I’m just not in control of my body these days. I’m buffeted along by the whims of my sweet little baby boy. I’m thinking about things black and white, so this dress is perfect for my mood. There is opposition in all things. I hate Mondays and love Fridays.
I know a few women who love to be pregnant. They truly are the earth mothers in this world. And then there’s all the rest of us. I’m grateful that I will finally be a mom, but growing one is almost exactly the opposite.
I woke up thinking it was Friday and it’s only Tuesday. That little trick of my mind was so not funny. I must be trying to push the days along to get to the business of motherhood.
But time really has flown. Here I am, already in my second trimester and yet, today, it feels like it’s never going to end. I try to avoid telling an expectant mom she glows. I now understand the unamused tight smile when she says, “It’s because I’m hot”! Now I know how she feels. Or saying you are “so cute” while thinking, “she’s finally chubby”. I want to glow, I want to be cute but I don’t like being hot and I don’t like being chubby. Get back to me after the baby comes and then see how cute I am.
I don’t have to hate being pregnant and I don’t have to love it either. I can say I’m happy I’m having a baby, but I can also feel, I can’t wait to be un-pregnant!!
So, it’s ok to be a little black and white these days and I’m wearing this dress to prove it!
It was a chilly Sunday when I wore this outfit. I wanted to wear tights with my dress, but the only “tights” I had were these maternity leggings from Target. They aren’t hosiery, so I paired them with boots. Looking at this outfit, I don’t necessarily think these boots might have been the best fashion choice.
