Midwife Visit #2

video

P.S. I'm on the verge of needing to start wearing maternity clothes (either from excessive gas or from my ever-expanding uterus). I hate to buy new maternity clothes for such a relatively short amount of time, and I'm a bit too busy to scour Houston for good, used stuff (school starts s-o-o-n!). If you happen to have a box of maternity clothes that you aren't using and would be willing to lend to me, please e-mail me! I will gladly pay for shipping. I'm 5'7" and I used to wear a size 6/8 or medium.

YAY! I'm so happy to hear your little one's heartbeat! If you haven't heard of this already, I highly suggest a Bella Band. You can find them online or in some maternity stores. (In fact, I saw them at Target in the maternity section a few weeks ago.) It's basically just a band that helps you extend the wear of your regular pants a bit longer. It helped get me through that awkward belly-too-big-but-everything-else-still-the-same-size stage.

Dresses are the best "maternity" clothes. I hated maternity clothes - do NOT go to "motherhood maternity" and buy expensive ugly clothes you will never wear again. I went to Francesca's (there are 5 in houston) the clothes are reasonable and I could wear the dresses during all stages of pregnacy, post-partum, and now! The best part is you can let it all hang out under the dress

I agree about the bella band! it's the best thing i've ever bought

i'm at about 30 weeks and i still wear mine! (i have yet to buy anything maternity which is beyond awesome)

i did get the tank top one too because i felt it was a little more secure

Michele said...

Yay!!!! (extra exclamation points certainly warranted)

Sara said...

Sending more and more good wishes your way! I'm so excited that everything is ok :)

such a sweet sound!

before the bellaband you can also do the *hairtie* trick: loop a hairtie thru the button hole of your pants and then around the button-->voila! no need to button up your pants! [now you just need shirts long enough to cover that!]

It warmed my heart to hear that strong and steady heartbeat! I'm so glad all is well Sara.

I can't hear the video from work, but it sounds great. I'm glad you can breath a sigh of relief.
Enjoy the rest of your pregnancy.

At around five months I finally needed some maternity things. I went everywhere I could think of and hated EVERYTHING. In desperation I went into Delias and walked out with tons of clothes. I bought everything they had that had a loose fitting belly, which was a lot. The baby doll fit is super popular right now and at eight months, I can still wear them all. I plan on wearing them for postpartum and even beyond. I've been into Motherhood Maternity twice; the first time I was so disappointed but the second time they had a ton of new stuff and a huge sale going on so I walked out with a nice "business" outfit for pretty cheap.

FM said...

Yay!

E-bay is a great place to find used maternity clothes too! I found the best strategy was to look for auctions that were lots of several items each(saves on shipping.)

So glad you got to hear a healthy heartbeat. :)
