New mattress - new neck pain, help!

First night on the new mattress and I feel horrible - do I need a topper or a new pillow or ??? We replaced our sagging mushy tempurpedic with a new latex mattress yesterday and while it felt awesome when we first went to bed over the course of the night I went from comfy to miserable. I woke up exhuasted, with a headache and tight neck and shoulders. My husband slept great and he is the one with serious back pain, so I want to make this bed work for us.

I'm not sure how to alleviate my pain - I'd buy a memory foam topper except part of our dissatisfaction with the tempur was that it slept too hot. Since the pain isn't in my back, maybe it's not the mattress but the mattress combined with my pillow (also an aging tempur)? Any suggestions on what to try tonight? We're both side, side/stomach sleepers, I'm also 3 months pregnant.
