Review - Bravado Designs Body Silk Seamless Yoga Nursing Bra

A lot of things change and grow during pregnancy. One of these is your belly and another is your bust, amongst over things! You can very quickly change sizes. I've gone up almost 3 cups sizes so far and I'm only 22 weeks. I feel like I grew in the early weeks really quickly. I'm only quite petite so having a larger bust does look quite strange on me, it feels really weird too. It also caused me some problems. The main one... backache. By the end of the day I was in quite a bit of pain and really sore.

Enough was enough. The maternity bras needed to come out.

My current favourite is the Body Silk Seamless Yoga Nursing Bra from Bravado Designs. I have some of their other bras too and I love all of them. They are so soft, comfy and really supportive, plus they look cute!

I have the charcoal heather colour and really love the design. It isn't ugly and the colour is lovely. Mark has even commented saying he really likes the colour and design. As it's seamless you can wear it under top, you have to be careful about the straps as they are generally thicker than regular bras but this just helps with the support. Also as it is wire free it's perfect for a growing bust during pregnancy, you have to be careful with wires during pregnancy as they can dig in and be really uncomfortable and cause harm. As a nursing bra apart of the bra unclips for easy access while feeding. There are also removable foam inserts for added comfort and support.

It is available in sizes up to XL and fits really well. There is also a handy size guide on the website if you aren't sure which size you will be.

As the bra is also a yoga bra it has a sporty edge, the straps cross over which is super cute and great if you want to wear it to work out in after baby is born. It also has ANTI-MICROBIAL: Silverbreeze™ technology that prevents the growth of odour-causing bacteria. Perfect for low impact exercise or just chasing around after children all day.

I really love the comfort, style and practical aspects of bravado bras. You can use them throughout pregnancy, into motherhood for nursing and once your journey is over you can easily convert the bra into a regular bra. Meaning they are long lasting and great value. The bra also washes really well and honestly still looks like new. A pregnancy must have in my eyes!

Have you tried Bravado?

21 Weeks Pregnant - Baby #3

This week baby girl is 7 inches long. She still has plenty of space inside the uterus to twist and turn. She will also be sleeping for up to 12-14 hours a day. She swallows a bit of amniotic fluid each day now and depending what I eat the fluid will taste of that.

This week my nausea is really bad. I'm still  on tablets so luckily not acting being sick but the nausea is a killer some days. Most of the time is 24/7, if it isn't then it just goes away after I've eaten and returns in a couple of hours. I've also felt really hungry this week. I do feel like I get quite full quite quickly though but it always only lasts an hour or so. I haven't craved much this week apart from apple pie and ice cream. Heartburn is my other main symptom. I'm still feeling loads of movements, some days more than others but I imagine she tires herself out!

Waist - 28.5, back to what it was at 19 weeks.
Belly - 33 inch, that's half an inch on last week.
Weight - +1lb so 8lbs so far overall.

Siblings - July

This month has flown by so quickly. I almost forgot all about the siblings linky. It just comes around so quickly.

This last month Paige and Parker are still the best of friends. They play even more and Parker imagination is amazing. They usually love playing with figures/teddies and making them talk but will play with just about anything and everything. Parker can be quite bossy at times and most of the times Paige just goes along with it. She can also be bossy so they kind of balance each other out.

Parker still adores Paige and repeats every work she says. She thinks it's so funny how he copies her. She is still an amazing big sister and is so loving towards Parker and bump.

This months picture was taken just as we were getting Parker up after his nap. Paige asked if she could wake him up and I said yes. She carefully opened his door and sat down next to this cot. She started stroking his arm while gently calling his name to wake him. He laid there for about 5 minutes just enjoying her stroking his arm.

They make my heart melt into a huge puddle. They are so sweet. I'm a little bit sad to lose it just being the two of them but so excited to see them with their baby sister and I get a few more months to enjoy just them both together.
