pg pillow?

This might be a repeat, but I'm just wondering if anyone else is trying one of these pillows out and how it's going? I just bought one off of craigslist for 20 bucks!!!! It's a snoogle? I think is what it's called....I'm so excited to try it out and am praying for some better sleep tonight! Smile

I don't have one, but I'm using 6 pillows all around me including one body pillow for between my legs and a down pillow to stuff between my belly and the bed. The pillows for my head, well I can spend half the night trying to get them in the right position. I really hope the snoogle works for you - a good price to get it for too I think.

i dont sleep with it too much, however, it is so comfortable to just snuggle with and its multifunctional. good flor sleeping, snuggling, back support while watching tv, nursing etc. i particularly like it to snuggle up on the couch with.

I bought a snoogle with my first pregnancy and didn't really like it. I gave it to a friend and she loved it. I used lots of pillows last time, but haven't really needed any this time. I just use a little fom pillow to help support my belly.

I have the snoogle, i mainly only use the bottom, and side for support and between the legs. I wish I would have got the smaller hook shaped pillow, that is for between legs and either supports back or tummy. I hate the top half of the snoogle, but mainly because i have to have a feather pillow for my head.

I got one as a gift when I was pg with DS, I didn't like it. Don't know why, but I slept in a recliner the last 3 months of my first pregnancy. Now I LOVE it... its so big and funky looking my husband has decided it looks like a big organ (as in a part of the stomach). It helps my back my stomach and its size grantees some more space for me! Smile

HEre is a link to mine... LOVE IT. :love10:

I got one off of Ebay. It's a snoogle,m I love it. A friend gave me hers to use but its way bigger and bulkier than the snoogle and I don't like it. I was using it where the entire pillow wrapped to the front of me and noe I put it at my back and wrap one end between my knees. Very comfortable for me.

The time when I am uncomfortable is when I am moving into the sitting up position. I feel like I have no stomach muscles that are left for that job. Smile

I have one that is a U shape and I have to have it to sleep. With DD I just used pillows but I was always sore. I started out this pregnancy trying to use pillows but they kept moving out of place through the night and I can't move well enough to readjust them. So this pregnancy I broke down and bought one that can't move. The part between my legs stays there (which is a must), one leg of the U supports my back so I don't roll over onto my back and the other leg of the U supports my belly leg and arm. Plus to prevent hip pain I flip from one side to the other side every bathroom break and I don't have to move the huge pillow to flip.

I admit - DH isn't a fan of the pillow but it is way better than sleeping in a recliner.

I do really like it, but it's taking me a bit to get use to not using my reg pillow for my head but I do like it. I seem to have more energy during the day.
