I had a Dream Genii pillow which I loved. Used it in all sorts of positions and really helped me sleep on my side. I had a bad hip so also helped to take the weight off it with the long bit in between my legs.

Also helpful for bf once baby arrived.

Congratulations and good luck!

I had this one, it was great and gave all round support which you don't get with the smaller pillows.

I had an amazing one last time but got rid of it like a dumbass. I can't remember the name but it was on amazon and it horseshoe shaped and was almost the same length as me on either side. It was amazing but a total passion killer.

I also used a V shaped one when i slept at my mum's... the type you see old ladies using. One side between the legs and one end under bump. That was also pretty good.

Btw i really need to get one. 11 weeks and still sleeping flat on my front.

I had what frankelandfilly linked to. So comfy!

My physio recommended a basic L-shaped one from Dunelm, one bit under bump, one between knees. Was marvellous and pretty useful while breastfeeding too. Can't remember how much but seem to think around �20 with 2 covers.

I used a super king bolster, it was great because I could manipulate it into different positions. Also towards the end when rolling over was such a hassle it was good to have one that wasn't quite so entangling!

I bought a cheap one from ikea for about £6. Does the job perfectly well

I would say it depends on your height. I'm 6 ft so it was the theraline for me. Average height and dinky ladies get much more choice!

theraline if you want it for more than one pregnancy imo- I bought the Dream geniii last time and it is knackered, stuffing all squished and not enough support even early on. Look on Amazon, the less appealing coloured ones- mine is a horrible mustard yellow- can be had for fewer ££

Argos do a mum to be pillow set, £12.99. I bought yesterday and had my best nights sleep last night! It's a v shaped pillow and a wedge but for under your bump. Amazing!

I also got the 2 pack from argos it will be delivered on Thursday.

This is small but I couldnt live without it wedge pillow - for me I dont like too much around me so it supports without being too bulky.

I use the Leacho Snoogle Total Body Pillow and think it's amazing!

My friend gave me hers last week and I realised what I'd been missing out. It's so much better than trying to use the regular pillows.
