maternity clothes

last time i posted, i was feeling all bummed about my awkward phase ... i really appreciate your comments and sympathy, by the way!  i'm glad to know i'm not alone :).

since my belly popped, my jeans have been getting tighter and my shirts too short.  so i've been looking around at maternity clothes, but haven't bought anything.

until today.

at the advice of a smart friend, i went on kijiji to look for second-hand clothes.  i wasn't sure what kind of things i would find, but after a few minutes, i found a mom in my size selling her entire maternity wardrobe.  from new-bump clothes to the elephantine 40-week clothes.  two garbage bags stuffed full.  for a hundred bucks.

i went to check them out, loved them, bought them.

i have been trying them on for an hour and still have an entire bag to go.  so far, only 4 pieces don't suit me.

i now have more maternity clothes than i have regular clothes.
i didn't have to break the bank.
i didn't have the hassle of dressing rooms and a tired & bored sam.
just a few minutes prowling online and a drive across town.
isn't God amazing?

and since i now have cute clothes to put on it, i'm even getting kind of excited about the bump.

kind of ;)
