Becoming a mother is one of the most exciting times in a woman’s life. But it’s no easy task to “grow” another human being. Did you know that insomnia affects close to 80% of pregnant women?
That’s usually because as preggo mamas, your body isn’t shaped like it normally is and you’re carrying a growing belly around all day long. That puts additional stress on your body all day long, but especially when you sleep. If you’re pregnant you know that it sometimes feels impossible to find a comfortable way to sleep during pregnancy. And when you sleep in a bad position, you can end up with a sore back, heartburn, restless leg syndrome, shortness of breath, and even increased anxiety. You’re already working hard both mentally and physically all day long, shouldn’t you be getting the most out of your precious sleep?
That’s what the team at BumpNest thought as well. After reading rave reviews about their Pregnancy Body Pillow, we decided to test it out ourselves. We handed it over to our sister Melanie, one of our MyChicBump model (25 weeks) to test it out for a week. Here is what she had to say:
“We’ve been testing out the ‘Cloud 9’ and by ‘we’ I mean me, the hubs and our one year old daughter. It has quickly become the ‘family pillow’ and I am not liking this one bit! It has been a [
life] sleep saver! It is so ridiculously comfy! It really is like falling a sleep on a cloud! And because its adjustable, I can fluff it up to fit me and provide support where I need it most.”
At MyChicBump one of our favorite things about it is the shape. You can use it to help you sit up straight and give your back support, to wrap around you for some extra comfort, across your lap so you can actually see your laptop again (and so the heat from the computers isn’t directly on your growing belly), or best of all, as a sleeping support to keep your bump nestled up, and your body aligned correctly.
Plus, there are 9 different fun prints and colors to choose from so it’s a great way to add some color to your bedroom!
Looks like we’re going to end up with one for every member of the family at this point!
