I bought my first pair of maternity pants a few weeks ago. Until this morning they still had the tags on them because I was undecided and I felt they were too long. But as I ripped through my closet like a mad woman this morning, putting on and then throwing every pair of works pants that I owned across the room, I decided to bite the bullet and put on the maternity pants.
OMG… THIS is what I’ve been missing?!
For the last month, I’ve been wearing my normal pants and leaving them unbuttoned at the top, and in the last week they’ve been very uncomfortable around my midsection. Today I slipped those glorious pants on and all felt right with the world. Or with my belly at least. I’ve been sucking out like a mofo today and I like to think that Niblet is content with my happiness too – and a lil’ extra room. J
So this week’s mission is to find some jeans and other casual maternity pants because I may or may not have had a massive “closet breakdown” on Saturday morning over having nothing to wear. (Neal has been sworn to silence on such an event.) Maternity clothes selection is slim and what is out there is expensive, so we’ll see. I’m keeping my eyes open and for any moms out there with suggestions – let me know!
