Some of the not-so-lovely side effects of pregnancy are heartburn and insomnia. I had them pretty bad with my first pregnancy and with the twins it was just impossible to sleep. My husband, a light sleeper himself, was sad to see me, formerly a very heavy sleeper, toss and turn all night long trying to find a position that would make me feel comfortable as my bump grew bigger and bigger.

One day a box arrived in the mail. "For you," he said. Inside was this pink and blue U-shaped maternity pillow that basically took up my entire side of the bed. I laughed, thinking there was no way this would help any of my issues. And wow, was I wrong. Quickly the pillow, which I named Bill, became our third wheel in bed. I would use it to rest when I was out of breath after taking a shower, use it to elevate my feet when they were super swollen after my commute from work to home, and obviously, I would snuggle it during the night because yes, it made sleeping way more comfortable.

And it's not just me who loves the Queen Rose pregnancy pillow. Over 18,000 people have given it a nearly perfect 5-star review on Amazon. You can choose from 55 inches to up to 65 inches long, and it comes in a handful of colors for you to choose from. However, the pink and blue version that I had is currently $39.99 which is a total steal.

Looking at the reviews, it seems like I'm not the only one who named the pillow. Here's an example:

I was very skeptical about buying a pillow just for my pregnancy and resisted for a long time, instead of arranging several regular pillows around me every night. But when sleeping started getting more uncomfortable around six months I broke down and bought this based on all the great reviews, and it was the best decision I could have made!

My husband and I joke about how ridiculous it looks and have nicknamed it Sideshow Bob, but the amazing comfort this pillow provides can't be fully described! It supports my legs/hips and belly completely, the head support is great and it's wonderful to be able to roll over to my other side without having to re-arrange four pillows. I haven't washed the cover yet and don't plan to anytime soon since I lay a pillowcase over where my face rests and change it every few days. We have a queen-sized bed and space hasn't been an issue. I'm almost 9 months along now and don't know what I would have done without it!

Get the pillow now before it sells out!
