2. Pink Stork Flakes: Magnesium Bath Soak

Let your pregnant BFF relax in this nourishing soak from Pink Stork: the Magnesium Bath Soak contains high amounts of magnesium, which is vital in pregnancy. The lack of magnesium has been linked to morning sickness, irritability, low energy levels, restlessness, and other pregnancy discomforts. This soak is made of 100% pure salt flakes harvested from the Dead Sea. It’s safe to use during pregnancy and is effective in helping pregnant women relax. Rated 4.6 out of 5 stars on Amazon.

Promising review: “I love the magnesium salt. I suffer from hyperemesis gravidarum (nausea and severe vomiting) and these are a lifesaver. I soak my feet or whole body in the tub a few times a week. Love that it doesn’t smell. I personally prefer the glass container it used to come in vs the bag it’s in now. Definitely recommend everyone to use. Love this product. I even use it when I’m not pregnant because it’s natural and soothing.” YellowPairofRunningShoes

I usually (pre-pregnancy) wear a 7.5-8 so I got a large and the fit great, I’ve still got heel room so I could even wear thin socks if I wanted to!” Amazon Customer

Even at 5’9” and 190 lbs, the Large fits well now, and it will be perfect once I don’t have the bump as well. Could not be happier with this robe!” Rooskichick

Promising review: “I am 28 weeks pregnant and had trouble getting comfortable at night and woke up with back and rib pain every hour. I ordered this pillow and started sleeping with it under my bump. I woke up the next morning with no pain whatsoever. The pillow is also small enough to take to work or in the car for extra back support. We have a queen sized bed and I did not want to order one of those giant support pillows, also they are pretty expensive. This has worked really well, would highly recommend. I also like that it is packable, as we will be traveling in a few weeks.” Shopgrlmn

Shea butter is also included to help moisturize the skin. It has a non-greasy formula that’s easy to apply, too. Rated 4.6 out of 5 stars on Amazon.

Promising review: “This stuff works. It’s very moisturizing without leaving a gross greasy residue. Soaks in nicely. I use it on my hands when they are dry as well as my baby bump and it works wonderfully. Scent isn’t obnoxious and a little bit of this goes a long way. I use it once a day and I haven’t even made a dent.” Lauren

I bought three different pairs of these and they are all going to the hospital with me – I’m thrilled I don’t have to walk around the hospital in high waters, haha!” Andrea D.
