Probably the most worn item of clothing I've had throughout being preggers...so comfy and yet still staying somewhat stylish, right? (don't worry, I would wear a longer shirt over them) Some people prefer the maternity pants with the elastic waistband...not me. Give me the high panel/over the belly leggings any day of the week!
Bella B Tummy Honey Butter
(thanks to my girl Delane for recommending this stuff!)
Knock on wood...but so far, either genes or this tummy butter have prevented me from getting any stretch marks on my belly. It smells good and has an almost gritty texture that at least makes me feel like it's doing something right. I've used it from beginning to end!
(no that's not me modeling for you)
Thanks to this amazing little invention, I've been able to get some precious z's throughout my pregnancy-- even now when I am quite large. It's a body pillow amped up, and although not the most romantic item (it creates quite the barrier between Nick and I each night), it.is.a.dream. Pun intended.
Have I had any strange cravings? Nope. Just ice cream. And what is strange about that? Nothing! What's not to love? Creamy deliciousness that I indulge myself in, probably 5-6 nights per week. You think I'm joking but I'm not. I justify it with the fact that usually it will be a light version like the Dryers Slow Churned, but who needs justification really when it is so darn good?
Hands down best thing I have done/experienced during pregnancy. I've always loved yoga and initially going to a pre-natal class is a little different because you aren't sweating it out and getting the intense workout that you'd be used to with Bikram or Vinyasa yoga. However, the benefits are incredible. Learning about our bodies, practicing movements to help through labor, stretching, sharing stories...these classes have been the thing that has made me feel most prepared for child birth. Love them!
