YOUR PREGNANCY ESSENTIALS
If this is your first baby, it is likely that your bump will be very discreet during your first trimester. Now is a good time to think about the investment pieces and prepare for the forthcoming changes to your body. Morning sickness may have you feeling worse for wear but there are plenty of key preparations to consider during this early stage of pregnancy. Your skin is sensitive during pregnancy, your hormones are going crazy and you deserve to feel comfortable!

Invest in luxurious jersey dresses, cashmere sweaters, expertly crafted maternity jeans that will grow with your bump and speciality maternity and nursing bras. Your band and cup size will grow during pregnancy, it's important to take advantage of bra fittings. Every woman is different but you can expect your band size to increase by up to two sizes and your cup size can range growing 2-3 cup sizes! All too often, I hear first-time Mums who did not invest in the foundations but learn that comfort and support is essential for their second pregnancy. Invest early - buttery soft materials and supportive clothing will make the world of difference to your mood!
An A-Line silhouette for dresses and tops will disguise your bump until you're ready to share your pregnancy news.
Don't forget to use stretch mark oil throughout your pregnancy - apply this religiously morning and night to avoid stretch marks.
