First of all- I cannot believe I’m pregnant again! It’s just crazy! And second- I’m shocked that the first trimester is already over. This pregnancy is going much faster than Gracie’s. I think it’s because I’m so busy with Gracie that moments are just flying by. Anyways, I wanted to share my favorite items I used during my first trimester. These are some great products that I used weekly, if not daily the last 12 weeks.
ONE+ Bella B Mama Soak. This stuff is awesome. I’m not a HUGE bath person, but when I am pregnant, I crave baths. I think this Bella B bath powder is actually created for after birth- to heal and soothe. But, it’s safe to use during pregnancy (or anytime actually!). It smells delicious because it contains extract of acai, green tea, and pomegranate. Definitely makes a normal bath feel like a trip to the spa.
TWO+ Psi Bands. While I haven’t had the worst morning sickness this pregnancy (thank God!). I have had occasional bouts of nausea. We also traveled a bit these 12 weeks so my Psi Bands were a MUST. Psi Bands are wrist bands that help relieve nausea due to morning sickness, traveling, and even chemotherapy. They work by using acupressure. I used them on my trip to New York and our several road trips! Lifesavers!
THREE+ Preggie Pop Drops. These ginger candies really helped when I would start to feel sick. My morning sickness only comes after I eat certain foods (like Mexican), so I always keep a few of these in my purse just in case something doesn’t sit right.
FOUR+ Little Nugget App. This app is amazing! There are over 450+ stickers and artwork to help you decorate and capture moments from your pregnancy as well as baby’s life! I use this app to draw on my bump photos as well as the ultrasound pics! It’s super fun + extremely easy to use! And you can print your photos from the app!
FIVE+ Bump Journal from Polka dot Print Shop. This book is so awesome. It’s designed to help you document the precious moments throughout your pregnancy. There are journal and photo pages to help you keep track of baby’s growth and pregnancy memories. I love the look of it too! I opted for more of a gender neutral color 🙂
There are my 5 favorites for the first trimester! I’ll be sharing more of my pregnancy favorites as my bump grows.
