As any expectant woman can tell you, pregnancy is a new, fun, and exciting time of anticipation and change. There’s also a plethora of annoying stuff they don’t tell you. Dietary restrictions abound, your body is LITERALLY taken over by a another human being, and then next person to tell me to sleep now is going to get hospitalized (unless they have a solution for me that allows me to continue to sleep through my 5 trips to the bathroom throughout the night). Through the pregnancies I’ve found a few products that deserve recognition and are 1000% worth their weight in gold. Check them out:

For the love of god please buy yourself one really nice pair of maternity jeans. I learned this the hard way during my first pregnancy.

Round 2: I made a bonfire with my maternity pants of pregnancy past and went out and splurged on one really nice pair of maternity jeans. All you need is one really. Depending on how much time you plan to spend in them you can wash them when you get home at night or during a legging day. You’ll feel good about your investment because you wear them all the time and you won’t be cursing to yourself every time you sit down or bend over
A time will come when bending over to mess with shoe buckles and zippers just won’t be in the cards. A comfy pair of shoes that don’t require any hands to get on or off are a creature comfort you’ll be glad you have when flip flops or rain boots won’t do the trick.
