Everything I Loved During My First Pregnancy

  1. Beneath Your Mask Heal Whipped Skin Soufflé – When I found out I was pregnant, one of the first things I did was look for body care products that would be hydrating and nourishing for the skin, especially the belly. I know stretch marks are natural and may come with pregnancy, so finding a product that would protect my skin as much as possible was important.
    This body cream was one of my favorite products I discovered during pregnancy. It’s an Allure Best of. Beauty winner that feels luxurious and smells amazing. It’s thick whipped texture melts instantly when you rub between your palms and skin feels moisturized and nourished instantly. I was a bit hesitant to get this for $80 but it was worth every penny! I was able to stretch this out by using it only on my belly and boobs; it lasted through my entire pregnancy.
    This product is clean, vegan and cruelty free.

  2. Lululemon Align Leggings – I didn’t want to buy maternity clothes until I really needed it, so I sized up in my favorite Lululemon Align Leggings. I love these leggings before pregnancy and found these to be the most comfortable leggings because they are stretchy and feel buttery soft. I sized up and was able to wear these all the way to my due date and am still wearing them postpartum. I know they’re expensive but I do think they are great quality and know I will be wearing these over and over again. These also pass the squat test. 🙂

  3. Vans Slip On – I was pregnant for the most of fall and winter so slip ons were my best friend. Easy to put on and take off with a growing belly. Forget tying your shoes!

  4. Biossance 100% Squalane Oil – Did you know our bodies are naturally born with squalene? As we age our body stops producing this oil, kind of like how collagen production slows as we age. I moisturized my entire body with this after showering and used an extra pump or two on my belly. Love that it’s clean, made of one ingredient, hydrating and leaves my skin feeling so soft. It was a favorite before, during and after pregnancy. Definitely a holy grail for me!

  5. Hydroflask – I love my 64 oz (half gallon) Hydroflask! Staying hydrated during pregnancy is so important. I drank at t least a gallon of water every day and this size Hydroflask helped me stay on track and saved me from taking multiple trips to refill my cup.

  6. Pregnancy Body Pillow Getting rest is so important during pregnancy and sleeping with this body pillow helped me feel more comfortable and supported as the belly got bigger. I am a side sleeper and loved using this body pillow! Not sure why I didn’t have a body pillow prior to pregnancy. Even after giving birth I am still using mine!

  7. Maternity Support Panty – I loved wearing this with my bodycon dresses during the late summer. These were easy to wear, supportive and priced fairly. I sized up.

  8. Bodycon Dresses – I didn’t want to buy any maternity dresses if I didn’t have to. I found myself reaching for a lot of my bodycon dresses because they had a lot of stretch to them. I remember telling myself, “Good thing I bought these good quality bodycon dresses when I did” because they definitely were pregnancy approved! I thought these could be easily dressed down or up. Since I was pregnant in the summer/early fall, I could wear my slip on or slides. But now that we are in winter, these dresses would look great with sneakers or boots. A oversized coat would pull the look together.
    Linking some cute midi bodycon dresses!
