Personally, I’m very disappointed that no one has told me about it before. I’ve blithely gone through life without knowing the feeling of true bliss.
How many times have you sat down to a Christmas Dinner, or Thanksgiving meal, or some special occasion and over eaten. Been left straining inside your suddenly too-tight pants? Well fear this no more because help is at hand!
If you have never tried on maternity pants before, I totally suggest you do. My God. It’s like wearing a sofa they’re so comfortable! You don’t even need to be pregnant… these bad boys are stretchy and will hug you no matter what size you are. I’m never taking them off. NEVER!
I bought my first pair reluctantly at just past 12 weeks. I felt like a total fraud… I mean, I was just fat, no bump. My old pants were uncomfortable because I put so much weight on (I had really bad nausea that only eating lots of carbs would settle). I didn’t want to waste money on pants that I would only (please God) grow out of soon, so getting pants that would grow with me seemed logical.
The Handsome Husband and I slunk in to a Maternity Clothing store, trying desperately to avoid the staff and the inevitable “how far along are you?”… What was I meant to say “Oh… I’m an hour and a half pregnant…” Anyhoo, I managed to grab a few things and make it to the fitting room unmolested.
And then I put them on.
Heaven in denim form.
Oh sweet comfort and happiness! Straight away I said to the Handsome Husband “I’m never taking these off”… And ever since they’ve been known as my “party pants”, because even if we didn’t still have our Wee Beanie I would have bought them – and would be wearing them to all dinner parties in the future.
If you’re pregnant… Seriously, don’t put off getting in to these pants, don’t let modesty ruin the opportunity for true bliss.
And if you’re not pregnant and love food, seriously… Go and get some! Every big meal from this day forth will be a complete joy! While every one else is complaining about how tight their pants are and how uncomfortable they feel… You’ll be sitting back and smiling, and reaching for that extra slice of cheesecake…
