indiblue :  thanks for the info!! I’ll check Gap fit too – I have a sports bra and shorts from there that I love.

indiblue :  moving comfort (now owned by Brooks) are definitely the way to go for sports bras for nursing. great support, and the styles with velcro adjustable straps are easy for nursing.

in terms of support belts, I am running through my 2nd pregnancy (currently 33 weeks) and I use the Gabriella belt. Target’s maternity running capris have actually been my favorite! Athleta’s regular shorts with wide waist bands worked for me in warmer months (my first was born in Sept). I got lucky with a pair of Athleta maternity running tights before they sold out/discontinued that line.

indiblue : yep! that’s mostly what I wear the belt for. With my first pregnancy I think I started wearing the belt around 24 weeks and this time it was about 26?

indiblue :  I’m 28 weeks and keep thinking about trying my my belt but it seems like it will press right on my bladder and make me have to pee more! A lot of times the feeling goes away after half a mile or so.  I will try it one of these days – I still don’t feel like my little bump needs to be supported while I run or workout otherwise.
