Nearing the home stretch of my pregnancy and I can hardly believe it. It’s been a rollercoaster ride, but there were several pregnancy products I could count on to make my journey more comfortable + even fun! I wanted to list out some of my favorite pregnancy products that I LOVE during my entire pregnancy!
Pregnancy Products I Love:
Hatch Belly Mask– These belly masks are so fun, and not too mention super cute. I got a whole pack of them in my second trimester to do throughout my pregnancy (you can even use them after). They are cooling, and left my skin super soft. I loved adding these mask into my self-care routine.
Hatch Belly Oil– This is, by far, my favorite belly oil. It’s less greasy feeling, and dries much quicker than others I’ve tried. I actually enjoyed the light scent of this belly oil as well. It’s not too overpowering, but almost calming in a way. I didn’t just use this on the belly though, it went on the boobs, butt and thighs. I used this belly oil as a part of my nighttime routine.
Hatch Wellness Oils– If you haven’t noticed yet, I have LOVED the brand Hatch for pregnancy products. I also have three of their wellness oil blends. I use the relax wellness blend every night before bed, the rescue blend is great for settling the nausea, and the renew blend can be used as a pick me up (’cause exhaustion is REAL). I love that these are mama safe.
Hatch Easy Bra– One last thing from Hatch, my boobs grew and grew and grew. None of my old bras fit. Honestly, I just wanted something comfortable because they were often sore, especially in the beginning. I got the Hatch Easy Bra, and it was so comfy, and basically the only thing I ever wore…or no bra at all.
Mama Mio Tummy Rub Butter: I actually enjoy using and trying different products. There were some nights I wanted to use a lotion on my belly, and some that I wanted to use an oil, or just went all in and put both on. In my third trimester, I was reaching for the Mama Mio Tummy Rub Butter, as well as the Pregnancy Boob Tube– to me they felt nourishing and relaxing on the dry stretched skin.
Blanqi Leggings + Biker Shorts– Blanqi leggings were by far my fave. They were soft and comfy. I also liked the support in the belly area. I have both the leggings and the biker shorts. I pretty much wear the biker shorts everyday though now that we have warmer weather. Side note: I recommend hand washing, or doing a gentle wash to keep the softness.
Pregnancy Pillow– A MUST. I used to think and say that it wasn’t necessary, but nearing the end of my pregnancy, I will have to say, my pregnancy pillow has been my BFF. It came with me to the couch for when we watch our nightly shows or movies, I could fold it in half, put it behind my back and create a comfy space for working, and most importantly it cradled me in all the right places I needed to feel comfy. This is the one I have-it’s under $40.
Belly Band– Back pain is NO JOKE in pregnancy. I even had terrible sciatica pain that brought me to tears, and to the point of buying a belly band. It’s not cute, but it’s worth it. Mine is under $15, you can find it HERE.
The Bump App- LOVE this app. It’s been a great resource during my pregnancy. Has helpful articles, tips, and has all the fun facts about baby and your growing body.
A BIG Water Bottle: I used this pink Yeti one and I still use it almost everyday. It’s big enough to hold and keep cold a lot of water which is need in pregnancy!
Pregnancy Clothing: I always said “oh I’ll never buy or wear maternity clothing”-I’m here to prove myself wrong. Sometimes, maternity clothing just fits and feels better on the body. I loved shopping budget friendly finds at boohoo– like I got this dress for $13. I also really loved every piece I got from Pinkblush. They have the sweetest dresses and just feel and wear really well with a growing bump. Bumpbiddy also has affordable maternity pieces that I LOVED. Isabella Oliver is another great maternity comfy-I wore this beautiful dress from them. Petal & Pup has a bump-friendly selection of non-maternity clothing, that work well with a bump!
Getting through the first trimester (and beyond) was tough, but here’s a great post for how I survived those first couple of months: HERE
