What I'm Wearing: Big W maternity t-shirt ($9.95) & maternity jeans ($15), necklace from my fairy godmother, boots from my Nana.
So, I actually started today wearing a really pretty boho-style maxi dress. But a nameless person who lives in my uterus somewhat objected to that plan. Our little guy actually makes me nauseous if I wear anything that is too tight on my belly or underbust. If my clothing exerts any pressure at all on my baby belly then I start feeling sick, and I'm forced to change clothes. My theory is that our little dude is in there going, "Come on Mum, sexy cleavage-baring dresses are what got you into this mess in the first place! If you think you're going out dressed like that while I'm in here, you've got another thing coming!". At least he has no objections to my pink maternity jeans yet. YET.
I was looking through some pictures of me from about eight months ago earlier today, and was all like, "Hey, remember that time when I used to have a waist?". It seems like such a distant memory right now! The funny thing is, I've been feeling like my belly is really huge & awkward since about 12-14 weeks, and now I look back on those pictures going, "What were you complaining about, that thing is TINY!". In other news, no one above Kindy age has tried randomly touching my belly yet, so I'm starting to wonder if my chronic bitchface scares people away. Or, maybe at 25 weeks my belly isn't actually impressive enough to touch yet? Whatever the reason, I'm glad people are staying out of my personal space.
How has your week been? Anything exciting to report?
