I am by no means a pregnancy expert, but here are my absolute must-haves for the first half of pregnancy! And I could actually live without all of them but #7.
1. aiden and anais mum and bub lotion
|This lotion is amazing! Not greasy, lightweight, and one of the only perfume scents that doesn't make me sick!|
2. old navy maternity jeans
|My go-to jeans. Comfy and hard to tell they're maternity if you can't see the top! Perfect with boots for fall.|
3. jeggings and leggings (dont judge)
they don't squeeze your belly, and i feel like i'm wearing pj's all the time!
4. big sweaters
an obvious must - especially when you're in that "i just look like i am hiding the evidence of too many donuts and not a baby" phase
5. heating pad
purchased this only last week and wish i would've had it much sooner. my back gets pretty tired after a 12 hour shift at work, and this definitely does the trick!
6. a bathroom within 50 feet
|Because honestly, between vomiting and peeing every 5 minutes, it really comes in handy|
7. a good husband
this one is absolutely key. he's my best friend, my love, my sanity. he already has all the amazing qualities a daddy should have. he holds my hair back when i vomit, encourages me when i'm down, and tells me what a great mom i'm going to be when i'm scared to death i won't know what i'm doing. i'm not sure where me or baby e would be without him.
