7 Items Every Newly-Pregnant Woman Needs to Have On Hand

7 Items Every Newly-Pregnant Woman Needs to Have On HandOh what an exciting time being pregnant is! During the first trimester, being pregnant is a battle of being excited about what is to come and trying to survive all the symptoms that come with it.

Counting down the first trimester where the big symptoms are running rampant can be all you can do to survive it. Between the energy-drain fatigue, the all-day sickness and bloating — it can be hard to stay positive about the experience.

I promise you it does (usually) get better and having been through it a few times, I have a few tricks up my sleeve for surviving the first trimester!

Click through for 7 items I think every newly-pregnant woman should always have on hand:
