My new friend!

I bought one of these today...I'm hoping it helps with my hip pain! I almost can't wait to go to sleep to try it!

It took me a minute to see the pad between her legs and I hadn't read what you'd written yet so I was thinking this chick was your new friend & was like "Cooooool Heather...." :thumbsup: LOL!!

Anyway, GL hope it helps!

LOL, she looks like a nice enough lady. I hope y'all have a great friendship. Wink

I do hope you like it. I'm not sleeping uncomfortably yet but I was later on with DS2. I would like to try something different this time besides just extra pillows. Any other BTDT moms have anything you used and really liked?

I have a pregnancy wedge from when I was pregnant with DD but it's for under my tummy. I really liked it, but I don't need it yet. It's this one.

I was thinking about asking for a preggie pillow for Christmas, but didn't know if I would like it. I would be interested in hearing others thoughts on it too.

Ya, I roll a lot too. That's why I wanted one that was trim and rounded at the ends. It stayed in pretty well despite my rolling. Hopefully it helps my hip. I guess time will tell.

I hope it works for you! I couldn't do anything like that... I always end up sleeping flat on my back, even at the very end of my pregnancies. Of course that puts baby putting pressure on my "blood supply" so I wake up frequently, but my body just always ends up of my back to matter how many times I turn onto my side.

eeeek back sleeper! I'm glad I'm a side sleeper but I toss from side to side...which is a problem when my belly gets bigger. Rolling becomes quite the undertaking. Blum 3

That should help alot! I have the Boppy comfort pillow and it helps me sleep better and easier on my hips too. I don't put it under my belly yet.

Well, my hip is aching today again. I think I'll call the midwife.

Woo hooo! I called the company who does our extended health plan and I can get Chiro and Massage Therapy without a referral, covered 100% for up to $500 a year! Now I need to find a maternity massage therapist! I already have a chiropractor so I'll call him today and get in. Goodbye hip pain!

Ya, super lucky! I thought I'd need a referral and all that. I might have to keep going to Massage Therapy after I have baby. Blum 3
