Pregnancy is an ideal time to start taking really good care of yourself both physically and emotionally. Last week on our Facebook page we asks moms about their must-have item during pregnancy. The response was amazing! We’ve rounded up a few tips and recommendations to help you feel great and grow a healthy baby!
Pregnancy can take a toll on your self-esteem and confidence. After all, your body is going through a lot of changes. Take it all in-stride and stay in-style with some of these functional fashion tools!
Bella Band: Early in pregnancy, slip the Bella Band over unbuttoned jeans, skirts and shorts to hold them up and hide the unfastened closures. It’s also ideal mid-pregnancy over too-loose maternity or snug-fitting transition wear, in late pregnancy as extra-hold for under-the-belly styles, and after pregnancy when maternity becomes big and pre-pregnancy is bit snug.
Carriwell Seamless Light Support Maternity Panty: Comfort is key during pregnancy and Carriwell knows it! To maximize comfort this light-support panty has extra stretchy leg openings and light built-in under tummy and lower back support. The support gently cradles your bump and relieves pressure on your back and abdomen.
It is difficult to completely prevent the symptom of nausea, as it is a natural and normal part of pregnancy. To prevent – or at least minimize symptoms, you may also want to eat small simple snacks frequently throughout the day. Also, sour and citrus foods help with the queasiness.

Vivitas Woman Mom to Be: There may be times when it’s hard to have a balanced diet. If you can’t eat much because you’re nauseous, or are rushing around at work, prenatal vitamins can be handy to ensure you are getting the nutrients you need. These vitamins supplies optimal levels of nutrients that are essential for normal metabolism & physical well being of expecting mothers.
Getting plenty of rest is essential to your pregnancy health. Relaxation techniques such as stretching and deep breathing are effective in reducing stress and fatigue and will assist in getting a better night’s sleep. Pregnancy can also take a toll on your skin. Skin tends to become more sensitive due to higher hormone levels, and extra delicate due to stretching. Soaps and detergents may suddenly cause irritation. To alleviate irritation, stay out of the sun and try an all-natural skincare approach!
