    A pregnancy support pillow?

    I am finding it really uncomfortable to sleep at night. My arms keep going dead because of my weight on them and I'm sure from the weight of my ever increasing boobs!
    I just cannot get comfortable and I always seem to put one hand on my tummy cos I don't want to squash him/her.

    Do you reckon they work or am I not pregnant enough to get the benefit from one yet?

    hi hun

    I havent got a proper pregnancy suport pillow but I do use a V pillow along with about 6 strategically placed normal pillows lol. I have always had to sleep with pillows everywhere - not sure why I supose I just like being snuggled and I cant stand the bony bits of my knees touching! Id definately get one - it cant hurt and as you get bigger you'll benefit more :D

    I've got one of the huge ones like in that link, but I don't use it, a long one from Argos which I don't use either as I find it a bit itchy and then a bump wedge which I do use and love :D

    I'd go for the wedge pillow. They are only around £8 so a bargain.

    i have got one of the v shaped ones from mothercare, which i tried using between my knees and under my bump, and couldn't get on with it - but i am now using it as a pillow and it is fantastic i ma sleeping better than i have in years!

    I have also got a wedge, which i have just starting using (although i find it a bit hard, it seems to put pressure on my bump)

    I got one of those body pillows, which was comfy but I found it a pain in the @rse as you have to take it with you if you turn over. If you toss and turn 100 times a night like I do then it becomes a real effort.

    I lost my temper with it eventually one night, and grabbed a normal pillow out of the spare room which does the job.
