This past weekend, I went out to do some maternity shopping. I don't need pants yet, but some of my shirts are getting a little too short. They look fine in the morning, but after I eat all of my meals, my shirt is riding up and it looks stupid....so I bit the bullet, went out and got some clothes.
My first stop was the maternity section at Kohls. What a joke. There were 3 small racks of clothing. That's it, just 3 -- and hardly anything in my size. I ended up heading over to the clearance rack and found a summer dress for $4.90 and shirt for $3.20. That made me feel a lot better about their crappy selection!
I then headed over to the Motherhood Maternity Outlet in Franklin Mills. I did a little better there -- I got 2 dresses for work and a pretty black shirt and only spent $51. For shits and giggles, I tried on that "baby belly" that they provide in the dressing room. It's literally a lumpy round pillow on a strap...not too attractive under my dresses.
Last night before I went to bed, I laid out my outfit for the following day. A pair of Express Editor pants and a black shirt. These pants fit me a week and a half ago with a belly band...but I barely got them over my butt this morning. They were so tight around my hips and butt that there were these awful creases in them that I would never be able to hide! I couldn't believe that my butt grew that much in a week and a half! I need to get some cardio in or something...
The babies are the size of a peach this week and are forming teeth and vocal cords. I should enjoy this quiet time with them because once they make their arrival, I'm sure they'll be putting their vocal cords to good use!
