Maternity item not to skimp on….

When I was pregnant with ryder, around month 7 I started getting light headed a lot. I actually collapsed in the grocery store once. We went to the doctor and they put me in the hospital for a day to run tests on me. I came back perfectly fine. I was as healthy as can be. But the light headedness kept happening.

Then one day it hit me……It was my pants! I’m not even kidding when I say that. I was wearing my same leggings and workout pants that I wore before I got pregnant. Now that my belly was bigger they were getting tighter and starting to cut off circulation. So after a workout or just having worn them all day, the lack of circulation would get to me and make me light headed.

I know it’s so stupid. I’m sure you’re wondering why I didn’t buy maternity pants/leggings. In all honesty, I didn’t think I needed to! My leggings still fit so I figured why buy new ones!

I have learned my lesson! Just because they fit your legs doesn’t mean it’s fitting to your belly. Even light pressure around your waist can restrict blood flow. They make maternity pants for a reason!
