Cute Summer Shoes for Pregnant Feet

During my first pregnancy, I told people that I didn’t miss drinking. It was true. Going without wine was easy. What was hard was when, in the last months of pregnancy, I found I could not bend over. Well, I could, but the process of hoisting myself back up made me resemble a Weeble or one of those inflatable clown punching bags with the weighted bottom. I was profoundly unsteady.

This was a problem at the end of my first pregnancy because I had a December due date. Winter means snow boots and putting them on became kind of a contortionist event every morning. And did I mention that my boot squished my swollen ankles? Yeah. HAWT. And once I was indoors again, the only comfortable shoes I had were clogs. That I wore with socks. It was not a look that would catch on.

This time, I’m due in June so boots are not going to be a third trimester issue. Flip-flops and summery slip-ons are gonna rock my world, baby! I’m so excited about this that I’m already shopping for cute footwear that I can shove my sausage toes into without having to bend around my bump.

Check out the cute preg-friendly shoes I’ve found so far!
