First of all, thank you all so much for the comments (and reassurances!) on my last post. I felt SO much better after reading them — I do have a lot of trust in my doctor, and I know that she and her team will be doing everything possible to keep me and the baby healthy. And, ultimately, I’m going to try to not sweat my lack of a formal “plan” — but I’m still going to make sure that I’ve done the research into my options and that Chad knows what I want as well.
I was looking through old folders on my computer this weekend, and I found these from early February (at almost six months pregnant) and realized that I’d somehow never posted them! I need to keep better track of my maternity outfits, because in a few weeks (!) they’ll all be extremely dated. (I may post a few after the baby is born, since outfit photos will probably be the last thing on my mind during those first few weeks with a newborn…)
I remember thinking that I was “huge” when I took these, and now that makes me laugh. (This Instagram photo, where I claimed to be ginormous? Oh, that makes me smile…)
Little did I know, “huge” was on the horizon right… about… now. And I still have five more weeks to go!
When I first got pregnant, people asked me a lot whether I thought that my style would change with the baby bump, and now that I’m eight months in, I honestly don’t think that it did. Sure, my options were a lot more limited — it’s hard to suddenly lose 95% of your wardrobe because nothing fits — but ultimately, I gravitated to the same bold colors, easy silhouettes, and polished, relaxed vibe that I’ve always loved.
Still, though… gosh, I’m looking forward to getting to wear my clothes again. For a girl who loves fashion, the last few months have been a bit of a bummer — I hardly fit into anything from non-maternity stores, and the selection at maternity stores is just dismal. Even if I don’t lose the baby weight right away, I’m really looking forward to picking up a few new fun pieces for Spring and Summer!
