Jessica Simpson is making us smile again. Recently spotted in very comfortable sweats or pajamas maybe, she did appear on route to the gym. Here’s a girl that took pregnancy weight gain to a whole new level just a year ago, while still sporting super high heels, only to become the Weight Watcher Spokesperson and get quickly svelte to surprise us once again (and herself apparently), by becoming pregnant less than six months after just had her baby. We do have to admire her discipline in working out during pregnancy, which is a habit may expecting women drop by the wayside when morning sickness or pregnancy cravings appear (sometimes at the same time).
Although Jessica is usually quite the fashion mogul, it looks like her wardrobe could benefit from a maternity tracksuit, like this chic one by Maternal America:
This comfy maternity tracksuit is made to fit over your growing belly and has a smooth waistband and drawstring on the pants that can be worn under your belly. You can wear this suit to the gym or the mall and stroll about in comfort and style.
Another great choice and a great buy is Noppies Maternity Tracksuit in Sparrow. This fashionable tracksuit has been worn on the runways in Europe for everyday wear or gym wear. The jacket is super long and made to stretch comfortably over your expanding belly (and zip both directions). This will be your go-to tracksuit jacket for the grocery, errands or a run in the park.
Doctors and fitness experts recommend maintaining a regular fitness routine throughout your pregnancy to help you stay healthy and feel better. There’s evidence that exercise during pregnancy can prevent you from getting gestational diabetes, help you relieve stress and build stamina that you will need for labor and delivery.
Although you will want to maintain a regular workout routine, you will want to listen to your body and only exercise in moderation. Also opt for low impact fitness excercises as your tendons and ligaments are looser during pregnancy and your center of gravity is also shifting, not to mention your joints are supporting more weight as your pregnancy progresses.
Remember to always consult your doctor before embarking on a new exercise regime during pregnancy or if you notice any difficulty during exercise including bleeding or spotting or any pains.
