7 Early Pregnancy Must-Haves for Fall

I'm almost 14 weeks pregnant, and my belly has popped... not to the extent that anyone who doesn't know me would connect the dots, but I can certainly tell. It's a bit of a hard stage to be in because on the one hand I want to declare my pregnancy to the world in excitement, but at the same time I don't really look pregnant to the casual onlooker. I just appear to be a little rounder than usual. So, for me, the flowing/draping/tunic shirts continue. Hence, number one on my list:

1. Oversized flowing/draping/tunic-esque shirts. The one I'm wearing above was actually a thrift store find, but here are links to some I'm currently loving: 

2. Black maternity jeggings from Pink Blush Maternity. I ordered a pair, and when they arrived I couldn't believe how comfortable they are! It's like wearing pajamas... except they look like jeans and they're flattering. Win win win. 

3. Cute scarves. Obviously this isn't exclusive for pregnant women, but if you're in the stage where you don't want to draw attention to your growing waistline then a scarf can help. Plus they're just a fun way to accessorize. Here are some of my favorites: 

4. A spare ring (or two) in bigger sizes for swollen fingers. In my first pregnancy, I didn't have this issue until the last trimester. This time around I've already noticed swelling that comes and goes, and my wedding ring has left marks and sores on my fingers a few times. And, since I can't afford to get a spare diamond ring, a good cz is the next best thing. I have my eye on this Round Halo Cubic Zirconia Ring

5. Comfortable boots. This is another fall necessity for everyone, but when you're pregnant you need to ensure that they are indeed comfortable because feet swell. Everything else already hurts, so the last thing you need is to add feet to your list of woes. I love the Tan Booties I'm wearing above because they are comfy with a slight heel for that elongating/slimming effect. 

6. Maternity tights. Tights are a must-have for fall so that you can transition your favorite skirts into a new season. Regular tights are really uncomfortable on a growing belly. Maternity tights are a must-have know... breathing is a priority. I love this 2 pack of H&M Maternity Tights and these Maroon Merona Brand Tights from Target

7. Lipsticks in fall fall shades. Your body is going through a lot of changes that you don't have much control over. Lipstick is one way you can easily take charge of your look to switch things up... and have fun doing so. Here are a few of my favorites for the season: 
-Classic Red: MAC Matte Red 

What are some of your favorite fall necessities? 


  1. You could get a spare diamond ring and then loose it while cleaning your house. But I don't know anyone dumb enough to do that... except for me.

  2. Girl, you are seriously gorrrrrrgeous!!
    I'm with you on the flowing tops... I didn't really have any when I was pregnant and I felt so frumpy and gross all the time. I've added a loooooot more to my wardrobe so I should be better equipped with my next pregnancy!
    I've been hearing a lot about Pink Blush Maternity... excited to give them a try (when I get pregnant, ha!)
