Let’s be real, being pregnant is hard. From aches and pains to pregnancy brain and even watching your body grow and change it can be hard and exhausting. Needless to say, anything that helps make pregnancy a little easier is basically a God sent. I decided to compile some of my favorite products that I have used thus far in my pregnancy that have made my life so much easier!
Okay, this is for real one of my favorite thing! When my belly started growing I was quickly growing out of all of my favorite pants. At first I just wore skirts
but now with cold weather approaching quickly, I’ve been needing to wear pants again. I tried some maternity pants but I was never happy with them. Then my sweet sister-in-law gave me her pant extender and let me tell you WHAT A GAME CHANGER!! I can still wear all of my favorite pants without squishing my guts out and the best part is no one notices!
Everyone told me one of the hardest parts about being pregnant is sleeping. I luckily haven’t struggled with this too much however I really think it’s because I started using this wonderful pregnancy wedge early on. I like to sleep on my side so this was perfect for me as soon as my belly started growing! Recently I have been dealing with some back issues and my chiropractor has encouraged me to sleep on my back as much as possible without being completely flat (confusing I know) so I have been wedging this behind my shoulder so that I am not completely flat but mostly on my back (if that makes any sense). Basically this is the best pillow and you can use it for almost anything!
As soon as my belly started getting bigger it started itching constantly and it was so annoying! It got to the point where I was scratching my stomach so much I started getting sores (sorry if TMI) and then my sister in law yet again came to the rescue and gifted me with some of this miracle lotion! I now put this on morning and night and my stomach has not itched at all. I can’t honestly say if there is a correlation to this either but, I also havent gotten any stretch marks yet!
I was struggling a little bit with my changing body. None of my clothes fit, I wasn’t used to seeing my body this way and with my hormones raging it was hard for me for a bit. I started looking for maternity clothes but found that everything was frumpy or not really my style. Enter Pink Blush Maternity! I first just got one sweater from them and it was adorable, stylish, flattering and maternity friendly. Then I got a simple t-shirt and it was adorable, stylish, flattering, comfortable, soft, perfect in every way AND maternity friendly! Needless to say, I am a HUGE fan of Pink Blush now!

I have been taking L-theanine for years and when I got pregnant I found out it is safe for pregnancy! I have always struggled with anxiety and now thanks to pregnancy hormones it has gotten a little worse. I obviously wouldn’t ever take anything that would be harmful or dangerous for my baby. L-theanine is a natural option for anxiety and it is something that really helped me while not pregnant and now really helps me (safely) while pregnant!
These are just a few products that I have found and loved so I hope that maybe they can help you and you might love them too! If you have any products you love help a mama out and share them with me!!
