Oh Happy Day!
It's like I've been in the desert for 40 years and finally the heavens have opened up and manna is pouring out on me... in the form of MATERNITY PANTS!
Yeah, that's right, I joined the club. Stretchy pants all the way, baby!
I was lucky enough to hear about Forever 21's new maternity line last week, and immediately placed an order for 2 pairs of their jeans at 13 bucks a pop. Can't beat that! I wasn't at all convinced they would fit me or be cute, but thought it was worth a shot.
Well, they arrived last night and I swear a stream of light poured through my window and angels started singing when I pulled them on.. pure bliss.
Hubs thought I was a little nuts as I pranced around the house, pointing out over and over to him how great they looked, checking myself out in every mirror, twisting this way and that to get the best view. Of myself.
But I just couldn't help it, I have not been so happy since.. well, since Saturday, I guess, when I FELT MY CHILD MOVE!
Yes, more great news- my mini me is a wild one and dancing and kicking all around in my tummy! It was the coolest, most weird thing I've ever felt in my life. Even better? I actually saw her kick my tummy out a few times! I couldn't believe it at first, but there was no denying that my belly visibly moved up a few times in the same spot as I felt her kick.
Does it get any better than that??
I thought it was way too soon to hope to see anything on the outside, but I was so excited. So now my new hobby is laying very still and staring intently at my stomach while I bribe my unborn child to move with promises of vacations at the beach and shopping sprees in Chicago. I highly recommend this method.
I hope you all are having as great of a day as me!! And if not, *go get yourself some stretchy pants. I guarantee you won't regret it.
*Unless, of course, you are Ali from The Bachelorette, in which case you and the ABC stylist need to put down the leggings/jeggins/skinny jeans STAT. Sister, those things are doing you no favors, no favors at all.
