1.Pregnancy body pillow
The first thing to do after finding out you’re pregnant is to buy yourself a pregnancy body pillow. Ha! Or of course ask your partner to buy it for you 🙂 Even though at this very moment you’re not showing and you’re still feel comfortable sleeping. This body pillow is going to change your pregnant life!
I had one with each of my pregnancies and I loved it so so much. I’m a stomach sleeper, so for me it was hard to sleep any other way. This pregnancy body pillow helped me sleep more comfortable. This is definitely a first trimester must have!
Here are more pregnancy body pillow options:
2. Stretch mark lotions
Apply your favorite stretch mark lotion everyday through your entire pregnancy. All 9 months if you will. You can apply it once in the morning, after taking a bath and then before going to sleep. This of course helps prevent stretch mark in pregnancy and also helps to hydrate your growing belly.

3.Morning sickness remedies
Oh the horror of having morning sickness in your pregnancy. It’s not fun at all, trust me I’ve been there! But, I know that knowing what helps sooth it in the beginning of your pregnancy helps a lot. I know a lot of pregnant women swear by these ginger candy and I have also heard great things about these Preggie pop drops.
Documenting and writing down everything you go through during your pregnancy is something you’ll have and cherish forever. Having a pregnancy journal is a great way to keep busy, write your feelings and document every trimester! You can then of course share it with your little ones once they are older.
Here are great and beautiful journals to choose from:
5.Maternity pants and leggings
You may get away with buying large or extra large shirts for your growing belly. But, getting away with wearing your pre-baby jeans? not so much. That’s why is important to start buying pregnancy pants or leggings. They are super comfortable and your belly will be comfortably snugged in it. With my twin pregnancy, I lived in leggings and I had no shame in it, ha!
Here are great options for you:

I never knew I was going to say this, but you need to buy maternity bras and panties. It’s just more comfortable for you and they fit perfect with your growing belly. When your’re pregnant your boobs are going to get bigger! (yay!) and your butt as well. You need to either size up on your current size or simply buy maternity underwear.
