Last night...

With my wife's pregnancy she's been having a little bit of back pain at night and bought what's called a snoogle to help her stay on her side. Here's what they look like:



Last night I came to bed at around 11:00. As I was getting ready for bed, my wife was engaged in a full-on struggle trying to free herself from the snoogle. She had the pillow against her back like the top picture and had to work a bit to free herself so she could use the bathroom. She came back to bed and said that when she woke up, she couldn't figure out why she was stuck in the middle of a letter c.

What an interesting invention! I love to sleep on my side, and put a pillow between my knees as well to prevent back pain in the morning. I will have to put that on my shopping list for after the tax rebates come in.

Mr. T, this has actually helped her back a lot the past couple of nights.

Esteban, I'm glad I could be your source.

Yeah, when I was awaiting the birth of Mister Awesome, I used one of those full length body pillows. It gives that between the knees support, and also something to cuddle on topside, but without the feeling that C is for Constriction, and hey, that's good enough for me.

It appears that she's gotten used to the new pillow and it's really helping her back. We use a full length body pillow for our regular pillow. They're nice.
