Between the heartburn, trips to the bathroom and constant worrying (over the car seat, daycare costs, not sleeping—take your pick), getting a decent night’s shut-eye is the ultimate in pregnancy unicorns. But one thing that might help? A pillow designed to support your growing body. From U- or C-shaped pillows to wedges, they all support in slightly different ways depending on your needs. "When choosing a pregnancy pillow, consider its shape, size, filling material, support and alignment, removable and washable cover, adjustability, hypoallergenic and safe materials and durability," says Dr. Shelby Harris, sleep expert.
