Aside from the basics vitamins, milk, etc. these were the Top 5 must-haves that made my pregnant days easier :
1. Maternity Pillow
Purchased this as early as first trimester to really make use of it. Aside from my partner, this was my bestfriend throughout my preggie life. I like how it supported my back while lying down or sleeping. Yep, no back pains!
2. BP Apparatus
One of the things that I really wanted to avoid was any complications during pregnancy. An elevated or high blood pressure, elevated blood sugar level, etc., so self-monitoring my blood pressure at least twice a day was my hobby.
3. Doppler Fetal Monitor
This is a hand-held ultrasound transducer to detect your little one’s heartbeat while he/she’s still in your tummy. My partner & I were so paranoid that we tend to panic whenever I couln’t feel movements of the baby inside, knowing we could still hear her heartbeat at normal range especially during the last trimester. Using the doppler put us at ease.
4. A pair of comfy slip-on
Even before, I am already fascinated with flats, but needed a new pair with +1 size when I was preggie (blame the swollen feet). Wearing flats while your pregnant is a choice made not just for fashion’s sake but for safety as well.
I had a good appetite esp. for sweets when I was pregnant. I kept on asking my partner to buy me theeeeseee and that🤣 until a friend of mine told me about this app where you will only choose food from a certain merchant using the app and they will have it delivered at your place. So easy to use that it saved not just mine but my partner’s time & effort as well🤣 (I asked him to buy something once in a while tho).
So that’s it! If you want to ask for more deets…feel free to comment below!😉
