Top 3 Pregnancy pillows

Your bedroom is dark with the thermostat set at a perfectly cool 68 degrees, your bed linens are soft, and you’re wearing your coziest pair of oversized pajamas, but you just can’t get comfortable enough to sleep! Sound familiar? That adorably round bump can be a bit cumbersome when you’re ready to call it a day, and getting a restful night’s sleep can be a struggle.

Most experts advise moms-to-be to sleep on their side, and although experimenting with pillows to prop you up and support you where you need it (like under your abdomen or between your knees) is a good first step to getting comfortable, many expectant moms turn to pregnancy pillows to get the job done.

Feel like you’re in the market for one of these cozy sleeping aids? Well, start researching the options and you’ll quickly realize there are a million to choose from! If you’re not in the mood for an hour-long Google spiral spent comparing and contrasting all the pregnancy pillow options, simply look below for our roundup of the Top 3 pregnancy pillows we found out there.

Note: Before you read our pick of the most popular pregnancy pillows currently on the market, you need to decide which shape you want. Check out this comprehensive article about pregnancy pillow shape or simply read our quick guide below.

Option One: U Shaped Pregnancy Body Pillow: The U Shape pillow creates a big U-shaped nest. You curl up inside and snuggle in for full front and back support all night. Because of this all-around cushioned bumper effect, it’s good for back sleepers prone to roll over onto their backs in the middle of the night, but warning, it’s massive. Make sure your partner is on board since it will take up a large portion of your bed!

Option Two: C Shaped Pregnancy Body Pillow: The C Shape pillow wraps around you with the top curve of the “C” resting under your head and the lower curve of the “C” resting in between your legs. The C Shape is smaller and a bit more manageable than the full U shape (although it’s still a bulky item!), but it will require you to readjust in the middle of the night if you tend to turn over a lot.

 Option Three: Pregnancy Wedge Pillow: The wedge is a small, sloped, compact pillow that you can easily place under your bump or behind your back for targeted support.
