PJs, jim jams, pyjamas, pajamas, sleepwear – whatever you call it, do you wear it? i technically don’t. every night i throw on leggings and a vest. i don’t like anything bulky (can’t sleep in t-shirts) or with buttons. that’s why pyjama sets have never appealed to me.
but since the pregnancy i have felt constricted by my growing belly and body, and sleep has become a precious asset… i went through a weird growth spurt a couple of weeks ago that left my ribs so sore that i had to lie on a mountain of pillows, and yet no position was comfortable. (does ANYONE out there who has been pregnant gone through the same painful ribs experience? when women ask about my pregnancy and i tell them the rib story they all look at me like i am crazy!) i have also started waking up around 5.30am every morning, which i don’t mind – i understand my body is preparing me for sleepless nights and early mornings.
anyway so, maybe it’s time to get more comfortable? perhaps silk pajamas are the way to go. while i was researching pajamas (yes, my work is very important) i came across Sleeper – they have really cool pajama sets, robes and even “pajama suits” that you can ostensibly wear from day to night… i am, perhaps, not cool enough to pull that off. here are a bunch of pajamas i like though.
