Shopping List For Trimester 1
Books are a must-have for you, especially if it’s your first pregnancy. They help you to understand the changes that your body is going through. Our personal favorite is “What To Expect When You Are Expecting” by Heidi Murkoff.
Maternity belly bands
These stretchy belts basically hold your pre-pregnancy pants and jeans up and are a stop-gap solution till you invest in maternity pants. You can buy them here.
As your belly grows, you will start to feel a strain in your back. The maternity & nursing pillow has many uses and you can buy them here.
As you progress through your pregnancy, you will start to notice that your breasts begin to enlarge and you might feel them getting itchy too. So moving to soft cotton bras without itchy lace and trims will help you stay comfortable.
As your baby's belly starts to grow, you will need comfortable maternity underwear. Morph Maternity’s range of maternity panties, while being comfy and growing with your belly, come with a special hygiene patch at the crotch that prevents infections that might be caused by using public washrooms.
Shopping List For Trimester 2
During the second trimester, you will find the need to invest in good quality maternity pants that will take you through your pregnancy. Trendy maternity jeans and smart trousers come with a stretchable belly panel that will help you get through your pregnancy in style and comfort. You can buy them here.
As the belly expands, it’s nice to flaunt your belly in trendy maternity tops that fit. Be it for work or a casual day out, Morph Maternity’s wide range of maternity tops will keep you in style.
Troubled sleep is a possibility during this time. Frequent trips to the washroom and the belly weighing down might cause sleeplessness. Wearing comfortable nightgowns or PJs will help get your snooze.
Anti Radiation belt
Today’s day and age warrant a lot of usage of radiation-emitting devices such as cell phones, laptops and microwaves. An Anti-EM belt will keep your baby safe from harmful radiation. You can buy it here.

Nursing Tops & Kurtis
During the final trimester, you will see your baby's belly grow and you will need maternity top-wear that accommodates it. It might be wise to invest in tops and kurtis that will flatter your baby's belly and double up as breastfeeding wear when the baby arrives.
This is a must-have for every pregnant mama. A simple stole that has multiple uses to keep you in style, cover your belly and also work as a nursing cover for when the baby arrives. You can buy it here.
Don’t we all know dresses drape the belly in the most flattering way? Be it dressing up for your baby shower or for a dinner out with your love, wearing a dress, be it a maxi or a midi will add oomph to your pregnancy wardrobe.
It’s best to invest in nursing bras at this stage as you will be needing them very soon anyways. Morph Maternity has a range of bras that are leakproof and prevent breast milk from spilling through your clothes. You can buy them here.
As you come toward the end of your pregnancy, it would be wise to read up about newborns and what to expect when it comes to baby care. Our favorite is What To Expect The First Year by Heidi Murkoff.
