The next size

Sigh, my belly is so huge that I was running into issues where nothing would cover the darn thing. So, I finally admitted that I needed to buy the next larger size of clothes. I hate that I had to since I only have 9 weeks left but, the sad news is that I did. However, me being the frugal person that I am, I didn't want to pay full price for them. If I'm buying all new clothes, they will be skinny clothes, not big fat pregnant lady clothes. But, I simply couldn't get away with wearing sweats and oversize t-shirts either. So I turned to our local online classifieds and started searching. I found a killer of a deal. I was able to find someone selling all their maternity clothes in the size I needed and they were selling the pants for $5.00 each and shirts for $3.00 each. I picked up 10 shirts, 6 pairs of pants, a skirt, a jacket and a pair of pj's for $70.00. I was very happy, I basically got an entire wardrobe for less than the price of three pairs of pants at Motherhood. So, even though I am very sad that I had to go to that size I am finally comfortable again and that is worth every penny. Oh, my older sister was in hard labor tonight. I hope I have good news tomorrow and I will know if I have a new niece or nephew.

I think you did well. And you ARE pregnant, babe. It's natural. I'm sure you look terrific, no matter what.

I'm glad you found some clothes that fit and didn't cost you an arm and a leg.

I agree with hoosiergirl, you're pregnant and it won't last forever.

hoosiergirl- true, it's just depressing to keep seeing myself get bigger, and bigger, and bigger.

ftj- I hope not! I hope my figure will come back after this baby, I hope I'm not too stretched out!

bigsister- I would love to show them off, I got some great stuff

lsl-yes I do, I just couldn't justify new with such a short time left.

GOOD FOR YOU! Good bargain. In my 3rd pregnancy I grew out of clothes at 6 months that I wore to the 10th month the previous two pregnancies.

Your figure will come back, don't worry. Use wisdom and "In God We Trust."
