Third Trimester Essentials

Third-Trimester-Essentails

I’m more than half way through my third trimester, and so ready for our baby boy to be here! These are some products along with my key essentials like my pregnancy pillow, belly butter & maternity denim that have been beneficial.

25 oz Water Bottle – I love this chic water bottle. It doesn’t sweat, so I can throw it in my purse and it’s handy throughout the day. It keeps cold drinks cold for 24 hours, and hot drinks hot for 12. Bonus: It’s stroller & car cup holder friendly

Third Trimester Tea – This flavorful tea helps your body prep for labor. Ingredients like Red Raspberry Leaf, Chamomile and Rosehips make it a calming drink before bed

Organic Body Lotion – While I continue to use my favorite belly butter religiously, I love this inexpensive organic body lotion for everyday use. It’s really hydrating, dries quickly, and I love the subtle Sweet Orange Vanilla scent

Slip on Sneaks – It’s starting to feel like Spring, these slip on sneakers are super comfy and extremely versatile

Healthy Snacks – I like to keep hummus and fresh cut veggies in the fridge for a midday snack, because I tend to get nauseous or light-headed at times. Another favorite is Skinny Pop mixed with coconut oil spray and Nutritional Yeast, and shaken well. It has a cheesy flavor, and full of vitamins (B12 in particular)

Nursing Nightgown – Comfy nightgowns are the ultimate sleep go-to. Nursing options mean I can wear them long after my pregnancy

Zantac – I’ve learned what foods to avoid that trigger acid reflux and heartburn, but when when it still occurs, my doctor recommended Zantac. I keep it in my handbag, and it ‘s always helpful

Matcha Tea

I’m an avid tea drinker, so when I heard all the hype of trendy Matcha Tea, I couldn’t wait to give it a try. I can say, I’m officially obsessed! The ground green tea powder has a slew of benefits from being full of antioxidants, a metabolism booster, as well as an energy booster.

 My favorite way to sip is 1/2 C of homemade almond milk, and 1/2 C water boiled, with 1 t Matcha Tea powder whisked in. To give it a try, order a Matcha Tea Latte at your local coffee spot. It’s bliss in a cup.
