As I mentioned, my bump is getting harder and harder to hide. My work wardrobe is getting smaller and smaller and although I have a lot of great flowy tops, I’ve been hating wearing pants. The bella band gets too uncomfortable as the day goes on (too much pressure!) and the hair band doesn’t really work for most of my pants.
So I did it. At 10w1d, I shopped for maternity pants. And I felt like an imposter. And for a tiny minute, fear popped into my head. Am I going to jinx this? Maybe I should wait until I hit the second trimester? And then I took a deep breath and realized that it’s better that I feel comfortable and not stress about clothes every morning. I bought two pairs of skinny jeans and some maternity leggings. And can I just say, OMG these three pairs of pants are the most comfortable pants ever! I’m so glad I bought them. I’m sure I’ll wear them out in no time. Now I can wear my cute tops! And I’ll be comfortable!
