  • Prenatal vitamins and a body pillow or wedge to prop your legs up at the end.

  • I used a stuffed animal as a belly wedge in bed. I used palmer's lotions everyday and ummm a belly band for my stomach. A tube top would work. Just stretchy fabric.

  • I bought the Belly Bra support garment and was way more comfortable after I started wearing it.

  • Body pillow helped me sleep at night. Looser clothing, especially pants. Other than that, nothing else was a necessity for me.

  • Spicy food with my oldest and red meat with my youngest. Nothing other than that, and I didn't buy anything special other than maternity clothes.

  • For both of my pregnancy's I have had to buy body pillows to put between my legs when I sleep. I also got super attached to Vicks chest rub and the Vicks Vapor Inhaler because of my nose being so stuffy when I lay down to go to sleep. Chapstick is huge because for some reason my lips get super chapped when I'm pregnant. Also just like my lips my skin gets super dry so I try to find a really good moisturizer, right now I'm using Goldbond Sheer Ribbons Pearl Radiance. I also use a rub that is made especially for my belly during pregnancy called "Motherlove Pregnant Belly Salve". I just really like to pamper my body!!

  • Oh yes and also a "Belly Band" you can get them basically anywhere that has a maternity line- I got mine from Motherhood. The Belly Band just takes alot of pressure off of my back and makes it more comfortable to just live!

  • A belly band, two body pillows, a foot massager, vitamines, a good lotion, icecream, and loose clothes.
