Top 50 Pregnancy EssentialsWhen asked to compile a list of the 50 most essential items for pregnancy, I was about 39 weeks pregnant and ready to pop with my second baby. Having gone through two pregnancies pretty much back-to-back and feeling like I had been pregnant for two years straight, it wasn't too hard to compile this list simply because these are all items that were extremely useful to me. I hope they prove useful to you, as well. If I've left out an item that you loved or found to be essential during your pregnancy, make sure to tell us here. - Stevee Curtis

I never truly appreciated a cracker until I became pregnant. During both my pregnancies, I kept them everywhere – on my nightstand, in my purse, in the car – except maybe the shower. The carbohydrates from crackers help boost your energy level and prevent you from becoming dehydrated as their saltiness and dryness stimulate thirst. Not only did they help with nausea, but they also helped relieve my insanely painful heartburn as well.
