Iv'e promised the kids all kinds of beach days this summer. This is a fairly easy request and something I enjoy as much as they do. The beach is a place where I always feel free. Something about just laying in the sun with no worries, kids playing, water near by... it just feels right.
This summer my beachwear requires a bit more planning. A thirty week belly needs more room, comfort and space to grow. Did I just say thirty weeks....?!?!
The kids and I went out shopping for new bathing suits recently and I did something daring and not very much like me.
I skipped the maternity one piece! Didn't even try them on! And just bought a bikini top and bottom in a bigger size!
I'm showing off my belly this summer. It's a bit wild and crazy for me. Truth is though, I feel totally comfortable and confident in this big belly right now. I see myself and although I see a lot of growth in certain places that probably shouldn't be growing and will be hard to loose post baby... I also see how beautiful I am in this temporary skin.
Thought's about how this
might will probably be the last time I am pregnant have also crossed my mind and for this reason I feel like I should embrace my body even more.
So weird for me to write this because I am usually the last person to feel comfortable in a two piece when I am not pregnant. Even during times in my life when I have been in the best shape I have always focused on all of my imperfections. Maybe pregnancy gives me a reason to be just like I am without having these certain expectations about how I should look.
Definitely leaves me with thoughts about feeling comfortable with who I am post baby.
Showing my belly off...am I completely crazy for doing this? What are your thoughts on a two piece during pregnancy? Is it a no-no or a do it?
Have you and the kids shopped for bathing suits yet?
