After watching the movie, The Back-Up Plan with Jennifer Lopez, I had to have this pillow when I finally became pregnant. It looked so comfortable and natural to use. Since the tenth week of my pregnancy, I've had trouble sleeping. I usually sleep on my back and that's not possible anymore, due the shortness of breath I experience. Since it's recommended for you to sleep on your side, I felt this would help with that transition. The best sleep position during pregnancy is “SOS” (sleep on side). Even better is to sleep on your left side. Sleeping on your left side will increase the amount of blood and nutrients that reach the placenta and your baby.
The first night, the whole process felt foreign to me and I felt awkward forcing myself to sleep in this position. But with time, I got use to it and actually enjoyed it. What made me return this product was the scratchy and harsh material used. Every section on the pillow that touched my body, caused me to sweat very heavily. This heat and perspiration didn't help the SEVERE pregnancy acne I've been experiencing either. If the fabric was softer and lighter in texture, I would buy this product again in a heartbeat. I really think this product would be a better fit for women in their second or third trimesters of pregnancy because early on, you don't have enough belly (in my mind) for it to work as needed. Many times I felt smothered by all the fabric surrounding me.
