Ah, the second trimester. In my opinion, it’s the most lovely part of pregnancy. My nausea has subsided, I’m sleeping really well (only getting up to pee once!) and the number of pimples on my face has drastically dwindled. Plus, I finally look unmistakably pregnant. No one is looking at me and wondering if I just went overboard with the yummy food during the holidays–I now, at 21 weeks, look straight-up pregnant. I love it!
If you are like me and have had complicated pregnancies or suffered miscarriages, then you might hold off on treating yourself to certain pregnancy gear until you were really sure your pregnancy was a GO! Your second trimester is a great time to relax a bit, enjoy your pregnancy and, yes, do some damage on your next credit card bill. Treat yourself! You’re growing a whole human inside your body!!!
Below is my list of essential gear for a happy second trimester! (These would also make great gifts for someone, too!)
