Nothing Fits!

Okay, now I am not complaining about this.

I am just kind of wondering why in the world, at only eight weeks pregnant, my clothes do not fit?!?!

For the record, I have not gained weight. I have actually lost four pounds in the past two weeks, not that I am trying to lose weight, but morning sickness makes keeping food down really difficult.

It's actually not just my waist that is the problem, either. My breasts have started really filling out these past few days. I cannot button my fitted jackets any more. Unfortunately, I don't think that fitted jackets look that great or professional when they are unbuttoned. About half of my business suits have fitted jackets. The half that have the looser, longer cut jackets? Well, those tend to be higher waisted in the pants - so they don't fit either.

I have a wonderful girlfriend who was pregnant last year. She knew what to do and got me two pregnancy bands.

I almost feel like a fraud, wearing my first true article of "maternity" clothing. Not that you can tell, it is hidden well under a sweater and buttoned jacket. But I know it's there. It's like I keep waiting for someone to walk up to me, tap me on the shoulder, and say, "You know, it's way too early to be wearing maternity clothes."

I agree. So tell that to my pants and jackets!

Grats on your new pants!

I think that's what she got me - but it was from a maternity store, so they are called pregnancy bands. Just like Bella, I think?

Tracy said...

Jo says she's not fitting into her clothes either and has had to resort to a bella band...not totally unheard of!

I'm happy...frankly. :)

Well atleast you know the little one is growing. Frankly I am happy your clothes don't fit, cause it has been a long road for you. I hope you find some clothes to fit.

Melissa said...

Well, quite frankly, congratulations to you on your ill fitting wardrobe. I hope it only gets worse. ;)

Laura said...

Maria said...

Yay, your first step into maternity clothes!

Dov said...

Me too. I'm about ready for a band. For me I think a lot is bloating. Ugh.

I have many friends who have gone through IVF and due to the added hormones of your cycle and now being PG, well you're going to show sooner then later Hun! It all happened to them too!! :) Nothing out of the ordinary. I have a friend who at 8 weeks, appeared to be 16 weeks. Seriously. LOL.

But hey, yay for not fitting clothes, cause your preggo! :)

I must not be totally screwed up just yet because I'm genuinely happy for you.

Adriane said...

Too funny!! Are you bloated and constipated? Bet that is part of the issue! Congrats on your first article of maternity clothing!
