    I got one from Argos for £20, mothercare also have them online for £20.99 (in store £29.99). They don't curve like the dream genie, just long and straight, but I love mine!!x

    I got one of those triangle support pillows from dunelm for £7.99! Cheap as chips!

    Those other ones are sooooooo expensive! Talk about cashing in on aching pregnant ladies! :)

    Tell me about it! I don't regret spending the money on mine though, it has pretty much paid for itself in less than a month by all the sleep I've been able to get again though!

    There's a Dream Genii going on eBay right now ending in 16 hours and it's at £5.70. I got one a few weeks ago at one of those 'Baby Nearly New' sales for a tenner. Do you have those near you?

    What are the benefits of these cushions? I'm 21 weeks and dont understand why I'd need one at the mo. I'm sure I'll find out soon though.

    It probably depends on the size of your bump, mine got big fast so my back got sore fast, and the tossing and turning kept waking me up. The pillow helps to keep you in place and relieves a lot of weight off your back and hips. It also helps support your bump.

    The one I'm using is my one from last pregnancy and haven't got the heart to get rid of it! My hubby hates it though and has decided he's chucking it out and getting me a new one! I actually love it (I may hide it before he bins it!) It's so comfy! x

    I got the triangle wedge pillow from babies r us for 9.99 and it's fantastic! I'd really recommend it for supporting your bump in bed and your back when sitting, and it's a complete bargain!

    I got the Dreamgenii and though I don't regret it I am not totally enchanted with it either. I still wake up on my back as the back bit (thankfully) doesn't stop me rolling over; I'd probably feel claustrophobic if it did. I also still have the occasional hip pain and wonder if maybe it is too short for my height? I am 5' 8 1/2. It usually wedges itself between my thighs and not my knees and even when I manage to wrestle it down, I would like to be able to put my top calf on it as well but I don't like curving my legs back like that. Hm. I think I might have had more benefit from a straight long pillow. Dunno.
