My wardrobe is in sad shape. And by sad shape I mean SAD SHAPE. It’s about 2 years over due for an overhaul, and the future is not looking bright for it. I have practically nothing that doesn’t look and feel like it’s falling apart, and non of it matches or is the style I like now.
I had talked to husband about doing a serious revamp once I got a job, and he thought it was a great idea. Unfortunately the job didn’t happen until I was already preggo, so there really is little sense in buying new clothes now.
And so my wardrobe sits. Horribly warn and full of holes. I removed all of the unwanted clothing from my closet because I just didn’t want to see it anymore, (I chose not to throw it out just yet, since I will have an awkward phase after baby and before I will be able to wear my favorites again.) but it practically left me with nothing.
Instead of actually buying the clothes, I’ve been Pinning a board with the style and cuts I want. This way I will be able to find the things that I like, but won’t be spending money on things I won’t be able to wear anyway!
I especially like this one:
And I can’t wait to add some sweater dresses. Like this:
I have seriously been considering buying the shoes I want before I am done. I figure those don’t change sizes like the rest of me is. What do you think?
Sorry for the extended periods of silence over here. I am coming to the end of my pregnancy, and it’s really taking it’s toll on anything that doesn’t involve sleeping, peeing, and eating. 😉
I feel like I have had a pretty easy time of it (being pregnant that is). I have been tired, hungry, etc., but nothing to severe like some women I have been around. I was able to work out at the gym, sometimes to the angst of my beloved husband (weighted squats are good for you!!!) I was tired my first trimester when I was working crazy amounts of hours, but once the second job ended I was pretty well set! I haven’t had any weird food cravings, and my energy has been reduced for sure, but still there.
But I’m starting to feel it now. Baby is quite rambunctious. He has always kicked at what ever happens to touch my stomach. Boxes, arms, seat belts, and he kicks the bed until he is tired at night. It wasn’t so bad when he was only 1 1/2 lbs. I could even sleep through it! Now he will brace his feet against my ribs and “jump” off the bed, which results in hilarious alien like contortions of my stomach (and hysterical laughter from the two of us), difficulty sleeping, and very tender spots on my abdomen. I have been having braxton hicks, and “false labor” daily, and working on my feet is only making it worse. I started fighting restless legs a couple months ago, but was able to keep it mostly under control until the past couple weeks. It’s enough to drive a person insane! And even if I can sleep through it, my legs are sore and tender the next day from the weird muscle contortions. And last but not least, the insanely small amount of room I have in my stomach make eating meals practically impossible, and normally followed by hours of heart burn.
I am very grateful that the first part of my pregnancy was easy. And I know this is a short lived phase, though still quite unpleasant. And I’m sure the discomfort will all fade when I get to see his little face!
