Pregnancy Must Haves

Everyone’s experience of being pregnant is different, but there are some things that I just could not live without.

First Trimester

    • Pregnancy Tea – Pink Stork Tea– By far the best thing that helped ease my nausea.
    • Prenatal Vitamins – Are a must have for you AND your baby.
    • Journal / Planner – I loved writing to our son about my cravings and doctors appointments.
    • Saltine Crackers!
    • Book/TV Shows – I spent my entire first trimester sicker than a dog. This is a good time for you to read that book that has been setting on your night stand or your favorite TV shows. (Rachael Ray and Dog the Bounty Hunter were my jam).

Second Trimester

  • Maternity Clothes – I loved shopping at Old Navy, H&M, Motherhood Maternity and Goodwill for my maternity clothes. ( I also recommend buying maxi dresses that you can wear after you have your baby).
  • Coconut Oil – Instead of purchasing a high end butter cream, I rubbed coconut oil on my body every day and only had one stretch mark!
  • Walking Shoes – My shoe size went up 1/2inch while pregnant. I recommend a good pair of shoes for days you feel like getting out and taking a walk.

Third Trimester

  • Maternity Pillow – My biggest regret was not purchasing one of these bad boys. I was very uncomfortable at night when I was sleeping.
  • doTERRA Essential Oils – Helped calm nerves and relieve stress.

Everyone’s pregnancy is going to differ and what may work for me may not work for you. However, these were things I would recommend to anyone who is pregnant.

I would love to hear what your favorite must haves were while pregnant!
