The last weeks before my pregnancy have been very busy although we are supposed to rest during those moments. One of the things that I did early on was getting ready my hospital bag. I think I was way too excited for that moment that I got ready way ahead of time. A list? You will find many online. But what did I actually use?
The preparation of “the suitcase” is done in two steps: essentials for mommy and essentials for baby.  Today, it’s all about Mommy needs:
– Super comfy pajamas ideally with an easy access top to facilitate breastfeeding. I enjoyed going to the Thyme maternity’s comfy section and I will share with you some of my favorite pieces.

– You will also need breastfeeding bras (especially after “milk flow”). I purchased two items from thyme maternity and I loved one so much that I went back and got 3 more. They come in very handy when breastfeeding outdoors and I also feel comfortable sleeping in it. (I also packed my nursing pillow and some nursing pads)

– Extra large and absorbing sanitary pads (for the first days at least) since baby won’t be the only one wearing diapers.
– Large comfortable underwear. I got mine from Walmart (Fruit Of The Loom).
– A complete bathroom kit. I know that some women shower at the hospital and put on makeup but I personally feel like I brought way to many unnecessary items. I barely used my face-wash, cream, lip balm, hair ties, deodorant, face mist and toothbrush.
– Things to snack on (obviously).
– Clothes to leave the hospital. Prepare maternity pants or an elastic pant ( I will include a selection of nice pants that I loved wearing while pregnant). I left the hospital with my zipper wide open. I thought I would fit into my boyfriend jeans but no luck there! I realized then that I have to give my body the time it needs to get back in place.

– Your phone charger.
Biggest thank you to my husband and my parents that were the single most important elements I brought with me to the hospital.
Don’t hesitate if you have any questions or doubts, I will be happy to help ?

Before I write anything, these pictures were taken a few weeks ago: my tummy is now bigger than it looks here. I’d like to take a moment to talk very quickly about all the changes that occur in the last trimester of pregnancy from a physical perspective. I receive a lot of love from you guys and that fills my heart with happiness. Nevertheless, let me tell you that it could look cute on pictures but it isn’t on a daily basis. Since my tummy is getting bigger and bigger, the baby it getting stronger and stronger and I am having more and more trouble moving and I become out of breath very fast. The result: I am often tired and do less things that I wished I would. This doesn’t stop me from staying positive and to think of the role of a mother: we “endure” everything and we don’t mind it, we just want our baby to be healthy.
Moving on, I discovered an English designer, Tiffany Rose, that makes the cutest little gems: everyday dresses, evening or ceremony gowns, you will find something for every occasion. What I loved the most from my experience is the choice and beauty of the different dresses and the quality of the materials. I can’t wait to wear it after my pregnancy, I am sure it would look just as great!

I’ve always been exited to have a pregnancy tummy but I’ve never realized that it could be this hard to dress up as I wish to! When the only thing I had to do was leaving my jeans button open, it’s easy, but when you have to take measures such as leaving the pants bracket wide open, it is a bit more challenging! You always have to wear a top that is long and wide enough to cover up the pants situation. And then, there is the issue with the tops that are no longer available or that are too short. In conclusion, I had to find something comfortable to wear, and I needed it like…yesterday!
Perfect timing! I was able to discover one of those rare boutiques that I know off that offers maternity clothing. You can find everything: something for the office, stylish and adapted jeans, cute everyday little dresses, ect. I have chosen a small selection of clothing pieces that I will share with you within the following weeks on my Instagram page. Here, I am wearing a dress that I instantly loved because I can picture it worn chic or as an everyday attire. It can also be worn after pregnancy. Thyme Maternity Thyme Maternity Thyme Maternity
