Pillow Vs. Husband

:) Out of curiousity, (when/if) you (are/were) pregnant did you ever surround yourself in the bed with pillows, or have a special body pillow to help you sleep?

I had a body pillow and several others b/c I could never get comfortable in the bed, and my poor little husband had no room in the bed to sleep, and was sincerely jealous that I cuddled with the body pillow instead of him. We had many fights over the pillow situation.

Anyone else experience that?

  • I have a maternity pillow that I use, and my husband gets annoyed with how much room it takes up in bed and that I dont cuddle with him. But when he goes to bed first he steals it and uses it

  • I do surround myself with pillows on one side but I usually use him as a pillow on the other. As I get more and more pregnant I even put my belly on him and let him hold the weight up.

  • I'm not pregnant, but I sleep surrounded by pillows AND my husband! I can't get comfortable any other way!

  • I have a complicated "pillow scaffold" involving a leg pillow and belly-suipport pillow. However, I don't think my husband has a problem with it, he goes to bed later than I do and when he gets in bed, whether I'm asleep or not, I will flip over into "cuddle position" and have a cuddle. Which both of us enjoy, since it's basically the only physical contact we have right now.
