11 Maternity Wardrobe Basics Made in the USA

~ There are affiliate links in this post. Please see the affiliate disclosure. ~

CONGRATULATIONS!  Expecting a new baby envelopes a new Mama and Papa with so many emotions.  Once the elation of an ever-changing life settles, the preparation begins and so does the unsettling feeling in Mama's mid-section.  To help ease some of the adventure into the world of pregnancy brain, here is a list of some basic maternity wardrobe must-haves, all made in the USA.

1.  Wrap dress
2.  Spanx Power Mama Shaper
3.  Cardigan: A maternity cardigan is more practical during the winter since you will be covering up more than any other season.  Otherwise, you might be able to get away with your pre-pregnancy cardigan.
4. Yoga Pants: Comfort, comfort, comfort!

Soulful Sound Waves Dress
5The Ultimate Maternity Belt:  The belt provides support for lower back pain - and you will get it.  (Think yoga cat pose)
6.  Maternity Jeans - Boot Cut: These complement any body type.  The boot-cut balances out your glowing mid-section.

7.  Maternity Belly Band: When you're in the home stretch of your ever-expanding bump, this Belly Band acts as an extender to your top when everything doesn't seem to fit anymore.
8.  Belly Bandit Tummy Wrap: Great for postpartum use.
9. Stockings / Tights: They help with swelling and tired legs and prevent varicose veins.  Remember no knee-high socks or stockings.
10.  Maxi Dress: A maxi dress forgives all, even during the last trimester when leg-crossing is both a near-impossibility and a no-no.
11.  Comfortable [Flat] shoes: A pair of sneakers can be included in the choice for comfortable shoes, especially for swelling feet.  If sneakers are not an option for you, try these Oka b Taylor Flats.

Gender Reveal

Our baby officially arrived.....well some time ago, but it's been a while since I posted anything here. God blessed us with a bouncing baby boy!!  We had him at home.  YES!  You read that correctly....a Home Birth!  It was an amazing experience. 

Those first few days and weeks proved challenging, as any postpartum time will be.  We had to go in for an echocardiogram and daily weight checks.  All three kids caught a cold.  It was very scary to hear our newborn with a cold.  Hearing a newborn choke is something I hope that none of you ever experience.  At one point, I slept about two hours in a 48-hour period because I was giving him saline drops and constantly suctioning him.  I was afraid of falling asleep and not hearing him if he needed me.  We made it through all of the illnesses.  Then, my computer broke.  I was putting together the Thursday blog hop and my computer just stopped working.  All of the proverbial balls that I was juggling just came tumbling down.  I took it as God telling me that I needed to take a break.  I decided to exhale and enjoy my new life.

I have written this post in my mind so many times and wasn't sure how to start back up.  Then it occurred to me to just write it.  A reader once told me that my regular readers would always be here to read my blog.  That encouraged me to write this after so much time off.  My goal in writing this blog has always been to give you a place to find positive encouragement.  I appreciate that I have received it from you.

As for positive encouragement: for those of you that emailed me privately, asking how I was doing - THANK YOU!!  It is humbling to know that with all of the blogs, websites, and day-to-day activities going on in your days that you took the time to see how my family and I were doing.  Again, thank you.  I appreciate you beyond words.

I truly hope you will come back and see what is in store.  What has been going on with you?  I would love to hear from you.
