Maternity Monday: Preggie Pop Drops

Luckily, in my first trimester I didn’t get morning sickness too badly — but I was definitely queasy on more mornings than not. Unluckily, I had to commute every morning in very crowded conditions. The smells, the heat, the crowds, the swaying … it’s enough to make me nauseated on a regular, non-pregnant day. I always made sure to have plenty of these Preggie Pop Drops in my bags or in my pockets to pop into my mouth so that there was a flavor in my mouth and something to smell. It could have been a placebo effect, but they helped and took the anxiety out of commuting. One thing to note is that the outside wrapper has the brand name, so to keep things quiet, you may want to take them out and put them in a ziplock before you use them in the office. Three Lollies Preggie Pop Drops

Maternity Monday: Twist-Front T-Shirt Dress

maternity t-shirt dressT-shirt dresses can be a bit on the casual side for a conservative office — but provided they’re opaque and in good shape without pilling or the like, you can often dress them up with enough jewelry and accessories to make the casual-ness of the dress fade away. This twist-front dress from Old Navy looks like a great option for just that — add some classic heels, a set of pearls, a watch, and you’re in business. It’s normally $36, but today it comes down to $26 in your bag — it’s available in navy, black, and orange in size XS-XXL. Twist-Front T-Shirt Dress

Maternity Monday: Isabella Oliver Maternity Blazer

I’ve said it before, I’ll say it again: I think I wore almost all of my regular blazers until I was about 38 or 39 weeks pregnant. But everybody gains weight differently during their pregnancies, and if on the off chance you really want to buy a maternity blazer, this one from Isabella Oliver (at Macy’s) looks gorgeous. If you want something more traditional, there’s one on sale at Isabella Oliver, but it’s almost sold out. (May the odds be ever in your favor!) The pictured blazer comes in sizes 1–5 (Isabella Oliver’s maternity sizes). Isabella Oliver Maternity Blazer

Maternity Monday: ‘Shannon’ Maternity Dress

We’ve featured a couple of Kimi and Kai dresses before — the brand has comfortable, affordable workwear like this stretch-jersey dress. It’s a pretty simple dress that you could dress up or down, it comes with a removable belt, and it’s machine washable. Pleats like this aren’t that common in maternity dresses, so it’s nice to see something a little different. The dress only has one review so far, but it’s very positive and notes that the style is flattering. It’s $88 at Nordstrom and comes in black, purple, and bright green in sizes S–L. Kimi and Kai ‘Shannon’ Maternity Dress

Maternity Tuesday: Dolman-Sleeve Bodycon Dress

This Old Navy dress, which is available only online, looks great. Note that the blue and red are almost all sold out (and the green is gone), but there are still a lot of sizes left in the black and “longstocking red” (which looks orange on my screen, at least). They’re all on sale right now, from $12.97 to $19.97, and even better, another 30% will be taken off when you add one to your cart (today only), meaning you could potentially get a maternity dress for $9. It’s made from a soft, slightly-stretchy jersey, and the reviews say it’s comfortable and flattering. Maternity Dolman-Sleeve Bodycon Dress

Maternity Monday: ‘Nouveau’ Sheath Maternity Dress

I always like Leota sheath dresses. This one, I’ll grant you, has an unusual print, but I kind of like it — it’s a fun, spring-y plaid and it’s a nice change from the typical maternity dresses. Sizes are XS–L, and the dress is machine washable (lay flat to dry). You can find it at Nordstrom for $98, and Amazon has it in different patterns (sizes include XL, which is sold out at Nordstrom) as well as the plus-size version‘Nouveau’ Sheath Maternity Dress
