I have to say that really, I was pretty lucky my first trimester of pregnancy! I didn’t experience too much in the form of morning sickness, really only ever felt nauseous if I didn’t eat every 3-4 hours. I never puked, which was great because I’m not a fan (but really, who is?) at all. The first trimester for me pretty much meant a lot of sleep! I don’t think I was awake for more that 4-5 hours at time. Can’t say I miss that too much!
Today I thought I would share some of my personal first trimester must haves!
I had to have a huge glass of this first thing in the morning before I could even think about food. I would get sick to my stomach if I tried to do anything else. Trop 50 No Pulp was the one I chose because I liked the fact that it had less sugar and still tasted good!
I think this pillow is the bee’s knees! I bought it so early on to help train me to sleep on my side since I am a stomach sleeper. It did help with just that and now that I’m in the 2nd trimester, it is proving to be an even bigger help when sleeping! I tease Mr. B that he’s no longer needed since I have this pillow to cuddle with. 😉
My sister (who is also expecting) brought my attention to this and I’m glad she did! It is great for not only helping with my growing self, but also for my horrible dry skin. It is something I will be using even after I give birth!
These were what I kept on hand in my purse, my car, and my work bag when I was needing to eat something every 3-4 hours to stave off nausea. They worked perfectly!
I cannot sing enough praise for the Ovia apps! The fertility one is the one I used to keep track of my cycle to aid in getting pregnant. And as soon as I confirmed that I was, I downloaded their pregnancy one. This is my go-to for not only keeping me up to date on what’s happening with Baby B (including what fruit/vegetable they’re the size of), but also for weird symptoms and food I should avoid. There is a lot of great information on the app!
I discovered this far too late into my first trimester! These soon replaced my saltine crackers to help with the nausea. They’re just a little bit sour and are pretty tasty. They also really do the trick!
Other things that helped were Netflix and my Kindle! With all the resting I was doing, there was a lot of reading and watching TV! Which, let’s be honest that’s still going on. 😉
For my readers who have been pregnant, what were some of your must haves for the first trimester?
Any must haves for my second?
