Attacked By My Maternity Pillow

My Snoogle (TM) tried to kill me in my sleep. I awoke, struggling against its poufy arms and almost had an anxiety attack.

What is a Snoogle? It's a special maternity pillow, meant to help a preggers lady sleep more comfortably. Support for back, tummy, and so forth. I was intrigued by the idea of a body pillow when I was expecting Q, but I insisted that we didn't have the room, I didn't want to store it, didn't want to pay so much money, didn't need it, and so on. By month eight, I promised myself that next time, I would just buy a darn pillow.

Lady O and another friend recommended the Snoogle, so SwingDaddy ordered one for my birthday. Q found it really comfortable.

After it almost took me out, the little dude took it upon himself to do battle for me.

Fierce pillow.

Look at it rear up.

I lay the Snoogle at your feet, Mama.

Now that the pillow is tamed, I'm ready to try it again tonight.

I can see why--that thing must be twice as big as you are!

That thing really IS huge! Looks comfy though... I could snuggle that thing even without being preggers!

That thing looks awesome. With Pumpkinpie, I had two body pillows, which gave me pretty much the same effect. Of course, Misterpie was clinging to the other edge of the bed by his fingernails, but it is all about the comfort of the one with the big belly, right?

It does look comfy... I never did find a way to create a pillow fort for my belly out of the standard fare.

Oooh, I wish I had had one of those. I always had pillows all around me throughout my pregnancies, desperately trying to stay comfortable enough to stay asleep!

O. mentioned this post to me. I don't think I would've survived pregnancy without my Snoogle!

It's a great idea...and I'm a side sleeper as it is. My first pregnancy, I loved the extra pillows - though DH was a little miffed he'd been replaced as my snuggler.

Whoa, feisty little pillow!

If I ever get pregnant again, I am definitely springing for a pillow like that!
