PREGNANCY : PREGNANT BELLY ESSENTIALS INCLUDING SUPPORT BELTS AT MOTHERHOOD MATERNITY STORE
PREGNANCY is such an amazing time for a woman! As your belly grows during pregnancy, here are my top recommendations of items that are pregnant belly essentials to help you.
These are the pregnant belly essential items that I know to be very helpful to me and I hope that these pregnant belly essential items will be helpful to you too.
1. The first pregnant belly essential item is the Bella Band. This Bella Band is a band that allows you to continue wearing your regular pant size, unbuttoned or unzipped while you are pregnant. Placing the Bella Band over the waist of the pants will extend the sizing and keep the pants from falling down.
The Bella Band is terrific to use during pregnancy and it is available at bellablumaternity.com
With use of the Bella Band, you will definitely find yourself able to wear your pre-pregnancy wadrobe for an extended period of time. In later months of the pregnancy, you will still want to have some maternity pants, skirts and dresses.
2. Less expensive at $16.98 but also less effective is the Tummy Sleeve, another band available at Motherhood Maternity (motherhood.com). It does not offer as snug a fit as the Bella Band and does not keep the pants up quite as well. The Bella Band is definitely my top recommendation between the two.

3. My third recommendation is a pregnancy support belt. These pregnancy support belts can be quite pricey but I was able to get one for a reasonable price at motherhood.com
The pregnancy support belt is different from the band that will keep your pants up during pregnancy. This pregnancy support belt offers support to your lower back and belly during pregnancy. You will definitely feel a difference between wearing one and not wearing one.
When you wear the pregnancy support belt, you will feel a much higher level of comfort and will have less difficulty standing or walking for periods of time.

Creams & lotions
4. Finally, it is important to use a rich lotion or oil frequently on your belly as it stretches. Cocoa butter has been the popular salve for preventing stretch marks but any thick gentle moisturizer or body oil will do.
