Preggie Pops – value: $0.56
I had severe morning sickness (like, vomiting up to 8 times a day) while I was pregnant with my son. I tried the stick-less version of these and I don’t recall them being the miracle I was hoping they’d be. However nothing at all worked for me, so maybe some milder versions of morning sickness would have better luck!
Preggie Natural Chews – 2 chews, value: $0.57
I didn’t know they also made chews, but these are like starbursts!
The Stork Bag Water Bottle – value: $5.99?
A big water bottle is a great idea for a first trimester gift. I remember my mom bought me a giant tumbler then and it helped me hydrate enough. Unfortunately, this one is just hand-wash only, and I don’t know if it’s BPA free or not.
9 Months of Happiness Pregnancy Journal – value: $15
A journal is also a great idea for a first trimester box. This one is cute and is small enough to keep in your bag or something so it can be handy.
Earth Mama & Angel Baby Organics Morning Wellness Tea – 2 tea bags, value: $0.75
This is one of my favorite brands that I discovered while pregnant! This tea is “blended with stomach settling Ginger Root and Spearmint, a safe hint of Peppermint, soothing Chamomile and Lemon Balm with just a yummy twist of Orange Peel for flavor.” I like this tea and it’s good for anytime my stomach is bothering me, even when not pregnant.
BumpBoosters Pregnancy Cookie, Oatmeal Chocolate Chip – value: $2.75
I’ve tried a lactation cookie from this brand before and really liked it. This one is tasty too!
Artichoke Baby Organic Morning Sickness Lip Balm – value: $5
This lip balm contains Organic Shea Butter, Coconut Oil, Sweet Almond Oil, Beeswax, Orange & Ginger Essential Oils, and is designed to help alleviate nausea. They said it’s marketed for pregnancy but can also help with sea and motion sickness.
Knocked Up Nails Nail Polish, Rock-a-Bye Radiance – value: $10
This brand of polish makes 5-free, cruelty-free, gluten-free, vegan, and USA-made polish. It’s made to be safe for pregnancy and is supposed to be long-lasting and chip-resistant (although I don’t know of any polish brand that doesn’t claim that, so you know).
ToGoSpa Ice Water EYES Under Eye Treatment – value: $12.50
ToGoSpa is everywhere in subscription boxes. These definitely are quite cooling. However I had a hard time keeping them in place so these are definitely ones you need to relax while wearing I think.
Branch to Nature Mommy Collection the Belly Stick – 0.5 oz, value: $15
This is a really cool way to apply belly balm! I like the stick form a lot. I liked using my belly balm but had to dig my whole hand in the jar for it. It feels very moisturizing, too.
Verdict: I really like the first trimester The Stork Bag! It seems like it includes some good basics and useful items as well as things that are a little more pamper-oriented, too. I was happy to see a couple brands that I really liked and discovered during my pregnancy, too. The value adds up to $68.12 which is pretty good for a $40 box + shipping. Overall, I think it’s a nice way to discover some good brands and products for your pregnancy/your first trimester!
