Beach Bliss.

Nothing quite relieves me of the heat, aches & pains like a dip in the ocean. It has been my pregnancy savior. After a day at the beach I feel so relaxed, rested and blissful. I know it can be intimidating and a little uncomfortable for a pregnant woman to dress for the beach, and it took me some time to figure out what I feel good in. Since you are more sensitive to the sun when you're pregnant, I always slather on sunscreen, bring a hat and set up an umbrella so I can control how much sun I get. As far as what to wear, finding a good cover-up is important. I love this airy, scarf print one. It dances in the wind. I can't help feeling beautiful, feminine and romantic in it. Then comes the tricky part, the swimsuit...There are so many maternity one pieces and tankinis out there, but almost all of them are halter tops. I am a bosomy woman and anything tying behind my neck is a nightmare that leaves me with a killer headache. I decided to dare to bare it all. I already had this amazing bikini top by Chloe Sevigny and Opening Ceremony, so I decided to just get some comfy, inexpensive bottoms. I went with the side tie so I could adjust them as my belly grew and wouldn't have to worry about them digging in anywhere. Not only do I feel free in the beach breeze in this, but I have the support I need and everything stays put, even when I dive under the waves. I also enjoy having my belly bare - I like thinking she can feel the waves and sunshine. Sure there a bits of me that jiggle as a walk in the sand, but I try not to think about it. The ocean is so healing, inspiring and powerful I forget about my body. Rising and falling with the incoming swells and watching dolphins swim by in the distance brings me peace and harmony. I can't get enough of the majestic Pacific Ocean.
