3rd Trimester Pregnancy Essentials

 

Ah the third trimester, the home stretch of pregnancy!

 

Comfort is key

During the 3rd trimester, leggings are your best friend. You can wear this pair over your belly or folded down. I like to wear mine both ways, but I know many have a strong preference one way or the other.

I’ve been layering leggings with tees, cozy cardigans and various scarves. Cardigans are also great for postpartum paired with a nursing tank.

I’ve been living in these kicks.

As the girls continue to grow, these are lifesavers for making your bras continue to fit.

My wedding season has been heavy (I still have 2 more this year!) and I’ve loved wearing the Spanx power mama shaper. I also highly recommend their mama maternity tights.

Pamper yourself and rest

Your life is about to change for the better, but little luxuries that you do for yourself might be harder to schedule…I always feel better when my nails are done. I’ve been rotating my mani colors between very berry, smokin hot and bordeaux.

Since I was around 27 weeks pregnant I’ve been sleeping with this pillow and I think it’s a pregnancy necessity.

Indulge in robe life and a face mask.

This is part vanity, part indulgence but I use Bio-Oil in the morning and evening to stave off stretch marks.

Stay healthy 

Keep drinking lots of h2O! I find that having a water bottle on hand always helps me achieve this. I rotate between this one and this one!

Speaking of water, I had to eliminate my beloved La Croix from my beverage diet because it was causing me acid reflux. In my last trimester, I always have TUMS on hand.

With all the changes going on with my body, my muscles are tighter than ever. I rely heavily on a massage ball and foam roller for relief.
