Friday Favorites: Maternity Edition

Happy Friday!  Over the next few months, I’m going to sprinkle some baby-related themed Friday Favorites posts.  First up?  The maternity edition.

Below, are just a few favorites while I was pregnant for you moms-to-be:

New Chapter Perfect Prenatal Vitamins

These are great and don’t make you feel sick.  A BIG plus in the first trimester.  And if you order on Amazon, you can do the “Subscribe and Save” for every three months to get a great deal.


LARA Bars are great to throw in your purse whenever you’re starving and need a quick pick-me-up.

One Love Organic Body Serum

Early on, my friend Josie told me to rub my belly with olive oil everyday to prevent stretch marks.  I heeded her advice and definitely think it helped.  But when my sister, Cally found out I was basting myself like a turkey each night before bed, she helped me upgrade to One Love Organic Body Serum.
It does the same thing, but leaves you with a calming, lavender scent rather than feeling like poultry.

10 Minute Prenatal Pilates

I’d love to tell you I did this everyday, but that would be a lie.  However, I LOVED this pilates DVD.  So easy and relaxing.  Great for helping you stretch out, tone up, and feel more comfortable.  And they make it so easy.  You can just do a 10 minute segment if you’re short on time, or all 50 minutes.

As for maternity clothes, I highly recommend splurging on at least one nice pair of jeans.  That’s pretty much all I wore.  I got a pair of J Brand and AG from Pea in the Pod (after googling a great coupon).  It’s pricey, but definitely worth it!

Old Navy has some really cheap options.  I loved a bunch of their t-shirt and tanks.  And they pretty much have sales every week.  I will say, that the quality isn’t always the greatest, but for a cheap, new wardrobe, it’s good for a few staples, like this black ribbed tank:
But my favorite was Gap Maternity.  A little pricier than Old Navy, but better quality.  And it seems like once a week they have 30% off sales, so if you keep checking online, you can get some great deals.  Like right now, just enter GAPFRIENDS for 30% off everything!
