6 Best Pregnancy Products!

So I've come to the conclusion that my body doesn't like working/ walking or anything which means I need to stand up for longer than 20 minutes at a time.

My first day back at work yesterday from my maternity leave with Lily (I will only be there for around 12 weeks before I go off again on maternity leave for bump) and my hips, bump and head did not like me standing for a good 6 hours constantly.

So I've been looking into bump bands as my SPD is starting to flair up again.

For anyone unaware what SPD is it stands for Symphysis Pubis Dysfunction and basically means it hurts to walk, stand, sit, bend or move anything around your public bone.
I'll post a more informative link here.

This got me thinking into what I would say the 6 best pregnancy products are.

I couldn't live without my maternity bra! It has been a life saver! Super comfortable and even doubles up as a nursing bra.
I would highly recommend this Jojomamanbebe Maternity Bra for the very affordable price of £13!

These maternity bump bands are also a must if you don't want to spend a fortune buying lots of new maternity tops! Stick to your old tops (or buy a bigger size) and pair them up with one of these so if your top rides up when you get a bigger bump... voila! No belly on show!
I have chosen this pack of 3 Newlook Bump Bands for £9.99!

I'm a skinny jeans kinda girl and these over the bump skinnies are amazing! Unlike some that I have tried, the band doesn't fall down over time, the knees stay exactly where they should and keeps bump all nice and snug!
These H&M Skinny Jeans are a nice price at £24.99 too! But watch out for sales as I picked mine up in the sale for £10!

Bio Oil is another of my favourite pregnancy products! Although not aimed specifically at pregnancy, massaging this into bump every night before bed is lovely, relaxing, helps prevent stretchmarks and smells amazing! 
Although it can be bought from many places I've linked to Boots, 200ml Bio Oil for £13.33

Next would be my pregnancy pillow! I sleep with it every night, even when I'm not pregnant! There are many different options on the market for this however I have found my favourite to be Kit for Kids cuddle me pregnancy pillow. It's super long, very comfortable and comes with a lovely designed pillow case.
I would recommend the Kit for Kids Cuddle Me Pregnancy Pillow from Argos for £39.99

Finally, my ALL TIME favourite pregnancy product has got to be my Peppermint Reviving Leg Gel from Bodyshop!
A little bit of this massaged into you calves, ankles and feet after a long day is something to look forward to! Especially in the later months of pregnancy when water retention or swelling can hit.
This is highly recommended by myself for anyone suffering with achy feet, legs or restless leg syndrome in pregnancy (or not even pregnant). It smells lovely and I don't think I would manage most nights without this!
The Bodyshop Peppermint Reviving Leg Gel has got to be my number 1 pregnancy product! Even more so for £7!
