No matter who you are spending Thanksgiving with, you’re going to put some thought in the outfit you’re wearing, especially if you’re pregnant. Maybe you’re going to a casual Friendsgiving event with your closest friends and need something you can lounge in, or spending your first Thanksgiving with your partner’s very very extended family and need something nice but not too nice. Or perhaps you get to look forward to a formal event with your very particular in-laws and feel the pressure to dress to impress. No matter the setting, feeling appropriately dressed for the kind of shindig you’re attending is part of feeling comfortable, and that’s especially important on a day that can be physically demanding for a pregnant person.
