am starting to get v.uncomfortable at night now, am surrounding myself with pillows! are those long pillows much cop? I 've seen one in argos thats £25 that is just a long pillow, but have seen others that are more round and squisy, and also some that go under your bump! Can anyone recommend me a good one? Reasonable prices please!

got a big curved one from argos, think it was a bit less than £25. It was fine, I used that and a selection of ordinary pillows to get comfy.

Not the John Lewis Big V one - it's full of polystyrene beads like a beadbag so is hard not squishy, and is a lot shorter than it says on the website.

Now need to persuade them to take it back. Was expensive, too.

i got mine off ebay from a seller called blossom moon (just searched maternity pillows) its just a 5ft long pillow - brilliant - don't know what i'd do without it. It ame with a pillow case of my choice in colour and inc. postage was £19.50 - best buy yet!

I got the Dream Genii pillow. It wasn't cheap, but I've found it's really good for encouraging me to sleep on my left hand side - not my natural sleeping position. I recommended it to a pregnant colleague who also is also really pleased with it. Plus it can be used as a breast-feeding pillow afterwards.

I bought the Argos long one at £25. I like it as when I go to bed I can rest my bump on it and put the rest straight down in between my legs. I was getting hip pain through the night and this definately helped. Only drawback was it takes up a bit of room in the bed. I double it up and use it for sitting up against as well.
