Happy Thursday Friends!
This is officially my last week home with sweet Davis before I go back to work Monday! As sad as I am to leave him and I ready to get back to work and in my routine!
Both of my pregnancies were COMPLETELY different but there were some things that helped me through both and I wanted to share those!
Y’all I am not saying this tummy rub comes from above but I have used it during both pregnancies and I did not get stretch marks! I started using this right when I found out I was pregnant! It I definitely a bit of a splurge but worth every penny!
Zach bought this pregnancy pillow for me when I was pregnant with Camden and it is a life saver to say the least! I really liked this one with the pillow going on both sides and it helped with my constant back and leg pain! I still have my pregnancy pillow and I am not sure I am ready to give it up yet because that is how comfortable and how amazing it is to sleep on!
I did not have to have a belly band when I was pregnant with Camden, however Davis was so low on my hips I felt like they were going to break at any moment! I found out about this band at my Doctor’s office. Some insurances will cover the bands if you buy them from your Doctor. I needed one asap so I bought one from a store. This particular one has a place to put a hot/cold pouch and can be turned around after delivery to help with us C-section Mommas!
Okay friends…some of you just gasped at the title of this book and the other few laughed (the ones who laughed are my people). There are so many parenting books out that tell you so many things are right and wrong, which at the end of the day you will figure it out because its your kid! However, EVERY MOM NEEDS TO READ THIS BOOK! My mom actually bought this for me and I have passed it on to other girlfriends. I literally laughed so hard reading it I snorted!
***Side note – if you are a working mom there is a really good chapter on how to drop your kid off at daycare with a fever…..***
Are you a new mom or experienced mom that found some holy grail pregnancy items?? If so please share! I do not have any pregnancy plans in my future (like ever) but I would love to pass them on to any mom-to-be!
