I had my old waterbed which I loved (I unplugged it when I was in it). However there are other alternatives. This article talks about the maternity air mattress. Read morE:
From the site:
If a maternity air bed can help a pregnant mom get a reasonably comfortable night sleep, I'm all for it. The maternity bed (one product is called the Gentle Air Maternity Bed) is a straightforward idea developed by an ob/gyn. It's an inflatable air bed with a pregnant tummy-sized hole in the middle of it. The hole apparently comes with an inflatable pillow so you can adjust the size and firmness of the tummy-opening.
Sounds intriguing, doesn't it?
However, the real question is, does this idea actually work? Does a maternity air bed help pregnant women sleep better? Understanding that no one solution will work for everyone, I would still love to know if this product is helpful.
I have looked online at pregnancy forums, listening to moms who have used a maternity air bed or the Gentle Air Maternity air bed.
* Most of the women had positive things to say about the maternity bed.
* Most who have used it reported less back and leg pain and better sleep overall, which is great news.
* There were some women who were not happy with the air bed, stating that it simply wasn't comfortable.
