Giving In Never Felt So Good
Since the start of my pregnancy, I’ve been adamant about wanting to stay in my ‘normal’ clothes as long as humanly possible. I was going to do whatever it took to squeeze into my standard wardrobe.
And up to a few days short of my 16th week, I did just that. I wore the items in my closet. Now, you think that should have left me feeling great. But, instead, I was just miserable and uncomfortable a few more weeks than necessary.
Enter my knowledgeable coworker (who recently delivered twins too) to the rescue. After a lunch date where she was sharing her experiences with me, she sent me a link to her favorite maternity jeans from Old Navy.
I figured I could order a pair or two online and give them a try – especially since they came highly recommended as pants that look good and more importantly feel great. Here’s what I picked out:
When they arrived in the mail, I was pleasantly surprised to see that my coworker was absolutely right. These pants are very much like a standard jean while being oh-so-comfy. I’m in complete love with them and I’m a much happier person while wearing them instead of the recent tight, waist-cutting jeans from my closet.
The moral of the story here..is that I let my ideas of what maternity clothes would be like ..keep me from actually trying them. Little did I know, that it would turn out to be a good experience. Since then, I’ve put in a bit more shopping time and my body thanks me. J
