Resistance is Futile

Last Saturday I wore regular jeans for perhaps the last time ever.

You see I have been resistant to buying speciality clothes (maternity clothes) because after all there are so many nice clothes that can work for both and really I only have 4 1/2 months to go and it seemed like a waste of money and I'm cheap. So I have been wearing empire waist dresses and long shirts with leggings. A friend even gave me a few items and I did buy one pair of maternity pants; however, they only have a stretchy part in the front and it is rather small now that I look at them. I was thinking I could make due but things changed on this past Saturday.

Saturday we had some friends from out of town and we (my husband and I) decided to give them a tour of the downtown which was a lot of fun. I decided to try and be normal and wear my regular jeans for this little outing. This was of course a big mistake. My husband warned me that this was a bad idea but I really really really wanted to wear jeans; comfy. normal jeans. Despite my fun day there was nothing comfy or normal about my belly busting out of my jeans all day long. After dinner I could barely breath and it took all my pride and self restrain not to rip them off and drive home naked.

So I broke and the next day I went to a maternity store that a friend had recommended. I grabbed a few jeans off the rake and took them into the change room and that's when I fell in love. These jeans were and are amazing and actually make me look and feel normal; pregnant yes but normal. I can bend over and sit down with out my bum hanging out. They make me feel free and I truly don't know if I can ever go back to regular none elastic waist jeans again.


  1. Yes Jane, I remember those days. Comfy is the only way to go!
    Love you lots

  2. Haaa I agree with Mama Harper - gotta go comfy. Even Joey on Friends wore Phoebe's maternity pants for Thanksgiving one year. He thought the elastic panel in the front was genius. Elastic pants, there's no turning back now Jane... I'm still wearin mine!

  3. hahahaha! can i try them on when i (hopefully) see you in toronto?


  4. Yes you can Marki! I say elastic waist for all!
