Pregnancy Must Haves!

When I first found out I was pregnant with twins I went right to to order books and then over to to start pinning things to help me along this pregnancy. The list below are a few items I came across when pregnancy blog surfing and ended up purchasing or receiving as a gift. This list is not only for mom's to multiples though, all the items are great for a singleton pregnancy too!

1. Pregnancy Pillow!
I have this one, here. It is AMAZING! I usually like to sleep on my stomach, and all momma's know that doing so is a big no, no. This pillow helped me stay on my side and when turned the other way (pillow in the front rather then behind you) really helps support my belly. The only negative thing I have to say about this pillow is that it's huge. We have a king size bed and I feel like I'm taking up 3/4 of the bed when I use to pillow. 

2. Old Navy Maternity Clothing

They are always having great sales and have the best prices for their clothing. If you shop online their selection is large compared to other sites I came across. The wonderful thing I also came to find out? The maternity clothing still look great while NOT pregnant. (I will try to update the photo as soon as they start a new sale.)

3. A Good Pregnancy Book

No matter what every mom has questions regarding pregnancy, birth, and what to do now that baby is here! The books I have above are the ones I really enjoyed reading. The Juggling Twins book for this pregnancy and the Pregnancy, Childbirth, and the Newborn: A Complete Guide for when I first got pregnant with my son. They both answered the questions that I had and gave me the information needed.

4. Water Bottle
Momma's have to stay hydrated, not only during pregnancy but after labor too. I take my bottle with me everywhere. I also have an extra in my car that I keep filled in case I forget mine or need extra water. 

5. Lotion
Some how I always end up pregnant in the winter, so my skin gets dried out fast. Applying lotion daily helps keep it hydrated and stops the itching. You can use any brand that you want, they even have pregnancy specific kinds. 

So what were some must have items during your pregnancy? Feel free to share and I will add them to the list!
