Anyone have any great suggestions for a pregnancy pillow? Right now I sleep with 3-4 standard pillows, 1 under my head, 1 that I hug, 1 between my knees, and 1 behind me. Getting everything organized and then re-organized (after a million position changes or bathroom visits) is such a pain! I see several online called Snoogle Loop pillows and Leachco Back & Belly pillows and wondered if anyone had one they just love! Please let us know!

I just got this. I was skeptical at first about how HUGE it is, but I LOOOOVE it. I put the "U" part at my feet and then I have these long pillows on either side of me and I can just roll over and not have to take a pillow with me. I'm finally sleeping so much better!

i just have a regular straight body pillow i use. i can pretty easily wrap my legs around it and also push it a little under my belly. my husband calls it "my boyfriend" since these positions can get a little intimate looking!

I'm wondering about this, too. I'm only 17 weeks, but I already like to sleep with three pillows (head, between knees, and one kind of next to me). If I add another, there's not going to be any room for my poor husband.

That's something I wonder about when it comes to these pregnancy pillows, though: is there really enough room in the bed for the pillow AND your partner? Or do you have to tell him to go camp out on the couch?

With DH, my body pillow (I just bought a $12 one at Costco, and so far it's wonderful when I can't get comfy otherwise), my cat and myself in bed, we all just barely fit somehow. It's only a queen-sized bed, so it's a bit cozy!

I got this a couple of weeks ago and it changed my life. I was having some serious trouble sleeping. http://www.amazon.com/Full-Length-Se...7787757&sr=1-1

You can unzip it and it comes apart in three pieces so it has many uses. I just wanted something with two sides because trying to drag the regular pillow I used to sleep with between my knees with me when I flipped over onto my other side was too annoying.

I was worried it was going to be too big for my husband to fit in the bed, since we only have a double bed. But the first morning I woke up to find him curled around one side of it (I was hugging the other). We can even share a side because he sleeps lower down than I do. So he likes it too... mostly, he likes me well rested because I am less cranky that way...
