and this week according to the bump...
things are starting to get all sorts of real these past few days. my belly seems to be growing daily, and it's official, my pre-pregnancy pants no longer fit! i actually purchased my first two pairs of maternity pants today. baby gap had some amazing clearance deals going on and i got one pair for $14 and the other for just 7 buck! i refuse to spend big money on clothing i'll only wear for a few months, so this was considered quite a successful day indeed! i think i will give one exception to a good pair of jeans though. if any mama's out there have a favorite maternity jean that got them through the big belly months, i would LOVE to get some recommendations. jeans are a huge part of my wardrobe and i'm feeling kinda lost without them :(
in other preggo news, i've also become a bit of an emotional mess this week. i can cry at the drop of a hat! i'm considering it a pretty impressive skill as of now... we'll see how i look at it if it continues for longer then a few days. i know it's all hormones, and that it tends to be at it's worst when i'm trying to figure out something to wear. it's a tough thing suddenly not knowing how to dress yourself, and on top of that not feeling attractive in anything you do happen to still fit into. it's all part of this fun process, i know. i'm hoping this mini shopping spree i had today will help with some of my clothing issues. let's keep our fingers crossed shall we!
here's to a weekend of no tears... hopefully!
