Need help! I currently 19+4 and have a pretty big bump already. Sleep has basically become non existent last couple of weeks. I wake up in the middle of the night with tailbone pain and hips pain. I have read that pregnancy pillows can help a lot but also know most of those are for shorter women than me(I am 5'9). Could anyone please suggest a pregnancy pillow that can help me regain some of my sanity aka sleep?!
I’ve got the dreamgenii. It’s good for belly but I’ve felt that my left hip- ligaments were achy the morning after so last night I slept on my right and felt much better this morning. I might swap once in a while to the right to rest my left side.
I have been using my own pillow between knees but been considering buying a large pregnancy pillow, so just to try out before spending a lot more money I bought one at weekend (L shaped) from ikea, 7 quid and 3 quid for case and I’ve slept amazing since.
Bb hugme from Scandiborn has helped me sleep with SPD. It is a long sausage shape filled with beads and adjusts at either end, you can also make it doughnut shaped to lie on your front. Designed by midwives and chiropractors. It's expensive but so worth it. I've used since week 12 and it adapts into a feeding pillow too.
Thank you for all the helpful recommendations ladies! I am looking into each one of them and will get one by the end of the week most probably. The hips and tailbone pain are a real nightmare. Plus lower back pain is slowly creeping into that routine. Grim.
I didn't get on with pregnancy pillows either, mainly because i toss and turn so much they're a faff to move in the night.
Best comfy position for me was using one of those V shaped pillows to lay my head on (V in upside down position) and then an ordinary pillow laid along side me that I could prop my leg up on. Sounds weird but worked for me!
