It's about that time...

I put on my first official maternity gear today. My jeans. I was using the rubber band trick for the button on my regular jeans for as long as I possibly could, until it just became too uncomfortable. I couldn't do it anymore. When I sat down I had to unzip my jeans the whole way and push them down under my belly. It got to be a little ridiculous that every time I got back up from sitting down I was seen zipping my pants back up. Yes, I did this even at restaurants and other public places. I'm sure people were wondering what my problem was. So I bit the bullet and pulled out the trusty maternity jeans. And wow. I am so much more comfortable. They fit perfectly, which honestly is a little scary this early on. What are they going to fit like in 3 more months if they fit perfectly now!? And how much do I LOVE that I can just pull them up & down like sweat pants every time I use the bathroom, which I must say, is pretty frequent these days. So here is my first official "belly shot" on my first official day of wearing maternity clothes. Good times, good times.

Oh that is so sweet! There is just something magical about the baby pooch on a woman.

Glad you are more comfortable and praying that you stay that way.

Finally...I can see the bump! :) You are still teeny tiny though. I can't wait to watch that belly grow. See ya next week...hopefully that belly will be a little bigger. :)

You look great!! Enjoy those stretchy pants for as long as you can, girl.

I thought of you yesterday when I parked in expectant mothers' parking again... Take advantage of that, too! :)

I think there is NOTHING more beautiful than a belly protruding with baby! NOTHING - well except the actual baby when he/she's born! Love pregnant women! God's wonderful "creation art" for a mama!
