I'm 37 weeks pregnant with my second child. I know, uf.
One of the things that I learned in child birth class (and while being a woman and having a crampy back and legs for a week a month every year for the last 20 years) is that heat feels good on sore muscles.
I wanted an awesome heat pad for my back during labor, they are a little expensive. And I feel kinda dumb buying one when I can make one.
So instead of this....
I opened for this...
I cut up one of Jeff's old denim "dress" shirts. Which I was very happy to do. And found this pretty orange thread from the lot of sewing stuff in the case I got a the thrift I referred to in my last post.
It is 18x8 and fits really well across my lower back. I filled it with a cup of uncooked rice in each compartment and the weight of it feels SO good.
I'm excited to use it in labor, considering I've been using it daily. :)
I used a well written tutorial I found on Pinterest, here.
