This is how it went, I found out I was pregnant and I thought I was going to blow up by the following week. That next week though, I was going to be out of the country and I guess I must have imagined there are no stores for me to go shopping in another country.
I panicked a tiny bit and went shopping and found this comfortable little black dress that could stretch with me as I got bigger. It is not a maternity dress, but I call it a maternity dress. I found it at Ross for $10, I love Ross by the way because of those prices!
It had sleeves but I could roll them up and with the jersey material which is so thin that it didn’t feel hot. After I purchased the dress I realized I was being a bit crazy, so I only bought that one dress. I wasn’t even showing, all my clothes fit and I was just a new silly pregnant woman.
I wore it for my first month photos and then took it with me on our Guatemala trip. I wore it in so many ways while on the trip. As a dress, as a shirt and for lounging around. It was that easy to throw on and wash.
I came back and wanted to hide my growing bump until I was ready to announce our pregnancy. I had a reunion with my sorority sisters and as much as I wanted to tell them the good news I had to hide it. So I wore my dress as a shirt with a belt and black pants. I was told by several of them that I looked like I had lost weight 😉
Now that the bump is getting bigger I’m sticking to wearing it more in the house since it doesn’t look too much like a dress anymore. At least for a soon to be mommy. The bump is bigger so the dress is more of a shirt than a dress.
