[Pics coming soon, I promise!]
My fat pants don’t fit any more. Haha. The bella band still works but my skinny jeans are getting tight in the thighs and butt. Maybe since wide leg pants are back in, I should leave my skinnies behind and go for some of my old wide leg jeans that I’ve been holding on to waiting for them to come back in fashion. The only thing is that I hate wearing wide leg or bootcut pants without a great heel and I’m not really into heels at the moment. This pregnancy thing (or let’s be honest – the additional 15 pounds) is slowing me down enough as it is. I don’t need to add heels to the situation, too!
I am also finding that I don’t like anything pressing on my lower abdomen so one pair of my maternity pants — the one with the thin band that sits low — is sort of out for now. That leaves me with one pair of jeans and two pairs of leggings that I’m comfortable in. I was going to go shopping this weekend but I wanted to take it easy (I mean, I got lazy), but new clothes are definitely in order. Soon spring will actually be here and I can wear dresses and not sorry about being so darn cold!
Part of the reason I wanted to take it easy this weekend was because Sunday and Monday I had been feeling a cramping/soreness in my pelvic area. It sort of feels like cramps but not AF cramps. It kinda feels like I did a bunch of sit ups but only with the very lower part of my belly. I don’t even think you can actually do work on your stomach muscles that low, but I’m hoping it helps give you an idea of what I’m talking about. Woohoo! Let the round ligament pain begin! These babies need to stretch things out! Babies need room!
In the meantime, I’m breathing and smiling and enjoying every single moment of this pregnancy. 🙂
