The second trimester of this pregnancy came slowly but then was gone quickly!
When I was pregnant with Clark I bought a grey maternity dress from Target. The Liz Lange line there is basically what I lived in but mostly this dress. I wore it alone in the summer with flip flops and continue to wear it with sneakers and a sweater or boots.
The Bio Oil helps with stretch marks for sure. I don't know if it's helped me not get them on my belly but I have been fortunate so far. I use this on and off with the Palmers Cocoa Butter lotion.
I got a really bad head cold and since there isn't much pregnant women can take, this Crane Cool Mist humidifier was a life saver. (We have one in Clark's room and one for the new baby!)
This pregnancy I have also been congested pretty much the entire time. Whether it's just hormones or my allergies (and I can't take my normal meds for that,) saline spray is something I found safe but super helpful.
Heartburn came in full force this pregnancy. Tums are my best friend.
This is where starting to sleep on your side is important, the Snoogle pillow helps me do that since I'm a back/belly sleeper normally. Couldn't get a nights sleep without it!
A new purchase this year is the Blanqi maternity support leggings. I know it's a splurge but honestly the support in them in SO helpful since I've started to have some sciatic issues this time around. Right now they are having a half off sale. RUN don't walk for these buttery leggings.
Check back for my third trimester must haves, along with what I am packing in my hospital bag!
