I don't think I could lay down while Hubby drives. How could I tell him how to drive if I was laying down and not able to see? :D
I think a pillow would have been best, we used a folded up bath-towel over my belly and under my seatbelt. I braced my left elbow on the armrest, holding my belly with my hand and held the OMG-handle with my right hand. Big leather seats, I slide on leather seats.
Felling better/better. Belly is a little 'tight' and I can't straighten up all the way unless I do it slowly. I want to stretch so bad, but if I stretch back too far, my belly isn't strong enough to pull me forward. I've been using Hubby as a sort of physical therapist. I stand facing a wall and have him stand behind me. I lean my back on his and he leans forward a little, then bends side/side a few times and then stands me upright again. Doing this, I can use my belly muscles as much/little as I like and I feel it is helping them to regain their strength w/out fear of hurting them.
I have the ability of single-minded determination and accurate project focu....Hey, look, a cat!
UC is pretty darn crappy, but if you can't laugh at yourself, you'll cry.
I'd much rather laugh.
