My shorts and pants are tight and riding down, my tops are riding up leaving the baby belly and love handles on display. Not what you want! I love running in skirts much more than in shorts so I had to have the Fit Momma skirt from runningskirts.com. It is cut much more generously than the regular running skirts in the same size. It has built in shorties, which was my only concern because those can ride up into a bunched, uncomfortable mess but these only budge slightly. I've worn it for a 3 miler and I only had to tug them back into place maybe once. It has a belly panel that can be worn up or folded down. It's still a little loose at the top so I wear it folded down under my belly. I highly recommend this skirt for anyone looking for maternity running gear. I just wish it came in more colors besides black!
My mother-in-law got me a gift certificate to fitmaternity.com for Christmas and I got my order in last week. The first thing I've tried is this cotton/bamboo blend tank from Ocean Lily. It's a pretty heavy duty fabric that is form fitting but stretchy. It is really long which is ideal for me but probably wouldn't work on ladies of below-average height. I've worn this running once and loved it. It stays in place, doesn't rub anywhere the wrong way and is comfy. I'm not sure how it'll do in the heat since it's black and pretty thick, but hopefully it will still be good. So far, two thumbs up!
On the pregnancy front, I'm 21 weeks today and the baby is developing taste buds this week. She is also now able to absorb small amounts of sugar and water from the amniotic fluid. According to the scale this morning, I didn't gain any weight last week which I find hard to believe. I'm still up 12 lbs but according to my baby books I should pack on some lbs in the next few weeks.
