1. Super-comfy leggings, like these ones from Old Navy because they'll go with everything.

2. A belly band, so you can keep wearing your fave pair of jeans.

3. Cute t-shirt dress or some extra-long tops that give you coverage throughout your entire pregnancy.

4. Long-sleeved tunics like this super-flattering one with ruching on the sides.

5. An extra-long tank top like this one from Target, for layering under shirts.

6. Convertible maxi skirt that you can wear over or under your bump.

8. A basic black tee that'll match with anything.

9. Yoga pants for pajama bottoms, like this affordable pair.

10. Bump-friendly undies that you can wear underneath your belly.

11. A loose, flowy tunic that you can wear after pregnancy, too.

12. Say goodbye to cankles with some cutesy compression socks.

13. Flip flops that will fit your growing feet. Here's a beautiful rose-gold pair.

14. Ballet flats, if that's more your style.

15. A long-sleeved cowl neck shirt for the crispy weather.
