Have you or will you purchase a pregnancy pillow? What kind? Have you used them with a previous pregnancy, give us your review!



With DS1 I had a pregnancy wedge pillow.. it was okay.. not the best thing in the world. With DS2 I slept with an extra regular pillow; it worked okay. This time I ordered the Sealy Pregnancy Pillow.. I'm still waiting on it to come in the mail! I'm hoping I love it!

I used a snoogle with my first pregnancy. I liked it. I hated it for my 2nd pregnancy....not sure why...but I never used it. I got rid of it after that because part of me thought we were done. I guess it depends on the pregnancy. So far with this one I'm not having ANY trouble sleeping. exhausted!

I used a regular pillow for a while, but I gave it back to hubby. I find I sleep better this pregnancy without another pillow.

With my first two I used a huge pregnancy pillow. Not sure what the name was, but it was one that started as a head pillow and wrapped all the way around your back, through your legs, and back up the front. (or at least that is how I used it) I LOVED it with both previous pregnancies, but it was getting really worn out and we weren't planning on getting pregnant anytime soon so I threw it away. That was a huge mistake as surprise here is baby #3 and I am missing my pillow soooooo much. I have been trying to use another regular pillow, but it is NOT the same. So I am going to try to find another pillow similar to the one I had because I really need a good nights sleep!

Same here - I used a regular body pillow (the long straight kind) and it worked fine.

I use a simple body pillow also. I used it up until the last month then I used an extra pillow between my knees for support with my last pregnancy. I love my body pillow, I use it when I'm not pregnant too.

I have a Boppy Pregnancy Comfort Cuddle Pillow, it tucked between my knee and went under my belly or I would rest my arm on it and tuck it under my belly - it's gotten a little flat from ware, so I am looking at getting another, perhaps a Snoogle this time But, I did like it!

I used a body pillow with DD and I'm using the same one this time around too, though it's a bit worn out now. It's been on my bed the entire time.
So I use the body pillow between my legs and up to my belly, then a small micro plush blanket under my belly for extra support. Time to google a Snoogle!

I really liked the wedge pillow, although I mostly used it between my legs. I also bought a regular body pillow, which I LOVED, but DH hated. He is a big guy and we have a queen size bed, so it was a little tight. I gave it up and used it when he went on travel.
