Being pregnant is a wonderful time. From the feeling of excitement when the doctor confirms the pregnancy or the little line turns the right color to the pleasure you bring to your families faces when you announce your great news.

Further down the line comes the Baby Shower, the registering for baby gear, the trip to the store and the feeling of “Where do I possibly begin.”

I'm on my seventh month now and i need to create the “Healthy-Bump-must-have-list for expectant mothers”that will help to make sure I have the right items when we bring our bundle of joy home.
