Shopping for Materinity Clothes

I am to the point in my pregnancy that I can no long wear any of my pants or shorts, but I am not quite big enough for maternity clothes yet. But I decided that I would go shopping and try to find something that would halfway fit, or would fit better than my pants! As I began trying clothes on I had to sit down and just cry!!! I know this sounds silly and very hormonal, but I can remember walking past maternity departments in the past and saying to myself, "that is one department I will never be able to shop in!". And now here I am not only shopping in this department but trying on maternity clothes and they are actually fitting! So after I had myself a good cry, I paid for my new clothes and headed to the next store, only to have to sit down and cry again!!
After an emotional day I came home with several pants, shorts, tops, and dresses!!
I also came home so thankful for this journey God has brought me on, and look forward to the journey ahead!

Oh, Marsha, I do not think that is silly or hormonal at all! What a blessing the Lord has given you in allowing you to carry a child and experience all those little joys that come with being pregnant. I am so happy for you!

I think that is pretty normal. I cried once driving Dmitry to School with Sophia strapped in her car seat because for so long I had tried to imagine those little day to day moments.

I think it is wonderful that you are able to see the gifts given in just the little day to day things.

How wonderful! Just pack some Kleenex in your purse, and cry all you want! How funny this is, but when I was shopping Saturday, I saw the maternity section and wondered if you needed those clothes yet, but I figured you would because your frame is so small! Little did I know you were already shopping! Congratulations!

Just let those tears of joy flow because God has given you a wonderful blessing!! Now I can't wait to see those belly shots of that sweet tummy in those jeans! Preganant women are always so beautiful!

Isn't shopping for maternity clothes so fun??!! I found that once I started wearing maternity clothes it became very obvious that I was pregnant. Regular clothes are much too restricting. Can't wait to see your next belly shot!

Blessings,
Melinda

It has taken me FOREVER to be able to be happy for someone who was/is pregnant. I used to want to burn down all the Motherhood stores. Now after having to endure a hysterectomy I have finally understood the path the Lord chose for our family. And this path has led us to 2 beautiful boys. What more could I ask for?!! Congrats and cry all you want. My hormones are still all our of whack and probably will be for some time. Enjoy your new clothes!!!! I am sure that you will look too cute in them!!!
