Try this one or this one. I know the second one is a tankini, but it looks pretty modest, so I thought I'd include it. I had a tough time finding swimsuits that fit pre-pregnancy (size 16 with huge boobs, often end up needing to get different sized tops and bottoms), but I was extremely happy with this brand when I ordered it. Super comfortable, covers love handles and doesn't roll up, even though it's a tankini, and the top is actually pretty supportive without having an underwire. It's even pretty flattering I think. Got the blue and white striped one for myself.

I was told I've got low iron and I should start taking iron twice a day. I did a lot of research and found this one:

Salus-Haus - Floradix Floravital Iron & Herbs Yeast Free - 8.5 oz

It has great reviews on r/babybumps and I figured it was worth a try. It's been seriously great! It tastes a bit gross, but if you chase it with orange juice (make sure it's not fortified with calcium) you can't taste it. Also vitamin C helps the body absorb iron. I feel freaking fantastic about 30 minutes after taking a dose, like, my heart rate and blood pressure go down, I have tons of energy, I don't feel sick at all. It's been great. And so far, no constipation, no upset tummy. When I went to my next appointment after being told to start iron, my midwife recommended this too, and said you either order it on Amazon or find it in health food stores. Sure said that is the best one she's ever seen, because it's so gentle.

Sorry for that word dump, I just recently went through this. I know the hard to breath feeling sucks a lot.

I bought: "My Child's Health Record Keeper (Log Book)"

For myself and my friend. It looks like it would be pretty nifty, i opened mine and its pretty thorough without being bulky and should be able to fit in any diaper bag easily. It's the only thing I've actually packed in my hospital bag so far rofl

I actually got a short one, not a long one. And it's not exactly the material I thought it would be, it's a little slinkier than I wanted and a little thinner than I wanted but it's cute. I figure labor makes people kind of sweaty anyway, right?

And honestly, I might just get the LL Bean robe if I were you. My other robe is one from Lands End that used to be my moms when I was a kid. I sort of took it over as a teenager and have yet to relinquish it. It's still in amazing condition and I'm 30 years old. LL Bean is quality merch. 20 years for 60 bucks seems okay to me.

I used this one and this one. The first one was my favorite by far. I ended up failing HypnoBirthing because I didn't practise enough or commited to the excercises, but the book and audio files gave me peace when my mind was a turmoil. I really enjoyed those moments and happy vizualisation!

I'm just not rigourous enough for the training on my own part ;P

I just got the same book as a gift! We also got several books by Chris Ferrie that are all "[field of science] for babies", which seem neat. The only big must-have for me is The Monster at the End of This Book, which was my favorite as a kid. I just read a whole article about it that made me even more excited to read it to my kid. Thankfully, I have our family's copy from before I was even born, so that's good to go. My childless older brother thinks I'm a thief for taking it because it's got his name in it - ha!

I recommend an enema bulb! It's really old school, but my oh my. It never fails with me. I've had one for like two years now, totally feel like a hippy but my doctors say that's better than laxatives which can irritate the bowels and cause addiction. But what do I know! Stomachs are weird!
I'm so glad for your touchdown! I wish you many more!

u/deadasthatsquirrel · 1 pointr/OctoberBumpers2017

Just the same Freya that I wear normally, but now in the correct size for my pregnant body!

I assumed I'd need to get a non-wired bra or some other form of specialist maternity bra, but /r/ABraThatFits disagrees and just says to do the normal measuring for your current size and make sure to pick a bra that rates high for comfort. I got measured at Bravissimo years ago and I love this style of Freya for everyday wear, but my old size had started cutting in at the band and my boobs were spilling out over the top! :D

I originally had the snoogle but exchanged it for the back and body pillow, which I like much better. As you can see, this pillow hugs you on both sides. It's been hot as hell here lately and the pillow hasn't made anything worse. I sleep with a fan pointed toward me and haven't woken up overheating. I highly recommend this one if you toss and turn a lot like I do.

u/lightningface · 1 pointr/OctoberBumpers2017

We got this one because it's pretty neutral but still cool looking. My husband is super into backpacks so I let him do most of the research.

u/PinkMoonrise · 3 pointsr/OctoberBumpers2017

I'm Canadian and car seat blankets are a pretty standard thing here.

They stay attached to the seat and the straps are threaded through specific holes. They also make them for some strollers. Add some mittens and a toque and you're good for keeping warm in a car seat.

This is on my list even though a rectal thermometer is more accurate, getting a ballpark temp without diaper diving every time will be nice:

Kinsa Sesame Street Elmo Smart Ear Thermometer

Go ahead and buy stock in this stuff:

Boudreaux's Butt Paste Diaper Rash Ointment - Maximum Strength - Contains 40% Zinc Oxide - Pediatrican Recommended - Paraben and Preservative-Free - 4 Ounce

I really want one of these to live in postpartum:

Kindred Bravely The Angelina Ultra Soft Maternity & Nursing Nightgown Dress (Cabernet, XL)

Tiny infant leather moccasins! Not because they're walking, but because they'll need more foot insulation than just socks in the winter months.

u/HornlessUnicorn · 1 pointr/OctoberBumpers2017

I ended up with this one, mostly because the reviews were good and my husband really liked it. It need up being only $51 on prime day, but I really didn't want to spend more than $50 since I feel like I already have so many bags. Main selling points were slot for phone/wallet, external wipes holder, insulated bottle holders, and stroller straps.

u/clearlyrambling · 1 pointr/OctoberBumpers2017

The heat is killing me too! I had a friend recommend one of these cool towels (she is due in Oct too) and said it's completely worth it - she basically lives with it on her neck now.

u/MlsRx · 1 pointr/OctoberBumpers2017

It's actually the opposite- I feel like the older my son has gotten, the more I have to carry around (he's 28 months). I have at least one ball, a book, a toy car, misc. other toys if those aren't what he wants and we are in a situation where I really really need him to be quiet, around 4-5 pouches, other kinds of snacks, maybe a change of clothes, diapers, wipes, sippy cup, spoon, ibuprofen, sometimes a change of clothes, kleenex, boogie wipes, etc. When he was a baby it was A LOT more simple. We carry a backpack, no idea how it would work if you were carrying the kid on your back but the Fawn diaper backpacks someone else mentioned also convert into a messenger bag.

edit: this one also has carrying handles, which I really like because you aren't always in a position to swing it up onto your back or are squeezing through tight spaces

Hopefully this works, I haven't tried to link from mobile before Star Trek Book
