Pelvic pressure can be *really* awful, some of you say you never experienced it and man, that's great for you, not everyone does, but I really think this would be something I'd look into if I had an issue with it in my next pregnancy! Also, I have to say, number 11 is *so* expensive, but I bet it's worth EVERY penny. Definitely something I'd have loved after baby #1. The Halo mattress topper, (as a stomach sleeper,) is going to be something I buy, I already showed it to my husband. With our first one, the last three months I was pregnant I maybe got 45 minutes a night of solid sleep. This seems like something that would be an absolute GODSEND.

From what we've been told by actual users of the products, the V2 Supporter is a vastly superior alternative to the groin bands depicted in this article. Otherwise, great read!

I've never heard of most of these and I wouldn't have used them anyways. I'm pretty happy to be able to say that as for the awful looking crotch belt thingy, I never felt like all my insides were about to fall out of my who-ha. Honestly, I think that paragraph would have really freaked me out had I never been pregnant before and read this. So ladies with no children, not every woman feels as though "everything is going to fall out the bottom" {shivers}. Also, I never felt the desire to start wearing disposable granny panties either - thank god! Regular undies - usually cheekies or boyshorts and occasionally even a thong worked just as well.

I've had three children, and the perineal massage oil is the ONLY one of these I ever heard of ( in the context of  my midwife telling me that olive oil works just as well.)  However did I survive? LOL. The electrical stimulator patches for contractions would have been good to try though. Interestng how everthing is an opportunity to sell something now.

I have 2 kids and have never heard of most of these. Actually, the belly support band is the only thing I knew about.

That TENS machine is interesting. Wonder if it actually works.

I probably would have tried the crotch support with my first. She rode soooo low and dropped way ahead of time that it just felt like i had a 90 pound weight about to burst through at any minute. My son was high though, right till birth and i had virtually no pelvic pressure.
