The first trimester is the first 3 months of pregnancy which is marked by the first day of your last menstrual period, until the end of week 12. You’ll likely be halfway through your first trimester before you even know you’re pregnant!

Right now, you’re probably obsessed with all things pregnancy! Here are 12 books you need to read while pregnant to get building your reading list.

While your bump might not have popped quite yet, it’s good to be prepared and ensure you have a comfortable night’s sleep as your body changes. A pregnancy pillow is a must-have for this, and will allow you to sleep soundly in different positions. Head here for our picks of the best pregnancy pillows. As your body changes, it’s also good to have at least one maternity or nursing bra. Check out our favourite nursing bras.

The second trimester is often referred to as the "honeymoon phase" of pregnancy because many people experience increased energy and fewer discomforts compared to the first trimester. Nevertheless, you'll still need some key products, and it’s finally time to start baby shopping! Head here for our full list of second trimester must-haves.

To make things easier for yourself in a few months time, now is the perfect time to tick off some of the big-ticket items from your list, such as a pushchair and car seat. Check out our picks of the best prams out there!

This trimester, you’ll also likely start to see big changes in your body. Make sure to stock up on maternity leggings to ensure you’ve always got something comfortable to wear.

The countdown begins! You’ve reached the final trimester, and it’s nearly time to meet your little one. As the big day approaches, it’s time to stock up on the everyday essentials you’ll need when your bundle of joy arrives. Make sure to buy a good breast pump to help out with early feeding struggles, lots of nappies, and your nursery furniture.

It’s also a good time to buy a good changing bag, which can easily double up as your hospital bag to carry baby’s things. As your bump continues to grow, a supportive belly band is a must-have!
