My New BFF

As soon as I announced my pregnancy, a few friends proclaimed, “get you a Snoogle!”. I looked it up on Amazon & brushed off spending $50+ on a body pillow.

Then I became 28 weeks pregnant & was sleeping in 1 hour spurts surrounded by 5+ pillows, behind my head, propping up my shoulders, between my legs, by my hips & on either side for belly & back support. It was getting ridiculous. Husband had no room in bed & I was still uncomfortable.

At childbirth class last Saturday, another pregnant momma-to-be mentioned loving her Snoogle. Jason googled it this time & said $50 is worth it if it helps you sleep. I still said no on Saturday evening. Then slept rough Saturday & Sunday nights before emailing him Monday morning & saying “I give in, Amazon prime that shit”.

The Snoogle arrived Tuesday afternoon {right before we headed off to the hospital for our PTL scare}, & I whipped it out of the package Tuesday night. I’m not sure who loves it more, Jason {who has more room in bed}, Moekitty {who loves sleeping up against it}, or me. I think me since I’ve been sleeping in 3-4 hour stretches since having it in bed. My favorite position is having it under my shoulders, resting one arm under & one arm above it, the belly on it, & having the curvy parts in between & under my legs. Even if I only use it for the next 7 weeks or less, it’s money well spent.

New BFF

Snoogle & Amazon have no idea who I am. While it would’ve been awesome for them to provide it to me; they didn’t & this is just my own glowing opinion.

    OMG, I seriously could not live without it with BOTH my pregnancies. It totally is your best friend!!!

  2. I’ll take it off your hands when you don’t need it anymore! My bump is still small enough to do with a regular body pillow for now, but in 7 weeks-ish, I might be in the market for a second-hand Snoogle…
