Pregnancy Products Review

After thinking about this for a while, I wanted to give my few Pregnancy Products that I have used over the last 8+ months. Also, figuring with the pregnancy coming to a close, I most likely will not be trying out anything new.

Bella Band: This was great for letting me wear my pre-maternity pants longer and keeping the maternity pants I did buy fit until they actually did fit. It can be use for all stages of pregnancy as well. I still use it to keep my one pair of pant up.

Knits: This is the best fabric for clothes. Honestly, I have 4 pairs of maternity pants, 2 shirts, 2 dresses and one swimsuit. All the rest of the clothes I have been wearing are knits, just in the size up from my normal size. Granted this may not work for everyone but it worked for me.


Shea Butter Body Lotion from L'Occitane: Granted I went though a pretty rough winter with horrible dry skin but in pregnancy you are suppose to get dry skin. This worked wonders but super pricey.

Therapy Massage Bar from Lush & Nutts Bar: This was great for those extreme dry skin moments where my skin was red and bumpy and just plain gross. But again, too pricey to use all the time so I got it when my skin really needed it. The hubbs benefited from this as well.

Motherlode belly oil: It was a nice oil once the winter finished with my skin. I used it on my stomach to prevent stretch marks.

Earth Mama Angel Belly oil: I liked this one better and still using it right now. I get more oil with the pump.


What to expect when you are expecting: get a copy from someone or used copy from a book store. Don't buy it, everyone has a copy.

Pregnancy Week-By-Week: Again, get a copy from someone or look it up online. Most pregnancy information is posted online on these websites.

The Nursing Mother's Companion: Revised Edition & The Womanly Art of Breastfeeding: Seventh Revised: Great information about Breastfeeding. I would highly recommend them.

Baby Bargains: This is a great guide to help you find out what you really need for the baby.

Itsabelly's Guide to Going Green with Baby: This is a great companion to the Bargains book because it lets you know what to get in terms of green lifestyle.

Raising Baby Green: The Earth-Friendly Guide to Pregnancy, Childbirth, and Baby Care: Great introduction to green life with baby.

Anything else, I will think of later or just ask me when you get around to getting preggers and I am pretty sure I will either hook you up or find a way to hook you up.

(In no way was I paid to talk about these products, I just loved them and wanted to share.
