So I think my goal is to be a hip mamma. Not like a "I'm my child's best friend" mom but a tattood pregnant lady who goes to concerts occassionally but still knows how to make pasta from scratch.
That's a nice idea. I guess everyone has an idea of who they are in their heads. It's kind of funny.
I went shopping yesterday because my fat jeans are getting a bit too snug. I'm not a thin woman by any means. I'm also not overly obese, but I'm definitely chunky. You know how we all worry about our muffin tops? Well, my muffin top has exploded over the past few weeks into a definite.... well, muffin top. Except I'm trying to embrace the fact that part of it is baby related. So I went to Motherhood Maternity & bought a decent number of clothes for a really good price. I got 2 sweaters, 5 tops & 2 pairs of pants. It's very hard to not feel like a fat lady in pregnant clothes, but I'm working on that. I'm 9 weeks and gosh should I be pooched out this much? The scale doesn't reflect anything but I'm guessing that my organs are all being moved around... it's very odd.
It's also very odd to not have a waist band for the pants. I'm used to pulling my pants up via my belt loops. The most important lesson I learned yesterday? When you're pregnant say goodbye to belt loops & zippers.
Caught myself in the mirror at work today and I think I did ok this morning with my clothing selection. As a modern short chunky woman showing my tummy will take some serious getting used to.
