OK ... so this is a bit of a rant/questionish post
Not that I am in them yet, but I will be shortly... maternity clothes. Whenever I am NOT pg there seem to be so many that are cute but when I AM pg they're nowhere to be found. I'm on baby #5 including my angel and I tend to need them fairly quickly. So here's my dilemma...
#1. Not only am I pg but I'm chunky. Oh, and by chunky I don't mean I'm mad that I can't where a size 9 anymore, I mean I am short ,stocky and round sportin' a size 18 which doesn't bother me in and of itself. It's just that the accessable maternity stores are not geared toward the chunkier mama. I tried on a pair of extra large crop jeans yesterday and not only were they fitting funky on the waist with not much room to spare but they were regular length pants on me rather than short pants
Did I mention that I'm 5' 1? Here's the thing. I'm not like really huge or anything, I'm like the average fat chick of America
, I should be able to buy regular maternity clothes. At least I think I should.
#2. What's up with the gramma styles? OK ok ok, I'll give it to Motherhood Maternity for beefing up on the trendiness of the styles however, they are still FAR too pinky and flowery for me. Where does one find relevant and functional maternity wear? I am a skater punk rockin' crunchy Mama with piercings, tattoos and kids with blue mohawks I just want to feel like myself this time around without having to live in the same one pair of black stretch pants LOL!!! You know the ones...?
#3. So last but not least, I KNOW I'm not the first person with this gripe so pleeeeeaase tell me if any of you hip mamas know of kewl places to get rad clothes! Being pg is so sexy and exciting and I just know there must be some secret resource I just haven't tapped into yet that facilitates the pg mama with funkier tastes. Any WAHM sites? Any sites or stores etc... ? HELP!!!!!
If you feel my pain let me know I'm not alone
