Hi! Lurking from 1st trimester, hope you don't mind.
Does anyone have a body pillow they recommend for pregnancy? With DS I just used my regular body pillow, but its not that great. I've seen the boppy one and didnt know if it was any good?
doremi29:I have a snoogle but don't love it. I think I move too much at night because it's so hard for me to reposition myself with the snoogle and so I have to fully wake to move. I just use a body pillow
I have the Snoozer. I felt that the Snoogle was too big. The Snoozer is candy cane shaped. I like it.
I have the Snoogle and the Boppy wedge. I was okay with the Snoogle when my belly was smaller, but now that it's bigger I feel like the Snoogle does nothing. I sleep with the pillows in a different place every night because what's comfortable one night isn't comfortable the next night for me.
If I were to do it again, I might spend $10 on a body pillow somewhere first and then see how that works out. If you do decide to get a Snoogle, get it from Bed Bath & Beyond (it might be online only) and use a 20% off coupon.
I bought a regular, cheapo body pillow at the end of my 2nd tri / beginning of my 3rd tri because I kept ending up in weird positions as I slept, either partially or entirely on my back, which is not only a no-no, but really uncomfortable (wtf, body?!). I usually prop it up against my back, then still use two separate pillows between my legs and under my head. Basically, I'm surrounded. But as I get closer to my DD, all those pillows are making me miserably hot!
Hope that helps ;)
