Running with a bump
Hi, i am 23 weeks pregnant and want to continue running as far through my pregnancy as my body will allow. Can anyone recommend a good support belt? At the moment i feel twinges in my lower stomach muscles for the first mile or two, but it wears off if I keep going. I have looked online at the belts and the Nexcare one seems to be the popular choice but looks scarily bulky, can it really work with Lycra running gear?!
I'm 6 months and my boyfriend recently bought me a top and leggings from this site www.fittamamma.com for Christmas.I was going to get a bump band but my sister advised me against it- she said hers was a nightmare and kept moving all over the place.The clothes that I got from fittamamma have support built into them so I think they'll be great when my bump gets a bit bigger. Hope this helps!
My friend's midwife kitted her out with an enormous tubigrip...might be worth considering!
I agree with Run2Mum - I have the capris and a top from www.fittamamma.com and they are an absolute godsend! I think I will keep wearing them even after little one arrives
