My 8 Maternity Must-Haves

This blog is sponsored by New Chapter x Amazon

Since this is my third pregnancy and I have had things I use without a doubt every pregnancy, every day..I thought I would share some of my personal maternity must haves! So here are some things I use and would recommend for pregnancy.

1

Heating Pad

Amazon

A heat pad and acupressure pad for my back! I have a bad back already and during pregnancy it gets even worse. I always use the heat pad at night when I am laying in bed working or when my back gets really bad. The acupressure pad I love to just lay on when I want to relax.

Maternity Spanx

Amazon

I have talked about maternity spanx before, but they are definitely a must when you are pregnant! They just make you feel all snug and smooth in tighter dresses.

New Chapter Prenatals

Amazon

I have mentioned these before in this post but obviously prenatals are a must and I like that these you swallow because sometimes when something has a taste and I have to take it daily it starts to make me nauseous. I cut these in half and take them every morning before the gym.

The other two vitamins I love from New Chapter that I’ve mentioned previously are the Every Woman’s One Daily Multi Vitamins, and the Bone Strength Take Care Multi Vitamins. I take these daily as well, so be sure to check them out!

White Dress or Robe

BHLDN

I love to have a white flowy dress or robe like this one for maternity and newborn pics. With both kids I have both a maternity and newborn pic in a white dress and they are always my favorite.

Body Butter or Lotion

Amazon

I don’t really do anything for stretch marks except putting on lotion before bed (most days) but I do kinda believe that stretch marks are mostly genetic. I mostly love to have a good lotion because it helps my stomach not feel so itchy. Does anyone else get so itchy when pregnant?! Here are a couple that i’m loving : Cetaphil Moisturizing Cream & Love Beauty and Planet Shea Butter & Sandalwood Body Lotion

8. Spray Tan (Pregnancy Safe)

A pregnancy safe spray tan – it feels so good to be a little more tan when pregnant! Just makes ya feel good.

My Morning Routine

Health & Wellness

I am sure you guys have heard the saying that “the secret of your success lies in your daily routine.” I fully believe that is true and when I don’t have good habits I don’t get as much done and notice a difference. Our daily routine at home is always a little different depending what projects we have going on but for the most part a lot of it always stays the same. One really consistent part of our day is our mornings.

  1. Hi Amber, this is such a great and helpful post! Thanks for sharing. I just found out that I’m pregnant with my first baby (10 weeks already 😱!!) and was wondering if you could share some tips and recommendation on self tan (not sure what are the ingredients I should avoid and would love to hear what are some options you like), as well as tips when it comes to coloring/bleaching your hair. I’ve always heard that women shouldn’t color their hair when pregnant and I’m a natural blonde but would love to do some highlights since my hair gets darker when I don’t get any sun exposure (as it is the case now with the winter coming). Thank you!!!

  2. Which acupuncture pad do you use? I know you mentioned it a while ago, but I can’t find it and I want to purchase it for someone for Christmas!

  3. Great post I’m going to be trying a few of these things! What was the link did the spray tan you use it’s flawless??
