This is my last week in the second trimester, AH. This is getting really, really, really, real. My belly is for sure feeling nice and large and that’s why I was so excited to find out my favorite swimwear brand was releasing maternity swim bottoms. Living in Southern California and having a husband who practically has salt water in his veins means we end up at the beach pretty often. So that leaves me with two options, either throw on a bathing suit and enjoy myself or try to wear some sort of semi beach friendly outfit and end up being uncomfortable and sweaty. Yuck. Honestly, I’ve never been the biggest fan of swimsuits because of the whole people seeing me half naked thing, but since having Elouise my views on body image have changed drastically.
