Thanks Amie! It's great that you're back here
. The scary admission is that I've always been here simply because I haven't got to my goal weight yet! First the PhD got in the way and now I'm up the duff so it doesn't look like I'll be getting down to 65kg any time soon! Ah well, they say if you want to find out about weight loss you should ask a failed dieter... we've read and tried EVERYTHING.
I told mum and dad about the baby while they were here over the weekend and after the initial shock wore off they were absolutely ecstatic. I went to Big W yesterday with my partner and my birthday money to get some bigger bras (yep, I'm only about 4 weeks and I'm already busting out of my current bras!) and some maternity clothes. Most of the 12DD bras were maternity bras and I don't need to start popping my boobs out on demand yet. And the maternity clothes were sooooo ugly! I just don't get it. With peasant tops and empire waists all the rage in their women's department the 'normal' clothes look like maternity clothes already. Why can't the maternity clothes look that decent?
I cheered myself up on eBay (yay, eBay!). There are squillions of decent maternity outfits there. And lots of bras in the size I need. That's why it pisses me off when bricks and mortar shops complain that online shopping is driving them to the wall. I was at a shop. I had money in my hand. I was DESPERATE to spend it on something. But all they had was rubbish. (Just thinking, I probably should try Target as well. Last I remember they had quite nice maternity wear.)
Oh, and you know how many pregnant women get sick of people giving them advice? THEY ARE NOT ME! I have no freaking idea of what maternity clothes I should buy. Should I get them in my current size, assuming it's only my belly that should grow, or a size up? I don't know if I should get underwire or non-underwire bras. If you have any tips I will LOVE to hear them!
My weight this morning was 72.5 kg. Obviously I'm not trying to lose weight now, but I'm guessing that the doctor is going to ask how much I weigh at some stage so I'm keeping track of it.
Hope you all have a great week!
