Somethings all i can do is cry.. im so lost with this thing.

  • Why were you eating McDonald’s during your pregnancy?.. Or eating that garbage in general? McDonald’s is horrible for you and your developing baby’s body/ brain development.

  • thanks for your help. in my case I get pregnant following method: “infertilityinwomen. com” (google it) It is a natural method that helped me get pregnant.

  • Hi, what brand is the blue full body wedge pillow that you have which can prop us up especially for backsleepers? Where did you buy it from?

  • I was never a side sleeper and sleeping on the side has a been a huge challenge, so I got the U shaped pregnancy pillows and after a while I had shoulder pains so I played around with elevating my head pillow but then soon got hip pain due to a new pressure point..it’s a total nightmare! I shift in bed about 30 times a night and I barely sleep:(

  • Am 34weeks pregnancy and I can’t sleep with my both side because am not comfortable with the kick for both side,so what should I do?

  • Hi there, I’m 18 weeks pregnant and already have that J-shaped pillow you showed in your video.

Now my tailbone is in pain and I have no idea how to help myself:( and I spent 60 euros on that pillow.

  • I have the Queen Rose U Shaped Pillow 65 inches. Perfect size, but it’s too firm and hard for my head, neck, and especially my shoulders. What is the SOFTEST pregnancy pillow? I’m desperate.

  • I am nine weeks along. Our first. So happy for your tips. It’s important for me to land these prenatal transitions while still in my first trimester. Thank you ��

  • I’m not a woman so this doesn’t apply to me but its still pretty helpful, something i can pass to my pregnant sisters to watch. Must be nice for the women that are already side sleepers but it must be hard for women that sleep on their backs to make that transition. Very helpful and informative��

  • Hi there! Can you tell me what pillow you are using at 1:31 in the video? The blue wedge shaped pillow looks like it would be great for reading at night before bed. I have been trying so hard to find a good reading pillow and am having a heckuva time finding one that’s comfortable for me. I tried the Husband Pillow and wanted so bad to like it but I just found it super uncomfortable. Any advice would be much appreciated. That would be a great topic of a future video too (unless you already have one and I missed it lol). Thank you!!:)

  • You so lucky to have had the pregnancy pillow my sides are sore and I keep waking up due to that but unfortunately I can’t afford the pillow. Best of luck for all those pregnant ladies. I’m now 38 weeks pregnant

  • My sister had triplets and had massive troubles getting good sleep. I remember her talking about needing to sleep on her left side also. My heart goes out to each who’s struggled to sleep while pregnant.

  • This is excellent information that will certainly help a lot of people. I have no plans to become pregnant, but I kinda like the pregnancy pillows they could be of great comfort when you’re sick and have to sleep upright.

  • I’ve been following your great YouTube channel and I am wondering about the pregnancy pillows I have to pick! I am about to have a breast augmentation surgery which it need me to keep sleeping post surgery in a sitting position. So I’ve watched you reviewing about the Queen Rose and Snoogle Leachco pillows and I am confused now what to pick? I am not pregnant and I want to pick these pillows for post my breast augmentation surgery and I want also to keep using them for everyday using even after the breast augmentation surgery recovery went well.

    So please depends in what I’ve mentioned above what do you recommend me to pick please?
