Think of it this way, no PMS for the next 40 weeks.
But just in case a PMA is still hard to achieve, here are four helpful finds to put your mind at ease.
Babies are cute. Babies are expensive. Strike a balance with LearnVest’s free ten-day digital Baby on Board Bootcamp. The financial experts cover topics from budgeting for baby’s diapers to 529 savings accounts for college. Yes, college.
The screen time debate will be raging in your house soon enough. In the meantime, protect your growing baby with a Belly Armor blanket ($69). The petite cover limits exposure to everyday radiation (think phones and laptops) — just lay it over your lap while you’re plugged in. Although research surrounding the risks from electromagnetic fields isn’t definitive, we figure why not?
If breastfeeding has you worried, relax. Take it as it comes. If you decide the boob isn’t for you (no judgment), try the Bosom Bandit support wrap ($40). Designed to help reduce milk production and the pain of engorged breasts, it includes reusable cooling gel packs. It’s the modern-day answer to the cabbage leaf.
The shape of your back fat is not the shape of things to come. We promise. Especially if you use a Blanqi ($68). The pregnancy body shaper smooths, lifts, supports, and lets you wear your favorite bra — no matter the size. The extra-thin garment is made of moisture-wicking material, so you feel light and airy.
Yes, light and airy. Stay positive.
