I broke down and bought my first maternity wear item: jean capris. They are a tad big because they didn't have my size but I can grow into them. I'm doing ok on work clothes because I can hike my skirt up enough to be comfy, but still have the skirt hit right at or below the knee. I feel like urkel, but it works. For now.
On the weekends I live in sweatpants or this skirt:
I also bought two more skirts similar to this one - one in black and one in gray. I'm fine with purchasing maternity clothes but I feel like it's too soon that I SHOULDN'T be buying them. I think my sister said she didn't buy maternity clothes until the 20-22 week mark. I'm 17 weeks. I know everyone is different but it's hard to tell if this extra padding is bloat, the baby or a side effect of taco bell double deckers and very little working out. I'm looking forward to getting out of this in between stage and having a full on belly!
Baby Wagner is about 5 inches long and the size of a turnip.
