So, on Wednesday morning of this past week, I awoke to find that all of a sudden most of my pants are too tight. Even though I know this is really a good sign that our little, now 2-inch long little baby, is growing, it's still not easy to come to grips with. We started 2009 off by kicking off a much healthier lifestyle at our house, and both lost about 20 pounds by the time I found out I was pregnant. I know that my pregnancy will be a healthier one because of this weight loss, but it sure does make it difficult to see those pounds slowly creeping back on!
I tried on 2, maybe 3 pair of pants before I finally found some jeans that fit, with the help of my little "magic button". Thank goodness! I don't know quite what I would have done if that hadn't worked. Maybe gone shopping for some maternity pants in my pajamas? :) I didn't expect this to happen so soon, I guess. I thought I'd have more time before things started changing this much, but I'm quickly learning that is not the case. Now that I can see some physical evidence, though still very small, it is sinking in a little more each day that there's a real baby on the way.
Anyway, back to the pants. Needless to say at this point, I wasn't too excited about the newfound tightness of my waistbands. Honestly, I was pretty bummed about it. If I had a cute little baby bump, I don't know that I'd feel that way, but at this point, I just look like I'm putting on the pounds and wearing pants that are too snug! Thus...all day Wednesday, I wore "grumpy pants".
A few of my friends and I used to talk all the time about the "_______" pants we were wearing. Some days they were "Fancy Pants", others they were "Bored Pants" or maybe even "Crazy Pants", and on the not-so-good days, we wore our "Grumpy Pants". I am working hard to wear "Thankful Pants" and "Happy Pants" these days, even when the pants I put on in the mornings are just plain "Too-Small Pants".
