Maternity Must Haves: 5 Picks For Week 19

I started week 19 today. I can’t believe how quickly this is all going! Here are the top 5 things I need to keep me going….

Red Mango – yes. Red Mango. When I’m not pregnant, I opt for blackberries and pineapples. But now that I am baking a baby, my body is asking for Fruity Pebbles and pineapples. Go figure!

A free flowing dress. Sometimes I don’t want to wear stretch pants / jeans. The elastic around the center of my belly is too much to handle for so many hours in a row. This dress from Liz Lange for Target is affordable and fashionable.

Something with stripes. Come on! It’s the one time in your life where horizontal stripes are not the enemy. Embrace it! Here’s a cute top from Pea in the Pod.

Dry Shampoo. I did a review on Not Your Mother’s here.

The Bra Back Extender. Have you heard of this yet? Allows you to keep using your bras!! Love it!

Do you have any maternity favorites that you’d like to share?? Would love to hear.

  1. I have two maternity favorites I’m obsessed with this time around – I’m in LOVE with the Bravado! Designs Essential tank in black and white (purchased on 30% off) and the Gap Pure Body long sleeve v-neck t-shirts. So soft, so cozy, keeps their shape. You MUST order both today!! Life changing!
