    15 Fall Pregnancy Ideas That Are Simply Brilliant

    Let the heat be gone!

    1. Feeling nauseous? Well, sucking candies can help! Stock up before and after Halloween (when candy is half price).

    2. If you can't get comfy on the couch (or in front of the fireplace), try snuggling up with a memory foam wedge pillow.

    It has with a soft side and a firm side for adjustable comfort. Amazon sells these for $22.92.

    3. And while you are snuggled indoors, indulge in some pumpkin-flavored white hot chocolate for maximum relaxation before the baby arrives.

    4. Need to de-stress and unwind? Try doing some pregnancy meditation outdoors in the cool weather before it gets too chilly.

    5. If you don't want to buy a ~new fall wardrobe~ keep your same pants and simply use a hair tie or rubber band as an expander for your jeans.

    Loop the hair tie through the buttonhole and hook it onto the button. You can use this hack as a zipper extender, too.

    6. Or make your own belly band to cover up jeans that you can no longer button. It will also add length to your tops.

    7. Visit a pumpkin patch with your loved one and take it all in before you have to lug a stroller and a diaper bag around.

    8. If you're experiencing swollen pregnancy feet, soak them in tonic water.

    Cold or room-temperature tonic water reduces swelling in feet and ankles. The quinine reduces inflammation and the bubbles soothe sore feet.

    The acetic acid in apple cider vinegar actually has several health benefits.

    12. Don't worry about investing in new maternity bras. Instead, buy "bra-back extenders" and wear the bras you already own.

    The extenders add that extra room you need around your chest and are about a fourth of the price of buying a maternity bra.

    13. If your bump is weighing you down, use an ice pack strap to help hold it up.
