Pregnancy Products

I'll share my thoughts on pregnancy products and what I've really been enjoying so far. Here goes:

A. I attended a prenatal yoga class for the first time last night, and it was amazing. I regularly practice yoga and I must say there is a huge difference between going to a studio vs. doing a DVD in your home. Don't get me wrong, I have done several pregnancy yoga programs ON DEMAND during this pregnancy, but nothing compares to a classroom.

B. Bumble and Bumble Sunday Shampoo. I thought that when you are pregnant, you glow, have thick hair and the best nails of your life. This hasn't been the case for me. A week ago the back of my head was so greasy (after my daily shampoo), I couldn't run my fingers through my hair. I was concerned I'd have to shave my head and start over, it was that bad. I went to my stylist and she gave me some of this shampoo to try... and she told me I was washing my hair wrong and that I'd have to wash it twice and focus on the back of the head instead of the top of my head. It's been a life saver.

C. The App for: What to expect when you're expecting. This app lets me read about what is happening to the baby and my body everyday. Apparently there is a movie coming out soon, can't wait:

D. So Delicious Almond Coconut Bars. I might have blogged about this one before. They are that good, they are portion controlled and they taste like a frozen almond joy.

E. The Girlfriends Guide to Pregnancy. This was loaned to me and I read it in two days. It's pretty humorous and a nice break from the scientific reading that the doctor gives you. This book addresses more of the questions you might have, but don't want to bring up with your friends that are not pregnant or maybe your doctor.

F. Fruit flavored water. It gets so boring drinking water all the time. I've been throwing anything in my glass to perk up the flavor.

Someone let me borrow The Girlfriend's Guide to the First Year - and I really enjoyed it! I tried to read it beforehand, but it really hit home two months in when I picked it up again.
