Are they really that amazing? did you use it after pregnancy? I’m about 27 weeks and getting comfortable at night is starting to get really hard. I’d love to know your experience with them before I spend $50 on a pillow that will take up half the bed and will only be needed for 3 more months.

I think a pillow definitely helps, but I had great luck with a standard body pillow, which you can buy for $10-20 at Target or Walmart. I also had some hip trouble after childbirth, so I continued to use the pillow for quite a while (more than a year!) after.

I have a snoogle and really like it so far. I’m not nearly as far along as you, but it helps me to stay on my side which was a struggle because I’ve always been a back sleeper. My only worry is getting tangled up in it and being able to navigate it (especially for those late night pee breaks) when my belly starts to get bigger. It is pretty large and we have a lot of blankets on the bed right now. But I have been able to sleep so much better with it.

I picked up my plain old body pillow at target with a cover on clearance for $12. It is perfect and my best cuddle friend. I can’t sleep without it and I’m only 18 weeks.

Nothing has really helped me. 🙁 I bought a pillow and it doesn’t help. I hope you have better luck!

I would try a body pillow first, it is a life saver for me.

I was just wondering/ started thinking about this. I would love a super delux pregnancy pillow, but will probably look for a cheap body pillow at Target or Walmart…

I think it all really depends on the person. I borrowed one from a friend, who loved it (large, C shaped one), but I didn’t really like it that much. I was glad I didn’t fork out the $ to buy one. I ended up just using a regular pillow between my knees.

I have a body pillow, which works okay for part of the night. I’d love to try a Snoogle for back support since I roll onto my back a lot, but I have a feeling that I’d end up wrestling with it during the fifty million times I wake up to go pee in the middle of the night.

I just have a regular king sized pillow. I wasn’t willing to invest in a special pillow.

I tend to be a back sleeper so I bought a Preggle to help make side sleeping more bearable. It took about a week to get used to it but I think it was worth the money. I like the Preggle because it’s a bit smaller than the ones that go all the way around your body, and I like being able to use my own pillow for my head.

Thanks all! I will check out the preggle and will stop by Target after to work to get a cheap body pillow. Here’s to restful nights.

I got a Leachco Snoogle Maternity Total Body Pillow when I was in my end of 1st trimester. I love this thing because I don’t have to re-adjust leg support with this one. I was happy to find that even my husband loves using it when I am not.

I got the snoogle mini and love it! It’s not as big and cumbersome or expensive as the regular maternity pillows. The only downside is that it’s really hard to rollover with it. But, other than that, I LOVE mine.
