Mater-need-ty Clothes.

Here is a rant for the day. 

I went to Target in search of a few maternity items and was shocked to see that they had done away with their Maternity section! I have to admit, I was pissed. I went to Old Navy a month back, same thing. So I’m sitting here thinking, WTF is up with that?? Do designers not think that pregnant women wear clothes? Do we walk around wrapped up in blankets??? Do they think that every pregnant woman is a “Fit Mom” who can fit into pre-pregnancy clothing? (Power to those hot momma’s who are!)

If women come in all shapes and sizes, wouldn’t it be smart to expect that when they are pregnant they would come in all shapes and sizes as well? I am not a small girl, never have been. Even at my fittest, I’ve had curves. So I didn’t expect to be one of those women who would be small while pregnant. But the fact that finding something to wear is a bit tough, it’s pretty freaking crappy. Can I buy “regular” clothes in a bigger size? Surrreeee, but then I end up looking like a hot ass mess!

Hey DESIGNERS!!! How’s about a little love for the momma’s??? You tell us that we are “hot” and look “great”, yet you shun us when it comes to the rack. We spend money just like any other woman would. We are probably willing to shell out more because we are looking for comfort. So how’s about showing us more love? 

I apologize for the rant, but I couldn’t keep it in!! Lol lol.

Ice Ice Baby…

As I sit on my couch attempting to plan out my Monday, I realize, I have not left my apartment AT ALL today. This is all thanks to the lovely sheet of ice that currently coats the steps and street outside. It makes me think of all of the women that have looked at me and said, “Girl, at least you are not pregnant in the summer.”

Yes, they are right. At least I’m not pregnant in the summer. With all that heat and ridiculous discomfort. But at the same time. Do NOT get it twisted, while I may not be suffering from the heat, I am looking around trying to not to lose my footing while walking in the snow. I do live in fear of days like today, when there is ice on the ground and someone decides not to salt their part of the sidewalk. Winter pregnancy comes with its set of fears and discomfort too. While I’d rather be cold than hot, I’d also rather be walking on solid ground and not attempting to ice skate in my winter boots. Lol.

Just a thought.
