I’ve settled on not naming this post as Pregnancy essentials as none of these things are truly essential to pregnancy; they are just quite handy and have turned into pregnancy favorites of myself. Additionally I have also shot and uploaded a video for my YouTube channel, so if you want to have a little watch, you can discover it below:
Orange Juice and Spatone:
I am not certain if that’s totally a craving as such but I truly have a thing for Freshly squeezed orange juice amidst pregnancy – It was also like this when I was pregnant with Ethan. Whenever I have it, I feel rejuvenated like I have been filled with energy. Its hilarious as just after a few weeks after I had Ethan, I quit buying it that lot (If at all) so I am certain that my adoration for orange juice is pregnancy related. I attempt to add Spatone to my orange juice if I remember to, to those who do not know of Spatone – it is an iron rich water so it is known to aid with iron levels, which amid pregnancy particularly in the third trimester can get a little low.
Boppy Pregnancy Wedge:
I am one of those individuals who just need to sleep with something in the middle of their legs – despite of the pregnancy. I cannot believe how uncomfortable it is to have my knee caps touching so Id generally use any pillow to diminish my discomfort. I recently saw this little gem though in the face of a pregnancy wedge from Boppy and it has turned into my new best pal! It’s the ideal size for what I use it for and it can furthermore be used to prop up the bump if I am not too cozy. It’s also more pleasant on the eye than the pillow I used previously.
Stretch Mark Creams and Oils:
I don’t have a specific favorite when it descends to stretch mark creams or oils. I am aware that people recommend and say that Bio Oil is great and I have utilized it amidst this pregnancy( Its not pictured because I ran out and already have trashed the empty bottle) yet I am not certain if any of the things I used emerge out as my favorites. I think that’s may be because I still do have a couple of stretch marks despite utilizing the products that are intended to end them. Withstanding the fact that I still have stretch marks, I like using creams and oils that are intended to moisturize the skin on my extending stomach and who knows may be my stretch marks could have been much worse if I didn’t use them.
Cath Kidston Diary:
You are most likely pondering why I have included my diary in this article, it is a little odd one as it’s not in fact pregnancy related and I am completely true – I am not an organized diary user normally, but I seem to turn into an organized diary sorta gal while I am pregnant. When I initially got to know of my pregnancy, I went ahead and documented how far along I’d be ever week ahead of time. I also make use of it to stay on track with my scan dates, obstetrician appointments and any injections or vaccines I am scheduled to go through. I also utilize it to stay up to speed on my shifts at work and other normal going-on’s in our lives. I was exactly like this when I was pregnant with my first son but the same week that he was born I quit using my diary, haha! So my little advancement in the area of organizing is surely a pregnancy thing.
Maternity Nightie from the Essential One:
Ah! I adore a nice nightie! For me, there is nothing superior than being cuddled up all nice and cozy in my sleepwear, a pair of slippers and my robe – its ecstasy and even better during pregnancy. The nightie is new and I got it from The Essential One, it is by all means an accurate maternity nightie and is truly beautiful on. Even Adam said that it looked really beautiful. I will be bringing it with me in my hospital bag and though I would prefer not to mess it up, I think I may put it on during labour as its just truly cozy and nice to wear ( and is undoubtedly amazing).
I love slippers and I am addicted to them – I wear them all the time. I adore them because they are so cozy and warm and not even the warm heat can isolate me from my slippers! The above are from Tesco and are the ones that I will be bringing along with myself in my hospital bag as being bare backed they are much tinier compared to my normal boot slippers so will occupy less space in the bag. They are featured here as a pregnancy favorite as when you are pregnant it’s all about being cozy.
Pregnancy ++ application
I really adore this application and I am a loyal user. I used it all along through my pregnancy with Ethan too. Its known as Pregnancy ++ or there is also a different version (Which I think is the free version though don’t quote me) known as Pregnancy +. It’s such a great application for pregnancy; there are numerous elements on it infact it is filled with each and everything regarding pregnancy. My favorite features are the week after week updates, 3D and scan pictures of the baby the exact week as yours look like, infant size guide, infant name list, pregnancy timeline and bump development pictures. Every Monday I sit and read the week by week pregnancy update to Adam and we get so thrilled – I adore it!
Paracetamol and Pregnacare:
I don’t take pain relief medicine too often unless I completely need to yet I needed to incorporate paracetamol as it is the single most pain relief you can ingest while you are expecting. I have utilized it a couple of times throughout my pregnancy to help with my back pain and headaches so it is featured on my list. On a different note, I have been taking the Pregnacare vitamin every day during my pregnancy. Its prescribed by obstetrician as being the best vitamins to take while you are expecting so just like when it was with Ethan – it’s been my go to pregnancy vitamin.
