Maternity Exercise Clothes Review and Give-Away

sweating for twoHave you seen any cute maternity exercise clothes at your local department store? Were the maternity exercise clothes you found affordable? I had a very hard time finding cute fitness apparel when I was pregnant with Emma. I really wanted something to get me through the awkward stage when people at the gym weren’t sure that I was pregnant because I was only showing a little, so several of them said really ignorant things like, “Hey, I see you in here training people a lot, but are you not able to workout much yourself?” Or, “Hey, are you not working your abs as much recently?” … Yes, I promise those questions are verbatim around 18 weeks pregnant. Read more of the ignorant comments from guys at the gym here.

This week I have the privilege of partnering with fellow pregnant FitFluential ambassadors to bring you a great prenatal give-away series. Katie from Moms Little Running Buddy, and I reviewed and are giving away an entire maternity exercise clothes outfit from For Two Fitness! Check out my “Sweating for Two” shirt to the right. So cute, right? Katie is also featured in her “Running for Two” shirt.

maternity exercise clothesWhen I saw the shirts on the For Two Fitness website, I wasn’t sure if I would like the material. However, I LOVE it! After the first workout I did in the shirt, my shorts were soaked with sweat, but my shirt was not wet at all. It’s a great mix of materials. I have worn the shirt for 3 workouts so far and gotten countless compliments. Even from my male clients. And it’s nice to know that no one will mistake my baby bump for some pudge or a post holiday gut.

I am so excited that one lucky winner will have the chance to win both a For Two Fitness maternity exercise clothes shirt AND the Capri pants. But, here’s something even cooler: For Two Fitness has extended a 20% discount to ANYONE who wants to purchase the apparel. Just enter the code: FitGiveaway before Feb 1, 2013.

    I’m a new mom-to-be so I don’t have any personal advice, but some of the best advice I’ve heard is to do what’s best for YOU and YOUR family. Everyone and every child is different!

  2. Lindsey says:

    The best thing I did to feel good during my pregnancy was to keep moving! I was put on semi-bedrest for a couple weeks and asked if I could go back to my normal workouts because I felt so much better!! So keep up the workouts!!

  3. rachel says:

    I’ve been trying to keep up with exercising but a cold put me on the sidelines and now I’m struggling getting back into the swing of things!

  4. Becca G says:

    I am a first time mom myself, so I don’t have any advice, but will certainly be checking back to see what advice is given!

  5. Stephanie Angle says:

    Don’t follow the I can eat anything I want because I’m pregnant. Choose to eat healthy and you will feel great and so will baby!

  6. Kristie says:

    I’m not a mom (yet!) so I don’t have any advice from experience, but I guess the advice I hear most is to enjoy it because it’ll fly by!

  7. Kristie says:

    I follow Fit Pregnancy and Parenting on Twitter (and, I just got yelled at by wordpress to “slow down” because I’m posting comments too fast haha!)

  8. Anonymous says:

    IM following and i also believe best advice for moms to be is to listen to yourself and do what you think is right !!!

  9. Jean Newfield says:

    I am a new mom to be too so I don’t have any personal advice but I do recommend praying for your children or future child each day. I am only 12 weeks but I have been praying daily for this little baby and that they may grow in the grace and knowledge of my Lord and Savior Jesus Christ.

  10. Jo says:

    Stay active SOMEhow, even if it looks drastically different than you’re used to. Your body and baby will thank you during labor and beyond!

  11. Sarah says:

    Whatever you do, DO NOT STOP WORKING OUT DURING PREGNANCY (unless you have to)! I had to stop running due to the procedure we went through to get pregnant, and it has been so hard to get back into the routine.

  12. Krista says:

    My advice to new moms (or pregnant moms for that matter) is to research, research, research. Don’t just do something bc other moms, or even the pediatrician, tell you that’s what you should do. Find out for yourself what is best. 🙂

  13. HM says:

    New Mom advice? Sleep while you can. I’m pregnant with #2 and there is no rest time in sight… enjoy the last couple moments before your life gets that much better!

  14. Brittany says:

    Advise for moms to be- the more you let your young toddler get away with, the more fights you will have when they can talk and negotiate! Don’t let them do it once if your not ok with them doing it ALL the time..Ex: not sitting in a stroller at the mall, sitting on the counter while mom is making dinner, not sitting in a high chair for dinner etc.

  15. Nicole says:

    My best advice for new moms, is don’t be afraid or feel ashamed to ask for help. You don’t have to do it all, laundry will get done eventually. Try to relax and rest when you can and enjoy the moments when your baby is so little. They grow so fast.

    I am a mom to be so I don’t think I can offer much advice, but what I’ve learned so far is not to compare your pregnancy or any aspect of it to any of your friends, bloggers, etc. It’s different for everyone one so take everything you hear and learn with a grain of salt as it all may not be true for you and your pregnancy.

  18. Jenna says:

    The “sweating for two” tank was the first thing I bought when I found out I was pregnant! I’d love a few more comfy pieces! Def. following them on Facebook and twitter!!

  19. Nichole Carter says:

    The best advice I can give is to listen to your body. It will tell you what you can and can not handle.

    I love that there is somewhere for moms to be to get advice on exercise and nutritution for actual mom to be. Not someone who has never been through pregnancy.

  20. Danielle K says:

    My best mom-to-be advice is always follow your gut instinct! There are many times when people have told me not to worry or to worry and I felt the opposite way and following how I felt always had the best outcome with my baby 🙂

  21. Chelsea says:

    Listen to your own body, and do what’s best for you and your baby. Each mommy is different, and each baby is different. People will have all kinds if advice to give during pregnancy and as your child grows up. Some is good advice, and some should be taken lightly. Only you know what’s best for you and your baby. So, follow your heart. ❤
    "Liked" both pages, from my personal and my page. And, shared on my personal. Xoxo

  22. Breanna says:

    My best advice for moms to be is keep moving. I’m at 16 weeks and still working out and I feel great! I have slowed my lifting a bit and my running pace because I don’t want to do ANYTHING that might be dangerous, but my doctor said working out while I’m pregnant benefits both me and the baby! WIN WIN!

  23. Cheryl Auffort Fauth says:

    I am 17 weeks pregnant with my 4th child and have been working out each morning. My stamina is better through the day and I start my day off feeling loose and ready to go. My joints also do not hurt like they used to when going up stairs. I am excited to see the good results continue as I progress. Whatever you do keep active. My kids love to exercise with me if I do not get it in before they wake up. What a great example to your kids to stay healthy and fit.

  24. michelle says:

    My advice for mamas to be is trust your instincts, don’t
    listen to peoples judgments and be choosy with your dr…this is your baby and your pregnancy..you have the right to be heard.
