The Struggle to Dress Myself and a Beach Ball

November 12, 2012

These pictures are from early in the third trimester and . . . I am a little envious of myself from when I could more easily wear normal clothing.

Like that black shirt in the middle? It has gone to greener pastures (by which I mean the back pile in my drawer).

I basically am just living in that blue skirt now, rotating out the shirts I wear with it.

This baby has dropped really far down (enough so that strangers keep guessing it’s a boy and then looking at me dubiously when I tell them it’s a girl. I refrain from saying, “TWO ULTRASOUNDS SAY YOU’RE WRONG!”) so pretty much if a shirt isn’t long enough that it would have reached my knees pre-pregnancy, it’s too short now.

I’ve all but made a paper chain to count down until I can wear some regular clothing again. I just want to wear a $5 shirt for Target – is that so much to ask?

Left to Right:
Shirt: Shade, Skirt: Target, Sandals: American Eagle
Dress: Old Navy, Leggings: Target, Shoes: Fossil
Shirt: Target, Pants: Target, Shoes: Fossil
Shirt: Borrowed from Landen, Jeans: Old Navy Maternity, Shoes: Target
Sweater: from Ralphie, Tank: Old Navy, Jeans: Old Navy Maternity, Shoes: Target

    I love it when people insist they know the sex of your baby just by looking at you. Newflash: no you don't. (Although all of those people who told me I was having a girl and that's why I was throwing up until 20 weeks were right. But I have a sneaking suspicion I might have thrown up with a boy too. Maybe.)

    You are so close! Time has just flown by, haha, for me at least. I know you have a different perspective. I'm excited for you.

    Luckily you still look really cute, even if you are wearing a beach ball.

    My brother in law's mother in law (confusing?) has this thing where she loves to predict the sex of the baby. And she will argue with you even when ultrasounds have been done. She swore up and down that my niece was going to be a boy. Well, Grace is 8 months old now and still a girl. She is now doing it with another daughter of hers. It drives me NUTS when people think they know even when something like an ultrasound says otherwise.

    Ummm….you were the cutest tiniest pregnant person ever. I seriously can't even tell you're pregnant in that photo with the black top! I was pregnant ALL over. No exaggeration. Haha! You are adorable.
