Am I the only one?

Subject: Maternity clothes.

So I bought a ton of maternity clothes for the summer before last when I was pregnant with Jack. Not that I really needed them, because I had a pretty much non existant belly until at LEAST 20 weeks. Now I’m having a SUMMER baby, and it's going to be a big one :), so I need more winter-ish clothes for the next 3 months and have exactly 4 pairs of jeans. Somehow these jeans (that fit me when I was BIG and pregnant Fall of ’09) don’t fit now. I know I’m not that much smaller this time around (from my pre-pregnancy weight) but these pants totally don’t fit in the butt/thigh area. The slide off all. day. long. Am I the only one who seems to need two sets of sizes? I only gained 30lbs last time, which I thought was pretty reasonable, but apparently I was in denial as to how much of that weight was just ‘momma pounds’ and not baby/amniotic fluid/placenta pounds.

So I need maternity pants, off to Old (can you say free shipping and returns?) I go. . .or maybe I can just live in these yoga pants until I gain those 'much needed' pounds? Hmm.

Here's a webcam belly pic from last week. Enjoy!

  1. It's not just you--my pants from Lucy didn't fit...I blame natural hip expansion.

    Old Navy has an extra 25% off their clearance right now as well!
