One thing I didn’t do a great job of that I wish I would’ve done during my first pregnancy was show off my bump. I was constantly trying to hide it because I was very self conscious of the weight I was gaining. This time around, I was determined to show off my baby bump no matter how big I got. I am growing a baby. There is absolutely nothing to be ashamed of and every reason in the world to feel proud and show it off. So, that’s my first bit of advice. Don’t be afraid to show off that growing baby and belly! You are growing a human and that is pretty amazing!
Here are some tips for having a stylish pregnancy:
-Size Up. You’d be surprised with how much you can wear throughout your pregnancy by buying one size larger. You will also be thankful for these pieces after you have your baby.
-Leggings are a must have for pregnant women. They are stretchy, comfortable, stylish and pretty much perfect. You will be able to wear yours for a while, but you might want to purchase a pair of maternity leggings during your last trimester. They are just so comfortable and fit so much better. They also have a tummy panel so you aren’t dealing with an extremely noticeable band across your stomach.
-Tunics Are Your Friend. You won’t even have to size up for these. I loved wearing tunics during both of my pregnancies. You can wear them with your leggings or jeans and they are so flowy that you can get away with wearing them throughout your entire pregnancy. Not only that, You will wear them after your pregnancy as well. They are in style and aren’t going away any time soon.
-Belt It. Do you have a super flowy dress that makes you feel like you’re wearing a tent? Throw a belt on and Wa La! You’re showing off that adorable baby bump!
-Maxi Dresses are your best friend. No matter the season, they are always in style. I received this one from Pink Blush Maternity and wore it all the time during the winter months. They are so comfortable and stylish. The perfect combination for a pregnant woman.
-Splurge On Maternity Jeans. I don’t know what I would’ve done without jeans this winter/spring. I have worn them to death. They were definitely worth the $40 I spent on them. I know you don’t want to spend a lot of pieces you will only wear for a few months, but the chances are, you will wear them again if you want multiple children. Jeans are a huge staple in my wardrobe. I couldn’t do without them.
