During my last pregnancy I suffered from horrid pelvic pain which made turing over in bed pure torture. This pain is mainly due to the hormones released to help your pelvis expand to allow the baby to make his/her exit. I tried so many things to help the pain go away but nothing really help. The only thing that provided even a little relief was putting a pillow between my legs. The problem was the pillow never stayed in place. I unfortunately went through the entire 2nd and 3rd trimester in pain. Thankfully once I had my son, the pain disappeared completely. That is, until I got pregnant again.
There was no way I was going to go through this entire pregnancy in pain too. I decided I needed to find a pillow that would actually stay in place.
One day while shopping at Bed Bath and Beyond I came upon the Contour Memory Foam Leg Pillow. The packaging claims: "It restores alignment of back, hips and knees, stabilizes pelvis and lower back, cushions knees and legs, and improves spine alignment." This pillow sounded exactly like what I needed. Another plus was that it was only $19.99 so even if it didn't work I wasn't spending a fortune.
I was so excited to use this pillow and I wasn't disappointed. The pillow is curved to fit the curve of your legs. Also, since it is memory foam, it curves to fit your legs. The pillow stayed in place all night long and provided me with some relief. The best thing is that after weeks of use, my pain started to go away completely. I really think the pillow is helping me stay aligned and therefore easing and even curing my pain (along with chiropractic care and exercise).
If you are suffering from back pain, hip pain, or pelvic pain, I highly recommend that you try this pillow. I am so glad I found this pillow and found some relief.
