I gave in. Finally. I had to. After all these months of resistance, I gave in and bought a pair (actually two!) of maternity jeans. Initially I thought of not wearing denim pants at all once the bump starts increasing. I thought I would simply rely on my linen pants, loose fitting dresses and stretchable skirts etc. But then, there were days when I really missed wearing a good pair of jeans. I used to look at the pile of my regular (now old) jeans, and sigh.. thinking when will I be able to wear them again! Since all my regular pants are no where close to my waist-line anymore! So I finally took a deep breath and brought two pairs – a skinny fit (my choice) and a boot cut fit (husband’s choice).
The only thing holding me back was that these pants won’t be of much use to me post-delivery, but then I ready of a lot of blogs, where women talked about wearing the maternity pants way after their deliveries (since obviously the belly doesn’t go back to ‘flat’ the next day of delivery). Well that made sense and so here it is!
P.S. Your girl is 21 weeks preggo here! The jeans and the loose blouse are hiding the bump quite nicely, I must say.
P.P.S. Every week it feels like I’m achieving a new milestone. To think of it, I keep getting closer to holding my babe in my arms. 🙂
