So. I’ve been meaning to write. But I’m monstrously pregnant and I just haven’t. I’m sure you can forgive me. 😉
This post serves only the purpose to tell you I’m still alive, still pregnant, and my maternity fashion advice for twin preggos lol. I’ll post a real update Monday after our 34 week u/s.
My feet are now swelling and it’s awful.
My maternity clothes hardly fit. Strangely enough though my two fav outfits consist of non maternity maxi skirts, a non maternity tank, and a Target maternity tank. My mom helped me clearance shop at Target for at least a few more tops because technically I still have another month if we make it to 38 weeks. Which, at this point I feel like might just happen. So I went up
a few 2-3 sizes and got an XXL v neck stretchy non maternity t, a XL maternity top -also stretchy material, and a maternity dress. Really? If you are newly pregnant with twins, don’t waste all your money on cute normal sized maternity clothes. Purchase enough for the first, and maybe the second trimester. After that, you need a few sizes larger for the third. Oh, actually my cute maternity skinny jeans haven’t fit since halfway through the second tri. Maybe even the beginning, but i squeezed into them. Beauty is pain, right? Well, that applies to pregnancy too I guess. Thankfully my good friend Jess gave me some of her old maternity jeans and shorts. The Old Navy ones seem to be awesome for later pregnancy. I cant stand the belly band anymore because it doesn’t really fit my belly. These jeans are below the belly though and I like that.
I highly recommend Target stretchy t’s and tanks, along with the stretchy material Liz Lange Target maternity, (and Old Navy jeans and shorts). Cotton will only last you so long. My only under tank that fits well is from Target and its a medium too. Yet large Motherhood Maternity ones are hardly long enough. Actually, at this point, none of my Motherhood Maternity clothes fit.
I’m too vain I guess because I refuse to give in to the man’s t and leggings outfit. Lol. I blame it on the adorable pregnant people I see still fitting into their clothes at 33+ weeks. I want to look good too! 😦
I’m not on weekly ob visits yet which is driving me crazy with this swelling. But I have no other weird symptoms so I know I’m fine. Just fat feet, and hands, and my face is on its way. Ah! Oh, and I feel like instead of being in a bubble, I’m in a constant oven. But this is normal pregnant.
Oh, and if you were thinking I have no right to complain…I was measuring 38 weeks two weeks ago!!!! So I’m sure I measure full term right now, maybe more. I can hardly waddle comfortably anymore. If you haven’t been pregnant more than 40 weeks before (obviously this doesn’t include twin+ moms) , just shhh. This hasn’t been an easy ride for me. I’m actually still on the Zofran.
