My energy is back!!

Yeah! I’m finally able to stay up past 8pm without dozing off on the couch! Actually, I don’t even feel like staying on the couch anymore! yippee!!! I guess this means the second trimester has officially kicked in!

So, what better time than now to (re)start exercising (after a 3 month break). I began by looking for classes: prenatal aqua gym, prenatal yoga… Well, the yoga classes are fully booked until January and I need a one-piece bathing suit for the aqua gym. Off to the stores on Friday!

I was stunned to find that my size was basically sold out in just about every maternity shop in Brussels (ok, I may be exaggerating here) and that a maternity swimsuit is not easy to come by… Anyway, my little bump doesn’t want to fit in my regular clothes, but seems to still be too small for maternity pants 😦

So, after many unfruitful hours of shopping, I go home and shop online!

This is what I managed to buy:

Sexy swimsuit

Black pants

and….

my first purchase for sprout! A bit bland, I know, but not knowing if it’s a boy or girl (or what I will need even), I thought it’d be the safest choice!

I bought everything at La Redoute – Vertbaudet

  1. Wow sounds exiting! It must be amazing.. good luck with your new sprout and may both of you have lots and lots of goodies.. hehehehe

    Hugs & Kisses:)

  2. Nobody seems to understand my frustration about shopping for me while pregnant…. Reading your words made me think: yeap!!!! Just like that….. Big enough for your own usually clothes, but not big enough to fit pregnant cloths…. GRRRRR!!! Don’t worry, you’ll be bigger and then… you’ll find out: pregnant clothes sucks!!!

    Love you!!!

  3. A propósito: compra interiores de abotoar ao lado, vais ver a diferença que fazem dos restantes… Muito mais simples de vestir e despir…. 😉

  6. Hi Lynsey! Congratulations on your pregnancy! When are you due? I bought my bathing suit online at www. laredoute.be, but they don’t seem to carry it anymore, only these http://www.laredoute.be/BE/fr/achat-vertbaudet-automne-hiver-09-future-maman-maillot-de-bain.aspx?categoryid=57509599. It does seem to be available in the UK though:http://www.laredoute.co.uk/style/adidas-One-piece-Maternity-Swimsuit.aspx?ProductId=324166016&DocumentId=542409&CompanyId=R&ECC=R000000087&ac1=RIO012.
    Good luck!
