Calling all Baby Bellies!

I was looking at all things Pinteresting the other day and was reminded of a super awesome pregnancy must-have that I have yet to blog about.

If you're pregnant, you have to stop what you're doing and order one of these right now may need one of these. I went through two pregnancies battling sore, achy hips and a stomach that felt like I was carrying a watermelon with my back every night as I slept...until I bought a wedge pillow. I tried to squirm around in every way imaginable - from putting giant pillows under my belly to trying to sleep with my elbows and fists under my belly as support and, at one point, nearly buying a new mattress. I knew I didn't want a body pillow. There's already not enough room in bed AND during pregnancy I think it's way too hot to have a big body pillow like that near me while I (try to) sleep. I finally wised up and Googled "belly pillow." Thankfully, Google gave me what I wanted.

The belly pillow works because it lifts your belly ever so slightly to relieve pressure from your back and hips. Don't believe me? Doesn't seem comfortable? You know those Amazon reviewers don't lie! It gets almost five stars from 70 customer reviews. I think it's safe to assume that this thing is the real deal. If you're missing your Zzzzzzzs because of the aches and pains of pregnancy, check it out!

Again, my only regret is not buying one two babies before.

  1. I never had one of these! which is totally DUMB, I so should've!

  2. Hello fellow pregnant blogger!

    I recently found out that I am pregnant with baby #7 and the Lord has laid it on my heart to start a weekly pregnancy link up for other pregnant mommy bloggers. This link up will be a place where you can share your updates, pictures, joys, difficulties, scriptures, prayer requests; it will be a safe place for fellowship, encouragement, and support for pregnant bloggers.

    The first link-up will be this Sunday, April 29. You can find more info on my blog under the My Pregnancy Journal Tab.

    I hope you will join me in this amazing journey!!

    If you have any questions, comments or concerns, please let me know!
