Parenting is a crazy, hare-brained experience! There are late nights, messes, screaming, crying (both you and the baby!) and craziness. The adjustment to being a new parent is stressful but incredibly rewarding. You never realized how much you could love until you met your pooping, eating, crying bundle of joy! We loved these tweets that perfectly describe this amazing and crazy adventure of being a #newmom or #newdad.
New babies create chaos everywhere, but especially when you leave the house!
When running one errand results in you and baby both in tears and two store employees helping you to your car 😳😂🙈😑#newmom
Shopping for swimwear can be difficult, even under the best of circumstances. Whether it’s finding items that accommodate your extra long torso, or your petite frame, or your, ahem, ample bosom (or, in my case, the lack thereof), it can be tough out there for finding swimwear. This is especially true during pregnancy, when you have a burgeoning belly (and body) to consider, on top of all of your other assets.
I’ve found six of the best maternity swimsuits, all of which tackle different swimwear categories and are at various price points. Let’s get started…
1. The best bang for your buck
You. Guys. I found the cutest maternity suit at H&M, and it’s UNDER $30. I mean, I kind of wish I was pregnant so I could rock this swimming suit. Because it’s fashionable, cut perfectly and would make any pregnant mama look amazing.
2. The best one piece
This one piece is a great, timeless option that is sure to wow. The adjustable halter neck will help you achieve the perfect fit, and there are lightly padded cups to help with support. Plus, the subtle ruching will allow the suit to grow with your changing body.
3. The best tankini
This color-blocked tankini is another suit that I wish I could wear not pregnant. It’s a sporty and stylish option that doesn’t scream “maternity!” It doesn’t have the stereotypical “maternity ruching,” so I feel like it has great transitional appeal. You could also wear this postpartum, and no one would be the wiser.
The ninth month of pregnancy: when there begins to exist a direct correlation between excitement and discomfort. The waiting game is both fun and full of anticipation, but also full of a ridiculous amount of trips to the bathroom and ill-fitting clothing. Since a picture says 1,000 words, perhaps the best way to describe that last final month is with these hilarious and painfully honest photos.
1.When you’re finally in the home stretch, but each day suddenly feels like an eternity.
2. When you start wondering when that “pregnancy glow” everyone talks about is finally going to appear.
3. When your husband asks what you did today, but your days are admittedly not as productive as they used to be…
They say breakfast is the most important meal of the day, and when you’re pregnant, this is especially true. Who else wakes up feeling like they are famished beyond belief?! If this is you, we’ve rounded up some great breakfast ideas that are both easy for those on-the-go mornings, healthy, and easy to make too.
1. Hard Boiled Eggs + Fresh Fruit
If you are in a rush, this is a perfect go-to breakfast. Make hard boiled eggs the night before, and make a lot, so you have a breakfast alternative for more than one morning, or for an easy snack.
To hard boil the eggs, you can do it the old fashioned way of boiling your eggs in water, or try baking your eggs in a muffin tin. Eat 2 with a sprinkle of salt plus some fresh fruit like berries or a grapefruit, and you’ve got yourself a fairly easy and filling breakfast.
