Healthy Eating Pregnancy Products For Mom

So, what are some healthy eating pregnancy products for mom?

What does that mean?

Healthy Pregnancy Recipes To Stay On Track

The Whole 9 Months: A Week-By-Week Pregnancy Nutrition Guide with Recipes for a Healthy Start

I LOVED The Whole 9 Months cookbook.

It made me feel good to have healthy eating advice and recipes right at my fingertips.

I was also trying to minimize time spent on my phone (a pregnancy-related feeling of connecting to real things instead of the virtual world – hey, pregnancy hormones are powerful, haha!) so having the book made me feel good.

This book is thorough – it covers your pregnancy week by week and is packed full of nutritious recipes.

A Good Prenatal Vitamin

New Chapter Perfect Prenatal Vitamins Fermented with Probiotics + Wholefoods + Folate + Iron + Vitamin D3 + B Vitamins + Organic Non-GMO Ingredients - 96 ct (Packaging May Vary)

Most mamas believe they’re taking a multivitamin for the baby when truthfully, a good vitamin is needed to help YOU.

My OB let me know the baby will take whatever vitamins and nutrients it needs from your store of them.

That means it’s easy for you to get run down while you’re pregnant and that’s the LAST thing you want.

Pregnancy is not the time to catch a cold.

I took these organic vitamins and I’m happy to say I didn’t get sick once during my pregnancy.

They’re 100% digestible which is perfect if you’re suffering from morning sickness or any food aversions.

Clothing Pregnancy Products For Mom

Make sure to check out The Ultimate Guide to Maternity Clothing – I go into more detail about what you actually need for your pregnancy.

Remember when I said that I would share a money saving hack?

It’s here in the clothing pregnancy products for mom aka your maternity clothes. ๐Ÿ™‚

I get it – you want to look and feel good – it’s hard gaining weight and belly during pregnancy, so the answer must be to go out and buy some really cute maternity clothes to dress your bump.

That’s both right and wrong.

You need to be sensible with your purchases – remember pregnancy is 9 months – not a lifetime!

Once your pregnancy is over and your postpartum recovery is done, those cute pregnancy clothes will collect dust.

Here are some recommendations to save money on your pregnancy wardrobe and still look cute:

Over The Belly Leggings

Mothers Essentials Maternity Pregnant Women Leggings, Shipping from USA (Medium, Brown)

Invest in some ‘over the bump’ leggings in black and maybe two other colors.

They’re super comfy and they look great with any top.

Pregnancy leggings will be the foundation of your wardrobe but you don’t need a crazy amount of pairs. ๐Ÿ™‚

Layering Maternity Tank Tops

Jinson Pack of 3pcs Mama Womens Basic Layering Maternity Tank Top Pregnancy Tee Scoop Neck Sleeveless Solid Side Ruched Vest

The key to your maternity wardrobe is to layer, layer and layer.

These ruched tanks are perfect for throwing a sweater over that you already own.

If you’re third trimester pregnant in the summer, they look cute on their own.

These ones come in 3 different colors to give you variety.

You may be tempted to buy several cute pregnancy tops, but I do caution you not to – you’re pregnant for such a short period of time!

Over The Belly Maternity Shorts

Motherhood Indigo Blue Secret Fit Belly Roll Hem Maternity Shorts

Going to be very pregnant in the summer?

Do yourself a favor and invest in ‘over the belly’ shorts to keep yourself nice and cool – well, as much as possible, haha!

This is the one maternity clothes item I regret not buying, to be honest.

My baby girl was born in August and I suffered on the days that I didn’t feel like wearing a dress.

So, I borrowed my hubby’s sports shorts and well, um, they didn’t make me feel too good.

One Maternity Dress

Women's Ruched Maternity Bodycon Dress Mama Causual Short Sleeve Wrap Dresses,Grey White,medium

Remember I said I had my daughter in August?

This maternity dress was something I lived in.

I got a few colors so that I felt I was mixing things up.

(It really is the small things when you’re pregnant!)

During the spring I would pair it with a light sweater that I already owned.

Comfy Underwear Made For Pregnant Women

Intimate Portal Women Under The Bump Maternity Panties Pregnancy Underwear 5-pk Neutral Colors XL

Maternity underwear was one of those pregnancy products for Mom that I was skeptical about.

I just thought the underwear I already had would sit nicely under my belly.

Yup, I was wrong.

I felt like the band on my regular underwear was digging into my belly, which made me worry about my baby (who was absolutely fine but ya know I’m a mama, haha!)

Do yourself a favor and invest in maternity underwear.

The last thing you want is your undies falling down or bunching up in weird places.

A Bella Band

Ingrid & Isabel BellaBand Women's New Everyday Bellaband, Black, 1

Have a fav pair of jeans that aren’t meant for pregnancy?

Yup, me too.

I LOVED my Bella band.

Having one in my maternity clothes arsenal meant I didn’t need to buy as many pants, because I could wear the band and it held my pants up even though I could no longer button them!

Talk about money saving!

Pregnancy Waistband Extender

Maeband (Small, Royal Blue)

UPDATE:ย I just found this waistband extender and I am SO trying this for my next pregnancy!

It’s stretchy and goes through your belt loops to extend the waist of your pants.

This is brilliant, mamas!! ๐Ÿ™‚

I LOVE this side sleep pregnancy pillow!

Ultimate Pregnancy Sleep Support

Babymoov Dream Belt Sleep Aid | Pillow Alternative & Wedge Support for Comfortable Side Sleeping and Pain Relief During Pregnancy (ONE Size FITS Most)

By the end of your pregnancy, you may find your belly is so big, you have permanent back pain and/or pelvis strain.

To be honest, pregnancy puts a lot of stress on your hips and pelvis.

Hips widen for birth and take the grunt work of supporting your growing baby.

That’s what makes this pregnancy sleep support so incredible – it wraps around your belly and fills the gap between the mattress and your hips and waist, giving your pelvis and hips a well-deserved break.

It also means sleeping on your side just got a whole lot more comfortable!

It’s refreshing and rejuvenating for your body.
