Pregnancy Must-Haves

When you’re expecting, at least for me, I was at an all time anxiety high. “Is this normal?” “Am I gaining too much weight?!” “How much fried chicken is too much?” So, anything that could make my life easier, I was all about it. I wanted to share what worked for me because making a person is taxing.

Pregnancy Pillow

Yes, get one. I still use mine and it was a life saver, especially towards the end when you’re massive and over it. I got this one because I wanted to feel like I was sleeping in a hole and I needed to be able to flip from side to side without moving the pillow over every time. There’s also another one that’s shaped like a “C” that my friends have used and loved, but the “U” shaped was my jam. Side note: you have to buy the pillow case separately. I slept on the actual pillow for at least a month before I broke down and ordered the pillowcase. Saving y’all some heartache here, go ahead and order both at the same time.

Belly/Body Oil

I was getting so big so fast, I was in a panic about stretch marks. This Rosehip oil came highly recommended and it worked wonders. Not one stretch mark! Compared to some of the other creams and oils on the market, this was easy on the budget as well. I got mine for $14.95 on Amazon.

Belly Belt

It’s as fun and sexy as it sounds. BUT it really saved my back. I’m a short person and my gigantic belly freaked havoc on my back, knees, shoulders, etc. This belt helped me get things done.

Prenatal Gummy Vitamins

Have you ever smelled a prenatal? Have you ever smelled a garbage can? Same thing. In order to get the needed vitamins into my body, it had to come via a sweet, candy-like vehicle. In came gummy prenatal! I used these.

Epsom Salt

I took a bath every night because my body constantly hurt. I love the smell of eucalyptus so this one was my favorite.

Apart from Chick-Fil-A and Freddy’s, these products helped get me through my entire pregnancy. Hopefully they bring some relief for you as well. Stay strong, Mama!

Cheers, Lana
