I'm Not Pregnant...Yet



So, what is with the "Hi! I'm pregnant summer fashions? It is driving me insane. The majority of the female population are not hip-less 12 year olds. Even the models look preggers. I keep seeing the style everywhere. Grr. Hello! I have a waist! I'd like to not look pregnant. I'd like to show off my curves, isn't that why I workout everyday and deny myself all my favorite foods, just so I don't look fat? Sigh.

Maybe it is just baby lust. I feel surrounded by babies or mothers to be and I want to be one. Time goes by so slowly. Things are still in line for starting to try in January, but that seems so far away. But until then, do I want to look pregnant? NO!! Of course by the time I am pregnant, will I be able to find this type of clothing? With my luck, no. Maybe I should buy a bunch when they go on sale, so to have them next summer when (I hope) to be preggers.

yup. wait til they go on clearance and buy up all the cute ones. but make sure you buy them a couple sizes too big cause if you get pregnant in january you will be pretty far along by the time summer comes.

I like the dresses but yes, the fashionable-not-preggers-but-look-preggers looks got me kinda skiddish.

Once you've been pregnant you will never ever again want to wear and empire waist dress. I think this everytime I watch a Jane Austen movie. I have my hips back - and I'm not losing them under reams of fabric. Ever. Again.

A recently married friend has been wearing fashions like these, prompting rumors she is preggers. Of course no one will ask in case they offend her!

Michael,

I can't blame your friends for that! If she's not preggers, then it is implied she's fat, when she's just wearing an unflattering style.

Carrie - too true and funny!!!

I am only 5'4", so it really does make me look pregnant. I guess I'll save some $$ this year not buying as many spring/summer tops? :)

I finally got around to that post about being a parent I promised you.

I was preggers before it was fashionable to have your preggo belly hanging out for the world to see. I would have been SO into that!
