My 5 pregnancy essentials

Now that I'm 16 weeks pregnant I wanted to share some of my essentials with you. I've been finding this pregnancy pretty tough so far. I'm not sure if it's because I've recently gone back to work after a long Summer break but I feel as though I've regressed back to the first trimester and am feeling pretty pants. These 5 things have been making my life a little bit easier, what couldn't you live without during your pregnancy?

1- Dreamgenii pregnancy pillow. I bought this during my first pregnancy with Ava and granted it's a little tatty now but I wouldn't be without it. With bump growing by the day it gives me the support I need to prevent me from sleeping on my stomach.

2- Amoralia nursing bra*. I actually reviewed this set a few years ago, when I was new to blogging and kept the bra with the tags on, ready for my next pregnancy. Nath found my old nursing bras the other day and nestled amongst them was this beauty. Not only is it visually appealing it is so comfortable too. My favourite maternity bra, I'll definitely be getting some more from their range.

3- Mama Mio Gorgeous Glow. One thing is for sure I have anything but a "gorgeous glow" at the moment. I've been suffering with pregnancy acne since before I realised I was pregnant. This product, while it doesn't solve my issue it sure helps it. It smells of beautiful lavender and leaves my skin feeling clean & fresh. I recently bought the full size version after trying a sample. I was hooked!

4- H&M denim maternity dress. I love the H&M maternity range, Mama. This dress is so lightweight and comfortable. It's easily dressed up or down and has been perfect during the muggy weather we've had recently.

5- John Lewis leggings. Now I know these aren't strictly maternity but I absolutely love these leggings so I thought it was worth giving them a mention. Leggings are a staple in a pregnant woman's wardrobe and this £18 pair from John Lewis are lovely. They are wonderfully soft and have a slight band at the top which is perfect for an expanding belly.

I'd love to know if you have any essentials that you think I'm missing out on?
