    Promising review: "I’m six months pregnant and I decided to get a pillow. There were a lot of choices and it seemed a little overwhelming. I didn’t want to buy a crappy deflated pillow. I purchased this one based on the stars. It seemed versatile and like it wouldn’t engulf my whole bed. It came in the mail and immediately poofed up. The cover was cottony and soft. It was nice and full. The price was right and I didn’t have to worry about buying a separate slip cover. I’m really glad the pillow didn’t have an odor or look/feel cheap. It has improved my sleeping and it has helped me be more on my left side. It’s comfortable and leaves an opening for my husband to cuddle me. I would recommend it. I’m literally laying on it now writing this review." —DrM@

    Get it from Amazon for $29.95+ (available in two styles and 10 colors).

    2. A small Boppy pregnancy wedge pillow if you're looking for something that'll take up the *least* amount of room but still be effective.

    Promising review: "I was absolutely miserable when trying to sleep at night. My hips were killing me, my back hurt, and I was trying to use a body pillow to prop up my 16-week bump. It was awful. So I ordered this pregnancy wedge pillow at like 2 a.m. one night when the discomfort was keeping me from falling back to sleep after my 57th trip to the bathroom. It's magic, I swear! I use it under my bump. It's small enough that I can sleep on it and still cuddle with my partner, which wasn't an option at all with the wall of body pillow between him and I previously. I'm considering ordering a second one to place behind my back, because I sometimes find that I've rolled into my back in my sleep; if I'm awake enough, I move the wedge to the small of my back before rolling, but having a second wedge would be more convenient. I find this to be the perfect size to support my bump without taking up too much bed real estate, and the perfect firmness to support without being uncomfortable." —Beth W.

    Get it from Amazon for $19.99.

    3. A doctor-designed "S.O.S. Side Sleeper" pregnancy wedge pillow from Belly Bandit to serve as your belly and back's new supportive BFF. It'll keep you in place while you're catching some ZZZs and is fully adjustable to accommodate any size or stage. It even comes with a travel case!

    Promising review: "This is a great pregnancy sleep pillow and has been the only one to keep me from rolling onto my back (natural back sleeper). I’m able to easily flip it in the night to switch sides. It’s also not bulky. Highly recommend if you’re having trouble training yourself to sleep on your side." —Amanda S.

    Get it from Belly Bandit for $89.95.

    4. A compact and adjustable Frida Mom pregnancy pillow fully equipped with cooling capabilities and a breathable micro-bead filling that you can bend into a C-, I-, L-, or U-shape to cater to your body's comfort needs.

    Promising review: "I'm currently 22 weeks pregnant with baby number four. My back and hips have been hurting and I need to sleep on my side and this pillow give great support to my knees, shoulders and neck. The best part is how adjustable it is. No more neck, shoulder blade, or hip pains. I've finally been getting good, comfortable sleep." —Yeli

    Get it from Target for $69.99.

    5. A CertiPUR-US body pillow from Brentwood Home complete with charcoal-infused memory foam and a gel fiberfill to snuggle with for as long as your heart desires.

    Promising review: "I sleep better now. I have fibromyalgia and am always looking for ways to improve the quality of my sleep. I have this pillow in the regular size and love it so decided to purchase the body pillow. I have no regrets. I sleep better and it helps to relieve the pressure on my legs. The pillow cover is so soft and I like that it is climate neutral and Greenguard gold certified." —Jennifer I.

    Get it from Brentwood Home for $139+ (available in two sizes).

    6. A compact, machine washable Boppy pregnancy pillow to help you stay put on your side while you're snoozin'.

    Promising review: "This Boppy pregnancy pillow is a lifesaver. Since the start of my second trimester, I've been trying my hardest to sleep on my sides and not my back as suggested. But I would keep waking up on my back or tossing from side to side with sore hips. Since purchasing this pillow a couple of weeks ago, I only turn over perhaps once during the night from one side to the other. And it keeps me from rolling onto my back. My husband has been able to sleep more soundly too because I'm not moving all around due to discomfort. I'm 21 weeks now, and there is still plenty of room for my belly to grow with this pillow. This is also much more reasonable to fit into a queen-sized bed with my husband than one of the huge U- or C-shaped pregnancy pillows." —Kayla

    Get it from Amazon for $34.99.

    7. A super fluffy pregnancy body pillow for anyone who tends to move around a bunch while they're sleeping. Plus, its U-shape means you won't need to keep readjusting it every time you move! 

    Reviewer image of the gray U-shaped pregnancy pillow

    And BTW, even people who *aren't* pregnant swear by this U-shaped pregnancy pillow.

    Promising review: "Bought this U-shaped pregnancy pillow at five months pregnant due to back and side pain that would bring me to tears sometimes. My doctor wanted me to start physical therapy but after buying the body pillow, I felt so much better that I decided to cancel my appointments. I can honestly say this pillow has been the absolute best purchase of my pregnancy. I’m currently seven months pregnant now and I don’t think I’ve slept a single night without it since receiving. It’s that good!!! Great support for my back and stomach. Love that the cover is removable for washing. You’ll definitely want to fluff it out after getting it in the mail since the packaging is very tight. I searched for days before deciding to purchase this pillow (so many options!!!) and I’m so pleased and happy I went with this one. It’s literally getting me through this pregnancy." —Demetria Wright

    Get it from Amazon for $47.49+ (available in three sizes and 11 colors).

    8. A cooling Zoma body pillow worthy of living on your bed forever (and ever and ever). Yes, long past your pregnancy days. Its airy cover helps keep the pillow's temp regulated while its shredded gel memory foam provides all the support you need to keep you feeling extra snug at all times.

    Promising review: "My pregnant wife loves this body pillow. It’s now an essential part of our sleep routine. It’s the size of a person and as comfortable as a cloud." —Harrison S.

    Get it from Zoma Sleep for $120.

    9. A memory foam pregnancy wedge pillow if you'd prefer something that'll support your belly but won't create a barrier between you and your partner.

    Promising review: "This beautiful little wedge might look like a simple pillow, but really it is the greatest creation known to man (and pregnant women). Since I've started using the Hiccapop, I am able to sleep comfortably through the night without my aching knees, hips, or back waking me up every few hours. I wake up in the morning feeling refreshed, and ready to face the day (or the four hours I make it before needing a nap again because, well, pregnancy). Seriously! Get this little pillow and get sleep while you can! On a side note, when I'm not using it to hoist up my size-of-a-whale baby bump, my dogs find it to be a very comfortable head rest." —Mrs.artteacher87

    Get it from Amazon for $24.92.

    10. A Leachco Snoogle pregnancy pillow to tuck under your head and between your knees so you'll always wake up nice and refreshed. See ya never again, morning body aches.

    Promising review: "I’m almost 6'0" and this Snoogle pregnancy pillow is a godsend! I’m almost 31 weeks pregnant and the past few weeks of sleep have been so uncomfortable, but I slept with this Snoogle pregnancy pillow last night for the first time and I am so impressed!!! It’s not too bulky, it fits in my bed along with my toddler and husband, as well. Highly recommend!!!" —Patricia Somariva

    Get it from Amazon for $57.99+ (available in three colors).

    11. A popular Queen Rose pregnancy pillow that'll be the "push" you need to finally stop settling on lining your bed with regular pillows. You deserve  something that won't need to be constantly readjusted and picked up off the floor throughout the night.

    Reviewer laying on light blue pillow

    Promising review: "This Queen Rose pregnancy pillow has been on my wish list for a very long time. After reading so many reviews and comments, I decided to purchase this brand. I opened the box and immediate disappointment flooded my brain. I was SO sad...it was TINY!!! Then, I opened the vac bag it was in and I audibly heard it inflating...I even took a Snapchat of it growing!!! I laid down to test it out, and honestly stayed on my side curled up for two hours, just because of how amazingly secure it made me feel. This pillow has to have been made by elves from Narnia, and it has to have been filled with downy fluff and the fibers of unicorn hide. The velvety smooth texture reminds me of a warm, safe place where as a child a lay, to hide from the thunder and the rain to quietly pass me bye-eee-eye. The pillow itself now resides almost as a fifth limb, a non cancerous growth, an extension of my body that nurtures and comforts me, taking my tears and fears and wrapping them up with love and magical fairy dust. If you don't buy this pillow after reading my review, I truly believe an impish creature might visit you in the middle of the night to steal your most beloved child, but I'm not certain...what I CAN tell you is that I now a: work from home, b: no longer have to worry about saving money to buy pants, and c: might have found my soulmate. I write this review from the velvety embrace of my cushioned love pillow, whom I have named Prince Geoffrey. This Queen Rose pregnancy pillow is the stuff of miracles and comes from a land where woodland creatures rule the forest, and every creature has their own special comfort pillow." —speedrcr456

    Get it from Amazon for $48.59+ (available in three sizes and 11 colors).

    12. A pregnancy sleep pillow designed to wrap around you like a belt while supporting your belly with cushy memory foam on each side. In other words, you can literally just walk around wearing your pillow if you want. You're welcome.

    Promising review: "I’m pretty sure I’ve been through every preggers pillow on the market, and this is by far my favorite because it has been the most effective. I’m a back sleeper so I needed to train myself to sleep on my side. It’s multifunctional, it’s the perfect size, it’s firm yet soft, and it actually stays cool. I was initially surprised by the filling...they’re like beads almost, but I love it, as it makes it easy to 'mold' into the shape you need it for at the time. Great for front or back support if you’re laying on your side, behind the back or neck sitting up, and awesome in between your knees/legs. The pillow case fabric is super soft, too. And I love that the case is removable and washable, but there is no annoying zipper you have to try to avoid. I’m looking forward to using this when baby is here too! Couldn’t be happier with this purchase and highly recommend to anyone looking for an amazingly comfortable and multi use pillow...before, during, and after pregnancy." —AMH

    Get it from Amazon for $46.66+ (available in two sizes).

    13. A C-shaped pregnancy body pillow that'll gently cradle your body and support your back, belly, hips, and knees so you can *actually* get a good night's sleep (especially when you're in your second and third trimesters).

    Promising review: "I wish that I bought one of these pillows sooner. I sleep on my side, but have to have back support, also. I used to line the bed with pillows – behind my back, between my legs, under my head, and in front of me, as an arm rest! Since this arrived, I have done away with my mass of pillows, as this provides me with the support I need everywhere. One of my favorite purchases, and I only regret not buying one sooner!" —PiSeesU

    Get it from Amazon for $42.95+ (available in 10 colors).

    14. A cozy nüe by Novaform wedge pillow from Target destined to be your ~nüe~ fave spot to sit back and relax. It'll also provide both belly and back support without taking up too much space!

    Promising review: "I have used this pillow for almost a week now and it is amazing. Not too thin or too thick. I usually use two body pillows and would get so frustrated 'cause I would kick them away. But that doesn't happen with this. I will be using this until it falls apart. It has improved my sleep greatly." —Punkymay86

    Get it from Target for $42.49.

    15. A luxurious organic latex pregnancy body pillow from Coyuchi that's naturally breathable and resistant to mold, mildew, and dust mites. It even comes with an organic cotton sateen pillow cover and a reusable organic cloth bag!

    Promising review: "I love my pregnancy body pillow. Probably the best I've owned. The latex is perfect material. Soft, yet supportive. It's also plenty long enough. I am 6'1" and it is difficult to find a straight body pillow this long. I can put it between my ankles, knees, hug it and it still comes up to my chin. Perfect for the taller side sleeper." —Erik K.

    Get it from Coyuchi $248.

    16. A multipurpose C-shaped PharMeDoc pregnancy pillow practically guaranteed to become the star of your pillow collection – now and post-pregnancy. It'll provide both upper and lower body support and make you feel like you're wrapped in a cozy lil' cocoon!

    Promising review: "I waited to buy this pillow thinking I would be able to just handle being surrounded by regular bed pillows and made it up to 27 weeks before caving and treating myself. I wish I hadn't waited. It is so worth it. The pillow surrounds your body if you want it to, but I just curl mine up in a figure-eight shape and sleep on top of it. I can lay anyway I want on top and don't feel hip pain or pressure throughout the night. It is so comfortable I am finally sleeping and it is helping with hip and back pain. Plus, you don't have to worry about your many pillows falling on the ground or being thieved by your partner." —KolbR

    Get it from Amazon for $29.95 (available in four colors).

    17. And a pressure-relieving Tempur-Pedic body pillow filled with individually shaped micro-cushions and a removable silk and rayon made from bamboo blend cover to *instantly* make your bed feel like an indoor oasis.

    Get it from Bed Bath & Beyond for $199.99.

    Here's to finally being able to sleep through the night!
