The Struggle

I think any woman who currently is, or has ever been pregnant would agree that the first trimester of pregnancy can best be described as “The Struggle”.  The struggle to come to terms with the enormous change your life is about to undergo; the struggle to not worry yourself sick about the delicate life you carry inside; the struggle to not eat everything in sight, together with the struggle to keep it all down; the struggle to stay awake after lunch and the struggle to get dressed every morning, just to name a few.

During the second and third month of pregnancy the struggle to fit into your pre-pregnancy pants gets real!  Not ready to give into maternity pants just yet, you seek solace in using the good ole’ hair tie trickbelly band and a heavy rotation of leggings.  By month four you’re sick of struggling with hair ties and your leggings are pretty much worn out and begging to be retired! Enter maternity pants!

I recently gave into my need for comfort and style and purchased these Twill Skinny Leg Maternity Pants by MOTHERHOOD Maternity in both khaki and navy and my bump couldn’t be happier!  Not only is the twill material comfortable, but its a considerably chic upgrade from cotton leggings. I also love the versatile ankle length which can be worn with heels on days I’m feeling invincible, or flats on days when “the struggle is real”.

I am so happy to be back here on Sun Fun Fashion and I really hope you all will follow along and enjoy this life and wardrobe altering journey through maternity with me!  Thanks for stopping by!

Martha
