Mommy Must Haves

Besides the end, I felt like my pregnancy was pretty laid back without too much fuss or trouble. HOWEVER,  I could not have made it with out these few Mommy Must Haves!

Tum's Refreshers: I love the small "fit in your purse"size of the container and the strong mint flavor, which really helps with the after dinner (or any meal/any time) acid re-flux.

Red Rose Decaf: I'm not a coffee drinker, so I wouldn't call myself a caffeine junkie- but I LOVE LOVE LOVE my cup of tea (or 2 or 3 or who's counting). Red Rose Decaf is still full flavored, but not bitter. I love Red Rose brand in general but their decaf really is the best the out there.

Tervis Goldfish Tumbler: As a soon to be mommy, and well as long as you are breastfeeding, water is essential. It gets boring after awhile, but this fun tumbler kept me motivated to drink lots and lots of water.

H&M Slim Jeans: I LOVED THESE JEANS... I still wear them! I loved that the fabric still felt like denim, with a little stretch. They have a normal waist instead of some other awful maternity pants where there isn't actually a waste band, just really bad elastic gathered along the top. They are also a really great price. I'm a mommy on a budget and spending $200+ for jeans that I will only wear for a few months is not an option.
Bio Oil: They say stretch marks are hereditary, I didn't want to take any chances and rubbed bio oil on my stomach religiously every day. I didn't get any stretch marks on my stomach, but my boobs and butt missed the memo. That being said the Bio Oil has completely diminished my boob marks and the butt ones are slowly melting away. So maybe stretch marks aren't 100% hereditary and this oil really works and kept them off my stomach ;)

Let me know your Mommy Must Haves- there could be a round 2 for me?
