Maternity pillow

Hi everyone,

I'm 19 weeks and starting to get some lower back pain.

My sister has lent me her pregnancy pillow which looks like the attached pic but I'm not finding it very supportive.

What have you ladies tried?

I had the L shaped one. I would have killed for one of those you've got though!!

I found that I needed the L shaped one and various other pillows stuffed in around me to support back / legs / knees at varying started out pregnancy.

I have to say, I don't think it started as early as 19 weeks in either pregnancy for me. It might be worth making sure you've got all the help at work with regards to foot stools, back supports, good quality chairs etc. (If that applies). Also pregnancy yoga I found to be really good. Could you see if there is one in your area?
