Therapy Massage Bar from Lush

I rub this bar on after i shower to help with elasticity. It also helps minimize scars so i plan to use it after the baby arrives to eliminate any stretch marks i may develop.

Ribbed Back Open Cardigan

I wear this cardigan all the time. I love that it is not maternity so i can wear it after i deliver, but since it doesn't button, i can get as big as i want and still fit into it.

Birth Announcements from

I love the birth announcements on this website, and a great feature they offer is pre shipped envelope, so you can address them before the baby is born and life is chaotic. Just order the cards after the baby arrives, stuff them, and mail!
