Pregnancy Products- Must Haves and Passes

 Another Monday! How did we get here again? 

As of Friday I am 28 weeks pregnant and officially in my third trimester! Today I thought I would share the pregnancy products I have tried throughout my pregnancy and whether they are must haves or if I would have passed on them. 

The Snoogle: Must Have!

Up until maybe four weeks ago I would have said this was a pass. I honestly did not find the snoogle comfortable and couldn't find a way that it would work for me. Well, my belly grew and now I cannot sleep without it. I would definitely recommend a snoogle if you are pregnant and having trouble sleeping. I don't use it as pictured but kind of lay wrapped around it. I will caution you that it is quite crowded in our queen size bed right now, and hopefully someday we will have a king size bed but for now with the snoogle it does get quite crowded!

Nursing Bras- Must Have! (But the right one!)

I have bought four nursing bras so far and this pack of three from Amazon are the ones I currently am using and loving! I do hate that they have the removable padding in the cup so I am constantly having to fix them after they come out of the dryer, but they fit nicely and are very comfortable. 
I originally purchased this bra from Target and I absolutely hate it. It felt uncomfortable and too small even though I purchased what should have been the correct size. Maybe my sizing has changed too much during pregnancy and I should've purchased a larger size but I was not a fan. Also, the Amazon bras are much cheaper!

Burts Bees Mama Belly Butter- Okay To Pass

So this belly butter is nice enough, but I'm not sure it has made any difference. I prefer lotion that comes in better scents and this belly butter isn't anything special. I also read that stretch marks are genetic, so nothing can truly prevent them. I don't know that I would purchase this again in the future. I also have sample sizes of different belly butters but this tub is so large I'm not sure when I will get a chance to try them. If I do, I will let you know what I think.

Pregnancy Tops- It Depends!

I originally purchased these Isabel Maternity v-neck t-shirts in three different colors and although one is now stained I still wear the other two regularly. I find them to not be long enough and would prefer something a little longer, but I do think they work for the awkward second trimester when you are growing but aren't too big yet. 

I received this mama bunny t-shirt as a gift and have been wearing it quite a bit. It's not made like other maternity t-shirts but is stretchy and has been comfortable so far. 

I have purchased a few tank tops but haven't gotten the chance to wear them yet. I do think having tank tops during a summer pregnancy is crucial and I will be getting more use out of these over the next three months. 

Nausea Drops- Must Have!

My favorite nausea drops were these Munchkin ones that I purchased twice off of Amazon. They helped me tremendously during the first trimester. I did not like these ones by Pink Stork and ended up donating them. If you like peppermint though you might really like them, I just couldn't stomach them with my nausea. 

Stitch Fix- Must Have

Well maybe not a must have...but a nice to have! I love to order from Stitch Fix on a regular basis, but when I mentioned I was pregnant they sent me a ton of items that have been great! A cardigan, leggings, and a dress were my favorites but they have so many items I'm sure if I ordered another stitch I would get more great items. 

That's all I can think of at the moment, what are your pregnancy must haves?!
