1. It felt like it took ages for my belly to 'pop'. During those in between months, when my pants no longer buttoned comfortably but I wasn't quite ready for maternity clothes either, the Ingrid & Isabel Bellaband really came in handy. It's perfectly stretchy material kept my pants snugly fitted during those awkward months and allowed me to continue wearing my pre-pregnancy clothing.
2. I was planning to buy one of those giant body pillows but I just couldn't bring myself to add it to my small, NYC apartment. Into my second trimester however, it became clear I needed something to help me sleep more comfortably through the night. As I'm always looking for a product with a dual purpose, I purchased the Aden & Anais Nursing Pillow. It works great for helping me sleep on my side and in a few months, I'll be able to use it for nursing.
3. I'm a bit obsessed with Zoe Organics Belly Oil. I use it every morning and haven't seen one stretch mark yet. More importantly, it is ultra moisturizing, helps ease an itchy baby bump, and smells absolutely divine.
