Organic Third Trimester Tea is a hearty blend of stinging nettles, chamomile, rosehips, oatstraw and red raspberry leaf, traditionally used to nurture your third trimester self and to prepare for labor.
Drinking water is so important during the third trimester because dehydration can trigger contractions that can lead to preterm labor. Keeping a tumbler with you means you can use water fountains on-the-go or filtered water from home anywhere and everywhere, and have no excuse for not drinking up the H2O! According to the Institute of Medicine, the recommended water intake is 12 glasses of water a day during pregnancy.
I basically live in black leggings with dresses or tunics. Even though it seems to have mixed reviews, I loved these! Super comfortable and versatile and for my budget, perfect at only $15.
Your body changes in every way during pregnancy, including your chest! You may have itchy skin, heavy feeling breasts, or even leaking milk at this time! This bra will be just what you need to sleep now, and wear it well into postpartum, breastfeeding days. The nursing bra is supportive, but with enough stretch to make it comfortable to sleep in.
As I mentioned above, milk can start to come in and leaking can occur at anytime during pregnancy. Stock up on nursing pads now either way! They absorb the leaking milk and are soft against your skin.
When your belly is bumpin’ and your regular underwear dig into your skin and leave marks, these underwear are life savers. You will also appreciate them after labor at the hospital and postnatal because they are soft and offer full coverage.
Snoogle takes the place of multiple pillows to help support hips, back, neck, and tummy!
As your due date gets closer, the to-do lists get longer! Pack the hospital bag, install the carseat, find a pediatrician for baby, get the nursery ready, wash the newborn clothes…keep track of all the lists with a handy notepad!
One thing that will make you feel more comfortable is to bring your own socks to the hospital! Yes, you do get the freebies the hospital provides but these are more fun, stay on, and motivate you.
You can never be too prepared for pregnancy and childbirth! Whether you are on bed rest or just nesting at home, a good book will help you relax, learn, and enjoy the last days of pregnancy, the anxious times during labor, and get you prepared for baby’s big arrival!
What’d we miss…what helped YOU get through the third trimester?
