Pregnancy Post - What I keep by my night side table

Hi Bellas,

I'm back with another video in my Pregnancy Journey.  I don't know about you, but I spend a lot of time in bed during pregnancy.  With all the stuff we have to go through - morning sickness, back aches, itchy skin and heart burn...there are definitely some must have items that I recommend you keep by your bedside to make it through pregnancy.  Check out my must-haves that I keep by my nightstand!

Check out the video!

Onto the Must Haves!
  • Water - Keep Hydrated!
  • Snack - Eating a little bit before you get up helps with morning sickness.  Also great for midnight cravings.  Saltines or crackers is a great option.
  • Unisom and B6 - Taken together they help combat morning sickness and help you sleep.  My nurse told me it's the exact same as the expensive prescription they give.
  • Belly Cream - I use Body Merry and Cerave- Place this on your itchy belly, boobs, or anywhere that needs relief.
  • Tums - A must have for acid reflux and heartburn.
  • Pregnancy Pillow - This changed my sleep for the better.  I sleep longer through the night and am able to sleep on my side like it's recommended.  My back also hurts less.
  • Aloe - If you get hot during sleep spray this on your feet to cool you down.
  • Tylenol - This is a safe pain reliever for you and the baby.  Great for headaches.
  • Benadryl - This is a pregnancy safe allergy medication and also helps you sleep.
  • Humidifier - Great for breathing and congestion that often comes with pregnancy rhinitis.  Also great to transfer to the nursery when the baby is born.
  • Tissues - For runny noses associated with pregnancy rhinitis or allergies.
  • Phone and phone charger - Obviously!
  • Sleep Mask - Helps you catch some extra z's such as afternoon naps when the sun is bright.
  • Ear Buds - Another sleep aid, especially great if you have a snoring husband like I do.  I prefer the ear putty version because it's more comfortable and stays put.
  • Labadorite - A mineral known for it's healing properties.  I picked it up at a crystal store and keep it by my bedside for good energy.
  • Prenatal Vitamins - Keeping it by your bed helps you to remember to take them.  I use the Vitafusion gummies.
  • Flonase - If you have intense allergies like I do, talk to your doctor about it.  I was recommended Flonase and it changed my life and especially helped with sinus congestion.
  • Qvar inhaler - If you experience shortness of breath like me, again talk to your doctor.  She prescribed this inhaler vs the one my husband uses.  I'm glad I checked with her.
  • Tic Tacs - My mom gave me this tip to suck on a a tic tac if you have morning sickness.  They're small so you won't accidentally choke on them at night, and it takes away the gross feeling in your mouth.
  • Preggie Pops - Another hard candy that is supposedly good for morning sickness nausea.
  • Makeup Remover Wipes - If you're too exhausted to wash your face and remove makeup at least you have this option to go to bed with clean skin.  
  • Facial Moisturizer - Keep some moisturizer by your bedside after you use your makeup wipes for a quick nighttime skincare routine.
  • Skindinavia Post Makeup Recovery Spray - Great to spray after you remove your makeup so moisturize your face quickly.  Also works as a great pick me up facial spray.
  • Aquaphor - The best lip moisturizer ever.  It also helps with skin irritations or burns.
  • Pillow Spray - This is a nice refreshing mist to calm you down and make your pillow smell great.  I picked up one with eucalyptus and mint, very calming.  I got mine at TJ Maxx for just $3.99.
I hope this list was helpful!  If you have any other must haves or recommended items for pregnancy, please leave them below!
