Hey hey hey!!

I'm so excited to share this outfit but also share my first trimester tips. These go back right down to day one up until the second trimester. This is only my second baby so i'm not an expert, but just a few things that have helped me survive and get through the second hardest trimester and for some, the hardest!!! Okay... here it goes!!


1. Take Your Vitamins: I think we all know this one right?! This pregnancy I have been steering clear of sweets and sugar so I went for the gummy pre-natal vitamins this time around. It's like a get a little candy pass morning at night! ;) I use these prenatal vitamins

2. Find a good doctor: This one makes the list because I didn't have the best experience last time. This time i'm going with a midwife and i'm excited! Find someone YOU feel good about. It doesn't matter how anyone feels, only you!

3. Battle Nausea: Every pregnancy is different, but don't be too hard on yourself. Some days I want to sleep and be 100% unproductive. Some days i'm nauseous all day. I had carbs every day because it helped so much with the nausea. Another thing that I LOVED are Preggie Pops!! If nausea hit, I would pop one of those in and they saved me!! On top of that make sure to stay hydrated and have something to eat by your bed every morning. I found that if I ate while in bed and then got up, I was a lot less nauseous!! A granola bar, banana, anything that can sit by your bed overnight!! Last but not least, use sea bands!! I wore these a few times and I still plan on using them to help while traveling. They are great for easing the nausea!!! 

4. Sleep Comfortable: Around 9 weeks I already started to feel uncomfortable while sleeping so after lots of asking and research I purchased another Snoogle!! I had one before and got rid of it due to space. I used it for six months after I had the baby. It's the BEST. This time I found one even better!! This Snoogle is velour, so soft and I sleep like a baby now!! 

5. Wear your "Normal" Clothes: As long as possible I might add! I started hitting that awkward stage of being too big for my own jeans, but way too small for maternity jeans. So, I found these awesome Belly Band accessories to help! I can still wear my old clothes which is huge!!! 

6. Let it All Out: Hormones are going to be messing up your world. You will cry over the most random things, and you will have all sorts of feelings and emotions. It's OKAY. Let it all out. Eat the foods you want (mixing in the healthy stuff too lol), and prep your husband to be your personal servant for 9 months. I mean, it's the least they can do right (this comment was husband approved haha). Just know you aren't going crazy, it is the hormones. 

7. Download Apps: I have some apps that were SO helpful for my first pregnancy and SO helpful now!! My favorite most used app is called BabyBump (its purple with white outline of a babybump). It shows a countdown of where you are at, how many days left, and a tip EVERY DAY! These tips are so amazing because sometimes it's something I never knew! My favorite part is it shows your baby's size, what food the baby is closest to, and the baby's weight!! While that one is my all time favorite I also use What to Expect and also The Bump!! 

8. Take Care of Yourself: and don't feel bad for it. Take naps when you can, take baths, have girls weekends. Just know the love you put into YOU results in a happier and healthier Mama which only helps baby! Stress has shown to cause stress on the baby which I'm sure none of us want!! If you are finding something is causing you a lot of stress try to switch things around or find solutions to your stress!! 

I hope those were helpful!! Being pregnant is one of the craziest and best things we can experience so I think every bit of info helps!! 

Have a great week!!!
