Must-haves for expecting mommas

This is the year of babies, as evident by how many of my friends and acquaintances are expecting a little one in the next few months. It makes me think back to when I was pregnant with my little ones, especially to the things that made those months just a little better. I have decided that there are some things that a new mom just HAS to do for herself.  Here is my list – please feel free to let me know if you think something needs added 🙂

1. A new WONDERFULLY YUMMY blanket just for her – not to have to share with hubby or the kids or anyone else but herself.  (I am so blessed – my aunt sent me a KING SIZE blanket for a gift when I was pregnant with my second wee one – one of those ridiculously soft ones!  Sooooo good!)

2. A good body pillow – this helps so much as the pregnancy progresses and the ole belly starts feeling more and more pressure. (My loving hub bought me one when I was about 4 months along with our first daughter – he got it from the place that sells the sleep number beds, whatever the name of it is.  It has maintained its shape and density perfectly and is even machine washable!)

3. Comfy panties that are a good 1 to 2 sizes larger than what you normally wear.  Call me crazy but the freedom to have nothing constricting as the belly grows is SO freeing!  I recommend the silky soft ones by Hanes, found at Walmart or Shopko  🙂

4. A delicious go-to beverage in the fridge.  For me it was licorice spice decaf tea, lemon slices for my water, and – I regret to say it – the powdered mocha mix from Costco for days when I REALLY needed a pick-me-up 🙂
