Permission to Expand

February 22, 2012

I’m officially busting at the seams. Seriously. Each time I try to wrestle the last remaining pair of my regular jeans over my expanding ass, the seams audibly groan and strain under the intensity and pressure. They’re practically begging to be put out of their misery and laid to rest, but up to this point I’ve turned away from them with a deaf ear and continued with the wrangling, wrestling and forcing of my larger self into theses faithful, yet completely abused jeans. True, the button needed to be popped open 2 seconds after it took me 5 minutes to get it closed due to my restricted ability to breath, and true my natural walking stride was severely compromised due to extreme jean tightness, as for sitting, well that wasn’t even an option. But the fact that I was in, meant I could go 1 more day denying the reality that I am now officially too big for every single item of clothing I have in my oversized closet. But alas, this IS the reality and for the first time since morning sickness, I feel legitimately pregnant. Its finally time for this ostrich to take her head out of the sands of denial and start embracing her larger self. So, by the power vested in me from a Dove chocolate wrapper, last night I gave myself the permission to commence shopping, for my new and very pregnant self.

Words of wisdom from a chocolate wrapper and the jeans I will now be laying to rest, with the hope of wearing again someday. The cardigan’s days appear to be numbered too. Just look at the strain on the face of those buttons.

    Commence shopping!! Fair play for leaving it so long.
    From Lesleys experience owning the maternity shop in Newbridge for a while, the best maternity jeans appear to be Crave. I’m sure they are State side. And I loved ‘Boob’ tops. Mamalicious tops tank tops are great for sleeping in. I’m sure you’ll get tons of advice but that’s all I have off the top of my head!
    Have fun. xxx
