    I have no advice- going through the same thing!! My hips/outer thighs hurt so bad! Let us know if the preggo pillow works- I have a full length body pillow but it isnt doing much at all!

    Pillow between legs will ease it a bit. I also started pulling duvet right around me & tucking it under bump.

    My preg pillow has arrived today so fingers crossed its better!

    Snap....my hips and also my knees hurt from one being on top of the other all night. I have quite a soft blanket and i now tuck it in front of me (i kind of hug it like a person if that makes sense), so in way it takes some of the weight off my hips and i put some of it between my legs and it works. My hips have stopped hurting and so have my knees. Its a pretty big blanket so i can mould it where i want and its nice and soft (its one of those snuggles thats meant for sitting on sofa with!)
    I find its the only thing that helps and if i turn over its easy to drag over the other side.

    I'll tell you how it is once i get it and what type it is =] My partner is fab at stealing the covers so tucking some under my bump would result in him flipping me off the bed rolling over himself LOL! I'll see if i can find a spare pillow and tuck it under my belly =D

    I hate this discomfort!
