5. Maternity Shapewear
This shapewear is not meant to hide/suppress your bump. It is meant to support it and boy does it! Dependent on the material, it can be worn as undergarments or even just with a tee for a biker short look. These rise really high above your stomach in an effort to support your back and growing bump.
An essential for everyone woman, your doctor may prescribe you with some or you may opt for over the counter. Whichever way you go just ensure your option has folic acid and you take it daily, unless stated otherwise by your doctor.
7. Water bottle
Having a water bottle helps ensure you drink enough water throughout your day. Your amniotic fluid is directly related to your liquid intake. It is best to drink as much water a day as possible. Try to fill up a 32 oz. bottle 3 times a day, once at breakfast, lunch and dinner. If successful that is 92 oz. day!

Leggings, oversized t-shirts, and maternity jeggings -- whatever makes you most comfortable is what matters.
This will easily help you soothe any leg, neck or back cramps as you are on your pregnancy journey.
