Have/Do you use one? I do (the Snoogle)
Pros/Cons: It's comfy and when I roll over I don't have to move it with me, but takes up a lot of room in the bed and can be pretty warm when you're already hot.
Does DH/SO mind it? He doesn't like that he can't snuggle easily with it there but he does like that since I leave in the morning before him he can then take it!

I do not have one and therefore the rest of the questions do not pertain to me. I feel so left out.

/sniffle

I didn't have one with my first pregnancy either. See my "weird habit" in TTCAL. I am probably the pickiest sleeper that exists.

I do however, sleep with a giant Stich stuffed animal. It's like having a half of a body pillow and helps my back from hurting.

I am already having trouble getting comfortable and end up bunching the blankets up to snuggle with. So, I think I will be getting one soon. As for DH, the poor guy has been on the couch the past three months, his smell and motion was not helping my severe nausea.(not that he smells bad, it's actually his deodorant that instantly makes me sick.) I'm thinking he likes it out there as he hasn't even asked if he can come back to bed,lol.

Aww DH would probably rather sleep on the couch as well. He says I move a lot in the night

Have/Do you use one? I have the Original Snoogle
Pros/Cons: I love to snuggle with it either way I turn over while I'm sleeping. It just takes up alot of space on the bed
Does DH/SO mind it? DH doesn't mind cuz he snuggles up with it too

I looked up that Snoogle thing. There's no way I could sleep in that. I would feel claustrophobic.

In my sleep, I would think I was being attacked by an octopus or something and beat the crap out of it.

Have/Do you use one? I use my old snoogle from when I was pg with my son.
Pros/Cons:
Cons: bulky and somehow the filling got separated in the middle so it's like two pillows now.
Pros: With some maneuvering, I can figure out the best fit. It's versatile.
Does DH/SO mind it? He thinks it's funny

Have/Do you use one? I have the boppy wedge:
Boppy Pregnancy Wedge - Mosiac - The Boppy Company - Babies "R" Us

We tried looking for a body pillow with my first pregnancy but it must have been the wrong time of year or something because we couldn't find one at any of the stores we tried.

Pros: It's cheap, it doesn't take up much room. It makes it easier to sleep on my side when the belly is smaller. It's best if you carry all in front as it keeps it from feeling like your belly is sliding to the side.

Cons: It isn't very useful once I get big. It probably wouldn't be useful if you carry wide rather than all in front.

Does DH/SO mind it? It's so small it doesn't make much difference to him.

I just use a regular pillow between my knees to ease back pain and twitchy legs. I tried a body pillow with my first it drove me bonkers.

Have/Do you use one? I have the Snoogle too
Pros/Cons: I wish I could use my regular pillow for my head
Does DH/SO mind it? He says it is better than the 10 pillows I slept with with DS.
