I initially got this pillow to use during bi-weekly massage therapy appointments once I was no longer able to lie on my stomach. It works great for that because the little wedge cradles my belly and the back wedge helps me feel supported (and not like I'm going to fall off the massage table#. My therapist says it does not interfere with her work at all.
I also took this on a multi-city trip which involved staying in hotels for 10 nights. I was 28 weeks and really starting to get big, but I still was waking up on my back #in pain and, of course, out of the recommended position). This pillow is not only compact enough to take it where you need to go, but it really keeps you from rolling over. I know one reviewer cited that as a "con," but for me it was a "pro." It kept me on my left side. Occasionally, I would roll over, but since the pillows weren't really ideal for that, I would find my way back to the left. (FYI, I am a larger person [size XL] and it fits me fine.)
Finally, the price is unbeatable. If you can only purchase one thing to help with sleeping, this is a great deal. I could also see using the wedges, which can be separated entirely via the Velcro, to get comfortable in chairs, or in the car, although I haven't tried that.
