Bonding with your Bump

Friday, 10 February 2017

An instagram feed full of size 6 bikini models and continuous gym selfies from everybody's 'new year's' kick, teamed with segregating your wardrobe into what you can and can't fit into, even the most body confident women struggle with adapting to the growing stomach and pound piling on that goes on with pregnancy.
And I certainly am no different! As I folded away my skinny jeans and size 8 LBDs all I could think is 'will I ever get back into any of my wardrobe'. Growing a life is a beautiful and amazing time and is such a blessing it's such taboo to even suggest that you may fall out of love with your body shape. But not only are you looking curvier those pesky hormones can sometime just make you feel CRAP! I want to let you know that you are not alone if you feel like this. As my cardio and weight lifting gym routine is a distance memory and I now take leisurely swims, I sure as hell don't feel as strong and good as I used too.
I have been working on loving my new found shape and those little kicks and knocks make it all worth while. It's only 9 months and then this amazing journey is over and I am over halfway now so it really is time to embrace those lumps, bumps and rounded tummy!

My Top Tips for Embracing The Belly

1. Do NOT Compare your Bump
The temptation to look at celebrity mums and pinterest pics to see if your bump is rounding/hanging and showing just like 'everyone elses' is all too much. But we are all different and this is YOUR journey and YOUR baby! And guess what next time you may show completely different ....

2.Follow Mums on Insta
Looking at all those amazing newborn first snaps will melt your heart, and make the excitement of meeting your bundle of joy even more exciting !!

3. Buy a Bodycon Dress & The Oversized Roll Neck
Like when your not pregnant you'll have confident and unconfident days so buy that tight fitting 'LOOK AT ME I'M PREGNANT' dress and the oversized roll neck jumper (in 4 sizes bigger than I am) for the days you want to cosy up and not have every Tom, Dick and Harry touching your blossoming bump.
