My Pregnancy Must Haves

Aside from my first pregnancy must haves post, here are some additional ones that I have needed more-so in the later months of pregnancy.

Panty liners: The Kotex U brand is my favorite. 

Bra upgrade: The bras that fit me during 1st and 2nd trimester no longer fit me in the 3rd trimester. A few months ago I would never have guessed I would be going up another cup size. I was lucky to snatch good quality bras at the Victoria's Secret semiannual sale though. 

Maternity Leggings: So comfy. I work at a university, so I wasn't about to let myself wear sweatpants to work (even though it crossed my mind many, many times). So I wore maternity tights, leggings, and maternity leggings. I didn't want to stretch out any of my jeans so I didn't even try to squeeze into them after I gained my first ten pounds. The maternity leggings were by far my favorite. 

Body pillow: This is a no brainer. I've never heard of someone "not needing one" during pregnancy. I got a body pillow cover to match our bed set. 

Maternity tops and belts: In the first few months my belly started showing, those belts made a world of difference. They were the difference between looking like a borderline overweight girl and having a cute belly bump. 

Maternity workout top: I bought this at 7 months pregnant and I love it. 

What To Expect While You're Expecting book: This book along with a couple pregnancy iPhone apps really helped me know what was going on with my body and the baby at all times. I was able to keep my calm and have a fearless pregnancy. 

Massager: This isn't the exact one I have, but it's nice to have Adam give me random back massages at night. I don't have any significant back pains now, but I'm guessing I will be happy I have this during labor.
