Must Haves for 2nd Trimester

1. Old Navy Tank Tops - These are a life saver for the wardrobe.  I have one in practically every color and wear them every day.  They are actually from the normal section.  Normal....makes me feel so much better and less of a huge whale.
2.  Sunscreen - I don't know about you, but I burn sooooo easily while pregnant.  However, I am making the switch to lotion SPF because I am apparently an idiot when it comes to spraying.  So far my zebra burns are not looking so great. 
3. Orange Gatorade - This is my number one craving.  I dream about orange Gatorade.  I wake up thinking about orange Gatorade.  I keep our fridge stalked of the good stuff.  I just can't get enough.  Luckily my students figured out that bringing me a bottle of orange gold was the quickest way to suck up to me!!

4. Slushi Machine - Quite the life saver for both a 4 year old and a pregnant mama during these hot summer days.  
5. Mahjong - Yes, I am an 80 year old women at heart and love to play Mahjong.  It let's me zone out on those nights (aka, 6 or 7pm in the evening) that I just can't get comfortable.  Don't worry, I was totally addicted to this super awesome game in college too.  I was really cool. 

6. Bio Oil - I bought a small little bottle of this not knowing if I would like it.  I freaking LOVE it.  I put it on twice a day on the huge bump and lower back.  I also put it on my zebra sun burns since I am an idiot with spray sunscreen.  Works like a charm.  

7. Body Butter - I am loving the smell of coconut.  Non-pregnant, I can't stand lotions that are too fruity or flowery.  But this one smells like a dream to me.  I lather it on all over twice a day and I smell like a walking pina colada.  Perhaps that is the appeal. 

8. Wedge Pillow - My belly sits low and out.  (Feel like that should be a rap song.)  And it is a necessity that I wedge a pillow underneath at night.  Right now the pillow count is to 5.  Poor gator guy just knows to not even question my pillow madness.   

9. Target - I need to say anything more???

10. To Do Lists - I freaking forget everything.  Seriously everything.  So I have to make a to-do list each day.  Yes, I will even put "Take a Shower" as it is one of those things that just doesn't get done very often in the summer.
