Pregnancy pillow?

The affectionately named "honeymoon trimester". Your belly is getting bigger and you start to feel your first baby kicks. Are you having a boy or a girl?

Hi...I'm new to this side...17 weeks today. I'm curvy, too and found that the plus sized pants at Motherhood maternity fit beautifully. I've been wearing them for about a week now. I was also able to find plus sized maternity clothes online at JCPenney and Kohl's. HTH!

I hope you dont mind me asking but what size pants were you prior?? I was a 12/14 at Old Navy. I will deff have to check out the plus size. My butt and thighs are too big for the regular pants.

I'm usually a 16/18 depending on the pants. I find the 1x to be super comfortable. The XL fit but were a tad snug in the thigh area; I went one size up to be safe.

I did not even think about that. The XL in jeans is tight but the work pants im floating in the XL. Ill have to figure something out.

I bought one of the boppy pillows that's full body. And it's very comfortable but very expensive for a pillow. However I find that using that and putting a few pillows behind me allows me to have support in the front but also keeps me from tossing around too much in my sleep. :) I'd definitely give one a shot.

Ok had to up date with my review of my pillow. LOVE IT!!!! I can't sleep without the damn thing. Went on a trip and DH said it was too big to bring. Lets just say I didnt get much sleep if any. I was in so much pain. DH complains that he doesnt know if hes hugging me or my pillow...hehehe. For me its a MUST HAVE!

I've been sleeping with a pillow between my knees and another one under my belly. I've been comfortable so far but I think I will get to a point that that might not help. I'll have to look into that Snoogle mini. $35 isn't too bad.

I am getting to the point where I want some more support. I guess I will be looking around but I think a regular body pillow will be fine for now.

I caved and ordered a snoogle from Amazon last night as this week has been awful. Shoving pillows under me just isn't working anymore. Can't wait to get it in!
