You’re pregnant! For some this is exciting, for some this is scary- there is a lot going on in your body! No matter how you experience it, a baby is getting bigger by the day.
Prenatals- I took New Chapter Perfect Prenatal, would highly recommend
Tummy Lotion- Burts Bees Mama Bee, stretch marks are thing, I applied this to my stomach once a day, and did not get them! Comes in a lotion and an oil.B
Belly Armor Blanket– My friend told me about the blanket which is said to provide a shield for your womb from EMFs, or radiation from devices such as cell phones, laptops, ipads, etc. I used it over my tummy any time I was using a device.
Tummy Support- Bella Band, this thing was an absolute lifesaver!! When describing it to my friend, she asked if it was like a sports bra for your stomach, and that is exactly how I would describe it
Travel- Compression Socks. If you are traveling on an airplane, no matter what the distance, you will definitely want to wear these to avoid swelling in your legs.
Books- I asked my OBGYN for recommended books, and the ACOG Your Pregnancy and Childbirth was the rec. A good handbook and point of reference, but nothing I did not necessarily already know or had heard. A friend recommended Expecting Better, and I thought it was a good quick read with good and real information.
Beauty Products- Be careful what you read on the internet! Ban this, ban that. Below are the products that I use pregnant or not pregnant, all are paraben FREE
Bodywash- Dr Bronners, Almond is my favorite!Burts Bees
Facewash- Dove Soap and Burts Bees Royal Jelly
Lotion- Burts Bees, I like Cocoa and Cupuacu Butter
