I still can’t believe that I am in my last week of pregnancy with the twins! This pregnancy has definitely been bittersweet. As much as I have loved all of the kicks, I can’t wait to meet our two new blessings and find out if they are boys, girls or one of each! I have so many friends that have recently announced their pregnancy and have asked me what they’ll need so I thought it would be perfect to post about my pregnancy must-haves. Keep scrolling for a list of my favorite things to have while pregnant.
- Forte Prenatal Kit
I was obsessed with this kit when I found it! I love that it has a prenatal vitamin, anti-nausea pill and even comes complete with meal ideas, and a whole body exercise program for you to do during all three trimesters of pregnancy. With so many prenatal vitamins on the market, I had no idea where to start but Forte’s prenatal is complete with all of the key vitamins and minerals needed during pregnancy from Vitamin A which is crucial for healthy fetal development to Zinc which is not only needed for normal fetal growth but also for milk production during lactation. I felt so much better this pregnancy because I actually worked out almost until my scheduled delivery date. I never had to worry about which exercises were safe to do either because I felt like I had my very own personal trainer walking me through a complete upper body, lower body and cardio regimen. I also love that every Forté product is built upon a foundation of scientific research and is supported by a board of physicians.
- Bundle Organics Pregnancy Wellness Organic Rooibos Tea
This is my all-time favorite tea to help wind-down during pregnancy. It is made with all organic, OB-GYN approved ingredients and helps expectant mothers to relax, helps ease nausea and tastes delicious.
- Belly Bandit Thighs Disguise
There’s nothing like a few undergarments to make you feel your best while your body is undergoing so many changes. Belly Bandit is known for having the essential maternity must-haves but one of the items that I lived in during my pregnancy was the Thighs Disguise. Not only does it provide support but it is super comfortable and smooths everything out whenever you are wearing anything form-fitting. It is also made from a Wonderweave fabric and keeps stretch mark lotions on your skin and off your clothes.
- Belly Bandit Belly Boost
I also loved the Belly Boost by Belly Bandit. Not only does it provides belly support, but it improves weight distribution and even helps with lower back pain.
- Ugg Scuffette Slipper
It’s quite crazy how swollen your feet and ankles can get during pregnancy. I am obsessed with these slippers and how comfortable they are. I slip them on the minute I get home and even packed them in my hospital bag.
- Glow Organics Belly Butter
I am obsessed with this organic belly butter massage lotion and have used it throughout both of my pregnancies. It is made with grapeseed oil, sweet almond oil and a blend of shea and cocoa butters so it goes on super smooth without being greasy. It is great for improving skin elasticity and suppleness and helps prevent stretch marks during pregnancy. It is also fragrance-free for mamas that are sensitive to smell.
