Top 50 Pregnancy Essentials

When 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

Top 50 Pregnancy Essentials: From the Hips



From The Hips

Written by Babble’s very own Rebecca Odes and Ceridwen Morris, this book gets straight to the point about birthing, breastfeeding and parenting. This isn’t the stereotypical parenting book full of scientific evidence and clinical advice, and I found that extremely comforting, especially during my first pregnancy. If you need comfort only another mother can give you, check this out. (Disclaimer: They did not bribe or pay me to write this review.) Buy it from Amazon

    I had the same problem with the list ending at #36 but if you go up to the top and click on the “gear” link and select the first choice it brings you back to the list at #38 and the rest are visible from there.
