Newly Pregnant Gift Guide

Gifts for the New Mom-to-be


Updated June 27, 2014

Being newly pregnant is exciting! You want to celebrate, enjoy your pregnancy and do something pregnancy related. But other than announcing your pregnancy and perhaps some morning sickness, there isn't a lot of pregnancy related stuff going on outwardly.

These are really cool and help a mom-to-be capture her pregnancy all nine months. These are made to be used for any type of clothing or paper. Just peel, stick and photo!

The BellaBand is great for early pregnancy because there are so many reasons that you might use it, the most common one being that in between time when your pants don't quit fit but maternity clothes don't fit well either. It also provides some support for your belly. You can hide it under your clothes or let it peak out as a layered look.

Psi Bands

These bands are designed to provide relief for morning sickness. You strap them on and they look cute, all while providing acupressure to a certain spot to help you avoid morning sickness. You can learn more about this and other morning sickness relief products.

This is a great tool to help you remember all of the things that are going on. The handy book format is very reminiscent of a baby book, but for pregnancy. Record your prenatal appointments, baby showers, belly photos, baby names and more.
