My husband and I just found out we are expecting #2 and couldn't be more thrilled!
Coincidentally, we are desperately in need of a new mattress and will be looking this weekend I think. Does anyone have any thoughts on which type(s) of mattress is best for pregnancy? Sleep number? Temperpedic? Other??

But those are pretty expensive. In lieu of that, I'd go with a decent pillowtop PLUS a memory foam topper - we just got some at Costco recently for some other beds.
We love our latex savvyrest king mattress. It was expensive, but worth it to avoid all the fire retardants and other toxic stuff in regular mattresses, plus we don't have to buy a crib!
That's what we have also and we LOVE it! It's a big investment but very worth it! Definitely don't buy a tempur-pedic. Do some research and you'll see how bad they are. Nursing mothers are not supposed to sleep on them because the toxic chemicals can get into their milk. Scary stuff. Sorry I don't have the resources to quote, I just did some research for my sister who was thinking of buying one.
OOh, do you really love it? We will be in the area this weekend and plan to test the mattress out in person. I've been wanting a Savvyrest for a couple years now. What model did you get? I'm not sure we can quite justify the expense right now, but this is probably the mattress we will buy when we DO replace our bed.
There is an amazing product called Mom's Nest check it out at mypregnancymattress.com. Not only is it affordable but also patented. Whether your a side sleeper or sleep on your belly this mattress overlay is affordable and will ensure a good night's rest.
