So Saturday (the 22nd), Hubby and I were lying in bed and my stomach felt kind of odd, so I was pushing around on it. With all of the weight loss and the position of this little one, I still didn’t have a bump, and I was anxious to feel something–even just a pooch. Anyway, I was greeted unexpectedly by a little lemon-sized ball that was significantly harder than the rest of my mush. It stuck around on the surface long enough for Husband to get a feel too, but then the little one dove back in.
I had been having some significant growing pains in the form of Round Ligament Pains, so I was hopeful that my bump was coming. Well, it seemed like the next day that this happened:
Then Christmas came. Husband and I were given some money. Some was designated for practical things, but we split the rest to spend any way we chose.
Please excuse the wrinkly pants. I wore them to death today. They are SO COMFORTABLE!
So then this happened:
Every single piece can be mixed and matched with everything (except maybe the old lady skirt) and also with the few other maternity pieces I have collected so far. I feel really good about this wardrobe, especially since most of it will transition well to nursing tops or things that I will enjoy wearing post-baby. Prepare to see a lot of that black skirt.
On a side-note, with our super-tight budget, I also have to admit that it felt really great to spend money on me. Granted, I needed these things, but I also wanted them. So, yay!
