Once you join the Mommy to-be club, all of the already Mommies (and fellow Mommies to-be) become SO generous and lovely.
Exhibit A: Due to my torso impairment (hello: boobays, belly button, and hips – practically overlapping), this belly has made its appearance quite early. I was yearning for elastic waistbands by week 10. Not because I really needed them yet, but because I knew I would be more comfortable. By week 11, I had been graciously given a pair of jeans, black pants, and 4 tops – all maternity from a fellow preggers, Christine. Her cousin was really to purge these items and they weren’t a great fit for her. Score! I’ve been wearing the pants ever since. THANKS CHRISTINE!
Exhibit B: Next up, another fellow preggers, Cathy, was given an entire wardrobe of maternity clothes to borrow. More clothes than my regular closet can offer. Crazy! She had me try on some items that didn’t fit her well and I came home with 2 pairs of jeans and 1 pair of pants to borrow. They’re a little big for now, but I’m prett-y confident that I will work my way into them! [Note to self: Keep it together and don’t ruin them! I say this as I simultaneously spill a smoothie allll over myself. Ugh, this will be a challenge.] THANKS CATHY!
Exhibit C (the official MOTHERload!): One of my closest and dearest friends, Kristen, sent me a box of love from New York this past week and IT WAS A BLESSING! The box was filled to the brim with everything maternity…from 13 weeks through 40 – I am pretty well set. Check out this 50 or so item MOTHERload!!!
I can now breathe easier. THANK YOU, KRIS – LOVE YOU!!! ♥
I’m looking forward to receiving the 5 tops that I ordered from Old Navy last week. It’s time to relax in comfort until special occasions warrant some new pieces. Yay!
Here’s me on Sullivan’s Island on February 2nd when it was 80 degrees (in Kristen’s clothes)!
AND the handsome hubs (in his clothes, ha)!
Next on the need-it-now wardrobe list? New bras (which I should’ve gotten, like, YESTERDAY). Girlfriends are suffocating.
Happy Sunday – GOGIANTS!!!
p.s. Kris – is it gonna be weird to see me wearing your clothes for the next 6 months? Haha.
