Worth the investment?

Is a pregnancy pillow worth the investment or can you get the same comfort from a body pillow? I hate to spend $40+ for a pillow but I am uncomfortable!!

I'm considering getting one to act as a bumper to keep my toddler's feet off of me. I've had friends recommend them, but I've never had one myself.

I use a regular pillow and it works just fine for me!

I've always used a body pillow or a bunch of regular sized pillows. I actually like having a bunch of smaller ones because it's easier to add support where I need it at the time.

 I've never owned a pregnancy pillow but I have a few friend that have sworn by the snoogli (I think that's what it's called) and have said it's like the best thing since sliced bread.

My husband has extreme hate for my body pillow friend (he has tried to hide it a couple of times)! He has to cuddle before he can sleep, but I need the back support of the body pillow to sleep. It's just a generic $10 walmart body pillow, but it helps a lot.

I have a bed bath & beyond body pillow but it's to big/thick for me to use :( but we have a memory foam pillowtop bed without springs so this effects how my body sinks into the bed.

I love my pregnancy pillow. However, I found mine at a thrift store for $5. I probably wouldn't spend that much on one but it really does do the trick if you have the extra money! Regular pillows go flat lol.

I love mine! but I also didn't full price for it. A body pillow works just as well I would think but it does go flat quicker.
