Pregnancy Essentials: Third Trimester: 27 - 40 Weeks of Pregnancy

It's time for my final pregnancy essentials post. I'm over the moon that little Ava Mae is finally here! These are all the things that helped me through the third trimester of my pregnancy!

Pregnancy Essentials: Third Trimester 27 - 40 Weeks of Pregnancy 

Massage Oil - Perfect for those back rubs to help with back ache. I have been using the NAIF Soothing Baby Oil which I picked up at The Baby Show. It is really moisturising and works great as a massage oil. 

Birthing Ball  - I honestly don't know how I would of coped without my birthing ball. I found sitting on it really helped with the back pain, bouncing helped with the discomfort from Braxton Hicks and  sitting rotating around in circles helped to get baby down into pelvis and engaged.

Hospital Bag - Having my hospital bag packed and ready really helped with the anxiety and nerves of baby's arrival. I wrote a list of everything I thought I would need and tried to pack as little as possible not wanting to overflow my little suitcase. I was told to pack enough bits and bobs for myself and baby for five days.

Maternity Pads - I found discharge increased towards at end of the third trimester as well as passing bits of my mucus plug. I starting wearing maternity pads and found Wilko Mum to Be Maternity Towels were not only really comfortable to wear but cheap at 95p a pack.

Facial Cleansers - I started to get outbreaks of acne during the last trimester of pregnancy and found using the Lush Ultrabland Cleanser really helped. This cleanser works really well at removing make up too and is very soothing on angry, irritated skin.

What did you find helped you through the third trimester of pregnancy?
