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

Heating pad

Neck and back pains are an inevitable symptom of pregnancy. Since you can’t rely on over-the-counter painkillers as you once did pre-pregnancy, I recommend a heating pad. The heat will relax your muscles and numb the pain. My heating pad has been a lifesaver for me through both my pregnancies. Go for one that has a self-regulating temperature – should you fall asleep, you won’t have to worry about getting a minor burn or hot spot.
