Since I thought we were done after Finn was born, I got rid of ALL my maternity clothes, and over the 3 years since he was born, I've been getting rid of all the baby stuff as he outgrows it. So in a way, we are truly starting over here.
So I still don't know if I'm ready for maternity clothes yet, but I'm getting there. I know with my last 3 pregnancies, I was in maternity clothes by 9 - 10 weeks, but one of those was a twin pregnancy, and I started out a little heavier with each of those than I am now (after Finn was born, I finally lost all my baby weight and got down to what I weighed when Michael and I got married 10 years ago). Plus, I think just having maternity clothes on hand made it easy to transition over to them, know what I mean?
Anyway, my clothes are getting snug on me, but I can probably hold out for another couple of weeks, but I went and bought some maternity stuff yesterday - just a couple pairs of jeans and a few tops - and yowza!! It kind of cracks me up how I actually look more pregnant in maternity clothes at this point than in regular clothes. I remember when maternity clothes used to be designed to hide pregnancy - now they seem to be designed to accentuate and emphasize pregnancy! It's kind of funny. So I have this stuff, but now I'm more ambivalent than ever about actually wearing them yet - it seems ridiculous to look so pregnant - and flaunt it! - this early on.
Not sure what my point is here.
