Since I am on my third pregnancy, I can say with complete assurance these items stayed true and essential! Also, due to my pregnancies being pretty awful (I hate to say it…they’re awful, but worth it!) I may have some essentials that I feel are really important but may not be as important for someone with a breeze of a pregnancy! Either way, I’m trying to cover the basis!
(Bellaband, Seamless Cami + Belly Leggings)
(Also perfect when breastfeeding!)
(The perfect piece to dress up or down, add a cozy sweater or pretty cardigan…trust me, it’s essential!)
If you follow me on Instagram or have while I have been pregnant, you will most likely see many pretty little pieces from PinkBlush. Keeping my style and feeling trendy doesn’t go away when I am pregnant, and I have found PinkBlush to always have the sweet little clothing items to keep me comfy but still look quite put together! I wear PinkBlush pregnant or not, but their options are definitely the most flattering with that sweet little bump!
I have never had issues with sizing when shopping online and their prices are hard to beat! The styles are constantly changing and staying fresh so be warned, if you see something you love, it might be gone the next week! Though they have kept some staples that I LOVE, like my floral delivery robe I wear pretty much every day. Here are a few of my recent picks from Pinkblush that I am loving!

Now that I’ve broken down the essentials to help make your pregnancy a breeze, here are some of my favourite extra ‘nice-to-haves’ because…you gotta do a little something special to care for your self too!
If there was a group for Box Subscriptions Anonymous my husband would most likely force me to join. I LOVE box subscriptions. Curated goodies delivered to your door from some favourite well-known brands and tons of special ones who may have never came across but end up falling in love with. I usually go for the beauty/wellness/self-care ones and they never disappoint!
My current fave subscriptions are

Whether you are a workout junkie, yogi or not…exercise balls are amazing at relieving aching hips! It can even help you during the end of your pregnancy to help reposition baby, or during labour to ease your body during contractions while helping baby move down. The exercise ball is even great for after the baby is born but is refusing to sleep…just bounce them into dreamland. It seems kinda crucial doesn’t it? You can decide if it will be your essential or not! Buy one here!
I know this is definitely not a necessity, but if you plan on having more than one baby it really might be beneficial for you! Since my pregnancies are pretty hard, documenting everything gave me some time frames on when to expect what and how my body handles each of the stages. It’s really interesting now to look back at my previous two pregnancies with my boys because my first two were SO similar, and this one is completely different…could it mean something? We will wait and see!! Get this super adorable one from Studio Oh! here!
Since I get Hyperemesis Gravidarium with all my pregnancies, unfortunately, nutrition isn’t something I can really control, at least for the majority. Most days being able to keep down some toast and apple juice is considered a win. Though once I start feeling better, my nutrition becomes one of my number one concerns! Keeping as healthy as possible will always only positively affect baby (as long as you aren’t shocking your body with diets or restricted eating). If you have great pregnancies, this guide will be so valuable to you throughout the entire 9 months!
