  1. Hello, I am 27 weeks and have not had any back pain thus far. I sleep with a regular pillow between my knees, but lately, I am so concerned about sleeping only on my sides that I wake up feeling like my shoulders and hips had been compressed together all night long (like I was folded down the spine). I’ve been doing prenatal yoga to help it, but thinking I need a pregnancy pillow. Any specific brands you suggest? Thanks!
