Pregnancy Almost Ruined Our Marriage, but One Small Change Saved Us Both

By emily randalL, DECEMBER 29,2022


As a first-time mom, I was beyond excited when I found out that I was pregnant. 

I had read all the pregnancy books, taken classes, and was confident that I was prepared for what was to come.

 However, nothing could have prepared me for the physical and emotional toll that pregnancy would take on me.

From the moment I found out I was pregnant, my body started to change. I was exhausted all the time, but couldn't seem to get comfortable enough to fall asleep. 

My hips and back ached constantly, and I found myself tossing and turning all night. I had no idea that getting a good night's sleep would become such a struggle.

My mood was all over the place. One moment I would be laughing and happy, and the next I would be crying over the smallest thing. 

My husband tried to be supportive, but I could tell that he was getting frustrated with my constant mood swings.

As the weeks went by, my discomfort only seemed to get worse. I developed terrible heartburn, which made it difficult to eat or sleep. 

I would wake up in the middle of the night, feeling like my chest was on fire. My husband tried to help by propping up pillows behind me, but nothing seemed to work.

The lack of sleep and constant discomfort started to take a toll on my relationship with my husband. 

We argued more frequently, and I found myself snapping at him over the smallest things. 

We stopped sleeping in the same bed because I couldn't get comfortable and would wake up multiple times a night.

One night, after a particularly bad argument, I broke down in tears.

I realized that my pregnancy was causing me to feel like a completely different person, and I didn't like who I was becoming. 

I wanted to be able to enjoy this experience and share it with my husband, but instead, it felt like we were growing apart.

That's when I started researching solutions to my sleep problems. I tried everything from sleeping on my side to drinking warm milk before bed, but nothing seemed to work.

 I was starting to lose hope.

Then, one day, I stumbled upon a pregnancy pillow online. I was skeptical at first, but the reviews were overwhelmingly positive. 

People were raving about how comfortable the pillow was and how it had improved their sleep quality.

I decided to give it a try and ordered one online. When it arrived, I couldn't believe how soft and comfortable it was. I snuggled up with it that night, and for the first time in months, I was able to get a good night's sleep.

The pillow supported my growing belly, hips, and back, and took the pressure off my joints. It even helped alleviate my heartburn by elevating my upper body.

 I woke up feeling refreshed and energized, which improved my mood and made it easier to get along with my husband.

Over time, the pillow became an essential part of my pregnancy routine. It provided me with the comfort and support I needed to get a good night's sleep, which was crucial for both me and my growing baby.

Looking back, I can't believe how much my sleep quality impacted my overall well-being during my pregnancy.

 I'm grateful that I found a solution that worked for me and my body. If you're struggling with pregnancy discomfort and sleepless nights, I highly recommend giving a pregnancy pillow a try.

⭐⭐⭐⭐⭐ Husband approved... oh and the pregnant lady who needs it approves it also!  - Shelby K.

As soon as I opened it my husband wanted to try it out, he then proceeded to take a 3 hour nap in it, which he slept like a baby. His only complaint is that he doesn't have one for himself and since I now sleep with my pillow every night instead of laying with my head on his chest with his arm around me, we've slept that way for so long, he said feels lonely and its hard for him to sleep now without holding me, knowing I'm there and safe because he's physically touching me... so now I have to buy another one for my 6 foot man baby husband who needs one for himself apparently, not the pregnant woman who's making a baby and can't sleep comfortably anymore lol

I really don't know how I lasted my first pregnancy with our first without this pillow and I know I will continue to use it even after this pregnancy. I'll never sleep without it ever again.

I sleep with it, lay in it and watch TV or just relax in it to help relieve some pain.

PROS: best sleep I have ever had even before when I wasn't pregnant, it relieves back pain, the pressure on your spine and tailbone area, having that cushion in-between your knees takes the weight and pressure off of the hip you're laying on, I can comfortably sleep on my side and back, I'm finally getting GOOD, deep sleep. Perfect size and shape, I'm 5'3"-5'4" and my husband is about 6'2" and its perfect for both of us. I was worried about it not being full enough because some of the other pregnancy pillows on Amazon looked like they didn't have enough stuffing in them and that was a big complaint in the reviews of those ones, except this one. That's ultimately why I chose this one over all of the others. And I have to say it's perfect! Not too soft and not too hard. Stuffed enough to support your back and body and not too much where it's stiff.

CONS: husband says I'm cheating on him with a pillow................

Overall 10/10 if I could recommend anything to any pregnant woman, it's definitely THIS. You may not even realize you need this but just trust me, even if you're sleeping ok, this will make you feel like you're sleeping on a cloud! Honestly, pregnant or not, I think this could benefit everyone. Weather you have back or leg or hip pain, if you don't sleep well, or you do sleep well, this thing is so comfy, this would help anyone get a good night's rest or even just to relax and lay in.

⭐⭐⭐⭐⭐ Must have!  - EMILY V.

; I LOVE THIS PILLOW SO SO MUCH! I cant sleep without it now! Its perfect i wake up with my hips feeling so so much better than they did without it. and my back feels better too(with having scoliosis) still sore somewhat but thats normal for having scoliosis. i just LOVE how i feel like im being hugged all night with this pillow. i use it both ways like when i want to turn over i just turn and use the part that sticks out at the end between my knees and it works just fine that way. and when me and my partner want to cuddle he just moves the smaller part out and uses it as a pillow too lol. if your debating on buying this pillow like i did, GET IT!!! i hesitated for weeks to get it and finally got it, but i ordered a pound bag of polyfill too, just cause i like the area in between my knees firmer than the rest. but its perfect. the cover is even washable(cold cycle only).

⭐⭐⭐⭐⭐ Very comfortable and took pressure off my back - SARAH G.

I bought it a few months ago and it’s been long enough that I can give an honest review. This. Is. The. Best. Pillow. I. Have. Ever. Used. I love that you can take in or out some of the stuffing depending on your comfort. I love how easy it is to remove the cover to wash it and easy to put back on. I love the back and belly support. I used to move a lot and my husband has noticed that I don’t move around anymore. Easy to move, if you have to get off the bed to use the restroom. And personally. The best part is that you can move the small arm upwards and cuddle with your partner. He moves the little arm up and uses it as a pillow I still have the longer arm between my legs for the back and belly support.

I must add that it’s so comfortable other people are going to try to use it. My husband uses it when he naps on his days off. My mom uses it when I leave it in the couch and even my cats love being right in the middle of the pillow.

In other words 10/10. I don’t have any cons.

To any pregnant woman, believe me this is an honest and true review, this pillow is a must have, during my pregnancy I had in the second trimester a lot of pain in my back and lower belly, but this helps me to relax and in my third trimester, after the belly get bigger, it’s hard to find a good position to sleep, but I’m using this pillow every single night, and it helps me to take the rest I need the only issue I have with is that it taking a lot of place on my bad so it’s somehow bothering my husband, but to me it’s really a must and important thing for any pregnant woman.

One more thing, My dog loves it too, so I bought her one
