I had to dedicate an entire post to BLANQI for the simple fact that they made my last trimester bearable in the most fashionable way possible. Maternity support is so important and a game changer as you transition from trimester to trimester.
It’s crazy how drastically different each trimester can be. The first trimester I was hush hush about my bundle of joy, wearing loose fitting clothing and sneaking crackers and ginger ale at work as snacks to keep the nausea down. Second trimester was a breeze for the most part other than heartburn. I was still working out, and had fun playing dress up as my belly grew. However, as soon as my Third Trimester hit, I’ve been dealing with THE worst heart burn causing me to throw up almost every evening. I feel just huge and extremely uncomfortable at all times. With the constant kicks to the ribs, sore back, lack of sleep, leg cramps and achy feet, I’m pretty excited to be done with the belly and finally get to meet baby girl.
She is however worth every complaint, so don’t get it twisted! I just wish I had discovered BLANQI earlier on in my pregnancy to help. They are a support wear line, designed to smooth, lift and secure before pregnancy, during and forever after. The belly support band provides abdominal lift and support, alleviating baby weight and reducing stress on the lower back. This was the game changer for someone like me who works on her feet all day, I have definitely put their designs to the test and they have passed with flying colors!
I’m excited to give away a pair of BLANQI leggings, for you guys to try for yourself. Head over to our Instagram page @fiftytwothursdays this evening to find out how to enter!
