By Christmas of 2011, I was 5 months pregnant. And by pregnant I mean, I had a very round belly. I was proud of my belly. It made me happy. Until it was time to go to sleep. My brain kept me up more than anything during my pregnancy. Although, there were many nights when I couldn’t get comfortable. I did some research and I put the Snoogle on my Christmas wishlist. My sister-in-law and her husband bought and wrapped my gift and I think it was the biggest one of the year. Of course I knew what it was (we don’t really do surprise gifts anymore–a topic for another day) but I was still excited.
If you are pregnant, get your Snoogle NOW! Wait. I don’t think it really matters. Get a Snoogle even if you aren’t pregnant.
I loved the pillow because it supported my back while I slept on my side. I had to say good-bye to the nights of belly sleeping. No one told me how bad my hips were going to hurt in the early (and again in the later) stages of pregnancy. About a month into the first trimester, the uncomfortable feeling associated with my ligaments stretching, would prevent me from falling asleep. If I woke up during the night, I would feel the aching in my hips. I know if I had a Snoogle then, it would have made a big difference.
There are many Snoogle Sleep Positions. I alternated between the “Tummy Tuck” and the “Back to Back” ones. I have heard that sleeping with a pillow between your knees helps to alleviate pressure and pain in your lower back and the Snoogle did that for me.
I think the Snoogle is a necessity and you shouldn’t wait for the Holidays. Go and splurge on yourself and snuggle up to your Snoogle, tonight!
