It is about time to share my wisdom and experience with you on fall/winter pregnancies and what you NEED in your closet. This is my second pregnancy in the colder months (and no, totally didn’t plan it that way!) and I have learned so much. There are many pieces that I bought and never wore or pieces that I bought and literally never wanted to take off my body. Winter is actually an amazing time to be pregnant because you can wrap your bump in all the cozy clothes and layers. Leggings are probably the best invention ever for pregnancies as well. Let’s get started!
The First and Second Trimesters:
I have to argue that what you wear on your lower half is so crucial to comfort and staying sane. Thankfully fall/winter allow for cozy leggings and well leggings. At almost 37 weeks pregnant I can tell you that putting on anything besides leggings is horrendous. I cry when I put on jeans however if you find the right pair of maternity jeans…that’s another story. Thankfully I found some pairs that worked great for different points in my pregnancy.
For the first and second trimesters, I definitely suggest actual maternity jeans. I loved these full belly panel jeans from Shop Pink Blush Maternity. They were stylish, had a bit of stretch, and stayed on comfortably. I would recommend going with the waist size you were right before pregnancy. Too small or too big will leave them falling down and downright uncomfortable.
