My Pregnancy Must-Haves

Today I wanted to share a few of my must haves throughout this pregnancy! It has been a bit of a rough ride, but I am so thankful for these products and the friends that pointed them out to me. Pregnancy can be hard, so anything that can make it a little easier is worth it in my opinion!

A good water bottle! For me, drinking water has been a struggle. I eventually found that a bottle with a straw made me change the way I was drinking and seemed to help cut down on the heartburn. Another necessity for me is something that can be thrown in my purse, and also something that will fit in the cup holders in my car. This bottle fits both of those requirements and has been working out great for me!
I wish I had tried Preggie Pop Drops sooner. They taste good, and although I had them as my morning sickness was ending, they helped, and many people have told me they helped when they were in the thick of it. Don't wait like I did, pull the trigger and buy these now! 

My sister in law got me this pregnancy pillow soon after I found out I was pregnant. I'm actually glad I had it early in my pregnancy because I was so nauseous at night, and it helped relieve pressure from my stomach and let me sleep. Side note- the hubby loves this one too!
Prenatal vitamins are obviously a must. I am no doctor so listen to what they say in regards to what you need, but I love this vitamin. I struggled for awhile to find a vitamin I could tolerate, that actually had everything I needed. (I could eat gummy vitamins all day but they're actually missing a few important vitamins!) This one was definitely a lifesaver for me. I take it at night, which was recommended by my doctor, to help me not feel nauseous. 
Joggers!!! This is probably my personal biggest must have. I have bought so many pairs since being pregnant. I just want loose clothing at all times. For the longest time I couldn't wear regular jeans or maternity jeans with the belly panel because of how tight they pushed on my belly. Even leggings were a no-go for awhile. These have been my saving grace!
Tums.. because heartburn sucks. Thankfully Tums have helped me and I haven't needed additional heartburn medications. These stay in my purse, and go literally everywhere with me. 
I've been using coconut oil for stretch marks. I first bought some kind of belly balm, but I didn't love it, and really the best way to prevent stretch marks is moisture. I don't know that this will really help, just because I think a lot of it has to do with genetics, but it can't hurt. 

These are some things that have been getting me by. Select any of the photos to purchase them too, and you can thank me later!

If you're pregnant, or have been, share in the comments some of your pregnancy must haves. I still have a couple months to go, so I'll be especially happy to hear any third trimester must haves!
