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.
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.
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.
Tums for acid reflux – I keep these by my bed to help with acid reflux at night.

New Chapter Prenatals
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!
Leg Massager Air Compression Leg Wraps
Ahhh I get restless leg sooo bad and this makes it so much better! I wish I had known about this before with my other pregnancies.
White Dress or Robe
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
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.
