I am in the midst of my first pregnancy, and while I expected morning sickness and crazy hormones, no one told me how hard it was to get a normal night’s sleep.
Even early on I found I was always achy and never felt comfortable. Tack on getting up 3 times to go to the bathroom and you had a very grumpy me come morning time.
I am primarily a back sleeper, and since I have been told I can’t do that anymore once I am in my third trimester I figured I might as well try and get used to it now.
I couldn’t even make it through one night sleeping on my side.
I would just wake up with hip and back pain and turn onto my back. When I was browsing the internet I came across the Bump Nest body pillow and knew I had to have it.
I will admit I was first drawn to it just because of how freaking cute the fabric was. It comes in chevron and an adorable peacock feather pattern that I had to have.
When it came in the mail I tried it out right away and was immediately in heaven. I was able to sleep on my side all night without being in pain. WOOHOO!
The pillow is the perfect balance of firmness and softness. Hugging the pillow distributed my body weight evenly so I didn’t have all the pressure on my back and hips. It’s also so much easier not to turn onto my back all the time since I had the pillow pushed up against me.
The Bump Nest body pillow is extremely high quality. I have been using it for about a month now and it has held its shape very well. When it gets dirty all you have to do is unzip the cover and toss it in the wash. Easy!
I am sure I will continue to use this pillow throughout my pregnancy and beyond. Sometimes I even have to pry my husband or my cat off of it before I go to sleep.
This is a must-have to get through those sleepness pregnancy nights!
