    I used a regular body pillow I picked up from Wal-Mart. I liked some of the fancier ones but they were too large and took up so much room in our bed. The cheapo one worked like a charm 🙂

    I tried the nest of regular pillows but it didn’t work. Way too hard to maneuver around but I loved the Snoogle! There may be some cheaper alternatives but it fit me perfectly because it was a little less thick than a standard body pillow.

    I just used a regular king size pillow when I was pregnant with my kids. I didn’t see the need for an added expense of a specialty pillow.

    Love my snoogle! Not preggo anymore and I still use it. It helps me sleep so much better!

    I used a feather pillow that was nice and smooshie, it worked pretty well.

    I tried a Snoogle {borrowed from a friend, wow I can’t believe how expensive it is!!!} and it did not work for me. I like to stretch out my legs so it got in my way and I preferred my own pillow under my head. So at 6 months I’m still just using a standard pillow for my legs/belly, although I may soon ‘upgrade’ to an inexpensive body pillow.

    I don’t need a pregnancy pillow yet, but I read somewhere that a pillow 5 feet or longer is recommended during pregnancy. I plan to just use a body pillow we already had instead of purchasing a new one but we will see.

    None of them.  Hated them all (and I did try at least four brands!).  I ended up elevating my legs and it cured all my discomfort!
