Since finding out I was pregnant my body and emotions have definitely been on a roller coast ride. There are days that I feel completely normal and others I feel like I am a whale and can’t fit into any of my normal clothes. I remember freaking out and telling my husband, “This cannot be normal, do you think I am having twins, why do I look 5 months pregnant?”. It wasn’t until I joined The Bump and Baby Center that I realized I was 100% not alone and what I was going through was completely normal. Thank goodness!! 🙂
Below are some of the looks I would put together when I was out and about in my first trimester to help make the baby bump less noticeable. One of the hardest parts is trying to keep it a secret for as long as you can because I literally didn’t want to tell any one, other than our families, the good news until I saw our doctor and got the “OK” after my 12 week checkup. Not only is that hard, but it is almost impossible sometimes, especially at work lol. Your co-workers see you 8+ hours a day, so I will always be thankful that have my own office so I can hid away when I wasn’t feeling my absolute best.
My Top 4 Pieces for the First Trimester
- Flowy Shirts
- Boyfriend Denim
- Shift/ Swing Dresses
- Maxi Skirts
Flowy Shirt- These are completely essential during your entire pregnancy and I am so thankful that the loose flowy tops are all the rage right now. Thankfully, I own so many that I won’t have to shop for many more of them.
Boyfriend Denim- The boyfriend denim allows you to still dress like your self, but give you the extra wiggle room in your jeans to be comfortable.
Maxi Skirt- All hail the maxi skirt because it is always a crowd pleaser!! A recommendation is to get one that has tiny stripes/ prints going vertically; they really hid the look of a baby bump. Be sure to look out for my Style The Baby series were I will have different ways to Style The Baby Bump from month to month. 🙂
