One thing that most pregnant moms miss is their ability to get a good night’s rest. And can you blame them? That big ol’ belly can make it a nightmare to get to sleep. But this pregnancy pillow creates a comfy place for the mom to rest and try to sleep the night away.
4. Comfortable Slippers
At some point during her pregnancy, your friend will want to trade in her old shoes for a comfortable new pair that support her tired, swollen feet. Slip on shoes are PERFECT because she won’t have to bend over to put them on or tie shoe laces. Plus, these Jessica Simpson faux fur slippers are so cute!

7. Love at First Sight Picture Frame
There’s no doubt that as soon as the baby is born, there are going to be pictures galore hanging up all over the house. But let’s not forget about displaying the baby’s first picture ever, their ultrasound!

If your friend is into writing, journaling or you just want her to be able to document the most important things, get her a pregnancy journal! After some time passes and she’s all wrapped up in newborn life she won’t remember everything about her pregnancy. Journaling her experience is a perfect keepsake for her and something she can share when her child gets older!
9. Maternity Robe
Because sometimes, the pants just don’t fit. All pregnant ladies know that once the baby starts growing, the belly isn’t going to stop growing, either. This robe was meant for growth around the mid-section and takes it into account.
Plus, lounging around the house in a robe sounds like a pretty relaxing day. Clothes are optional at a certain point in time during pregnancy, as long as you don’t have to leave the house and go anywhere!
10. Belly Casting Kit
Trying to remember your pregnancy belly once the baby is here is hard. How quickly we forget how “big” we really were. Why not give this Belly Casting Kit so that the mom to be can forever remember the time that she was carrying her baby in her tummy.
What a fun keepsake so that she’ll always remember this special time in her life.
11. Labor and Delivery Socks
Add a bit of fun to this time and get her these socks. Made to be “grippers” for a slick floor, these “If you can read this I’m in labor” socks are a great gift that is certain to be used! There’s nothing worse than being in labor and realizing that your feet are cold!
You can also gift these socks earlier, too. It’s totally up to you!
