Sorry I missed another Wednesday post. As I am getting close to the due date, things are slowing down a little for me. My body is taking extra time and energy to get things done. And sometimes I just need to listen to my body and rest when I need to. Talking about resting, it is very easy to gain weight more than you need during pregnancy with all the changes happening to your body, mood and diet. One can’t compromise on food to stay fit as you are not just eating for yourself but also for your little one. I also realized that It is very easy to lose motivation to workout or stay active as you tend to slacken off especially during third trimester. I need to keep reminding myself how important is to keep moving when it comes to me and my baby’s health.
I am kind of a person who always need some motivation when it comes to staying fit. Having a workout partner or joining a group class have been my best bet so far and it works perfectly. Another big motivation for me is to have cool workout clothes. Recently it has been a challenge to fit into almost anything as my body keeps changing, and searching for good maternity activewear that not only appears cool but also super comfy seemed close to impossible. To me the most important piece of clothing that is worth investing in during pregnancy are pants/bottoms. And I personally love the ones that comes with belly band to support the bump. I love the feeling of security and comfort it gives especially when moving around. Recently I have been looking for a good pair of leggings and tried many popular brands (Gap, Asos, Old Navy – to name a few) but felt more keen to take them off than wearing them. A little too much of snugness can easily turn you off during pregnancy and that’s what exactly happened. Finally my search came to an end when I got introduced to an online store called Motherhood Maternity. The company approached me to partner with them and I am truly glad that I did. The timing was just perfect as I knew exactly what I want to try from their collection, and apart from some other key pieces, I picked these pair of Secret Fit Belly Maternity Leggings. They are stretchy and soft enough to fit my growing body and the best of all – it comes with a belly band! I truly don’t feel like taking them off and they are perfect for walking and stretching kind of workout that I do the most. The store carries variety of brands and clothing types for moms-to-be, which are not only practical but also super stylish. Love their activewear collection that gives you many options to choose ranging from tees to bottoms. They also carry petite and plus size styles to make every body type feel and look great during this special phase. I truly recommend Motherhood Maternity to all the style and quality conscious preggos out there! :)
PS – I will be doing few more style posts showcasing more items from the store that I carefully picked to suit my style and comfort. So stay tuned!
And as always, thanks for stopping by and I hope you all have a wonderful and active weekend!
