Being pregnant isn’t all rainbows and butterflies. It’s a magical time in your life, but there are so many things that happen to our bodies when we are growing another human being, and a lot of it can be pretty uncomfortable.
Around the second trimester (sometimes earlier!), your stomach starts to grow and your body tries to compensate by distributing your weight differently. This is no picnic on your back!! Through both of my pregnancies, I dealt with different kinds of pain. My first was filled with lower back pain and slight sciatic nerve pain, and my second graced me with Symphysis Pubis Dysfunction, also known as SPD. Both times I tried to find comfort at night with multiple pillows placed in between my legs, then resorted to buying different pregnancy pillows that would wither and wilt over time, becoming flat and useless.
When I heard about the Bump Nest pregnancy pillow, I had just given birth to my second baby and was drooling. This pillow was something I only dreamed about with my terrible pubic bone those last few months!
The Bump Nest pregnancy pillow is the
king QUEEN of pregnancy pillows! There are so many great things about it, and we brought in Lily, who is about seven months along to test it out for us and really give you all the scoop.
Here are our favorite things about this pillow:
The way they describe it on their website is to think of yummy yoga pants, and I really can’t think of a better way to put it. Right out of the box, this was the softest pillow I have ever felt!
What’s that you say? Your pregnancy pillow’s case is machine washable too? Well what if I told you that this pillow and case are BOTH machine washable?* Yep. They totally get it. There’s no beating around the bush here…pregnancy can be messy. Cough a little too hard at night, or strain too hard trying to turn over and there may be a need to wash your pillowcase and pillow. Even better? Washing your Bump Nest Pillow will fluff it back into shape. Love that.
Mold that baby to fit your body the way you need it to. You can have extra pillow where you need it, and make more room where you don’t.
This is quality you can see and feel and you know it’s going to stand the test of time…and the test of a tired restless pregnant woman. The materials they use are such high quality-something you really need in a pillow you will be using every night!
That’s the sound of comfort, folks! The Bump Nest Pillow relieves all those aches and pains we get when we’re pregnant, including Sciatica, Restless Leg Syndrome, lower back pain, and Symphysis Pubis Dysfunction (SPD).
Lily, our tester also suffers from SPD and messaged me the morning after her first night and this is the exact words she sent:
The Bump Nest Pillow comes with a case, and you can choose from their nine adorable designs! Lily is using the “Pacific Peacock” cover above, and how adorable are those feathers? We also love the modern look of the cheveron designs they have!
Bump Nest also offers a wedge to help with acid reflux relief. It works along with your pillow to prop you up in a position to help make that burning much more comfortable! I love the fact that they leave an opening for your arm to slide through too!
The only downside to this pillow is that it is online only-no retail locations. This may not be a terrible thing, but I know some moms prefer not to shop online. Seriously though…that’s the ONLY negative thing!
We are so impressed with the Bump Nest pregnancy pillow that we are going to give one away to one of our lucky readers!!! That’s right! We are giving away one Bump Nest pillow in your choice of cover design. Simply enter below!
