Pregnancy Must Haves

 As my pregnancy is coming to an end.. I thought I would share with you all of my favorite things that have made the last 9 months a little easier on me.

1. San Pellegrino Sparkling Beverages -  I am not a soda drinker, but this was my go to when I was feeling nauseous...or jealous of my husband enjoying a nice cold beer and I couldn' did the trick. 

2. Maxi skirts- heaven sent pregnancy wardrobe addition in my opinion, especially the ones that are stretchy and fold down to accommodate that growing belly. I haven't had to buy any maternity bottoms thanks to these... paired with a comfy tank happens to be my daily get up as of lately.

3. Bio oil & Mama Bee - both of these saved my skin! I know they say stretch marks are hereditary which meant I should have gotten some since my mom has....but nope! not one - knock on wood they stay away for the remaining month of my pregnancy. 

4. Oceans Mom DHA & Vitamin Code prenatals- I have taken both of these through my whole pregnancy with Sienna as well as when I nursed/pumped. Plan on doing the same this time. I feel like the quality is much better than most prenatals out there, they are pricy and require 3 pills a day which can get annoying especially when nausea strikes but I wouldn't feel good about taking any other kinds.

5. Belly band - another pregnancy wardrobe must for this mama....all those shorts that fit your tush but you just cant button them anymore....well this does the trick. I still wear every pair of pre pregnancy shorts thanks to this thing.

6. Glass water bottle Sounds silly but here is my reasoning... it is recommended that you drink seven bazillion cups of water each day while pregnant. If you have a water bottle or tumbler that you LOVE.. you will be so much more likely to keep filling it up rather than just using a glass.  Maybe its a psychological thing... but I definitely have been drinking more water since getting this bottle. Also helps to have something with a lid that won't spill so you can tuck it in your bed or couch cushions for the days that you are huge & immobile. I have dropped it a million times and it hasn't broken on me.

7. Shea Moisture products- I don't know where these have been all my life, but ever since I discovered this line I have been obsessed and buying every single product they make for myself and my babes. This lotion was meant to be for baby....but I once I smelled it, I was hooked....a lot of 'good for you' products don't smell very good. This line has no yucky ingredients and is absolutely amazing. I literally cant get enough.

*If you would like to know where I got any of these products, 
I'll be happy to share - so just ask :)
