REAL TALK: Pregnancy Must Haves and Regrets

I’m definitely not a mommy expert (yet 😉 ) but I’ve done my fair share of research on the googlesphere about pregnancy essentials and let me tell you… That led to a whole lot of (necessary and unnecessary) shopping on Amazon. Sadly, only to find some completely useless and not at all practical for my use case! I guess it’s because most of the videos I watched were of moms living overseas, and their recommendations didn’t match our need here in the Philippines.

So if you’re in a situation like me or just got pregnant (congratulations!), this one is for you. Since I’m already on my last trimester, I thought I would share a few things that I found super useful from the start of my pregnancy until the present, as well as which things I bought and wish I hadn’t. To all expecting moms out there, I hope this video is helpful for you! X
