My Pregnancy Diary: A Few of my Favorite Things

Happy December! 

Today I wanted to share a few pregnancy products that have become favorites over the last 2 trimesters.  I've tried to be smart with my purchases and invest in things that can easily transition into post pregnancy life and of course buying things on sale.

So let's get started! 😁
(Get ready to shop all products below!)


When it comes to clothing, I've purchased maternity leggings, jeans, and undergarments (undies, belly band, & tank).  All other pieces of clothing have been non-maternity and just purchased slightly larger to fit the belly and have an oversize look after belly.

These inexpensive Amazon Pregnology leggings, linked below, are only $20 and are so great for the price.  Lots of room for belly to grow, super comfy and stretchy, and not see through.  I have 2 pairs.  They are a bit cropped so if you are tall, prepare for them to be ankle length.  For those who are petite, they should fit at a perfect length.

For maternity jeans, I would suggest checking the sale rack at your local H&M.  They seem to always have maternity jeans on sale.  I purchased a pair of skinny jeans for $8.  They are not on sale online, but I have linked them below.

Another great Amazon find were these Suekaphin low rise undies.  Super comfy and not constricting.  They are currently 8 for $24.

If you're interested in a belly band, I like the one for Target's maternity line.  I also like the Leonisa seamless support undergarment from Amazon.  They look like shape wear but do not squish your belly.  They're great to wear under dresses for some extra belly support and thigh smoothing.

Belly Oils/Lotions:

I have been using 3 products to keep my belly hydrated, smooth, ease itching, and help prevent stretch marks.  I would recommend all 3!  I was lucky enough to find Kora Organics Noni Glow Body Balm at my local Marshall's, so I bought a few bottles.  I do feel like it finishes quickly, but I do love it.  It's like a roll-on balm and absorbs almost like an oil.  Similar to coconut oil.  A friend of mine gifted me with this belly oil from Glowry and I LOVE it.  Absorbs so well and smells sooo good.  And of course, Bio Oil.  It really is one of the best stretch mark oils out there.


I have stuck with the skincare products that I mentioned before. (Full post here!)  I am REALLY happy with The Ordinary products that I switched over to.


I purchased my pregnancy pillow from Bed Bath and Beyond.  Can't sleep without it!  If you're interested, sign up for their coupons and get yours for 20% off!

Lastly, if you suffer with nausea and enjoy sour candy, I would recommend the Preggie Pop Drops from Amazon. 

I hope you guys found this post helpful!
