I swim so slow while pregnant that bikinis work well for me. I went lap swimming today and wore a bikini and found it works great but Im also going at a snails pace :)
Ah Lilytiger!!! You are so inspiring with your workouts- I really wish I had the gym access/time/energy to keep up at my old level. So awesome!! I am not running but I think I would of I wasn't having twins.. the belly bra is great but the calves are HURTING after hikes.. its horrible, nothing makes it better for me either. I would be curious to try running but my stomach feels so heavy Im vainly afraid I'll trigger some stretch marks and regret the bouncing..
I hiked all weekend after my jet lag wore off, I was soooo slow but it was nice to feel the mountains in my legs.. AND I joined the public pool here (sort of a YMCA, very cheap) today and started to swim laps since walking is hard on my joints if I do it everyday, running is out (but I have thought about trying it anyway) and biking is really hard with my lovely hemorrhoids which seem to come and go, so I can't on that either .. I just wish the swimming 'felt' like a better workout, its really unrewarding for me for some reason- I like to sweat a bit :D
