maternity swimwear

Even though I only have about a month of pregnancy left, I broke down and bought a maternity swimsuit. I got this one on sale:

Looks pretty cute on that model, right?

But wait... she doesn't actually look pregnant.

So it looks more hilarious than cute on me.

But still.

Everyone told me that swimming while pregnant is just the greatest.


I went to the gym yesterday and christened the bathing suit with 20 laps in the pool.

{Related note: prayed not to run into anyone I knew at the gym while wearing a swimsuit at 8+ months pregnant.}

I felt like a normal person while in that pool. I felt great.

Then I had to get out of the pool.

And I felt like I weighed 500 pounds.

That wasn't the fun part.

Conclusion: Swimming while pregnant? Highly recommended.


  1. I don't think that model IS pregnant. Perhaps she had a large breakfast before her photo shoot. :)

  2. Cute suit! I'm highly impressed that you got it and wore it, all the while knowing that God might not answer your prayer the way you'd hoped! I can't wait to meet your little one!

  3. I LOVE pregnant swimming. In my last few weeks with L (who was a week overdue) we would go to the Y and I would just float around for hours while M played with N in the shallow end. It felt sooo good-- the only way I could get my back to stop hurting. Have fun with your cute new suit!
