I'd love the nursing tanks- I just ordered some medium ones and I am busting out of them... hopefully they'll fit later on.

i've been avoiding this thread but it's time i jump in....

love the boobs, despise the hips! and my tummy is much flabbier the third time around. before i got pregnant with this babe i was the thinnest i'd been in years so i feel ultra big. ezra is only 2.5 weeks old & i know it took me a good 6 months to get down to pre-preggo size after both the girls but the thought of facing a summer with these thunder thighs & flabby stomach is killing me....and i'm usually not body conscious even though i'm faaaarrrr from perfect!

i generally wear a lot of skirts in the summer & many of them fit me but i like form fitted tanks which currently make me look 5 months pregnant!? ugh! and the tanks with built in bras, well, i fall right out of them. i'm normally a small B cup so i can get away with going bra-less but these D's are somethin'.

So I just BAM! whirled thru my closet and donated a bunch of clothes to goodwill- who wants to have a bunch of sh*t that she can't fit into looming around as she's trying to figure out what to wear?!?!

I feel reborn! I have kept a few things I really do think I'll fit into later on and are usful, but on the whole, it's time for a change. I don't have to resign myself to my Mother's fashion just cuz I am a Mama now too... I am buying a big glam shiny-gold diaper bag. And my toenails are getting painted gold today too... and I will continue to wear my bindhis and gold eyeshadow and generally be the eccentric fashion renegade that I am!

You know when you see a really fly self-lovin' woman walk down the street and it just INSPIRES and makes one proud to be a woman? That's who I am going to continue to be.... that woman, but with a babe in a sling!

Baraka - I am doing the same, getting rid of everything that I can't wear basically and starting new! I think I will feel fabulous when I do

I didn't have too much extra $$$, but I did order a couple shirts from old navy. Nothing glam, but hopefully, I'll fit into them!

I caved in and bought granny panties today. It took 3 children and nearly 30 years, but I have officially turned into my mother. I'm going to cry into the tent of fabric that is my new underwear now.

I bought grannies for the first week after being home thinking that tehy wouldn't bother my incision. They rolled off of what was left of my baby belly and onto my incision anyways so back to string bikinis it was! yay! I am not yet my mother

My mother wears no undies

I only wear thongs normally so this pad with full butt undies is driving me nuts!
