First Trimester Must Haves!

Welcome to the Second Trimester!

What a wonderful present it was to say that I entered the second trimester on my husband’s birthday. I was out of town for a family member’s wedding in the states so we were unable to celebrate.

The First Trimester flew by and to be honest, it was made easier by the following:

  1. Naps and a sleep mask (to help when I had massive migraines)
  2. Anti-nausea remedies, Gin Gins Ginger Candies, Gravol and Dramamine Motion Sickness Tablets (I was a bit worried for a few weeks and thought I had Hyperemesis Gravidarum (HG) and was relieved to learn that I didn’t)
  3. Water (due to the metallic taste in my mouth, I opted to drink vitamin water or just suck on ice cubes or popsicles.
  4. Prenatal and DHA vitamins the brand I used is the New Chapter Perfect Prenatal and Whole Mega Salmon Oil with DHA. Prior to conceiving I was taking Nature’s Bounty Prenatal Complete.
  5. Bland crackers and other snacks, to help with all day nausea
  6. Ovia Pregnancy App (this app is so informative and user-friendly)
  7. Loose fitting shirts and leggings
  8. Reading material (Especially pins on Pinterest, What to Expect When You’re Expecting, Skinny Bitch Bun in the Oven, etc.)
  9. Wireless bra
  10. Chia seeds as a source of fibre and to help with constipation

Can you relate?

What were your must-haves during the first trimester?

Stay strong and beautiful!
