Adventures in Pregnancy – Outgrowing my clothing!

Today I packed up a couple of utility bags with work dress pants, workout bottoms, sports bras, and workout tank tops that are no longer comfortable to wear right now with my growing, changing body.

And this might get some eye rolls, but this is all so uncharted for me – I have basically stayed the same size for most of my teen/adult life and I was still able to fit into clothing I wore in high school (which was half my life ago…), so not fitting into stuff is a weird feeling for me. It isn’t a BAD feeling, it’s just a NEW feeling…

But this is absolutely THE BEST reason not to fit into my clothing, and so I am choosing to further EMBRACE and APPRECIATE this miracle, because it IS a miracle, and I AM grateful to be able to experience this.

And while I don’t expect my body to be exactly the same in the time after the baby, I do know that my habits and my lifestyle will afford me to get back to where I was, or close to where I was, and so I will happily pack these items away and make room for some maternity stuff now, and I will cross any other clothing bridges when I come to them.

Did you fit back into your pre-pregnancy clothing?
