When you’re pregnant, you’re told it’s good to keep fit and active.
However, for the first 11 weeks of my pregnancy the only exercise I could manage was walking to the front door to open it for the Pizza Hut delivery man – I made sure I ordered with extra cheese and veg for calcium and vitamins.
As I started feeling better and bump became more open to fresh foods and air, I decided to start running again – something I’d done a lot of before I found out I was pregnant.
What I didn’t count on was how hard it was to find maternity gym and yoga wear. Apart from brands that specifically carer for this market, the only highstreet retailer that stocked this was New Look.
That said, everything I have at home gives my bump and erm, boobs, the support they need when I’m out running, something that’s so important if you’re planning on exercising during your pregnancy.
Here’s some of my faves. Scroll down to see where to buy them from.
Pink maternity gym vest – New Look, Capri maternity leggings – Fitta Mamma, Maternity jogging bottoms – Red Herring maternity at Debenhams, Blue maternity sports vest – Maternity Sportswear, Grey marl maternity joggers – Mothercare.
