seems to get bigger, including your feet!
I am currently obsessing over Tory Burch flats, especially the
“Eddie” flats. I keep them in
my purse at all times. While pregnant,
your feet will swell up, and you may even experience back pain and other random
pains throughout your body. Wearing
comfy shoes will help ease some of the discomfort you may have. Also loving these.
important during pregnancy. Having
swollen and/or red tender gums that
bleed is pretty common. Consistent
flossing is important because your teeth and gums are more vulnerable to plaque
buildup and infection. Eeeek!
your pre-preggo jeans or pants for a while longer. I am currently 7 months and still purchasing
non-maternity bottoms. I know this is
wishful thinking but I am hoping the Tummy Tube will hold me over until the end
because maternity jeans are freakin’ expensive!!! Another great option: The BeBand from Target.
fave! I wear them around the house, to
the store, on my walks, etc. I just wear
these bad boys everywhere! I’m sure I
will even wear these post pregnancy as you are still bloated for a while after
giving birth. So go invest in a pair of
comfy yoga pants. I promise you won’t be
disappointed. My favorite yoga pants are from Gap.
survive without my boyfriend (aka maternity pillow)! My husband has officially been replaced by
this sucker. I cuddle with my pillow and
wrap my legs around it for back support.
Even my dog loves this thing. If
I’m not using it then you can most likely find Rambo all snuggled up with it. Before I had this pillow I could not get a
good night’s sleep. I have scoliosis so
pregnancy has added some extra strain on my back. This pillow has helped with some of my back
pain and I now get a good 7 to 8 hours of sleep cuddling with my new
boyfriend. I’ve even heard this is great
post pregnancy and can be used as a nursing pillow. The maternity pillow I am currently using is by Dreamgenii and can be found at A Pea in The Pod.

Drinking water is extremely important during pregnancy. You need to keep your body hydrated. Drinking enough water will prevent
dehydration which would otherwise lead to headaches, nausea, cramps, and
dizziness. In the third trimester,
drinking water is especially important because dehydration can cause contractions
which can trigger preterm labor.
Yikes! Maybe you should go refill
your glass now. 😉
these creams really work but it wouldn’t hurt to give them a try, right? I have used this stuff religiously for the
past three months, and so far….. NO STRETCH MARKS! I have heard the main cause of stretch marks is
genetics, but I still love anything that can possibly help prevent the onset of
these creepy little lines. I am currently using Mustela’s stretch mark cream which can be found at A Pea in A Pod.
purchased this book immediately after I found out I was preggers. The content of this book ranges from
budgeting to birth and is full of helpful information for mommies and daddies
to be. It is great to know what is
normal and what is not. Who knew that your
body would be put through so many crazy experiences while you’re pregnant? Geesh!
