Third Trimester Favorites


Third Trimester Favorites

Wow where has the time gone?! The baby girl is due in nine days!!! I've been so fortunate to have had a very smooth pregnancy. Fingers crossed the delivery is as smooth as it can be. What better time than now to wrap up my pregnancy than with my "Third Trimester" favorites.

1. Gap Pure Body V-neck
I've lived in this tee during my third trimester and wish I would have bought a few more. It's the perfect length, super soft and forgiving -- three things every pregnant woman wants.

2. Waxlene
Throughout my pregnancy I've had the worse dry/chapped lips. Some lip balms work better than others, but the last month waxlene has been the best for me. I actually received a tube via Whole Baby (Swaggable + Whole Foods) to test out and OMG am I thankful. The best part about waxlene is it has over 100 uses.

3. Lara Bar
Perfect on-the-go snack! I have them stashed everywhere from from desk, purse and car. You never know when you'll need a little snack. Preggos/mamas you know what I'm talking about.

4. Brain Rules for Baby
This is the only "pregnancy" book I bought. Medina offers an interesting perspective to raising a child. I'm intrigued how life will go once she's actually here. I like that he paints a real picture and doesn't beat around the bush from pregnancy, martial relationships postpartum and raising a happy baby. I guess only time will tell.

5. Olay Facial Brush
I've had this facial brush well before becoming pregnant, but it's helped me look fresh and clean. I didn't have a single breakout and I think the brush helped play a part.

6. Lotion
I can't stress enough how important it is to moisturize daily. I use a combo of Aveeno Active Naturals Daily Moisturizing Lotion and Burt's Bees Mama Bee Belly Butter. It's helped tremendously with itchy skin and love marks (aka stretch marks).

7. Hydroflask
Hydrate, hydrate, hydrate. I can't drink enough water throughout the day. A good water bottle is key. I love hydroflask because it can keep beverages cold or hot for up to 24 hours!

8. TOMS
I've always been a big fan of TOMS, but in the last month it's all I wear. They are so easy to just slip on -- no need to bend over. I own a few pairs and I'm in the market for another :)

There you have it a few things that made my third trimester that much easier. I should note I never bought a pregnancy pillow and am happy with that decision.

Not pregnant? Maybe pin for later :)

    1. I love it and use it with my normal Origins face wash. Every so often it's on sale at Target for $20/25 or gift card with purchase.

  2. What a great list! I don't go anywhere without my HydroFlask, chapstick and some kind of bar!! GAP's basic shirts are AMAZING...I am always layering one under/over something else - they are so comfy!

  3. Now, I have to try those Gap shirts! Been looking for something just like that. I'm not a fan of traditional maternity shirts & reverted to sizing up in my last pregnancy.

    I love Lara Bars too! Actually already have them on my list of items to pick up today. I also want to check out that Burt's Bees Mama's lotion. Thank you beautiful momma-to-be!

    1. I've been pleased with most of the "maternity" items from the GAP and plan to write a full post. Thanks and good luck!

  5. Pregnancy pillows are massive! I never bought one either. I do sleep with two pillows, but even in our king bed the pregnancy pillow is just a bit too excessive. I'm at 34 weeks and my Toms, lotion and t-shirts are my best friends right now. Good luck with delivery and can't wait to see pictures!
