Five months ago, my life forever changed.  After four long and challenging years of trying to start a family I found out I was pregnant.  It was Father’s day weekend when I started to suspect something was different.  Two days later I finally realized that I might be pregnant and decided to test the ‘waters’ to see if I was right. An incredible surprise to both me and my husband, that little stick showed two pink lines. Yup, my life forever changed that day.

I was hesitant the first few months to say anything to anyone.  I had previously had an ectopic pregnancy and was fearful that something could happen to this pregnancy so I opted to hide what was going on for as long as I could.  After previously having weight loss surgery I went from a size 18-20 to a size 10 and I loved my new wardrobe.  Now this new wardrobe was fitting tighter and tighter and as my baby grew my tolerance for my clothing did not.  I soon began to feel frumpy, fat and bleh which is hard enough on a normal day but add the hormones of pregnancy and man-o-man it’s a recipe for hoodies and sweatpants, both which are incredibly comfortable yet not appropriate to wear everywhere.


I noticed I might have a problem when I got caught wearing flip flops and yoga pants to work one day.  It was one of my low points in my pregnancy, but one that forever changed my perspective; I needed to get my ‘groove’ back and fast. Like any first time pregnant woman, I took to the internet and began looking at options for cute and reasonably priced maternity clothes.  I had never explored this part of any store before and I had no idea where I could find clothes that would be comfortable and cute without breaking my bank.

PinkBlush Maternity: Stylish Mother-to-Be Clothes

Having found BabyCenter, an online forum for pregnant women, I signed up and found a thread on maternity clothes.  I read a few reviews from mom’s-to-be and heard about this website PinkBlush.  I poured through the website and instantly found a site full of cute and modern maternity clothes that were so different from my hooded sweatshirts and sweatpants; I was beyond interested in what I was finding.  A few days later I received an offer from PinkBlush Maternity through our blog to try out their maternity clothes.  I looked at this as a sign from above that it was officially time to break out of my size 10’s and bust into the world of maternity wear.

I went back to my list of dream items from PinkBlush and picked out two adorable outfits. The first one I chose was a dress, I don’t wear a ton of dresses in my everyday life but I wanted something that could grow with me over the next few months. The PinkBlush Navy Blue Button Sash Maternity Dress has a tie waist to accommodate the ever growing bump ,as well as a button top for breast feeding after the baby is born.

The second outfit I chose was a fun top that could be worn with everything from jeans to shorts to leggings.  I chose the summer version of the PinkBlush Navy Blue Rust Chevron Maternity Tunic. Both outfits are amazingly comfortable and pieces that I will continue to wear the next four months.

Having resolved to dress better, I have started to build on my new wardrobe and added a few more pieces.  I can honestly say that the outfits I got from PinkBlush are my favorites and ones that I wear often.  As my bump grows I get more and more excited about showing it off with style and comfort… and without the sweatpants!
