    Default What was(is) your "MUST HAVE" item during Pregnancy?

    During pregnancy, what item(s) did you (or do you!) find absolutely indispensable!? Was there something you simply couldn't live without (or at least preferred not to?) Have you found something that made your pregnancy woes more bearable? Found a product that helps you feel more connected to your baby?

    Share your personal faves and perhaps you'll be included in our upcoming article! When it comes to what pregnant moms need (or want) -- YOU are the expert!

    Two words: EXTRA PILLOWS. Or for some it would be one of those special pregnancy pillows. In any case at one point in time with EVERY pregnancy sleep was NOT going to happen without them.

    I actually had to have coffee with Faith. I had originally given it up before I got pregnant with her, but I started having massive headaches about 12 weeks that wouldn't go away. I tried EVERYTHING and the only thing that worked was a cup or two of coffee a day. OB said if it helps go ahead.

    The only "item" I can remember being indispensible was comfortable shoes.

    But in the non item column, patience would be my answer also. Not my own but definitely dh's.


    you can only reason with reasonable people
    the need (or good) of the MANY....
    outweigh the need (or good) of the FEW.....
    or the ONE

    there are only 2 people in this world who can hurt me....
    and we all live under the same roof

    To listen actively is to hear what is being said without inflicting your own opinion, judgement, or desire.
