I’m so excited to share this post with y’all today! I’ve had it in my drafts for a while now and am excited to finally get it up for y’all! I’m going to share all of the best hacks to make life a bit easier for the 9-10 months you’re pregnant! We can all use a little hack in our life, so I hope this is helpful!
I have a few hacks that I do during pregnancy, and I also asked you girls in Instagram Stories to tell me some of your hacks! I’m also sharing some that I came across during this pregnancy that I hadn’t done before so this is a great list to reference if you or someone you know is pregnant! Everyone can use some tips to make their pregnancy a little easier, right?
10 hacks that make your pregnancy easier
First things first; I want to share this first hack with you girls because I found it at the end of my pregnancy and it was life-changing. I am also using it post-partum as I just don’t quite fit in my jeans just yet!
Maeband is an expandable band that allows you to wear your favorite pants/jeans throughout your pregnancy and beyond by temporarily adjusting the size of your waistband. Keep your pants unbuttoned and loop the Maeband over and through the two front belt loops and velcro. It’s super comfortable and easy to use while your waistband can stretch and you can still wear your favorite jeans!
I’ve tried belly bands and elastic waist things in the past, but Maeband is actually the first product that has worked and I’ve loved! You can get them in sizes small, medium and large to grow with you throughout pregnancy and after and also in three different color choices: white, black and navy.

2. Essential Oils to Combat Nausea
It’s said that Lemon essential oil is great for combating nausea during pregnancy! Roll it on or just smell it frequently to help with first (or every) trimester of nausea and morning sickness!
3. 100 Squats a Day
Do 100 squats a day for a fast delivery! I wish I would have known this one! 😉 Also….get a great booty! Ha!
4. Bar of Soap to Help Restless Legs
Add a bar of white soap under your sheets at the bottom where your feet are to help with your restless legs and leg cramps during the night!
5. Take Hospital Supplies
When you’re leaving the hospital after delivery, take all of the supplies they give you! Hey, you paid for them!
6. Tongs and Shower Chair
In your shower, add a shower chair so you can sit to shave your legs and keep a pair of tongs to pick up anything you drop!
7. Take Prenatal Vitamin at Bedtime
Take your prenatal vitamin at bedtime to avoid nausea!
8. Invest in Silk Sheets
Silk sheets make it easier to roll over when you’re big and pregnant!
9. A Banana a Day
Eating one banana a day keeps leg cramps and pains away! Also, if you suffer from nose bleeds during pregnancy this is so helpful!
10. Apple Cider Vinegar
A shot of Apple Cider Vinegar a day helps keep heartburn to a minimum. It also has lots of added health benefits!
What are some of your pregnancy hacks? I would love for you to add them below and I can add them to this post as suggestions! I wish I would have had these throughout my first pregnancy but it’s a learn-as-you-go type thing! I hope this is helpful to someone out there who is just trying to make pregnancy a little bit easier!
