My Preggy Essentials

During my first pregnancy, I used Palmer's Cocoa Butter Lotion, Body Shop's Cocoa Butter Body Butter and Avent Future Mother Moisturizing Light Oil (although this one made me itchy). I would use them everyday after bath. I barely had stretch marks after, I don't know if it's genes or because I was carried small or the products I used were effective. I already saw a few stretchmarks now.. I kept on scratching my belly kasi! :( Let's see how bad it is after I give birth!

This time, I still use Palmer's but the organic variant. My other preggy essentials: Aveeno Moisturizing Lotion (not in photo), Bio Oil, and J&J Baby Powder!

Now what I need is to find a post birth essentials!

What's your preggy and post birth essentials?


  1. hello! if I remember it right, when i was pregnant with my 3 girls, my cousins recommended me lotions with VITAMIN E. after every bath, i do the same thing, put lotion on my belly and if I am tempted to scratch some itch on my belly, I REALLY TRY NOT TO DO IT. hahaha! and I guess it helped not scratching at short TIISIN. hehehe!
