Pregnancy: Third Trimester Must-Haves

  • Print

As I mentioned in my last blog, time is literally ticking away...countdown now is at 6 weeks till baby!  Eeek!  I am in full nesting/organizing/stressing out mode, but it's all good!  Here is a list of my third trimester must-haves for every pregnant woman:

1.  Water Bottle:  OK, you already are making a bazillion trips to the potty, so you might as well drink your gadzooks amount of water from a cute bottle.  There are a ton of options, this one from Camelbak comes in pretty colors and has a nice flip-top spout.

2.  Body Pillow:  I wouldn't be able to live without the Boppy Body Pillow.  Seriously, I started using this in my second trimester and have used it every night ever since.  This new one is pretty cool, it comes in three parts, that you can customize to your preference or comfort level.  I have only to this point used the bottom piece, placed in between my knees, but am ready now with my growing belly to make the transition to the entire full-body pillow.

3.  Sweet Treats:  My favorite obsession these days = Twizzlers.  Enough said.

4.  Stretch Mark Cream:  They say it's genetics that you either get 'em or you don't, but who wants to leave that to chance?  I seriously SWEAR by the Advanced Stretch Mark Butter, from Basq.  A good friend of mine sent me a jar when I first got pregnant and am on my 4th one.  I use it day and night, in conjunction with their Resilient Body Oil.  It's the perfect combination of moisture and protection, and makes my belly feel amazing, and the smell is luxurious too!
