My Pregnancy Must-Haves

There are so many wonderful products around for us preggo ladies, it's almost impossible not to pamper ourselves day and night! (Rightly so, we bloody deserve it :)) so I thought I would share with you all some products I have been loving through my pregnancy so far...

Sanctuary Spa Mum-to-Be Collagen Boosting Body Butter
 
Where do I begin?! I received a sample of this in the Mum-to-Be Pure Pamper Bag, which a work colleague got me as a very thoughtful Secret Santa gift. This also included the Tummy Soothing Bath Soak and 2 in 1 Moisturising Shower Cream, which I love, but I instantly fell in love with the body butter, and have used it every day since.

I use this twice daily and apply all over my tummy, hips, thighs, bum and boobs (TMI??) and so far have been very lucky not to have any stretch marks *fingers crossed* this continues!

It's approx. £10 for 300ml, but in my opinion worth every penny! I will definitely continue to use this after my pregnancy :)


Bio-Oil
 
This to me should be a staple in everyone's skin care routine! I have been using Bio-Oil for years, but fell in love with it all over again after becoming pregnant.

For those if you who haven't come across this product, it is an oil (PureCellin Oil) that helps improve the appearance of scars, stretch marks and uneven skin tone. It is hypo-allergenic so suitable for all skin types.

It is a bit on the pricey side, but a little goes a long way. I like to use this after a bath on an evening, and let it soak into my skin before getting ready for bed. It can also be a great addition to bath water - just make sure to wipe the bath out after as it can leave a bit of a grease round the tub!



By Carla Mum and Baby Support Pillow
 
I read so many great things about this pillow in other pregnancy blogs that I had to purchase one myself, and it has been attached to me ever since!

I have been getting really bad back ache recently, and can never get comfortable on the couch or in bed at night, but this has been a total god-send. It's great for lower back support, as well as cuddling into as a pillow and will be perfect for when baby J arrives so I can use for him/her either to lie on, or as a support when breast feeding. (On a separate note, I think I have decided to try both breast and bottle. I don't want to completely rely on breast feeding, in case I don't like it or baby J doesn't take to it, but I want to give it a good go before going to the bottle!)

If you are having a tough time sleeping, or just getting comfy then I totally recommend this. It comes it lots of different colours which I love. I went for the raspberry polkadot one.



There are tons more products I have been using during my pregnancy, but these are the ones that so far I have really loved, and thought I could 100% recommend to purchase. I will continue to update this post as I find more products, but hopefully this is some help to you other preggo ladies out there!
