Pregnancy is the weirdest thing I have done to date. Between body and hormone changes, the aches and pains of completely rearranged insides and having a little wriggling worm playing the drums in your belly, it's got to be one of the strangest human experiences.
It's also the tiredest, sickest, achiest and most overwhelming thing many women put themselves through.
When I first fell pregnant, I had no clue what to buy. Like most niche areas, the world of maternity is a highly marketed space full of lotions and potions and bits and bobs you 'have' to have.
But what is actually worth the money?
To help, I spoke to a bunch of formally pregnant and currently pregnant mums to share their number one purchase that got them through those long nine months.
I'll go first.
