So when I first became pregnant I was excited about going shopping in the maternity section because for some reason I remembered it being the place where a bunch of cute clothes existed …that was until you actually became pregnant and you had to try these clothes on. And then the selection seemed incredible small, nothing like you remembered it! And to top it off these clothes are so expensive, so when the tag says, it’s going to last through your entire pregnancy I thought I was getting a good deal! Here’s the problem with that “last through you entire pregnancy thing” I think you have a 50/50 shot of that actually happening, because there are a lot of things to consider here. They don’t know how big you are going to get? or how long your torso is? or how many times you are going to wash it, because these clothes fall apart too… All i’m saying is if you recently became pregnant and this is your first keep in mind you may have to go shopping again your third trimester 🙁
Are you in denial about maternity clothes? Did you have to raid your husband’s closet to find something to wear today? Do you think Kim Kardashian’s maternity clothes look great on her?If the answer to these question is yes…then you my friend are in denial. And its okay, we all transition at different times and at our own comfort level, but seriously what is the big deal? You are pregnant at this point and wearing maternity clothes is not going to change that fact. So the pants are a little weird at first with the little belly thing…just think of it as pants with built in spanks (that are broken). And really, maternity clothes are suppose to make you look better! I found this great article Dress your Bump without the Frump and pulled a pic so you could see…
I was so excited that I actually started to like maternity clothes that I didn’t even realize that I developed a slight obsession with striped shirts. In fact it really hit home when I was folding clothes from the laundry…. (see pic)
Anyway, my husband so innocently asked, I thought stripes were suppose to make you look bigger? And though I was surprised with his knowledge on fashion that did not help my collection of shirts or for my new-found love of stripes. So I may have gotten a tad bit angry….you just can’t predict these pregnancy hormones 😉 But it did make me wonder….so off to google I went and found a great article I’m Pregnant-Can I really wear stripes? and it turns out that stripes were a good fashion choice! So what do you think about stripes when your pregnant?
