For all you first time expecting mothers out there, things can be a little overwhelming. Your body is constantly changing and is a victim to a sea of raging hormones and there are those days that you just can’t seem to get comfortable, no matter what you do. And so, I have compiled a list of must-have items to see you through your pregnancy.
A body pillow
will help you get comfortable at night and help you get a good night’s sleep so you can stay healthy and refreshed throughout your pregnancy. Check out some awesome body pillows breasts!
A good body lotion
will do wonders in your ongoing battle against those stretch marks! A good lotion will provide your skin with the necessary moisture that it needs to remain elastic as your belly expands.
A comfortable cotton bra
will help keep you comfortable as your breasts grow and become more tender throughout the pregnancy. A cotton bra will give you the needed support, but without the discomfort of having an underwire. And when you’re ready for it, you can graduate from the cotton bra to a maternity bra.
A pregnancy journal
is a unique way to document all of your thoughts and experiences throughout your pregnancy. Writing in a journal is a great way to relieve stress, but it will also be an awesome keepsake from your pregnancy that you can look back on and share with your child in years to come.
A soothing scent
can really help ease your nausea. Find a perfume, cologne, candle, or what have you that you can sniff whenever you feel a wave of nausea coming on. The comforting fumes will help to relax your body and soothe your nausea.
are an absolute must! They will help you save money on a maternity wardrobe by allowing you to wear your normal pants unbuttoned, without anyone being the wiser! You’ll be able to be comfortable in your clothing without having to spend a fortune on a new wardrobe. Find yours here.
are yet another great (and delicious!) way to ease your nausea. The process of sucking on something like a lollipop increases your saliva production, which helps combat dry mouth, but it also activates your metabolism and digestive system, without having to eat anything that might cause you further discomfort. By having your digestive system and metabolism working gently as you suck on a lollipop, you nausea will slowly dissipate. Also, there are some awesome lollipops out there formulated specifically to ease morning sickness and nausea, check them out here.
Big, comfortable, slip-on shoes
will become your best friends in the final months of your pregnancy. It’s a great idea to buy a pair of shoes that are a little big so as to allow room for swollen and uncomfortable feet. It’s also a great idea to think about investing in shoes that you can simply slip right on so that you don’t have to worry about extra bending trying to tie up those laces or fastening straps.
With the help of these items, you are sure to have a blissful and comfortable pregnancy!
