And baby R has decided to show his or her sweet little self.
I think I am about 19 weeks right now (I am starting to get really confused about that whole "weeks" situation... Ill confirm exactly where I am at my next appt... for all of our sakes), and the bump has come out to play!
I have found it REALLY hard not to just online shop until I absolutely drop (lots of bones) on maternity clothes. I mean... I don't want to be that girl who just wears pjs for months because nothing else fits... But I am also saving up for some pretty big life changes, you know?
So my game plan thus far has been to REALLY think and decide what my style is going to be for the duration of this baby journey, and beyond... Because Lord knows these hips weren't made for snapping back to a tiny lovely frame post-birth.
I love to wear oversized sweaters/cardigans/shalls (good for pregnancy? check!), me and leggings get along really well (good for pregnancy? check!), and a well-fitted tank pretty much wraps it all up in a nice little bow (good for pregnancy? check!)... So there you have it.
As the summer turns to fall (HAAAAALELUJAH!) I plan on wearing this uniform pretty much every day (you are welcome, co-workers). And I haven't had to invest much in this style so far, since it is all really flexible. I think I am just down to needing a few legit prego tank tops and tshirts (you know, the ones with the ever-so-fashionable rusching on the sides?), and am going to invest in some legit maternity leggings... And I believe I will be good to go!
Are you amazed at how much time and thought I have put into this wardrobe idea? Yea... I know... it's kind of ridiculous... But at the same time, I would much rather put thought into it now, and be comfortable for the next 4-5 months, then to wing it and be a miserable cry baby when I have nothing to wear.
... But that's never happened before.
So, without further ado... I introduce... My bump uniform.
