When it comes to pregnancy every woman is different. Some of the things I like may turn another woman off and vice versa. I thought I would share some of my must have items that made my life a little bit easier…
I found these when I was pregnant with Emma and I had morning sickness/nausea from time to time. With this pregnancy my morning sickness was so severe that I was willing to try anything to help. I would usually keep these in my purse so when I felt sick I could eat one!
Betsey Johnson Be Mine Crossbody Leopard Satchel
Now from time to time I switch from carrying a bag to wearing a crossbody bag. Ever since I started carrying a purse I would go through periods were they would get on my nerves. And this time is no different, I am carrying so much extra weight on my body that I just didnt want to carry a purse too. But what woman can give up carrying a bag altogether…so I went to one of my favorites a crossbody bag! Even though I own a ton of crossbody bags I found a new one to add to my collection…many probably wouldve opted for a neutral bag to carry with everything.
But as the saying goes…
Since I am a SAHM I wanted to be comfortable at home and out when I had to run errands during the day. I had a pair of Yoga Pants that I would wear around the house and on weekends from Target. Since I started showing immediately they were the only thing I could fit and be comfortable. So I stocked up (I actually dont want to see another pair of yoga pants after I have these babies) when they would ran a sale. I will probably wear them home from the hospital because I can fit them and they arent tight.
Also a perk of these pants is they doubled as the PERFECT maternity pant. The part you usually fold down, I pulled up and it went over my belly just like a full panel maternity pant.
When I was pregnant with Emma I had a gift-card I had to use at Lane Bryant and I purchased some panties. And I have honestly been hooked ever since, these are some of the BEST panties I have ever had. I know the maternity store says they sale plus size panties, but if you are big like I am at the moment you need the real deal…I suggest you go to Lane Bryant! I went up a couple of sizes and they fit great around my belly!
New Balance Sneakers
While walking in the mall I had on a pair of flip flops and my feet were killing me. My husband and I stopped in a shoe store and I picked these out. Since being pregnant and being swollen, I couldnt fit any of my shoes. I am currently wearing a size 10 and these were the only cute sneakers I could find that I knew I would be able to wear the entire time. But aside from being cute, they are SOOOOOOO comfortable!
I must admit dressing for pregnancy the 1st time is hard. You have to basically buy a wardrobe for being pregnant. But the second time around if you keep those clothes from the first pregnancy and add a few odds and ends then it works out pretty good for you. I have lots of shirts from my first pregnancy that I wore in the beginning, now that I am going towards the end everything is little but thats okay because soon I will be back in my regular clothes (hopefully)!
These are a few of the things that have gotten me through this pregnancy. Do you have any items that helped make pregnancy easier for you? Or something you had to have (not cravings, but like material items)?
