THE MINI APARTMENT - second trimester workouts you can do anywhere - sponsored by Pink Blush maternity clothes

Now that I’m in my second trimester (I’m 22 weeks now!), I’ve been devoting more time to working out and staying active. Whether it be going on walks outdoors or following fitness videos on YouTube, getting my sweat on is important to me to stay fit and healthy throughout this second pregnancy.

Only thing is, I was in desperate need of updating my active wear with pieces that actually fit. I’m growing a lot faster this time around, and my previous workout clothes from being pregnant with izzy were a bit snug and constricting, making it hard to get motivated to workout.

So when Pink Blush reached out to me to do a collaboration on dressing the bump, I was so excited to see what I could put together from their selection of trendy maternity clothes! I decided to go with maternity fitness clothing since it’s been a real struggle for me to find quality workout pieces that fit properly, were flattering, and stayed put while working out.

The Best Non Maternity Clothing To Wear During Pregnancy

Maternity clothing that checks off all the boxes: actually stylish, flattering, fits well, AND can be worn throughout your entire pregnancy? That’s hard to come by! Finding stylish and flattering clothing to wear during the majority of your pregnancy is possible – you just have to think outside the box and hunt for those perfect versatile pieces!

I’ve rounded up some of the best non-maternity clothing to wear during pregnancy that are flattering, at great price points, and are versatile to wear before/during/and after pregnancy! I own many of these items (or similar ones) myself. A lot of you have been asking to see some maternity fashion over here, so I’m hoping to show more how I dress the bump the further along we get 🙂

What’s important to know before shopping non-maternity clothing

While you’re pregnant – depending on your body  – your size will most likely change (sometimes drastically). And if it does, you will have to modify your clothing size to accommodate your growing bump. Normally, I am a pant size 2/size small in tops, but with both pregnancies I’ve gone up about 3-4 sizes in my bust, hips, and waist.

So mama-to-be, don’t get discouraged when “nothing fits” from your pre-pregnancy closet anymore. Remember that your body is doing an amazing and intense thing by growing a tiny human! And after your baby is out, it will take some time for your body to adjust and shrink down. Just breathe, learn to acclimate, and embrace your new mom bod! ❤ PS: Totally preaching this to myself, too!
