My Favorite Pregnancy Products

As The Bump editorial team's resident pregnant woman (I'm 20 weeks as of yesterday — halfway there!), I get the pretty awesome job of being a guinea pig for the latest products. After all, someone's got to see what works and what doesn't, right? So of course, I wanted to pass along a few of my favorites so far. What are your favorite pregnancy products?
PUBLISHED ON 05/13/2013

Belli All Day Moisture Body Lotion

This is the only thing I’ve tried that keeps away the dry-skin itches. $19, BelliSkinCare.com


RGB Cosmetics Nail Color

This line of polish prides itself on being free of DBP, formaldehyde and toluene. $16, RGBCosmetics.com for stores



A first-trimester must-have. It let me put off wearing maternity pants for longer. Wear it with your regular jeans unbuttoned. $28, IngridandIsabel.com


Nine Naturals Nourishing Shampoo

This shampoo smells amazing — like a high-priced non-pregnancy brand — and is all-natural with no parabens, sulfates or chemicals. The conditioner is great, too! $20, NineNaturals.com


Preggie Pop Drops

They’ve got a weird name, but these sour-fruit-flavored candies were a real pick-me-up when I was feeling queasy. $6, ThreeLollies.com


Knocked-Up Fitness DVD

Between work, my three-year-old and prepping for baby, I don’t have the time or the motivation to go to the gym. At-home workouts are much more doable. $40, Knocked-UpFitness.com


Mama Mio Tummy Rub

Does anyone else hate how long it takes to rub in some lotions and creams? You can quickly slather on this oil — it dries and sets fast. $35, MamaMio.com
