Working out during pregnancy is a high priority for me. I didn’t want to slow down or stop exercising just because I had some morning sickness or because I was growing a human. I wanted to keep my normal pace and routine and keep moving.
I’m about four weeks away from my due date, and I’ve had to modify some workouts, slow down my pace when I don’t want to, and realize that this tiny human inside of me is going to alter my workouts in some way. And I’m OK with that! Some can continue on during their entire pregnancy, others are made to be on bedrest. There is a range of workout levels during pregnancy — just like there are before and after.
Mumberry brand was new to me, but once I tried them I was amazed. So impressed by the supportive belly band in the top. And I’m all about working out in tanks, so having that as an option was crucial. You can read my full review here.
The headband and hat aren’t only for pregnant women wanting to workout, but I had to include them anyway because both are great. I have a sweatband- a black sparkly one- and it stays put and doesn’t give me a headache, which is a rare find.
Maternity workout pants are hard for me. I have a few with full panels and those are good for the beginning, but toward the end I don’t want any panel over my belly! So the ones above are perfect, for the last term of my pregnancy and for afterward. Plenty of room left to wear them post-baby.
Do you have any favorite workout gear for pregnancy? Or afterward? Or heck, even for before! I’m always looking for good gear.
Linking up with High Five for Friday.
