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.
