Maternity clothes and disgruntled males

January 26th, 2006 at 06:44 am

How is a person supposed to know what size they're going to be when in the later 2nd and 3rd trimesters??! Our first trimester is finally over and the morning sickness/fatigue have started to let up. I'm searching for sale maternity clothes, but all of them look so big! And many of them are really ugly which doesn't help my self-esteem any! I was reading some fashion book on "What Not To Wear" and the British authors had Earl Maternity Jeans as a strong recommendation. I looked online and guess how much? $140! Would it really be worth it? It's been 11 years since our last one and with the last one, I was in a very warm climate and just wore dresses a few sizes too big in stretchy fabrics. Now I'm living in a cold climate where bundling up is a necessity! LOL

After reading the Challenge #4, I went to to the Emigrant Direct site and was in the process of opening an account when it dawned on me that this really wasn't going to help my decluterring process. I already have an ING account.

The men in the house were at each other's throats this morning and I was stuck in the middle. My DH is not DS's natural father and they've been butting heads. DH really likes to have a pleasant morning, with "good mornings" and smiles and DS11 is on the opposite end of the personality spectrum with grumpy "why'd you have to take 1/2 an hour in the bathroom?" comments. I'm going to strangle both of them if they can't come to some sort of compromise. We only have one bathroom, so perhaps it's time for a schedule!!!! (with the pregnant lady having first dibs, of course). Wink

    Pregnant ladys always have first dibs!!!

    On maternity, I have been through a couple pregnancys and I usually wear cloths in a size or two bigger for the first tri and mid second, then I switch to maternity shirts and at the very end I have found a pair of large loose pants with safety pins works best!

    I think the point I am trying to make is, don''t trust other pregnant people or designers, buy what fits! (and it won't for the whole time, so get used to the same 2 or 3 pairs of jeans)

    Thanks Princess Perky! That helps. I also found some pretty cute maternity shirts at Old Navy that were very affordable. No purchases as of yet, but I'll have to start looking for some undergarments that fit soon! Smile
