Maternity essentials

Now that I am a million months pregnant, I am looking back and making an inventory of good/bad purchases I made. Here are what I consider to be good investment, "buy the day the stick turns blue," maternity essentials:
I mentioned this before in my what to buy a pregnant lady cor Christmas post. It really covers the basics so you will be comfortable and stylish through your pregnancy.

Probably the best investment for your pregnancy. A nightie is comfy and key in your sleep wear wardrobe when you have several bathroom trips a night.

As I said in my maternity jeans post, good jeans are one of the best investment you will make. Don't try to make it through without them; do yourself a favor, go to the shops, and find yourself the perfect pair asap.

Do you really need maternity tights? YES. You won't need them in the first trimester but you will be really glad to have some that actually fit your body later in your pregnancy.

A blazer is the perfect layering piece so you can stay warm but look chic and professional.

This is kind of a no brainer. Do I really need to explain?

You need a dress that is simple, comfortable, and flattering so that you can accessorize it and make it fierce.

My wrap cardigan has become absolutely key to my pregnant wardrobe. It is so versatile to keep you comfy and warm. PLUS this is a piece that could be part of your regular wardrobe as well your pregnancy and nursing wardrobe.

Maxi dresses are great for layering but they also bring the glamour. If you want to make an impression at a holiday or maybe your baby shower, then work it in a classic floor length dress.

Ok, don't buy this the minute the stick turns blue, but buy it in your second trimester for sure. Do not try and wear your old bras, unless you really want to punish yourself for some reason. Your chest and cup size will go up steadily through your whole pregnancy, so get something you can grow into.
Sturdy fashionable flats are absolutely essential. You gotta find some great shoes so you don't look frumpy without your heels.
