Here are a list of things EVERY Pregnant Mommy MUST haves:
Bra extender: A lifesaver AND a money saver.
Temperpedic Slippers: These are the most comfortable, well-made, supportive slippers for everyone.
Black "maternity" Leggings with stretch band: I recommend purchasing some from "A Pea in the Pod".
Black yoga pants/capris: You can wear these during and after pregnancy. The Gap and Old Navy ONLINE have great quality pants/capris. I repeat, ONLINE, because not all Gap and Old Navy stores carry maternity wear.
If you are an avid reader, here are some books that I thought were helpful: Baby 411: Purchase this book BEFORE you create your baby registry or purchase any baby items.
"The Contented Little Baby Book": This was recommended to me by 2 of our VIP baby nurses.
"Dude You're Going to be a Daddy" the book: My mother-in-law bought this for my husband the day we announced we were pregnant, and my husband started reading it immediately. This book is written by a man for men. My husband knew what was happening to me at various stages in my pregnancy before I did. I think it really empowered him to understand the past 9 months and it saved us from numerous arguments. Visit your local accupunturist and/or chiropractor. After just one visit, I walked and slept much more comfortably. If you are in the Los Angeles area, I prefer The Berlin Wellness Group, www.doctorberlin.com. If you are in the Central Coast area, I prefer www.drdavidmarquis.com
Get a prenatal Massage: Get at least two during your 9 months of pregnancy. Every mom deserves a little relaxation. Plus research shows your baby will benefit in multiple ways from a prenatal massage too!
