Is anyone here going to be getting one of these? Or ever used one before with a previous pregnancy?

I have never used one but my back pain is horrible at night when I try to sleep, and I am hoping the pillow will help! I no longer sleep on our firm mattress, DH brought me an air mattress and sleeping on that is terrible as well. I usually only sleep on Air mattresses during pregnancy and its like heaven!

So tonight he is going to bring home a mattress topper to put on top of the mattress and I pray that works or the pillow is the next step. I have not been gotten a good nights sleep in weeks..except at the beach, the bed there was like sleeping on a giant super soft down pillow .

I wanted one so badly when I was pregnant with DS, but never ended up finding one I could afford. I definitely want one this time. There is one I think is called a Snoogle or something like that that you can wrap under your head, down your back, between your knees and back up in front of you. It looks heavenly.

I definitely plan to get one! For me, having a pillow by me also acts as a buffer for my dogs who need to deal with their boundary issues at night ;-)

I have one of those long body pillows from my first pregnancy. I haven't had to use it yet, but I'm sure I eventually will. It helps, but it definitely is a pain!

I just use a regular body pillow and it works! You can usually find them at Walmart relatively cheap...about $10 last time I saw some. I definitely use the body pillow and a couple of other regular pillows to get and stay in a comfortable position late in pregnancy!

I had a Snoogle with my last pregnancy, and LOVED it. I got rid of it a few months after Nathaniel was born because I thought we were done. I will absolutely be getting another one this time. We have a store here called Essex which is basically an overstock store. I got my last one there for $19.99. I am already wishing I had it back so I will have to check out the store soon.

The Snoogle is way better than a normal body pillow. I used one of those during my first pregnancy.

I had one last time as well and will be getting another one this time. I already sleep and lean against a pillow on my side as it is so will be looking forward to getting one. DH might not have anymore room anymore lol but as long as I get sleep he will realize its worth it.

I want a body pillow like nobody's business. I haven't found just the right one yet. The ones I've seen are too soft. I want a nice firm one!

We have a memory foam topper on our bed and its heaven! Perfect for me, the side sleeper, and firm enough for my DH who has a bad back.

I'm ordering this sucker SOON. Pregnancy Body Pillow - Bump Nest

I'm so uncomfortable at night. I'm trying to train myself to sleep on my left side, but I'm always finding myself on my back. The doctor told me that's a big no,no once I hit the second trimester. I think hugging this bad boy will help me stay in position and comfortable! I can't wait!

I always sleep with a big pillow between my knees or I get hip pain. I borrowed one of those giant crazy maternity pillows from a friend during one pregnancy and it creeped me out and made things more uncomfortable. To each their own!

DEFINITELY. I told my DH this would be an investment VERY soon, along with a king size bed!
