So this may only apply to a few of you right now but I thought I'd share two of my favorites during this pregnancy. Would you like to know what has helped me feel more comfortable and happy this time?
The Bella Band (found mine at Target)I can’t believe I spent the span of two full pregnancies (one of them with twins) without ever owning one! I had heard of the concept before and even made a few using old undershirts but they never compared to the quality and support of the real deal. I know there are cheaper versions out there, but nothing has compared to these. I’m now hooked.
The concept is simple. It’s an elastic band that fits over the top of your jeans/pants/skirts and up onto your belly. You can use it to cover the fact that your jeans are unbuttoned, to hold up maternity pants/skirts that are a bit too loose, or simply to wear under shirts that are too short. I bought three (two white one black) and I have seriously used them every single day of my pregnancy and plan to use them postpartum as well. Right now, I am really appreciating the support it gives my belly and even back. So I would definitely say the Bella Band is a favorite!
Jewel Lullaby (I found it a Target but have seen it at Walmart too)
I discovered this a while back and it is seriously one of my favorite albums of all time! It calms me (and the girls) down when the day is getting crazy or when it's nap time. Jewels' voice is like magic in this album...seriously angelic. It is all acoustic and 10 of the songs she wrote herself. I listened to it at a little kiosk in Target and decided to get it and am so glad I did. Seriously a favorite over here!
I've also really been enjoying burnt almond chocolate ice cream, chocolate in general, limes, tums (well I enjoy that they usually get rid of my heartburn), and Marshmallow Matey's (off brand of Lucky Charms). :)
Do you have any favorites? Please share!
