Favorite Three Subsequent Pregnancy Maternity Must Haves

Each pregnancy is different — the first time around, I paged through week-by-week books. The second was spent researching baby brands. This time, I've got a few favorite products that are practical and more mama focused. I'd recommend them to anyone who is expecting, it just took me this long to discover the goodies!

Body Bare Full Coverage Bra ($30). While boobs swell during a first pregnancy, they enter the Dolly Parton phase early during a third. This comfortable bra gives my chest the lift it needs after nursing two babies and is seamless under shirts.

Mama Mio Tummy Rub ($35). I don't know if I can repair the damage that has already been done, but I'll do my best to keep more stretch lines from appearing on my burgeoning belly. The paraben free rosehip, wheatgerm and borage oil potion smells incredible and isn't oily at all.

Ingrid and Isabel Belly Leggings ($52). These snug fitting, super soft pants may be a bit on the pricey side, but they support your stomach and allow you to stay in your dresses even once your stomach takes up the hem. And, paired with a tunic or sweater, they allow you to breathe!

i bought the ingrid & isabel everywear pants when i was pregnant and honestly they were a huge disappointment. the material is this weird material that catches on everything and attracts lint and every other kind of dirt/dust. they were okay the first couple of wearings but then started to look so dirty and ragged that i stopped wearing them. they are also very, very long...good if you are tall, bad if you aren't, like me.

At a local maternity boutique, they also highly recommended the ingrid and isabel everywear pants. I don't know that I'd personally wear leggings so the other option seemed better for me as they look more like a normal pant - plus with the extra waistband material, they're so much more comfy than my standard old navy yoga pants.

plus_2_kid, these are soft, but they are also a tight knit material that supports your stomach and legs. I thought the same thing you did until I tried them out.

I like the idea of these leggings for the extra space around the growing middle. They look so comfy.

Lil, how are those leggings any different from run of the mill leggings? I have 2 pairs of Luna Chix leggings ($9.95 ea) that work fine so far (25 weeks and counting).
