Preggo Gets a Mini-Makeover

Oh, thank you Baby Jesus for maternity leggings.

True to the tradition..First comes love, then comes marriage, then comes baby in a baby carriage.  I am 4 months pregnant with a little girl!  Having a fine time!  Especially now that I have been able to move from my “boy fit/lazy day/couch sitting jeans” that were getting too tight (egads) into my first pair of maternity leggings.

Someone tell me WHY we torture our non-pregnant bodies with non-maternity leggings (or any non-maternity pants, really..Yes, I said that and went there).  They changed my life.  And, I can’t say that too many times.  It feels great to let it all hang out, while I am actually letting it all hang in.  Trans..for..ma..tive.  I no longer feel I could snap my husbands head off at the neck simply because my pants are too tight.

*Watch now, he’ll come home with 14 pairs of maternity leggings.

It’s all in the plan.  Mwahahaha.

So, clearly, because it’s me.. I have been slightly obsessed with what I am going to wear while I grow and contort and bust out (let’s be honest, there is lots of busting out).   And, I am happy to report that there are actual clothes for pregs that aren’t horrific and totally expensive.  Top Shop, H&M, Old Navy, ASOS…  And, also happy to report that not everything is empire waist.  YAY!

Check this out:

These from H&M look cute too..  How cute and soft..

I went ahead and got this tee-shirt the other day.  Super soft and comfy and not offensively maternity frump:

Anyway, not SO SO bad.  Right?  Typically, I am not someone that likes to wear body-con stuff, but I am finding that now that I am pregnant, the tighter stuff looks better (gasp!).  I naively thought, a preggo could just wear larger sizes in some things and be ok and that is just not the case at all.  I mean, stuff hangs over your belly and you end up just looking sloppy, kinda like that fat guy at the County Fair eating a turkey leg.  You know the one, the guy that has no idea his stomach is hanging out the bottom of his shirt.

I am having so much fun with this and learning so much with every inch.  Can’t wait to apply all of this info to the work I do with my clients!  Life – ain’t it fun?!

Thanks for reading!

    So you’ll probably be one of the lucky ones who gets a cute belly while everything else stays skinny. The skinny jeans and body contour stuff will look great. More power to you and I’m totally jealous. But some of us eventually looked pregnant everywhere. Like, is my uterus in my butt? Or I’m having twins; one in each thigh! For us unfortunate souls, the best un-frump we can do is a maxi dress. Or maybe a two person camping tent with some cute leggings and flats. I tried to stay cute, but eventually the heat and the waddle won. Maybe I just needed your styling services. Next time I’m calling you so save these clothes you’re buying please. ❤
