Pregnancy second time around is completely different. First time around I didn’t have a busy
Tasmanian Devil toddler to focus on and because I got pregnant in October, having a baby the following year made it feel longer. At Christmas, we imagined what it would be like at the next Christmas. This time around I got pregnant in March and will have our baby in the same year. We weren’t thinking last Christmas that we would have another baby next Christmas, so it feels so much shorter and faster!
I also feel a lot bigger this time around – it’s partly because it’s common second time around, and I also have my Placenta that is more forward, pushing it all out. I personally love a big, round bump, visually – but I am very uncomfortable – already! It’s also not easy to do my radio show, when my lungs feel squashed and I need to use my diaphragm to talk. I feel conscious of sounding a little out of breath.
At 23 weeks pregnant (6 months) – time is flying!
While I can’t exactly change those things, I can change how I feel in my clothing. The last thing I want to feel is uncomfortable.
Liezel, from Foxy Mama kindly reached out to me and offered to send me some key items from her Maternity range.
I’m going to share the 3 looks.
1. Foxy Mama Navy Blue Maternity Pants
Let’s begin with the navy blue maternity pants (they come in black too.) I love that you can dress these up and down. Add a t-shirt and sneakers, or give it a more corporate feel like I have in these pics below.
They have a comfortable belly band and a subtle stitching on the front of the leg, which elongates and slims! I want to order these in black now.

2. Foxy Mama Floral Maternity Dress
I love a beautifully feminine dress and this one can be dressed up or down. Add heels, or wear sneakers / ballet pumps. It has a round neck with 3/4 sleeves and the dress fits just on the knees.

3. Foxy Mama Floral Mint Green Nursing Hoodie
Thank you so much Liezel for the beautiful clothes. I really appreciate it.
