3 Pregnancy Must Haves

I have two months to go before I get to hold my daughter!  I can't believe how fast it's coming!

I will not be a true pregnancy aficionado until the end, but I do have three items that have made my life easier so far.

1) Boppy Prenatal Sleep Wedge  Many of my friends have recommended a full body pillow, but our bed is just too small for anything that extensive.  So, for a while, I artfully arranged and rearranged standard pillows in a futile attempt at a good nights rest. I stumbled on this little wedge, and decided to give it a try.  It is my new favorite possession. It's less than $20, but it is worth a million to me.

2) Reusable Water Bottle  I am constantly thirsty. This isn't helpful with the constant peeing that pregnancy causes, but that's another blog post entirely.  In early pregnancy I had a few very intense thirst attacks.  I know that sounds nuts, but I felt like I would turn to dust if I didn't get water quickly.  I learned my lesson.  Now, I don't leave home without my water bottle.

3) Maternity Leggings  I have two basic black pairs that I have completely abused. Leggings are comfortable.  Over the belly leggings stay up.  They can be worn during the day, for exercise, or as pajamas.  The only downfall is that you have to buy short dresses or tunic tops to accompany leggings.  The whole rule about covering your bum when wearing leggings still applies when you are pregnant.  It's not a free pass to look crazy.

Happy Monday!


  1. You'll want that water bottle when you are nursing too! :)

    I have some leggings but I never wear them. :P I don't really have anything to wear over the top of them.

  2. Oh, man! I don't know how you've survived! I can wear regular pants for a little while, but I can't wait to get them off. But, even not pregnant, I'd live in PJs if I could. :)
