Shopping has always been my favorite activity in life. I assumed that when I got pregnant I was going to dress my bump to nine. Nope! When you’re exhausted, huge, uncomfortable and don’t wear a size 2 anymore the last thing on my mind was shopping. I spent the last few months in my husband underwear. On occasion I would have to put on our real clothes and I didn’t want to spend a ton for something I wouldn’t be wearing long. Target has upped its clothing game and I was able to find a lot of really inexpensive easy to wear pieces. These were my everyday causal favorites that didn’t break the bank.
Lets be real after you have a baby you don’t automatically shrink back down to your real size. I am not sure what all these Instagram model moms are doing to get back to their pre-pregnancy weight 4 weeks after birth but that has not been the case for me. Everything was looking great at first. In the first 5 days home from the hospital I had lost 18lbs of the 34lbs I had gained.
Then guess what……its been 16 weeks since then and I have not lost a pound. Even with working out and eating somewhat decent the only thing that has happened is that my milk production has gone down. I now have to leave the house every once in awhile so I have found 3 outfits that I feel comfortable and stylish in. The best part is all the pieces are affordable because I have high hopes some day soon this weight won’t be hanging around forever. I also have no shame in the fact I am still rocking my maternity jeans. All links list below.
