I've reached the breaking point.
I haven't been able to fully zip, fasten, or button my pants and skirts for weeks now, but it's come to the point that some of my attire is refusing to budge at all. I try to reason with my skirts, "Come on now! Just a little zip? Please?" The baby doesn't live in my hip! But apparently the poundage that comes along with this little person likes to nestle in unnecessary places.
Now, I've never been a big shopper. I'll go on sprees every once in a while if I have a big wad of unclaimed cash lying around. However, I've never really been one to enjoy the chase. My fashionable sister-in-law is a total pro when it comes to putting in the time and digging deep to find the real treasures. The haute couture. I would rather just walk into the first store that pops into my mind (usually Express) and grab the stuff they want me to buy - you know, the raiment that they put on the mannequins in the windows. Sometimes I'll even peruse the sale rack for about 13 seconds before giving up.
So here's my point. I have held out for a while on going shopping for maternity clothes. Every time I walk by Motherhood, I want to gag. Mostly because gagging is a favorite pastime these days. But also because at first glance, that store just depresses me with its fuddy duddy knits and its apparent tribute to the mom jean. So I need your help. Where did you chicas find the best maternity vesture? (I used a thesaurus for that one. It means clothes.)
P.S. Sorry to you friends who have not yet had the pleasure of giving up your body as you know it to science. Or nature. Or whatever you call this. I guess you guys are out of the running on this one. Or maybe you should just give me advice on shoes!
