I’m due mid October with baby boy number two. I am against buying maternity wear in the sense that I would rather invest in items that I can wear out of pregnancy also, rather than just for a couple of months. Yes, I am super lucky that I have generally only built up a bump rather than grown with water retention (for now, I still have 2 months and everything can change!!) and that i’m a usual size 8-10 so rather petite. If you’re similar to me then you’ll appreciate this post, and if you’re not, get in touch as I’d love you to write a guest post on maternity wear for different shapes!
I had bought some summer bits and bobs from the high street just before my holiday to Sardinia in early July, but I now have holiday number 2 coming up, mid August, and already those items are not cutting it. Bump has grown, boobs have grown and I need to get some more last minute hot weather essentials.
