7 Pregnancy Must Haves I Couldn’t Live Without

Congratulations! You are about to embark on a 9-month journey that is full of joy and excitement. It will be the fastest 9 months of your life. I am so beyond incredibly blessed to have had an easy pregnancy. I pray the same for you and your new bundle of joy.

Your body goes through changes and you will want to be prepared to have your best pregnancy. This list is personal to me and I am sharing these pregnancy essentials that worked for me in turn that you can benefit from them too.

Here are the 7 pregnancy essentials that got me through the 9 months.


1. Burt’s Bees Baby Bee Belly Butter

Found on Amazon

Hands down the best pregnancy product I used! I was introduced to this product by my sister-in-law who had a friend use it throughout her entire pregnancy and didn’t get any stretch marks. I used up the jar she gave me at the beginning of my pregnancy and I didn’t have to replenish until about the 8th month. Going into the ninth month and I have no stretch marks. Definitely worth $12!


2. Full Body Pregnancy Pillow

Found on Amazon

I ordered this pillow around week 20 and I used it to create a “Pillow Palace”. Pillow Palace was the use of multiple pillows to keep me from rolling. As your stomach begins to grow, sleeping can begin to become uncomfortable. For me, not being able to sleep on my stomach or back was a hard transition. This pillow was great to keep me from rolling over on to my back or stomach.


3. Maternity Belly Band

These 7 pregnancy must haves are THE BEST! I'm so happy I found these AMAZING pregnancy essentials! Whenever I become pregnant, I can reference this incredible article.

The above photo was taken at our gender reveal party when we found out we were having a baby girl! Obviously, I was overjoyed at the fact we were having a little princess. You can see my white belly band which just looks like a long tank top. Fortunately, for my pregnancy, I was able to get away with just buying the belly band two pack.  I didn’t need to buy any maternity pants. For $9.00 a piece, they will extend the life of your current pants and save you money!


4. Vita Fusion Prenatals

Found on Amazon

There are so many different brands and types of prenatal vitamins out there.  Depending if you were diagnosed with anything during your pregnancy it might lead you to a certain type of prenatal. For example, before I got pregnant I had a history of having high iron and I had to take a vitamin without iron. During pregnancy, I became anemic and had to find a prenatal with iron in it.


5. Stainless Steel Water Bottle

Found at Amazon

Being pregnant you need to drink A LOT of water and keep hydrated! This bottle has been my lifesaver! The autoseal feature is my personal favorite. It can spill over and nothing will spill out! It keeps my water cold all day with the insulated double walls.


6. Sneakers

Found on Amazon

If you have not bought yourself a good, comfortable pair of sneakers in a while, this is a pregnancy must have! You will want to be doing A LOT of walking while pregnant. I walked 10,000 steps a day while pregnant. It is a great way to maintain your fitness and it will help all the way up to labor. When you start to enter recovery mode, your body will thank you for walking so much and help you bounce back.


7. Decaf Coffee

Found at Amazon

If you don’t know by now, I LOVE coffee. When I got pregnant, I wanted to be able to still feed my coffee addiction while keeping my baby healthy. This is why I switched to decaf coffee. The first and second trimester my body wanted nothing to do with coffee. Every time I had it my stomach would turn. Decaf was a necessity.

There you have it! 7 pregnancy must-have items whether it is your first, second, or third pregnancy. Again, these pregnancy items were what worked for me. Every pregnancy is different and hopefully, these items work for you as well.
