Hey everyone! Forgive me for my absence. I've been busy with a lot and trying to take things slowly. I should be excited but still worried.

I'm starting to feel incredibly uncomfortable at night when I sleep. I've been using the pregnancy pillow but it's kind of flattened out and lost its fluff. I'm pondering if buying a new one will help. I wish there was some other tricks to help me be comfortable.

Anyone else feeling uncomfortable? What did you do to fix it?

Yes I'm super uncomfortable at night too. I should invest in a better pillow because mine isn't doing justice anymore.

I was the same way but once I got my pregnancy pillow it was so much better..maybe some thick body pillows will help?

I'm rolling myself up in extra blankets, which is helping. So curling them into me like I would a pillow, without actually having to get a big body pillow.

I am sometimes moving to the couch and listening to a hypnobabies relaxation CD I got from the library. I like that the couch has a back, so I can lean into it without really sleeping on my back. Plus I don't want to bother DH with the CD, which does a good job of knocking me out.

I've got a body pillow on one side and a pregnancy pillow on the other (poor DH has almost no space... ). They help, but some nights I still have trouble sleeping!

I've just been using dh as a body pillow.

One thing that has really been bothering me lately is sore, restless legs. They are definitely keeping me up at night.

Yep! I wake up several times a night and it takes forever to get comfortable. I use an extra pillow between my knees and under my belly and I use DH for back support lol, poor guy I probably sleeping as poorly as I am.

Rough sleeping here, too! I am getting new pillows soon - my body pillow is flattened like your prego pillow. Hopefully that will help!

yep, uncomfortable. My pregnancy pillow from DD has seen it's day. I currently am using a right sized stuffed animal to put behind my back to keep me from rolling on my back. I need a new body pillow though!
