I don’t ever talk about body image issues on my blog, but the truth is– I have them. Pregnancy is the one time where I feel the most beautiful and the most unsure about my body. I mean, you are rapidly gaining weight, paranoid about things such as stretch marks and varicose veins– yet you feel so gorgeous knowing that you are growing a tiny human inside of you. Such a gift! Body wise I’d like to say with Liam I felt okay. My bump grew out straight and cute and I very quickly went down to pre baby weight again. This time my bump is growing differently, wider if you will. But I hear that’s typical for carrying a baby girl. I have felt more pains and aches this time and have even been presently gifted the compression tights for the remainder of my pregnancy (so not glamourous…especially in the heat of the summer). I feel insecure and most of the time I try on several outfits before I feel ‘comfortable’.
I was so excited to receive the BUMPED by BLANQI simply because it will work great for breastfeeding and it’s seamless– I’m not a fan of those maternity sides. What I didn’t expect was the support it would give my bump. And it holds every which way that I need it to. I just love it and I’m excited to order a couple more since the BUMPED by BLANQI is avaliable online at Target, now! Since I know there are quite a few pregnant readers out there, BLANQI was kind enough to let me do a giveaway for my readers which includes your choice of BUMPED by BLANQI cami and a $25 gift card to Target to spend as you wish!!!
So watch the video below (I really show/explain how it works and why I like it) and then enter the giveaway…. You get to see a lovely bump shot in the video!!
