Now that I am firmly in my third trimester with 8 weeks to go until my due date, I wanted to share with you the things that I can't live without at the moment.
Gaviscon Double Action £6.49 Boots- I have been suffering with horrible acid reflux lately and have recently repurchased Gaviscon as I find that it is the only thing that helps me (although milk does help if you're looking for a quick fix). I have bought the larger, 300ml bottle as I know I'll go through it! I've also bought the handy, handbag sized sachets for when I'm out and about.
Maternity PJs £15 Topshop- These checked maternity PJs are my favourites and are currently on sale on the Topshop website for £15, Bargain! I've basically been living in them.
Dairy Milk chocolate- I'll admit, chocolate is not helping with my acid reflux but my sweet tooth is out of control lately. I'm never far away from chocolate and Dairy Milk is my all time favourite.
Belly Bandit B.D.A leggings*- When I do have to leave the house and my maternity PJs aren't acceptable, I've been wearing my favourite Belly Bandit B.D.A leggings. They are so comfortable and can be worn once the baby is born so I know I am still going to get so much wear out of them.
Gym ball- My friend, who is also training to be a Midwife, has just leant me her gym ball. I didn't use one with Ava but I've been finding it great to ease the bottom of my back when I'm struggling to get comfortable. She told me that it helps to get baby's head into position too,
Natal Hypnotherapy Pregnancy Relaxation Track*- If you've seen my previous post you'll know that I am currently reviewing an online hypnobirthing course with Natal Hypnotherapy and I'm finding this relaxation track so soothing and peaceful. I'm really hoping that hypnobirthing is going to be something that works for me. If you're interested in hypnobirthing yourself, make sure you check back with me once I have finished the course to see how I have got on.
Theraline Maternity Pillow*- I've recently reviewed this pillow and it's honestly fantastic. Especially now that my bump is getting bigger by the day, this really helps me to get comfortable at night. It will definitely be coming with me to the hospital, especially as it doubles as a feeding pillow.
What are some of the things that you couldn't live without during your third trimester?
