Hello All! If you’re reading this blog, thanks. You’re awesome. Today I’ll be discussing all of the pregnancy essentials I have found very comforting or necessary while being pregnant. Number one on my list would be a pregnancy pillow. I don’t think I’d be able to sleep without mine. It supports my neck, head, hips, legs and belly. It’s like sleeping in a cozy hug all night. They are amazing! There are so many different types out there but I got mine on Amazon, where I basically get everything.
Next would be a bump support pillow. My pregnancy pillow is shaped like a “C” so when I flip to the side that is open my bump doesn’t feel as supported so I throw my handy dandy bump support pillow under it. I travel with both of those pillows. They have become a part of me lol. My husband says that sometimes it feel like a barricade between us and he can’t wait until I can sleep with just a normal pillow again so we can snuggle more. He’s so cute. 🙂
I also would say a must-have is Motherhood maternity leggings. They are by far my favorite. I have like 5 black pairs and 2 navy and get so sad when none of clean. Another crucial item is slip on comfortable walking shoes. I found a pair I love on amazon (shocker) by the brand “Lancrop.” They are called “Women’s Comfortable Walking Shoes – Lightweight Mesh Slip On Athletic Sneakers.” They have been awesome for me! They are comfy all day long. They also come in 26 colors but mine are black/white. Next on my list of essentials is slippers. Just any pair. Your feet get swollen and slippers are so nice for around the house.
Next up is my personal favorite… loose comfy pajamas. I am all about comfort. They are so necessary with an expanding body and bump. Also the book, ‘What To Expect When You’re Expecting,’ is a great resource to have on deck. Another one is tummy butter. My belly gets so itchy so it feels so much better and moisturized when I use some. Last but not least is pregnancy safe products such as lotions, shower items, cleaners, etc. I like to know what is in the products I’m using around my home and on my skin. Some of my favorite brands are Native, Mrs. Meyer’s, Noodle & Boo and Hello Bello.
Another last tip I guess is just try not to google too much. Google is great is sometimes with pregnancy it can really worry you more than you need. You already have enough on your plate! I hope this post was helpful or at least somewhat fun to read. Thank you and I hope you have a wonderful rest of your day!
