If your wife is currently pregnant, than 2017 marks her first Mother's Day as a mom. And chances are, she's feeling a mix of emotions. Because as exciting as it is to expand your family, dealing with constant physical and emotional changes isn't fun. Chances are she could use some extra love and pampering. Thankfully, there are so many ideas for Mother's Day gifts for your pregnant wife you really can't go wrong.

Just because the baby isn't here yet, doesn't mean your wife isn't a bonafide mom. She's already had to make mom-level sacrifices like dealing with lack of sleep, morning sickness, bloating, and a plethora of other not-so-fun pregnancy symptoms. Not to mention, growing eyeballs and brains takes a lot of work. Now is the time to go out of your way to make sure your wife feels like she's appreciated. Time is limited once a child comes into the picture and who knows if you'll have the energy to think of special gifts after several sleepless nights with a baby.

To take the pressure off of finding something for her this year, use this guide as inspiration. Here are 11 Mother's Day gift ideas for the pregnant woman in your life.

1A Massager

Amazon

Santamedical Mini Penguin Massager, $13, Amazon

It's no secret that pregnant women get aches. They're carrying around extra weight, their muscles are stretching, and everything is just a bit more uncomfortable. Make her massage dreams come true by buying her a personal massager, like the Santamedical Mini Penguin Massager sold on Amazon. You could also buy a gift card to a local spa.

2Ginger Tea

Amazon

Numi Organic Tea, $5, Amazon

Morning sickness, all day nausea, and indigestion plagues many pregnant mamas. According to Web Md, ginger root may alleviate nausea although how it happens is still a mystery. If your wife is having nausea or digestive issues buying her some nice ginger tea is a really thoughtful way of showing her that you care about how yucky she feels. Decaf Ginger Numi Tea is great because there's no caffeine and it also has lemongrass for a sweet flavor.

3Mint Foot Cream

Amazon

Burt's Bees Mama Bee Leg & Foot Cream, $11, Amazon

Pregnant women can use lots of extra love when it comes to their feet and legs. Opt for Burt's Bees' Mama Leg And Foot Cream which has mint in it to relieve tired and achy limbs. Earn bonus points and offer to give your wife a foot massage with it.

4Non-Toxic Nail Polish

Amazon

Karma Hues Nail Polish in Farmer's Market Berries, $10, Amazon

Pregnant moms who like to have their nails done may like non-toxic polish. Get her a variety of Karma Hues polish, which is non-toxic and vegan.

7Pregnancy Pillow

Your wife is probably uncomfortable and possibly tossing and turning at night. So give her the gift of a good night's sleep with the Leachco Snoogle total body pillow.

8Gift Card For A Blow Out

Did I mention pregnancy is exhausting? Why not give your wife's tired arms a break from having to do her hair? A blow out is great because stylists will give her a relaxing head massage while shampooing her hair. Then they'll blow dry her hair and style it any way she wants. You may also want to throw in some extra money so she can snag some dry shampoo. It will come in handy when the baby is born.

9Jewelry

Kris Nations

Mama Script Necklace, $58, Kris Nations

If your wife is the jewelry kind of gal you can bedazzle her with this simple script "Mama" necklace, which comes in gold or silver. I bought one for myself last Mother's Day, and it was the perfect gift.

10Her Favorite Foods

Whatever your wife is craving — salty or sweet — just go get it. And get lots of it. You can also opt to make it, but only do this if you're good at making her favorite food.

11A Diaper Bag That's A Bit Of A Splurge
