I am nearly 39 weeks pregnant and let me just tell you that I would not have survived this far without this pillow. I bought it back around 16 weeks and it has become more invaluable as the months have gone by. At this point, I have so much discomfort sitting upright (rib and back pain) that the only way I can get comfy is to curl into this pillow on my side. I’m 5’2” and the pillow wraps the entire way around my body, giving me something to snuggle with on the front as well as some support on the back. It did flatten a bit more than I thought so I usually tuck another pillow between my knees for extra support.
I’ve washed the removable cover many times with no issues. It’s got a jersey like feel to it so it did pill a little but it doesn’t bother me.
My husband hates this pillow because it creates what I call a fortress of solitude around me. He can’t get close to me no matter what he tries. Which frankly I find perfect for uncomfortable pregnant nights :)
This pregnancy pillow has honestly helped me to sleep so much better. It supports my stomach and my aching back. I can fold and move this pillow around so many different ways to fit me and help me sleep comfortably. This has been the best $40.00 I have ever spent. I will even use this after pregnancy. The pillow is also cooling so when you are in a deep sleep you dont wake up hot and sweaty. I am in love with this pillow. My boyfriend even loves it. He is jealous thati did not buy him one.
Now that I am no longer pregnant my boyfriend sleeps with this pillow every single night. But seriously if you are looking for a comfortable pregnancy pillow, consider buying this one. You will not be disappointed.
Bought this for my pregnant wife. She absolutely loves this thing. Our dog even loves sleeping in it all curled up.
She prefers sleeping on her back as opposed to on her side. But since she's pregnant, she's not supposed to be sleeping on her side. This pillow discourages her from rolling onto her back when she's sleeping, and it doesn't disrupt her sleep at all. She loves that it's malleable and it contours to however she sleeps.
When she gets up for work, I roll over and nuzzle myself into this pillow and fall asleep instantly for another hour or two. I prefer pillows that are a little more firm, and this is on the softer side. But keep in mind, this is for my wife, not me. So it doesn't matter whether I like it or not (but I do quite like it). Happy wife, happy life.
I have loved this pillow so so much during pregnancy! I actually used it facing the opposite way than is pictured but it helped so much with all of the lovely body aches/pains that seem to accompany this beautiful journey of making a person. It provided so much support for my back and hips. I couldn’t go without this thing, so much so that when we went on a two week vacation at 33 weeks I checked a suitcase JUST for this pillow.
P.S. I am now in the last weeks of pregnancy and am having trouble sleeping on my side (varicose veins and trouble breathing from the baby being just so dang big) but I am still using this pillow folded in half (like a tiny “C”) with another pillow in the curve of it to prop me up and am still able to sleep!
I was hesitant to buy a $40 pillow, but I'm so glad I did!
I'm 21 weeks pregnant and trying to sleep with the back and hip pain isn't easy and having to adjust multiple pillows all night is annoying. I slept with this for one night so far and I only woke up twice (compared to my usual six) and I didn't have any pain! If anything changes, I'll definitely update.
As for packaging, the UPS worker had to physically keep the packaged closed as she was handing it to me. It wasn't taped properly at all and the box was really beat up looking.
The pillow does not take up much space in our queen size bed. My significant other has no complaints at all about it. The case is very soft and the filling doesn't make the pillow too stiff which I like.
Overall a great buy!
