Since I have a couple hours while Sawyer's napping to blog, I have been wanting to post about some of the things that made my pregnancy much more comfortable and actually a pretty enjoyable experience. They may sound strange to non-pregnant people but for my friends who are expecting you might appreciate it.
|This was my gold, went through 6 bottles and NO STRETCH MARKS!!! |
I know it has a lot to do with genetics but it is worth a shot!
|Target's Boyfriend T's fit my bump perfectly and |
are super cheap and comfy. Bonus you can wear them after.
|My Pregnancy Wedge pillow was a great help when my bump |
got big enough it was uncomfortable to sleep on my side.
|Citrus fruit tasted so good during my pregnancy, |
and it helped keep me from getting sick!
|I did Ozark Fitness' Body Pump up until Week 36 and I never had back pain. |
I also think it helped with the actually "work" of labor, pushing is the hardest thing
I have ever done. If you just modify your weights it really helps keep you strong!
|The Babybump App is great, I was able to track mine and Sawyer's progress, appointments, pics and they post weekly and daily tips.|
It was my favorite of all the apps I downloaded
|I had my Tervis Tumbler in hand non-stop. It helped keep me |
hydrated (no swelling), they never sweet and stay cold/hot all day!
|My mom bought me the book "You Being Pregnant" before she even knew |
I was pregnant because she knows I love Dr. Oz. It takes a different approach
than other pregnancy books he explains things in ways that just seem to make sense.
|I tend to forget to take my vitamins but then I found these gummy versions. |
I actually looked forward to taking them before I went to bed, they are yummy!
Target even has a off-brand version called "Up and Up" and it is around half the price.
|Sleeping was really my only struggle during pregnancy so I created a |
pillow fort to prop me up. I used anywhere from 4-5 pillows
every night and I am normally a tummy sleeper or a one-pillow gal.
|I love my heels but they are not always suitable for a pregnant body, Toms |
were a great back up and still cute. I even wore them in the hospital as my slippers.
|I walked the whole pregnancy on the days I didn't do Body Pump and when |
I couldn't do Pump anymore, the treadmill and I were very close friends. I had walking
dates with my preggers friend Melanie and it made our hour-long workouts fly by!
