This week marked the first time I received a ‘negative’ comment regarding my prego appearance. While out trick-or-treating, I was greeted by a neighbor who said, “So its not just extra clothes you’ve been wearing. You are pregnant!” Followed by, “WOW! You were never this huge with your other 2! It has to be a girl!”
I mean, let’s face it (or I’ll face it)… I know the number on the scale is quite high (for me) at this point in my pregnancy but can’t everyone just stick to the rule: “If you don’t have anything nice to say, don’t say anything at all.” ? ESPECIALLY during pregnancy? Most women, no matter what their size during pregnancy, feel huge so there’s really no need to point out the hugeness, right? I handled myself well and gave her a great big smile and said,
As far as my ‘maternity fashion’ goes, I’ve really been enjoying scarves this fall and have found so many great ones at TJMaxx and Target! In my opinion, it adds so much to a simple outfit and it keeps me nice and warm on all the chilly days we’ve been having! And since my body temperature runs hot, you’re most likely to see me out and about without a coat (Try explaining that to your kids! “You need to wear a coat; mommy doesn’t.“)
In Baby News: Little One is doing great! Kicking and punching and twisting; I love all of the movement! My ‘What to Expect’ book reads: “This week marks the beginning of some serious weight gain as your baby’s weight in the next 4 weeks alone will double.” GROW BABY GROW!
I officially have lost site of my ‘belt area’ when I look down and my belly is big enough to catch food too ; ) Flat Riding Boots have been my go-to shoe since the weather has gotten colder here in Pittsburgh and I’m enjoying necklaces more than any other jewelry right now!
