Today I bought two pairs of super-cute pants at, A Pea in the Pod. I love this store. Everything is soooo stylish, the quality is incredible and (most importantly) they carry my size. Plus, sales the associates always send customers home with a little goody bag. Today they hooked me up a picture frame, some sort of miracle stretch mark potion, a box of tealight candles and about 10 chocolate truffles. I'm sure I'll be shopping there a lot over the next several months.
Anyway, even though it is a somewhat difficult transition (from a psychological standpoint, since I am only 3 months along) I am going to start wearing some of my new clothes tomorrow. I realized today that maternity pants in my actual size are a lot more flattering and a lot more comfortable than regular pants that are one or two sizes two big. I've been resisting, in part because (as I mentioned the other day) I keep reading about other women who don't even attempt to wear maternity pants until month five. Well, forget that! I said early on that I wanted to embrace the physical changes rather than bemoan them -- so that is what I'm going to do.
