Okay, okay, so I’m not pregnant anymore. I know. But I was very much pregnant just a few months ago. I went above and beyond the normal ~40 weeks being pregnant. I was pregnant for 43 weeks! So, I totally know all about third trimester pregnancy pains!
My #1 must have for ALL during the pregnancy, but especially the third trimester, is Young Living’s Gentle Baby blend. It’s wonderful! It’s calming, great to diffuse, and is great massaged into your growing belly!
Number two would be a belly band. Now, unfortunately, I never got one of these. And I SO wish I did! By the end my back and lower belly were so uncomfortable from the extra wight. My midwives kept telling me to get a belly band to wear while I was sleeping, and any major things I was doing. I should have listened to their advice!
Another great thing for third trimester sleep a boppy wedge pillow! I seriously (finally) got one the week Caleb was born, but it definitely helped my lower back pain in the night. Plus, there was less stress on my belly that way!
What were your favorite things during your third trimester? How did you survive?
