I often look myself in the mirror and say, “I can’t believe you’re having a kid. You’re still a kid.” Alas, we are all children when we have children. It seems that is just how God designed it to be.
When I was a kid, I really liked to dress up and… imagine that… I still like to dress up! I guess because I never grew up, haha. I’ve been finding new ways to wear outfits with this third trimester belly. Amazingly enough, there are only four more weeks left until Baby Girl’s due date. I wouldn’t be surprised if she delays her debut, so it actually could be seven more weeks till we get to meet her. Ah, C’est la vie.
In any case, it seems it’s a gradual change of season from warmer to cooler, and I am still getting by with a few non-maternity sweater tops from last year’s wardrobe and some of my favorite maternity staples.
Exhibit A: Pumpkin Belly ~ It really does look like I just stuffed a pumpkin up there for trick-or-treating!
Exhibit B: Bright Blue Belly ~ I actually wore this very shirt the day I met Ian for the first time at the airport in 2010 – he loves seeing me wear it with my preggo belly.
Exhibit C: Cozy Sweater ~ This was a great find at Goodwill as it will wrap almost all the way around and is a fair light weight layering piece.
Exhibit D: Leggings & Band ~ These maternity bottoms are a staple in my wardrobe; I just love wearing them as they’re the only pants that don’t ride down. The belly band is a great addition to outfits now that it’s difficult to keep the belly underside covered.
Exhibit E: Oversized Tops ~ At this stage of the pregnancy, it’s easy to just slide a stretchy skirt over the bump and tuck in a blousy top, or to find long & large shirts at the thrift store.
