So we went to Target. Which failed miserably. First of all, the maternity section is TINY. And it's mixed in with the plus-size dept. Which gets confusing. The clothes did not fit well and made me look fat. Not pregnant.
Next stop: Motherhood Maternity. This is a store I swore I'd never enter pre-pregnancy. The mannequins in the window always looked frumpy and miserable. But I'm desperate, people. So in I went. Not only were the sales people SUPER helpful, they have some great stuff.
I found the best maternity shirt ever! It looks like something I'd get out of the Victoria's Secret Pink collection and it's my favorite color (pink). Plus it's really soft. I also got the best pair of jeans. All the other pairs I've tried on have been way too big, but these have the secret fit belly and they're actually really cute jeans.
So, my question is: why in the world do we not wear maternity jeans all of our lives???
A picture of my "Mom in Training" shirt. For my "real-life" friends, you might be seeing this one a lot. It's definitely a favorite! Oh, and this view reminds me... I'll post a picture of my belly button soon for those daring enough to look at it. It's always been a deep innie, but it's already kinda flat now and getting dark in color. Very creepy! (Don't worry, I took my belly ring out).
Side view of the growing bump. I absolutely love it!!! It makes me feel so much cuter and more special. And I can't tell when I've eaten too much food, because my belly is always poochy. But now it's firm, which is super. Plus, it balances out my "junk in the trunk". And I get to wear stretchy, comfortable clothing.
Here's a sexy rear view of what the maternity jean has to offer. Oh, and I forgot to mention how awesome it is when you go to the restroom and all you have to do is pull them down and then pull them back up. No buttons, no zippers. So simple. I'm never going back...
