Let’s be honest … growing tiny humans is exhausting. While a few mom-to-be’s were lucky enough to have a breezy journey, according to American Pregnancy Association more than 50% of pregnant women experience morning sickness (that can last all day or throughout the pregnancy). The first trimester is the most challenging for most women. This is the stage when all changes happen almost simultaneously. From hormonal change, emotional change, and up to a few physical changes start taking place. Some women can cope or adapt to these changes pretty quickly, but some (like me) doesn’t.
For those of you who had been following my updates, you’d know I’ve been battling my way through this journey from the very beginning. Getting here wasn’t easy. Having to go through #ivf was challenging enough … I swear, being pregnant shouldn’t be this hard. And to help those who are having a hard time coping, Bump Boxes came up with Pregnancy Gift boxes designed to pamper on all trimesters all the way up to your little one’s birthday!
The Bump Boxes team sent me their 1st Trimester Pregnancy Gift Box to check it out and share my personal experience. While each box contains different products, there are a few repeat products that have proven to be a survival kit “must-have” to help any mom get through her 1st-trimester woes. The following products are what came with my box.
Bumplife ❝ Mom Needs Her Beauty Sleep ❞ Sleep Mask
The sleep mask directly solves my problem when it comes to taking my naps in between the day as my tummy grows. This magically turns any hour to night time and helps me achieve a much more relaxing sleep. It’s soft, comfortable and snug. Truly amazing.
No Mo Nausea Band
Nausea is one hell of a nightmare to go through along with the growing list of pregnancy woes. I’ve been there and barely managed to get by. Each waking day felt like the world is spinning. I can’t get any food down. I could hardly take any fluids. None of the medications worked. Even my doctor suggested trying out nausea band or bracelets … and while I am not completely sure what really helped, I know for a fact that this morning sickness remedy gave me some form of natural relief. What I totally love about this particular product is that it uses a proven combination of acupressure and aromatherapy to help relieve the problem without having to resort to chemicals or medicines.
Glow Organics 9 Energize Bath Bomb
Pregnancy makes anyone a bit lazy, right? I mean, who wouldn’t be? When you’re literally growing a tiny human(s) inside your belly. For those who need the extra boost of energy for the day, this bath bomb will definitely pave the way! This bath bomb is made from a refreshing mixture of lemon, orange, as well as white grapefruit organic essential oils to help achieve that instant boost. On top of that relaxing aroma, these oils can also alleviate irritated skin from all that skin-stretching that your belly is going through. Talk about a multi-tasking product that can work wonders! Oh, and that’s not all, it’s also organic and natural!
Acure Energizing Body Lotion
This uplifting lotion is the perfect skin nourishment to help kick off the funk while restoring brightness and rejuvenating from within. Its non-greasy formula is vegan, sulfate free, paraben free, and most of all it is also cruelty-free! You can be sure this beauty is derived from organic ingredients or materials. Being pregnant is already rough, no need to have your skin look like it too!
Blum Naturals Daily Cleansing & Makeup Remover Towelettes
This new line of cleansing product is the perfect addition to any mom-to-be’s beauty arsenal. We all know the hormonal change by itself can wreck havoc on our skin, we don’t need to aggravate it further with harsh products that are infused with harmful chemicals. To get that fresh, radiant skin, these soft towelettes will surely get the job done while using natural and organic botanicals that are proven to be safe during pregnancy. Their products are plant, sugar, and naturally derived that leaves the skin feeling naturally clean, fresh and pure all day long.
Preggie Pop Drops (not pictured)
As I have mentioned at the beginning of this post as well as my pregnancy updates on social media, I have been battling morning sickness throughout my pregnancy. When this box arrived, I couldn’t help but reach for the Organic Preggie Pop Drops right away. The drug-free flavored drops really helped alleviate nausea and other symptoms that come along with it. Before I even noticed, I emptied the container and didn’t even have a chance to take snaps or include it on my photography for my review.
The flavors are sour raspberry, sour lemon, and green apple. While they may not sound delectable for those of you who have a sweet tooth, these assortments are an instant life-safer and a great treat for anyone who is suffering from morning sickness.
