I mean what better time in your life to soak up all the pampering you can get!
From comfy and adorable maternity clothes to luxurious lotions, your top priorities during pregnancy should include being comfortable, healthy, and happy.
So be sure to keep you and baby happy and healthy with these pregnancy must-haves you need now!
Clothing and Comfort
Buying a whole new wardrobe is going to be essential as your body grows. Those high-rise mom jeans aren’t going to fit like they used to!
Don’t forget about your comfort around the house and sleeping, which gets to be more challenging as your pregnancy progresses.
So make sure you are as comfortable (and fashionable) as possible for the next nine months with these maternity clothing and comfort must-haves.
1. Leachco Snoogle Total Body Pillow
With your pregnancy, back pain, heartburn and vaginal pain may be something you might end up happening to you as your bellow grows.
I know for me, with my twin pregnancy, pain was something I had to control as my babies grew!
And this Leachco Snoogle body pillow saved me from having a terrible night!
2. A Belly Band
Now there are several different types of belly bands.
This particular belly band is great if you can still (sort of) fit into your favorite shirts but they seem to have only shrunk in length.
It provides light, breathable support while still making that shirt look cute with a layered effect. They also work great to hide the fact that you can’t button your jeans any longer.
3. Maternity Leggings
If you plan on working out during your pregnancy (as well you should be) or leggings are just an everyday part of your style, then maternity leggings should be at the top of your list for maternity clothing.
Regular leggings are not equipped to handle your growing belly and will shift around to all the wrong places (trust me on this one!).
Maternity leggings are great because they give your belly enough room to grow, are comfortable enough to wear every day (cuz comfort it key), and are also great post-partum, until you can fit back into those high-waisted mom jeans.
4. Maternity Undies
Oh, the joys of your growing body.
Your butt gets bigger, your belly gets bigger, nothing fits anymore!
Nice, stretchy maternity undies are great when you just need a comfortable pair of underwear. These maternity undies have a criss-cross front section so you don’t have to worry about outgrowing them or pinching in places it shouldn’t be.
5. Waist Band Extender
It’s such a bummer when you can’t fit into your favorite jeans anymore!
With a waist band extender, you can wear your favorite pre-prego jeans for a little bit longer. Available in sizes ranging from 6-11 inches, there will be plenty of room to grow.
Also, you can use the belly band to hide the extender and still look cute.
6. Maternity and Nursing Robe
