What Are Your Maternity Clothes Styles?

~ Posted on Wednesday, July 6, 2011 at 12:18 AM ~

Being pregnant doesn't mean the end of the world for our wardrobe selections or that you are going to end up wearing huge size clothing throughout your pregnancy!

Personally, I feel that being pregnant should not be a hindrance to us in being a stylish and yet looking comfortable as a preggy mum! And I also believe that we should be proud of our growing belly instead of hiding it under baggy or big sized clothes.

Of course, the wardrobe choices will be much lesser compared to pre-pregnancy time but I'm always the type of person who goes for blouses and pants that can 'grow' with my growing body size hehehe...

I'm close to 8 months pregnant now and my maternity clothes are still pretty OK so far... As for my maternity clothes styles, I will try to mix and match blouses or comfortable T-shirts with my maternity pants. I do have a couple of hand-me-downs maternity dresses from my sisters-in law but most of these dresses couldn't fit me anymore. So, I still prefer the good ol' mix and match styles of mine.

Though of course, I do wish that my maternity clothes styles could be more like this:

Or something casual and yet still chic looking like this:

So what are your maternity clothes styles?

Forgetting How to Breathe...

2 more months to go before Spicy Baby's arrival!!!

And I'm really, really, really starting to worry - especially when I realised now that I actually forgot how to breathe! (As in breathing techniques during the labor...)

Oh man... I am in trouble...

I read through my post (in my old blog) about my supernatural childbirth with Ben and, nope... clever me did not note down what I did for my breathing techniques during the labor. Ah heck...I need to dig out my antenatal class notes - which was taken 2 years ago!

Seriously, I totally forgot about the breathing techniques even when I was in the midst of giving birth to Ben - thank God my hubby was next to me to remind me the techniques!

Of course, this time round, I kept telling and reminding my hubby to REMIND ME the breathing techniques when the time comes cos' I'll be sure to forget it even if I memorise it by heart now.

I just hope I won't go to this level...
