I finally broke down and bought some maternity pants this weekend. I don't know why I was dreading doing that so much.
I guess I hate the thought of wasting money on some temporary pants. I mean I still wear jeans that I bought back in 2004! That's 6 years ago! And I wear ( or I guess at this point wore because they don't fit right now) those jeans all the time. When I buy a pair of pants, I keep them a while, and wear them until they are thread barren. And even usually after that. It's strange how I'm so frugal with some things, but not with others...
So I set out to buy maternity pants, and had the problem I figured I'd have. Too short. They were all too short. Curse this height of mine. Apparently they don't think tall people get pregnant too? I was hoping to avoid maternity stores due to their high pricing, but after Target, Kohl’s and Wal-Mart let me down I had no choice.
Ashley and I ventured to the mall, and into Motherhood Maternity I went. They had a select few styles in "tall" and I snatched them up. I ended up buying a couple pairs and spent more than I'd have liked to. But now that I'm wearing a pair, it was totally worth it!
I haven't been this comfortable in a long long long time. Who knew a stretch waist could feel so good? I feel like I'm sitting at my desk in my PJ's! I'm thinking after wearing pants like this for the next few months, I'm not going to want to go back to the regular kind! I wonder how long you can get away with wearing maternity pants after you are pregnant…
Waiting for James to arrive!
