I slept so well that night!

In that moment everything stood still and I knew I had the most precious tiny cargo on board! 

What is your favourite pregnancy moment?

My favourite pregnancy moment, with my second pregnancy, was the same as with my first! It was that little moment waiting to see a positive result appear on the oh so glamorous 'pee stick' and knowing that in the moment that it did it was my little secret! In that moment everything stood still and I knew I had the most precious tiny cargo on board! 

Your favorite bbhugme moment?

Without a doubt my favourite bbhugme moment was the first time I curled up with my new pillow! I slept so well that night! My only regret was that I hadn't had it sooner! 

Advice to other pregnant women?  

My biggest advice to other pregnant women would be to make time for themselves before the baby arrives. Whether it be five minutes extra in bed, a long hot bubble bath or a relaxing massage. When the little one arrives 'me time' disappears very quickly and life as you knew it changes forever. Enjoy a guilty pleasure as it may be a while before you get the chance to do it again!

Use your bbhugme as much as you can at night, because it truly makes a difference.

This baby was baby no 5 and we never find out the gender of our babies, except we found out the first time. I discovered bbhugme on a friend’s feed and knew I had to buy one. I never had a pregnancy pillow, but wish I would have found bbhugme years ago!

Favorite pregnancy moment:

My favorite pregnancy moment was telling our other children that we were expecting baby 5 and seeing the reaction of joy on their faces.

My favorite bbhugme moment:

I was taking it out of the box and seeing how truly amazing the quality, craftsmanship and comfort immediately upon opening it, every night sleeping with it, and now using it to breastfeed the baby, and for my older ones to use it now holding our new baby!

Advice to other pregnant women: 

bbhugme family

My advise for other pregnant women, is use your bbhugme as much as you can at night, because it truly makes a difference. Also, get plenty of sleep because newborn sleeping habits will have any mama, new or seasoned, very tired the first few months. Oh, and take plenty of pictures because time is truly fleeting right before your very eyes, and it so bittersweet as they get bigger each day that passes.

Best pregnancy moment: 

The day we got to see our son for the first time and when I felt his first kick, I was by myself at home, happy crying in bed. 

Best bbhugme moment: 

I got my bbhugme on my birthday this year, the best present for a long time.
That it can be used as massage pillow now during my pregnancy is perfect !
My partner has already a smaller space in our bed and all the lost hours of massage is now recovered.

Advice to other pregnant women:

My biggest challenge and weakness with being pregnant is just to listen to my body.

Buy a bbhugme the day you know that your pregnant, all uses of the pillow is incredible. Late nights with swollen legs and feet, sleepless nights is long gone and so relieving for both stomach and back. I had pelvic pain previously but not known to them last months!

My biggest challenge and weakness with being pregnant is just to listen to my body. All changes that comes week by week, both physically and mentally is hard to handle but also to relate to for me being pregnant for the first time.
As an active and sporty person is hard to just "take it easy", but your body needs extra care and your baby needs it to, already in the stomach Inhale & exhale and be proud of yourself and your body during this transformation!

When I upgraded from a regular maternity pillow to my bbhugme - complete joy!

Lucy is our bbhugme fan of the month from UK! She just had her baby boy Hector, only 4 weeks old! 

When my husband called through the day and I put him on speaker phone, baby would react, it was the nicest feeling
bbhugme breastfeeding.jpg

Best pregnancy moment. 

Getting to know my baby's personality. Even inside the womb, Hector's individual traits and qualities shone through. He'd let me know when he was content or uncomfy through kicks, jabs and tumbles. When my husband called through the day and I put him on speaker phone, baby would react, it was the nicest feeling. He had the hiccups a lot too which was the cutest! 

Best bbhugme moment

When I upgraded from a regular maternity pillow to my bbhugme - complete joy! I really suffered with backache during pregnancy and with breast feeding and lifting a newborn constantly that hasn't really let up since Hector made an appearance. The support and comfort it provides is top notch and being larger than regular pregnancy pillows makes a real difference too. I'm not planning on giving it up even once I stop nursing Hector!   

Also, treat every milestone moment as a victory, remember you’re making a mini human and you’re amazing!

Advice to other pregnant women

Even though you'll feel tired and uncomfortable at times, make the most of every pregnant minute - those opportunities to soak in the bath, hit the shops, go grab a coffee on your own - because when bubba is born you'll barely get to have a shower let alone get your nails done. Also, treat every milestone moment as a victory, remember you're making a mini human and you're amazing!

Our bbhugme fan of the month for January is the sweet, soon to be mama Alva from Sweden. Our bbhugme pregnancy pillow is with her everywhere!! :D

 

Best pregnancy moment: 

My best pregnant moment was when my boyfriend and I after eight months of waiting finally got to move into our new house. In the middle of all boxes and chaos we sat down in front of the warm and cosy fireplace with some take away.  We did not need to say much because we knew that we shared the same feeling right then and there. The feeling of building something great together. An indescribably longing for us to get to meet the little human growing inside and become a family. An overwhelming feeling of love. We looked at each other with gratitude. Thank you for giving me everything I want in life.

Do I need to say that ever since I got my bbhugme, we are inseparable.
— Alva

 

Best bbhugme moment: 

bbhugme sand pregnancy pillow alva

I remember talking to a dear friend of mine quite early into my pregnancy. She was advicing me what kind of pregnancy products were totally unnecessary to buy. I was already at this point suffering from back pain and I told her I had ordered a pillow as long as my own body that I hoped would help. "Well, it does not hurt to try..?", I said with a hopeful voice as the topic of the conversation was to not fall for all pregnancy products just because you are new to the whole experience.

Do I need to say that ever since I got my bbhugme, we are inseparable. It not only helped my back pain by supporting my pregnant body, but it also gave me back my sleep. We all know how everyday life becomes a struggle when nights are spent awake. And pregnancy is in some aspects already a struggle.

I am now in week 38 and my bbhugme is my constant companion. In the sofa, on the yoga mat, tied around my body at the dinner table and in our bed. In the beginning when the pillow was new my boyfriend joked about that he felt threatened by it, and that he thought I would leave him and run away with the bbhugme. Now that the jealousy has passed, I think he secretly borrows it when I'm away from home!




Advice to other women

I find it difficult to give advice on something I still find myself right in the middle of. But there are two things that I have found important during my pregnant experience. The first thing is to understand and accept that your body is going through a huge change. Therefore you need to get to know your pregnant body and its new needs to be able to take care of yourself and your baby inside. I found pregnancy yoga really helpful to get the tools and the time for myself to actually do this.


The other thing I believe is important is to not campare your pregnant experience to others. If there is one thing I have learned from books, podcast, blogs and instagram feeds is that all experiences differ enormously since we are all different individuals. There is no right or wrong, good or bad. My experience is unique, and so is yours and that, in itself, is powerful and amazing.

Sincerely, Alva Herdevall

We have chosen the beautiful super mama  Elle from UK as our bbhugme fan of the month for December. Read about her best pregnancy advice to other soon to be mamas!

Best pregnancy moment: 

Image: Elle Benton

Image: Elle Benton

Best pregnancy moment was when I was talking with my 2 and a half year old about the baby bump, wondering if he was really understanding what was happening and what that would mean for him. Up until now he'd been indifferent or ignored me when I talked about 'baby bump' but this time we were listening to Jean Genie by David Bowie (his favourite) and he said "my sisters name can be Genie!" And kissed the bump. So we named her Nova Jean (Jeanie) and he corrects anyone who calls her Nova!

Best bbhugme moment: 

The Bbhugme supports the baby’s body and holds her higher during feeds (great for my back and c section belly) and makes Oshie feel like he’s holding her “all by myself” which naturally being 3 is the way he wants to do it.

I have a few (I genuinely am a fan!) When I was pregnant I was really uncomfortable at night my hips and pelvis ached and I found it hard to sleep. I saw the Bbhugme cushion on Instagram first and then read up on it and thought I'd give a go because no sleep+ pregnancy+ toddler is miserable. The first night I used it I slept like a baby. When Nova was born I used the cushion like a baby nest and had it on my lap . To support my arms and baby during feeding and to help Oshie hold his sister which he wants to do all of the time at the moment! The Bbhugme supports the baby's body and holds her higher during feeds (great for my back and c section belly) and makes Oshie feel like he's holding her "all by myself" which naturally being 3 is the way he wants to do it.

Advice to pregnant women: 

 I think there is a culture of denial when it comes to pregnancy. Everyone tells you you should be 'glowing' or that you will have amazing energy or not feel any different. no one wants to admit if they're not loving it because that makes them feel less of a ' natural' ....but the truth is that everyone experiences it differently and it's also normal to feel exhausted, sick, anxious and uncomfortable and have any number of weird symptoms that are not at all fun! And that's ok too!

It’s ok to admit you’re not loving it and ask for help when you need it

It's ok to admit you're not loving it and ask for help when you need it. Your body is undergoing some serious changes and your hormones are all over the place. It's Ok to not feel Ok! That will change when your baby is born. In parenting follow your own instinct...by that I mean there is not one set rule book that works for every baby and every mother. There are many different right ways of parenting you can pick and choose the 'rules' that make the most sense to you.

Our bbhugme fan of the month for November is the beautiful Tanya from Netherlands! Here is what she has to say about bbhugme! 

 

Best pregnancy moment: 

With 28 weeks we had a 3D echo made, It's absolutely amazing to see your little baby so detailed already. We had the best sonographer who explained every little detail to us, I'm pretty sure our little girl will never have such a detailed scan of here body and vital organs again. 

Dreaming I had to return my bbhugme, was terrible, but waking up realizing it was mine to keep was the best!

Dreaming I had to return my bbhugme, was terrible, but waking up realizing it was mine to keep was the best! I love the fact that you can make it as firm as you prefer by moving the pebbles and that the pillow is straight. My old one had a bend in it, a disaster when turning around in the middle of the night, with bbhugme it goes smooth, the fabric is very soft on your skin and it's long enough to support your whole body. I'm looking forward breastfeeding with it! 

 

Advice to other pregnant women: 

invest in the good well designed stuff, you might pay a little bit more but the investment pays itself back in the longrun!

There is a lot of stuff out there you really do not need during pregnancy or when your baby is born, invest in the good well designed stuff, you might pay a little bit more but the investment pays itself back in the longrun! 

 

Warm regards
Tanya van Esveld

We have tons of great bbhugme fans and we  love to share their amazing stories. Our amazing fan Akaysha has shared her storie with us! 

It’s like the baby is reaching out to you and saying “Here I am mommy!” It’s such a magical moment.

Best pregnancy moment:

It's so hard to pinpoint a specific "best" pregnancy moment, it's all so incredible. I'm on my third pregnancy and each one of them has been so uniquely special and miraculous.

If I absolutely had to pick my favorite pregnancy moment though it would be feeling that first really hard kick. The one that you are absolutely 100% positive was the baby making its presence know. You feel a lot of flutters and movements before this point but that first hard kick is so full of life. It's like the baby is reaching out to you and saying "Here I am mommy!" It's such a magical moment. 

Best bbhugme moment:

 

I'm pretty sure every moment spent snuggling bbhugme is the best moment ever. A huge added bonus is being able to nap anywhere! Even the couch.

Image by Akaysha.

Image by Akaysha.

However one specific moment would be the first night that it arrived. I hadn't slept good since the very beginning of my pregnancy. Having round ligament and sciatica pain meant that sleep was very rare for me. On top of all of this our beloved dog had passed away that day. It was such a painful, emotional day for us all that when I finally crawled into bed the bbhugme pillow took away all of the weight. Literally and metaphorically. It supported my belly and eased all of my aches and pains. When I hugged it I felt so comforted and safe. I remember audibly sighing and finally sleeping all the way through the night.

Advice to other pregnant women:

 

So many pieces of advice come to mind but my main piece would be to take time and make space for yourself. It's so easy to get caught up in everything that needs done especially if you have other children. Pregnancy is so sacred that you really need to try and take some time for yourself to absorb and bask in the glory of the life you are growing. Whether that's taking a nap or a long bath, going out for a pedicure or lunch by yourself, or maybe even splurging a little and buying yourself this pillow. Whatever it is do it. You deserve all of it and more.

 

Best of Wishes

Our bbhugme fan of the month for October is the beautiful soon to be mama Camilla from Denmark! Below you can read about her new best friend! 

Best Pregnancy moment: 

My best pregnancy moment was the first time i felt my babyboy kick. That was a wonderful feeling and something totally special! I'm gonna miss all his kicks and activity inside my belly when he arrives. But i can't wait to put my little babyboy on the bbhugme pillow. We will be using the pillow for some baby photos when he arrives!

Best bbhugme moment:

It is hard to find one best bbhugme moment, because after I got the pillow, I sleep so much better at night, and I am way more comfortable sitting on the couch with the bbhugme around me. Now I won't go anywhere without it.!! Thanks to your bbhugme bag, I can take it everywhere, when we go visit family and stay the night. 

But if I should say one best moment, it would be a day when we came home from at long drive and I felt a lot of pain in my stomach, I laid down on the couch with the bbhugme pillow and a blanket, holding my boyfriends hand, and everything just got a little bit better. The pillow did its job and supported me the right places. I'm in love with it, I just have to say!! It is my new best friend!

Advice to other pregnant women:

bbhugme belly sand vanilla

My advice to other pregnant women is that if you haven't already gotten the bbhugme pillow, get it! It's worth it!! It is comfortable, flexible and you can use it for so many things. Both before and after the baby is born! Mine was a gift from some family, and I can't believe why I didn't bought it earlier in my pregnancy.

If you already have it or waiting to receive it, make sure to hide it from your boyfriend or husband because he will wanna try to make it his. My boyfriend said that he might even buy his own! That's how good the bbhugme pillow is! 

Best regards

We have chosen the fabulous Michelle from Denmark as our bbhugme fan this month! Michelle has awnsered a few questions about her experience with bbhugme! 

Best pregnancy memory: 

The best memory from my pregnancy was the first time I felt my son Albert kicking, it is a feeling that is hard to describe, it feels great to feel the sign of life from him .. When I started to notice life, than i realized that i am soon about to be a mother.  

Best bbhugme memory: 

bbhugme denmark fan dusty pink

My best memory with bbhugme must be the first night. Unfortunately I got the pillow late in my pregnancy, I wish I had gotten it before. I have pelvic girdle pain s and bbhugme helped me really well. I've never slept as amazing as the first night with bbhugme. bbhugme has been both tested by me, my boyfriend and our dog and we are all 3 huge fan of this amazing pillo, and i  am really looking forward to be using it as a nursing pillow when my little son come into the world in September. 

 

Advice to other pregnant women:

Enjoy everyday, although some days can be tough days so try to enjoy it. Think that something unique out of what only you and your partner can create, it's really romantic despite the nausea, the extra kilos and pregnancy genes .. It is important to listen to your body.

I think that all pregnant women should own a bbhugme. :)

Lovely Sarah from UK has been chosen as our fan of the month in july. Sarah also owns the amazing online store Buddy and Bear. Here is what she has written about bbhugme. 

Best pregnancy moment: 

When you see that line on the test. Your life totally changes in that one tiny moment! I also love getting all the little bits washed and ready towards the end. It's all very surreal but so exciting.

Best bbhugme moment: 

The first night I used it. I'd been struggling with sleep for so long, using pillows to prop me up. I couldn't believe I'd not got one sooner as I slept so peacefully! The bbhug me is like a best friend - so supportive and kind. 

Advice to other pregnant women: 

Go easy on yourself. It's temping to do too much and not realise how tired you'll get. Especially second or third time round when you've got other children to look after! Oh and buy a bbhugme as soon as you find out ;)

"This pillow is everything that it promises to be, and more!"

Our bbhugme fan of the month in June is Phoebe from UK. She has written about her experience with bbhugme and answered three questions that we asked! 

Picture by Pheobe

Picture by Pheobe

After seeing a few other pregnant women on Instagram rave about their bbhugme pillows, and weeks of restless and uncomfortable sleep I decided to treat myself, I'm annoyed now I didn't do it sooner! This pillow is everything that it promises to be, and more! My toddler immediately decided it was for him and falls asleep cuddling the opposite side to me, as well as playing with it during the day, apparently it's a log for walking/balancing on - which is currently the best game ever!

I'm at a sewing machine a lot for work so I find my bbhugme wrapped around my middle to be lovely and supportive and it stops me slouching forward over my machine! It's basically an all round wonder product and I'm looking forward to its many more uses once our baby arrives too!

 Best pregnancy moment.

I think my favourite part of pregnancy is the first time you really feel your baby kick, it makes everything seem that much more realand knowing soon that they will respond to your touch/certain sounds, it's amazing.

Felix is far too young to really understand, but it totally melts my heart when he cuddles my tummy and kisses the baby too!

 Best bbhugme moment.

Picture by Phoebe

Picture by Phoebe

Cuddling up with my toddler Felix (who has already tried to claim the pillow as his own) and being able to properly support myself and my bump while he lays on me. I worry about him putting too much pressure on my bump but don't want to deny him any cuddles so with the bbhugme I can easily shift his weight onto that and still have him feel really close as the pillow moulds around us and holds him in place.

Advice to other pregnant women.

Picture by Phoebe

Picture by Phoebe

Try to allow yourself some down time, it's easier said than done with a toddler running around too but things will be that much more hectic with a newborn in the mix too I'm sure. My mum takes Felix for a few hours one night a week and that gives me the time to work on Mamma & Mini orders in peace or just catch up with some rubbish TV and paint my nails. Keep on doing the things that make you, you and accept all the help that is offered when you need it!

I recommend you to buy bbhugme, yes it's worth it. Buy also an extra sleeve. I used bbhugme from week 18 and i still use it. My best bbhugme moment was when i was at the hospital about to give birth to the twins. I used bbhugme as back support when i was giving birth.
