"There is so much information to take in during this magical process, it has my brain on overload. I have been researching everything from best diapers to developmental stages and what I should be doing during different trimesters to help keep my peanut healthy and comfortably brewing away in her cozy habitat. I've learned the hard way that finding moments for myself are just as important as anything else I can be doing while getting ready for baby. And let's face it, those lazy, quiet, blissful mornings of coffee and the newspaper are about to be reshaped very soon into a whole new routine. So, while it is currently about these blissful moments, I have made a list of some great prego things that not only am I enjoying but in some cases, have changed my life."
1.) Bump Boxes Subscriptions- These are so fun, and basically like Birchbox for soon to be moms! Bump Boxes has many different subscription options, everything from an individual box to send as a gift (hint, hint) to 9 months of monthly boxes! These boxes contain full-size products of goodies both practical and indulgent to get you through your pregnancy. They even have boxes for each trimester, which is perfect for a first time mama like myself! It's also a great way to be introduced to new products and vendors that you might even continue to use after pregnancy.
2.) Snoogle - Game. Changer. I love my Snoogle. I actually cannot live without it right now, as it is the only thing that helps me sleep. As a stomach sleeper, I started very early in pregnancy to train myself how to sleep on my side. It would have been miserable without this pillow. And let's face it, pregnancy sleep is going to be all over the place anyways, so when you can find a routine and products that help you to adjust to the constant changes with your body, hold on tight, and snuggle in!
3.) Prenatal Massage - This was the ultimate treat for some "Me time". Don't forget you are quite literally growing a human, you deserve to be pampered! Or at least that is what I tell myself. For me, my back and hips have bothered me in ways that I never thought possible. As the weeks tick on, there is always a new surprise as my body changes. I was nervous to get my first prenatal, as I wanted to make sure that I wasn't doing anything to harm the baby, but I was so uncomfortable I was ready for any form of relief. I did my research, checked with my doctor, found a very well known reputable spot in Brooklyn, and enjoyed every single second of it. That night, I had my best nights sleep in months.
