This past month the weather has been hot in NYC and as I round out my ninth month of pregnancy, these are the must-have items that have helped me get by.
1. I take a water bottle with me every time I leave the house these days. It's really important to stay hydrated during pregnancy, especially in the heat of summer and having a cute bottle to tote around has encouraged me to keep drinking. I love the water bottles from bkr which come in so many gorgeous colors and now with initials!
2. As soon as the humidity strikes my feet become swollen and painful. Keeping my feet propped up definitely helps but city life has been hard on them with all the walking I do. I received this Burt's Bees Mama Bee Leg & Foot Creme as a gift at my baby shower and it works wonders! The peppermint and rosemary ingredients are soothing and cooling which is just what my feet need at the end of the day.
3. I have unfortunately dealt with a lot of lower back pain this past month and the only thing that seems to help is applying heat. I have just been using a regular old heat pad but how cute is this cover by Orange & Coco? There are many styles on their Etsy site along with other items such as pacifier clips and teething toys.
