Maternity Pants, Muffin Tops, and Muumuus

So I was going through maternity clothes last week in order to lend them to Cassandra. I have to admit, I sat there and thought to myself, "Would it be okay if I just wore these maternity pants? They're cute, and nobody would know if I wore them with a long shirt. They sure would be more comfortable than my regular pants with buttons and all of that fuss that constantly reminds me I need to shed a few pounds." And then I realized I was seriously considering this. Not that I thought about it and immediately laughed it off. I was seriously considering this!! And my "baby" is 18 months old. Yikes!! So where it gets really funny... I was talking to my dear friend Becky (one of my other BFFs, and I'll tell you all about her and her placenta one day) the other day, and we were both saying how we had eaten too much Halloween candy. Then she mentioned that she had come across some of her maternity pants and seriously contemplated just wearing them again. Mind you, her "baby" is 16 months old. So we got a good laugh as we compared our on-the-verge-of-wearing-maternity-pants stories. So then we got to talking about just wearing sweats, but even then, some are tight and still you are faced with the muffin top issue. Somedays I totally understand the whole muumuu thing.

And this picture reminds me... If you haven't ever perused the aisles of Walmart on this website, you must! It's terrible, but it's hilarious!

  2. Hi,

    You have a nice blog. A 40-week pregnancy is really just a blip in our whole life time, but the problem with clothing during that time is very painful. Keeping this in mind, two best friends and mother of two children each started http://www.bellybundles.com. We have high quality maternity clothes there and we would like to hear your feedback on our products.

    Thanks,
