Often these look like a six-foot tall C. The idea is you rest your head on the top part of the C, wrap your body and belly around the long part, putting it between your knees to relieve pressure from your back, and rest your feet on the bottom part. One common brand you can get in baby stores or online is called the Snoogle total body pillow. It helps remove pressure from your hips and lower back. After baby is born you can use this pillow for baby's tummy time, as a breastfeeding pillow and, later, as support when the baby is sitting. I still have my pillow from my first pregnancy, although my husband confiscates it some nights. You will also need to have a good selection of blankets that you can take off and put on as your body heats up and cools off. To keep a happy relationship with your partner, it's a good idea to have your own blankets at easy access on your side of the bed, so your partner doesn't end up suffering from your temperature adjustments.
