Easy Pregnancy Tips with Ali Erickson
Are you looking for easy pregnancy tips? I’m Ali Erickson! I’m 35 weeks pregnant and a soon-to-be mama to a baby boy! I am married to a women’s college basketball coach, and I work in talent acquisition for a national law firm, managing staff recruiting for all ten of our offices.
I’m a planner and love to do my research, but as a first-time mom, I’m still pretty clueless. So, at this point, I don’t have much advice to give yet. Instead, I thought it would be fun to share a list of products and resources that have guided me through the last 8 months and helped me prepare for this next chapter. I have also included my registry, which you’ll find linked at the bottom.
My Favorite Classes
- Prep for Birth
- Toolkit for New Parents
- Infant CPR
- Karrie Locher’s Infant Care & Breastfeeding Courses (Look her up on Insta – she’s a wealth of knowledge)
- Expecting Better
- Bringing Up Bebe
- Birth Without Fear
- What to Expect When Expecting
Healthy Beauty Products

Pregnancy safe skincare:

- Abercrombie maternity jeans
- Nike maternity leggings
- Lululemon Align leggings (sized up)
- H&M oversized sweaters
- Target Stars Above nightgowns
- Compression socks
- *Still searching for the perfect maternity bra
Although the exhaustion has been real, I still feel guilty about not keeping up with a workout regimen. I do try to sneak in a couple of Nike workouts a week. They are free on the Nike Training App, quick, low impact, and you can easily modify them. My workouts are rare, and I’ll spare you the details of my diet. LOL! Let’s just say, my cravings have been all over the place, and my baby apparently hates vegetables or anything remotely healthy. That’s what prenatals are for, right?! 😉
Easy Pregnancy Tips For A Registry
When I sat down to create my registry, I was overwhelmed by the amount of products on the market. How do you choose the best car seat or crib mattress with so many different options available?
After reading countless blogs, random internet threads, and asking all my friends for their recommendations, I put some serious time, thought, and effort into this Enzo’s Gift Guide on Baby List.
It’s not an exhaustive list and won’t work for everyone’s lifestyle, but I’d like to think it’s a good starting point.
Easy Pregnancy Tips Conclusion
That’s all for now. We hope you enjoyed these easy pregnancy tips from Ali Stay tuned for a look inside Baby Erickson’s nursery! 🙂
What Is A Diaper Shower: A Fund For Diapers
Have you heard of the term “diaper shower” but are wondering what is a diaper shower? If you are a new parent or know someone who is expecting a child soon a diaper shower is for you!
A diaper shower is essentially a baby shower, but instead of traditional gifts like clothes and toys, guests bring disposable diapers, wipes, and other diapering essentials. The purpose of a diaper shower is to help new parents stock up on these necessary items for their newborn without having to worry about constantly restocking themselves.
An event like a Diaper Shower can often include games, gift openings, and food. On the other hand, diaper parties are typically hosted by men or couples, with male friends of the dad-to-be in attendance. The focus is on providing practical gifts like diapers and wipes rather than traditional baby gifts like clothes or toys. You can also host a Diaper Shower completely online!
