Bump Nest Review

I received an item from Bump Nest for the sole purpose of this review

I have always required a pillow for between my legs while I'm pregnant. I'm on my 3rd pregnancy now and nothing has changed. With my daughter I bought a cheap body pillow from the store and used that, it worked, but wasn't the best. With my son I just used an extra head pillow between my knees, again it was alright, but definitely not very supportive. So this time around I wanted a real supportive pillow, something meant for pregnancy and so I set out to find the right pillow. I stumbled on Bump Nest and I'm so glad I did. 

I had Symphysis Pubis Dysfunction (SPD) with my son and it was so painful. I literally got this pillow JUST in time for that to kick in this time. I'm still in extreme pain during the day, but at night I can get a nice restful sleep with my pillow. 

The pillow has a short side to support your back and a long side for your belly and legs. 
The cover unzips off the pillow and is 100% machine washable. The pillow is also machine washable. 

I got the Pacific Peacock and it's such a nice soft, subtle print. 

This pillow is the softest I've ever felt. I cuddled up with it right away and I literally just melted into the pillow. 
Normally when I sleep I wake up a few times in the night, I go to roll over and then wake up slightly and fall back asleep. With this pillow, it's hard to roll over so I literally slept from 10:30 until my husband's alarm went off at 5:30 am the next day. I got 7 hours straight without waking once OR rolling over once. 

I thought that not being able to roll over would hurt me (my arms falling asleep, my legs hurting etc), but I feel AMAZING when I wake up in the morning. I'm fully rested, not in any pain at all and feel great. 

Although my belly faces the edge of the bed, so getting out of bed in the morning can be a slight challenge getting around the pillow haha. 

I also like to just lay on my back in the pillow and put my arms on the side, it hugs you so perfectly and feels great. 
This pillow is currently with us in Disney. I was not leaving the house without it AT ALL!
It's the most comfortable pillow I've ever tried. I think I'll continue to use it even after I have the baby!!

Price: At $89 it is more expensive than other pillows, but truly it's amazing and so worth it!

Overall: *****

I too used a body pillow for my first pregnancy. Maybe I will upgrade for my next.
