But I’m so. FAT!
My boobs have swollen to gargantuan proportions. They’d been doing this with the medication but now at the point that as soon as I get in the house I want to whip off the bra. But then I have these melons blobbing around pendulously and that’s not good either! I think I need to get some new bras. I’ve already moved to ones without underwire ages ago. I know it’s not cool but nor is feeling uncomfortable in the boob area. At least mine are from uniqlo so don’t look that bad! Although they currently do as they seem to be a size too small!
I wore my skinny jeans last week and they’re getting really too skinny for me. Way too tight around the waist. At what point do people start changing clothes? I can’t tell if this is just me being fat or some sort of pregnancy thing. Obviously I don’t want to go and buy proper maternity clothes but I now feel like my normal clothes aren’t really suiting me. Eg All the tops seem indecently booby. And my bum seems too big and I don’t like the way my belly is hanging over my trousers. I have been wearing slouchy “pregnancy pants” round the house.
So my questions to those of you who have been pregnant or are pregnant are:
- When did you start wearing different clothes?
- What items of clothes were good for the first trimester? (I really feel like I need to buy some other clothes as most of them are getting uncomfortable.)
- Especially if you’re in the UK, what shops were good for things to wear?
I’m usually a quite basic H&M person. I’ve had a quick look around maternity clothes and they all seem horrific… The best I could see were on Envie de Fraises or ASOS.
But it seems really early to be doing anything at 5 weeks. I mean I should probably not be so fat by now? When I’m looking around it seems people don’t do anything till week 8 or something. It’s just making me feel quite uncomfortable. I work in a quite formal office so can’t just wear slouchy pants and sweatshirts with pizza on, sadly. (The one in the picture is the one I’m in love with but can’t seem to get in the UK… Boooooo.)
In other news, we went to the local pub for Sunday lunch. It was the first time with a friend who I usually try to tempt to drink alcohol so I think she was a bit surprised when I ordered a pint of OJ and lemonade instead. Cheaper than my usual bottle of rosé! This pregnancy thing is economical! Dog and I make a great team where roasts are concerned. He eats the beef and I eat the Yorkshire pudding and vegetables. (I am rather fussy about meat and he likes it more.) See picture below… It was a giant. Almost as big as Doglet. Maybe this is why I’m getting fat?!
Anyway… Back to the clothing question. Tell me about your maternity style in the first trimester! I don’t want to tempt fate by getting a load of stuff before we’ve made it to 12 weeks. But I’m feeling like a heffalump and I need some clothing advice.
