First Trimester Must Haves

Hi friends!

Since I’ve been pregnant 3 times in 3 years, I think I have earned some points and a lot expertise in the field, HA! Many of you are so sweet to ask advice on your new pregnancies, so I thought I would put everything in one spot here 🙂 This list will be for the first trimester, and I will go into the second and third trimesters in the next week!

First, CONGRATS MAMA! I am so excited for you to take this unforgettable journey. Well, you’ll probably forget all the hard stuff when you’re craving your next pregnancy 🙂

Products I recommend to get:

 

1. Pink Stork has the BEST and effective morning sickness products. I love the creator, and I love the whole mission! Get them below:

Morning Sickness Tea

Morning Sickness Candy

Morning Sickness Relief Bars

 

2.  Prenatal Vitamins: Again I am a huge fan of Pink Stork. I love the liquid prenatal Vitamins, so I don’t have to swallow a massive pill daily. I take a probiotic supplement also with it. Both linked below:

Liquid Prenatals

3. Image result for peppermint young livingPeppermint everything! I LOVED diffusing peppermint oil and drinking peppermint tea during my first trimester. I personally love Young Living oils, let me know if you need anything oils. I can order for you!

 

4. A good OBGYN/Midwife and Doula! Recommendations are ALWAYS a must. Find out your friends experiences with their doctors and pick the best choice for you! Arizona locals: LOVE my doula HelloBabyAZ!

 

5. Image result for coconut oilCoconut Oil for your belly, start now! I honestly, mostly just use coconut oil! I am very religious about applying it. I apply it to my belly and breast 3x a day. A MUST!

 

6. Screen Shot 2018-06-05 at 7.37.13 PM.pngA good supportive bra: since your boobies may already be feeling the journey! I love a good sports bra, something that is forgiving, yet supportive. If you are wanting to start your nursing bra collection early, this is my current fave!
