First trimester of pregnancy requires ALOT of essentials in my opinion. It is the time of sickness and lack of energy.

Hi Friends,

I managed to have a day without morning sickness and finally sit down and share with you what I used to survive my first trimester. I get asked all the time if pregnancy with twins is different than a singleton and for me the answer has been yes. All symptoms and growth have been significantly faster and more intense than with my previous pregnancies. So what are my must haves?

1.Pink Stork Teas

I am a daily tea drinker kind of girl and when I became pregnant I also became a little fearful of my regular herbal teas. I was so happy to find Pink Stork’s tea selection. They were kind enough to send me some goodies including their morning sickness tea and calm tea to help this mama start her day off right. Not only are they safe for pregnancy they are also very tasty. I love being able to start my morning “normally”…whatever that means lol.

2.Morning Sickness Aide

I was prescribed Diclegis by my doctor to take as needed. However, it is very difficult to predict when I will need it. On those days where it creeps up on me I grab my Pink Stork Lozenges or Morning Sickness Tea to come to my rescue. Along with these products I make sure to have snacks on hand, specially saltines. They are my BFFs.

3. Antacids

Heart burn is something that most pregnant don’t deal with until their third trimester…I wish that was my case! I have purchased the biggest pack of Antacids I could find at my local Costco and carry an on-the-go container in my bag at all times.

4. Prenatal Vitamins

I started off with different vitamins but my body did not do well with the original ones I took. I made the switch to Rainbow One and made sure to get the prenatal and the DHA supplement as well. I love that they are plant based and come with so many other vitamins!

5.Maternity Pillow

My trouble sleeping kicked in around week 6 and I immediately hopped on Amazon to find myself one of those big maternity pillows. I ended up choosing a U-shaped pillow made of down and I have NO REGRETS! Although it is pricier than some of the other maternity pillows we all love it. I really do mean we-my kids and husband like to steal it when they can.

6.Naps

This is not something you can purchase or that everyone has the luxury to make happen. But my naps are ESSENTIAL! If I don’t take a 20 minute nap in the middle of the day I will be ready for bed at around 6:00 pm. If you can take a short nap. When I was pregnant with Lia I would be up for work at 4:30am and would make sure to nap during my breaks-anything helped!

    The antacids were huge for me with my second pregnancy. I had such bad reflux for 80% of the pregnancy. I recommend keeping them on hand too

    I used most of these during my 1st trimester and it set my pregnancy up to be blessed and blissful. I found it harder to incorporate healthy additives if I didn’t start early on in the pregnancy. Good recommendations here!

    Naps are a must!! I was so tired all the time my whole pregnancy. If I didn’t get enough sleep I was nauseous and very angry / emotional. I would say sleep in general is the most important thing throughout pregnancy.
