preggo products…

Just want to share my love for a few things that the sisters have enjoyed during this pregnancy…

WATER. Some people love it. They can’t get enough. I’m not like that. I have to remind myself to drink it (lots of it), and I’m picky about the containers from which I drink. I like ice-cold water, and I don’t want to taste the bottle/cup while I’m enjoying the beverage.

I’ve recently fallen in love with the lifefactory bottle, which I picked up at Miss Monkey’s sale. It holds 20oz of the good stuff, it’s glass/BPA-free, it’s pretty, and it’s dishwasher-safe. I picked white so I’d refrain from sharing with all of the messy/dirty boys in my house. This is Momma’s special water bottle! They have a baby/kid collection, too. I swooned when I saw all of the colors online!

SNAPPLE PEACH TEA. Speaking of fluid intake, I prefer something with a little more flavor. Like any respectable Southern girl, I love a good glass of sweet tea. My husband makes it to perfection.

Only recently have I started craving this peach stuff. I have no idea why I like it, and I know it’s probably full of sugar and other things I don’t need. But it says “all natural” on the bottle – that’s gotta count for something, right?!


BLOOD BUILDER. This pregnancy has really taken a toll on my iron/hemoglobin. I’d already added Floradix early on. During one lab draw last month, though, my HgB read three points under the minimum acceptable level.

My doctor mentioned “doing something about it” if it didn’t come up, motioning as if to give me a shot in my leg. No, thank you!! I got together with my midwife, and she recommended this supplement. My hemoglobin has risen almost two points since!

CHOCOLATE ICE CREAM. My relationship with ice cream seems to go in phases. We hadn’t kept it in the house for awhile, even at the beginning of this pregnancy. But for the last few months, it’s been really hard to get all of my calories in. I have a decreased appetite, and I feel full after only a few bites of a meal. My poor stomach is running out of room.
Chris has started scooping me a bowl of ice cream every night before bed. We try to buy the healthier kinds, but when it comes down to it… I need the fat/protein/carbs. Even my multiples book recommends ice cream as a daily snack. I’m not complaining!

  1. Hello there!! I just stumbled upon your blog from Miss James’ twitter.

    So far I am only one post in, but i have a feeling you are going to be my rainy sunday read for the day! :)

    I am also preggers!! Just one in my oven, but i am almost 31 weeks. Pretty close. ;)

    I look forward to reading more about your pregnancy and getting a few last minute tips out of it.

    If you get the chance you can pop over and check out my tumblr. Nothing too special, but im working on getting down a routine of blogging on a regular basis.

  2. You should buy coconut milk icecream! You probably know this but coconut is supposed to be great for milk production. Ugh I just thought of your poor breasts with twins.
    A better idea: Have your hubby buy you an ice cream maker. Eric got me one as my baby shower gift. <3love.

  3. oooh man, i haven’t thought about snapple peach tea in forrrever. it used to be my favorite, i think it’s something about the distinct aftertaste (which is kinda chemically? if i remember right. i’m weird i guess!) and ice cream was seriously my bff during and after pregnancy. the doctors told me to eat a bowl every night so that i’d continue to gain weight and it was the most awesome dr advice i’ve ever had to follow. :)
