I’ve rounded up some of my current favorites, including a fun stretchy tee (and you know I love a good graphic tee!) & some under-belly support shapewear!
I have been using Mustela Stretch Mark Cream since I got pregnant with Harper & so far it has not let me down. If nothing else, it helps with itchy belly skin too, especially in the dry winter months! I discovered Earth Mama Angel Baby at the end of my pregnancy with Eloise, they have an amazing selection of pregnancy essentials (and post-partum as well!) to help with heartburn, stretch marks & even morning sickness. The ginger & grapefruit body wash is my favorite & I love that it is safe to use with toddlers in the shower as well! Gummy prenatals are my must must must have recommendation for anyone who despises taking vitamins, I have hated most of the others that I have used, even ones that weren’t so bad on the stomach, I still felt like I could taste them all day. These are gentle on the stomach & actually taste so good! One thing to note with these is that they do not contain Iron, so if you have issues with anemia while pregnant (like I do) you may need to ask your doctor about an iron supplement as well. And if you experience a dry, stuffy nose & chapped lips while pregnant, a good humidifier will change that & you’ll never look back. Just make sure to use it in an enclosed room by shutting your bedroom door at night, so it can work to it’s fullest potential. This is especially helpful during the winter.
Of course, every pregnancy is different, my pregnancy with Eloise was the hardest & so far, this one has been the easiest. Knock on all the wood. Whew! I know that was a ton of information, but I remember being a first time mom-to-be & wanting all the recommendations that I could get! So I hope that you find this helpful & that somewhere along the line, something here can make your nine months of baby growing just a little bit easier! 😉
