Well, it seems to be about that time in pregnancy where I have to stop stressing out my ‘skinny’ clothes and make the move over to maternity, much to my dismay.
I thought i’d be able to hold out longer, being that baby #2 seems to be carrying a LITTLE bit higher than Holden.. but I didn’t really account for the fact that i’d suddenly explode into a HUGE preggo from just sort of looking chubby and being able to squeeze by in everything I already own.
It’s only been the past week where I feel incredibly uncomfortable once I zip and button up every single pair of pants I own- even the bigger sizes. Everything’s still feeling pretty good in the leg area but my stomach feels like it’s going to pop a button into some unsuspecting person’s eye if I breathe in too deeply.
I’ve mentioned multiple times before in previous blog entries how deep my loathing is for maternity wear. The sizing sucks, the styles suck, the fit sucks.. unless you’re either willing to go bankrupt on the super expensive shit, or you want to wear a horrendously suffocating pair of pants with that god awful hideous mess of a ‘tummy panel’ they install on every pair in order to keep them up over your disappearing hips.
Personally, I don’t like either of those options and don’t really want to settle… but I want to be COMFORTABLE, for once.. so i’m stuck between a rock and a hard place.
I’ve managed to find some cut maternity shirts for pretty cheap, and luckily have a few things left over from last pregnancy- but even pants last time were a mystery to me and I never hit the jackpot there so i’m still searching for something that fits, and doesn’t give me a frumpy horse butt in the process.
Regardless, the change over must be made, no matter how I feel about the way it looks or how perfectly it fits.. because ONE more day in a pair of jeans that constricts my insides so badly that it causes braxton hicks and i’ll go insane and tear them off. And no one wants to see a preggo tearing clothes off…. no one normal anyways.

You know that feeling when you don't chew a chip all the way and it cuts you all the way down and you swear it's gonna kill you, but you go ahead have another right after? That's what it's like when you decide to have another kid.
For any parent who's ever had a kid who thinks they're more grown up than they are... and proves themselves wrong-- this story is for you holdinholden.com/2017/12/10-g…
