Make Pregnancy Easier with These Affordable Maternity Must-Haves
Health and Beauty Maternity Essentials
I love Preggie Pop Drops for fighting off mild nausea and that general 1st trimester yuckiness!
Burt’s Bees Leg and Foot Creme does amazing things for swollen legs and feet!
I use Burt’s Bees Mama Bee Belly Butter to help fight against stretch marks and itchiness when the belly starts to grow. I love that it is a natural product and that it is unscented!
Premama Prenatal MultiVitamin Drink Mix is one of my favorite new discoveries! Sometimes I just can’t stomach swallowing a horse pill sized prenatal vitamin or chewing up a sweet prenatal vitamin gummy (especially in the first trimester!). I love this prenatal vitamin drink mix because it has all the essential vitamins we need, but is a flavorless powder that you can mix in water, juice, or your favorite smoothie!
Premama Prenatal Energy Booster Drink Supplement is another one of my new favorite finds! The first trimester seriously wipes me out and I can use all the help I can get. This powdered drink supplement tastes great and I love that it gives me a natural energy boost, without caffeine!
This Anti-Nausea Acupressure Wrist Band is a great, natural way to keep the nausea at bay during the first trimester and throughout your pregnancy.
If you are trying to eat healthfully when you are eating for 2, this book The Whole 9 Months: Pregnancy Nutrition Guide is a great reference!
Since pregnant women need to drink more water, I find it helpful to keep a cute water bottle nearby! This glass bottle with a silicone sleeve is adorable and I love that it is BPA free!
Affordable Maternity Underthings
Maternity Layering Tanks are my go-tos. I love that I can wear them under a cardigan or a jean jacket and have an instant outfit.
Honestly, you may not need special maternity underwear, but for ultimate comfort, I highly recommend them! Whether you prefer Maternity Boy Shorts, Maternity Fold-Over Panties, or Under the Bump Hipsters there is definitely something for everyone!
You can avoid maternity pants as long as possible with these Belly Bands. They are definitely a must-have for the first couple trimesters!
Maternity Sleep Bras are another great thing to have during your pregnancy. Comfiness is key and these don’t disappoint!
Maternity Support and Shaping Shorts are a must-have for me! They hold you in and provide a little extra support for the growing belly!
This Pregnancy Support Belly Brace is a necessity for anyone who has to stand on their feet for a long time throughout the day. It’s not the cutest thing, but it is definitely supports the back and belly! If you are pregnant with multiples, this would be essential!
Outgrowing your bra? You don’t have to buy a new one just yet, because these Bra Extenders can prolong the life of your current bras!
Make Pregnancy Easier (and More Comfortable!) with These Comfort Essentials
I love this Boppy Pregnancy Wedge Pillow for it’s versatility! You can use it as a back support if you have a desk job or just to make your favorite chair more comfortable. You can also use it to support your belly, back, or knees when you sleep on your side! I’m usually a tummy sleeper, so I love anything that makes side sleeping more comfortable for me!
Maternity Yoga Leggings–need I say more?
Maternity Comfy Lounge Pants– because when you’re pregnant, you can never ever have too many comfy lounge pants!
These Fun Non-Skid Socks are great to pack in your hospital bag and also to wear around the house. Pregnancy throws off your balance, so non-skid socks are so nice to have to avoid slips and falls!
I hope you enjoyed all my affordable maternity essentials! Hopefully they do help you make your pregnancy just a little bit easier! If you are interested in breastfeeding or pumping once your little one arrives, you can find my pumping and breastfeeding essentials right here!
