Thursday and Friday

Picture 001Picture 002Thursday I started the day okay but by mid-day I was super duper sick. So sick my director commanded me to head home and heal up. I left around 1:30pm. Friday I could hardly get out of bed to email my team that I was calling out. My whole body ached, I had the sniffles, sneezes, coughs, wheezes and whines. And not really and meds available for me to take. I drank lots of orange juice, water, tea and vegetable broth and slept a ton; by evening I felt around 80% back to normal.

Anyway, back to Thursday's attire. I only have two bras that currently fit and both were dirty so I had to figure out a top that wouldn't show my pregnancy quad-boob. On top of that, I am fitting comfortably into my leftover size 14 trousers but I really don't have many left. My Essential jeans from The Gap still fit, but having anything that heavy of fabric pressed against my stomach right now makes me feel a bit nauseous. I am not maternity clothes size, but I am definitely a different shape and can't deal with anything rubbing against my stomach. So expect to see these two pairs of black pants quite a lot the next several weeks! 🙂

    Congratulations on the upcoming bambino. I too am pregnant (7 mths along) and have had a terrible time finding pants/bottoms that fit me. My new best friend is the Bella Band. I actually got mine from Motherhood and could not live without it. It not only helps me stay in my regular bottoms, but it also helps keep up those maternity bottoms that don’t quite fit very well.

    Hey there — I second the Old Navy maternity collection — they had great jeans when I was pregnant and tops. Not expensive either. I think I was able to get an entire maternity wardrobe for around $300 (got a lot too because so much was on sale). And those bella bands — they were amazing too! I was able to wear my regular jeans for much longer and after pregnancy. Check those out too!

    Sorry that you’re not well – there’s something going around in Ottawa, maybe it’s a national capital flu! 😉

    I’d highly recommend getting a belly/bella band to make your non-maternity clothes last as long as possible. You’ll be able to wear your pants unbuttoned and be comfy as well!

    So sorry to hear you’re not feeling well. My allergies (mildly seasonal) were exacerbated by pregnancy. Stay out of maternity clothes as long as you can. Once you go into them, it’s impossible to go back and you’ll likely need some larger sizes for your immediately post preg body anyway. Still so excited for you and your little fig newton.

    Last pregnancy, I had good luck at Old Navy Maternity for jeans. This pregnancy, I found The Gap Maternity has some beautiful and comfortable clothes. Good luck! 🙂
