I’m backtracking again! Please bear with me while I wrap up all my pregnancy-related posts (which seem like old news now). Honestly I haven’t missed the discomfort, limitations and all the bodily changes associated with being pregnant but I do miss the wonder of those kicks and movements that woke me up in the wee hours of the morning. I miss that anticipation and excitement of what is to be.
Mr M took me to the super amazing nel for my birthday in the very last leg of my pregnancy. As I was huge, swollen and not particularly feeling like myself, I haven’t been too enthused about fashion or putting my outfit together. I did purchase this Hansen and Gretel dress in one size up for the occasion but when I put it on that night, the dress just didn’t feel right. It felt a little too large for me (even in my big belly glory). The deep V collar opened right up to my belly button and the camisole that I had on (which was many sizes too small) kept hiking up right to my midriff. It was like a comedy that had gone wrong. Thankfully I had purchased a couple of nursing camisoles from Target and although the fabric wasn’t as luxurious, it saved my night! Speaking of nursing camisoles/bras, I’m swearing by my Target purchases but I’ll leave that for another time when I start transitioning to post-pregnancy topics.
Ever since the birth of mini M, I’ve regained much of my enthusiasm for fashion. There’s a lot of styles that are ‘impractical’ for nursing but at least I’ve semi-shrunk back to an acceptable size which allows me to fit into half of the things in my wardrobe. It’s no doubt going to be a challenge to balance practicality and personal desires but I’m sure I’ll find a way. I’m just not keen on being too strict with myself because that’s the last thing I need in a very sleep-deprived mode.
Signing off now! Hope you have a wonderful day.
