Because when you're pregnant, pillows are a big deal.

I've mentioned  incessantly just a couple of times lately about how hard sleep is these days, and as I get bigger, it just gets more difficult to get comfortable and actually get any amount of real sleep. I currently sleep on a mattress on the floor due to my constant moving around at night and need for approximately 9 pillows in various configurations... all in a vain attempt to get some rest.

In December I was contacted about reviewing the Form-Fit Pillow and I was all like "yes, please, anything!". And then the pillow came, and so did Christmas, and it wasn't until about a week and a half ago when I realized that I had a pillow. Sitting in a box. That I wasn't using. Fail.

After using it for a week and a half and have enjoyed each and every single night with that comfy, cozy bundle. Now, it's not a miracle worker. I still sleep like crap. However, it does give me a lot more support than many of my other pillows and feels really good as a back support when my back is killing me. The difference is the material, instead of down or stuffing, this is actually made with buckwheat hulls and shredded foam making it a lot sturdier than most pillows. It's also adjustable- you can remove some of the filling to make it a better fit- I may do this if I go to use the pillow for my head/neck, but for now being so full is working really well. Even without removing some of the filling, I'm able to adjust the pillow easily because it moves around as you move the pillow which means I can make it really big at one end if I want to.

Another thing I really like is how the pillow doesn't smell like chemicals or plastic, it has a clean, fresh smell that's actually rather comforting. I found myself nuzzling into my pillow the other night, and then realized that doing so was a little weird. 

All in all, it's a great pillow and something I would absolutely recommend, especially if you're someone with back problems or other sleep issues where a firm pillow makes it more comfortable. I'm so mad at myself for leaving this pillow in the box for as long as I did!
