Maternity Clothes

17 Aug

Went shopping today. No, all of my pants still close on me easily – but when I sit for a long time, they cut in and hurt. I guess because all of them are lower rise (not too low-rise… that would not be appropriate for my age/job title :))

So went to an outlet mall close by and bought 3 pairs of maternity jeans (one capri), 3 summer dresses, and a few shirts. All of that for $120, taxes in. Not bad, eh?

Last time I didn’t want to spend almost anything while pregnant. This time around I know that I will be wearing my maternity pants for a few months after delivery – as well the long shirts (hence I bought shirts that double as nursing tops).

The summer dresses are mostly for our planned vacation in late fall.

While trying the clothes on, I stuffed the provided belly-pillow in my jeans – and it felt like such a strong deja vu! If it weren’t for Timothy, staring at me from his stroller, this would have been too weird I think.

Anyway… I am so happy to have capri jeans to wear now while it’s still hot – and they won’t cut into my lower abdomen!!!

    Another milestone!!!

    I’m dreading doing maternity shopping as the variety is non existent here. So far I’ve been able to get away with my normal clothes but I know I have to get some outfits for comfort sake.

      It’s not very exciting here, either. Gladly, I don’t have dress code at work, so can wear pretty much whatever I want – solves half of the problem: all jeans! And the tops… well, most of my long-sleeve t-shirts I managed to stretch beyond recognition with my first pregnancy, so I intend to do the same. Just add a layer over them to cover the belly – and you’re good to go, circa the ’70s 🙂
