If you have ever been pregnant, you know that months 6-9 are the toughest, physically speaking. This is when your protruding belly causes you to start literally waddling, you are unfortunately on the recieving end of progressively harder kicks to your bladder and ribs, and the sleeping!
Let’s talk about the sleeping, or more specifically, the lack thereof. Not only do you have to get up and go to the bathroom approximately four times a night, your growing belly prohibits you from sleeping comfortably. Back pain and hip pain are all too common.
So in its wisdom, the pregnancy industrial complex has devised all manner of pillows that purport to deliver you into the land of slumber, stat.
In my bleary-eyed misery, I was perusing some websites for a suitable pregnancy pillow that would alleviate my problems. I have experience with the wedge pillows, and also with the longer pillows which fit under both your belly and between your knees.
But things have changed since my last pregnancy, and I was confronted with this:
Whoa! I’m guessing this is for women who are secretly annoyed at their husbands, because there is no way your hubby is going to fit with that huge thing in the bed. Screw spooning!
Maybe I should just get myself one of these. It’s fairly similar, probably cheaper, and I can at least use it later!
