Its no secret that getting a good night’s sleep can be really tricky when you’re pregnant, starting as early as the first trimester with vivid dreams and frequent toilet trips throughout the night! By the time I got to 16 weeks I was already suffering with pelvic pain making sleeping on my side really uncomfortable and often meaning that when I had to get up in the middle of the night I found myself hardly able to walk.
As my bump grew I was finding it increasingly difficult to get comfortable in bed so I started to research pregnancy pillows. When the opportunity arose to try out one of Snuggle Up’s pillows I jumped at the chance and enjoyed browsing their website to find the perfect pillow for me.
I chose the premium U-shaped pillow as it looked like it would provide the most support as it wraps around your whole body. When it arrived I couldn’t wait to try it and I was not disappointed. It was so comfortable that I was tempted to stay in bed and have a nap right there and then.
The pillow supports your bump really well and bends around to sit between your legs, which is recommended for hip and pelvic pain. Cuddling up to the pillow stops you from rolling onto your front without having to support all of your weight on your side. There is also amazing back support which really holds you in place and also prevents you from rolling on your back. I feel so comfortable and supported snuggling up to the pillow and have been sleeping really well. We just got back from a week in the Lakes and I couldn’t bear the thought of sleeping without it so it came along with us.
The pillow is also ideal for propping yourself up in bed which keeps me comfortable when reading and will also come in handy when baby is here. Tom tried out the pillow and was so comfortable I though I wouldn’t get it back. My mum also said she’d like one for her to support her bad back and one for my dad for his arthritic hips!
All pillows come with a removable and washable cover, which is perfect when you go to bed each night smothered in bump oil. The premium pillows contain fairy beads which conform to the shape of your body for ultimate comfort.
I would highly recommend snuggle up pregnancy pillows to help you to get a great night sleep again!
