I have been looking around at places like motherhood for future buys but all their 'active' clothes do not look like anything you could workout in and are usually 100% cotton.
I saw those sweet Assos that fromica posted about but I don't think that'll get it :D
Any suggestions for places I can find good deals? I don't need them yet but I am sure I will in a few months. Thanks
I am supposed to go on my first bike ride in six weeks on Sunday and I am really looking forward to it! Dizzy spells are rare now

Title 9 might have something suitable.

that one piece would be good for post baby nursing, no?

But it is hard for me to justify spending that much on clothes I hopefully won't wear long after July :D...
Which is why I just put up with the cotton stuff. :)

Actually, the picture of me on the bike at 38+ weeks was in my regular polypro tights, but I'm told that I never got as popped as many women do (I have a pretty long torso).

Anyway, get all the riding in you can now! Between healing after her birth, then mastitis, then sciatica I've been pretty much knocked out of action for a while.

I can always just borrow one of my husband's jerseys for riding until I get really big near the end. Guess I'll find out how much my PI's can expand. Thanks verslowrdr

I hope you don't mind me piggy backing on this question about maternity and riding clothes. What is the rule of thumb when it comes to pregnancy and riding? I am still in my first trimester and wasn't sure what was allowed as far as riding is concerned. I see my OB doc this morning and plan to ask. But wanted a first hand opinion.

I asked the same question when I found out I was pregnant. Now 39 weeks and counting, ugh! Good luck and congrats!

Your OB is probably the best person to ask, but here is a link to what people here had to say. Most OB's won't have a problem with it these days. Just pay attention to your body and don't get overheated. My riding mellowed out a lot (didn't want to take a tumble) but I still had some great rides in those early months.

Check out some of verslowrdr's posts. If you click on her profile you can find all of the threads that she has started. She rode during her entire pregnancy, and wrote a bit about it. Other people chimed in with their experiences as well. Here is a link to one of her last post before the big day.

Holy cow, you're in the final countdown already! Dunno about you, but those last weeks went way too damn slow for me.... then I went something like 9 days overdue.... BabyCakes has been wonderful though. :)

These last weeks really do drag. I was impatient like 5 weeks ago! :p You have more patience than me. I have an induction scheduled for next week (2 days after the due date). Glad to hear BabyCakes is doing well and keeping you happy :) stay tuned ;)

Let's just put it this way: I got a call at work from the nurse at my practice. "SO.... do you want to have that baby today? Because the doctor could induce this afternoon...." The words out of my mouth were: "I'll be down there in an hour!!!"

Man I wish I had someone to hang out and be pregnant with! I think I am going to take some prenatal yoga classes soon so I'll at least get to be around some others then.
That did seem to fly by for you Pfunk. I am just a little over fifteen weeks and it already seems to be going sloooow.
I agree with the others about talking to your OB. Mine told me I could ride but to listen to my body, be more careful (walking over down trees, for example, instead of riding) and stay hydrated. The nurse I met with four weeks prior to the doctor told me to stay off the bike till I asked the doc for permission though.
I have only been able to ride a few times. Last Sunday I was at the gym and had a complete blood sugar nose dive ~ dizzy, shaking, nauseous ~ so I am just chilling out this week. maybe I'll feel good enough to ride by the weekend
