Chances are that first trimester exhaustion is just starting to hit, so now is the time to be good to yourself, relax and get serious about binge watching! Once baby comes, you may not have as much time to yourself, so enjoy it while you’ve got it. Whether it’s shows that make you laugh or cry or both, you’ll want to cozy on up on the couch… or in bed.
When watching Full House and Gilmore Girls marathons, get your big mug of decaf coffee out and pair it with the smoothest maternity leggings and an oversized maternity sweater for all those lessons from dad, and those fast talking, mother-daughter moments.
Maybe you haven’t been feeling so well (we recommend Preggie Pop Drops – you’ll thank us) and laughter is the best medicine, so try binging a comedy. Friends, Blackish, The Office… all are even funnier in a shirt that adds some humor, like one of our maternity graphic tees.
Or all you need is a good cry. Don’t skip the drama, embrace it with old school Grey’s Anatomy episodes (Denny, we miss you!) Or, get into This Is Us, because what have you been waiting for?
You are showing, but are you glowing? Take some time to yourself this trimester, because this is when everything happens. From your baby shower and gender reveal, to your babymoon, to itchy skin and backaches… there’s a lot to expect when expecting. So, calm down and breathe. Maybe, try a little yoga.
Our friends at Fit Pregnancy have an easy-to-follow yoga guide with moves accommodating women per trimester. To give you a taste of where to start, “Do the program in the order listed at least 3 times per week. On non-yoga days, include other activities such as walking or swimming. Choose the variation of each pose that’s most appropriate for you based on your fitness level, flexibility, strength, trimester and familiarity with yoga. Hold each pose for 5 smooth, controlled breaths. If any of the poses becomes uncomfortable, stop.”
If this is the year you’re going to be one fit mama-to-be or new mom, delve deeper and keep following us, because later this week and throughout the month we are collaborating with Amy Kiefer of Expecting and Empowered. Come back to check as she helps us workout while pregnant, after birth, and look good doing it with a little help from Motherhood Maternity!
Now that you’ve stretched it out wearing something from our maternity active collection, get ready to relax. Snuggle up in one of our maternity and nursing nightgown and robe sets, lather yourself with safe skincare and prepare to Netflix and chill. It’s okay, resolutions can roll over.
This one is easy, uncomplicated, efficient. Shop our maternity sleepwear. Feel better knowing it’s also nursing sleepwear. Wear and love our sleepwear.
