I think I've found the best maternity jeans in the world...well, the best ones in my price range anyway. I know some people pay over $200 for designer maternity jeans, but my budget is a bit smaller. I've been walking around for weeks and having to pull my pants up about every 5 steps. I intended to make do with the jeans I already had from before, but I couldn't stand it anymore. I went to Motherhood Maternity yesterday and tried on their Secret Fit Belly style jeans, and they are awesome! I wore them today, and I've only had to pull them up a couple of times. I took some pics just in case anyone else is pregnant out there and in the same predicament...
Jon was in the bathroom getting ready for work this morning before I left for the dentist. I tried to take a pic in the bedroom (because Jon would make fun of me if he saw me taking photos of myself), but the lighting is terrible in there. When I got home and had the house to myself, I took pics in the bathroom where the lighting is better. I also used my new tripod that Jon gave me for Christmas...it's really quite handy. These are the bootcut style, and they actually come in petite too!
Here's a belly shot.
I cropped my head off because I had a really goofy look on my face. I always have a goofy look when I'm trying take a good photo....it's very frustrating. So I've decided that from now on, whenever I'm in a pic, I'm going to make a deliberately silly face. At least that way, I can say I meant to look stupid.
Another great thing about these jeans is the back pockets. I don't know if you're aware of this, but most maternity jeans have teeny tiny pockets that sit quite high on the booty. I didn't realize this until my 9th month with Savy when Jon very tactfully pointed out that, "Those little bitty pockets sure do make your a$$ look big." On these jeans, the back pockets are big, and they are situated low on the booty, so it doesn't make a bad situation worse. If you buy these, do buy them a little snug...they tend to "grow" because they're 2% spandex and very stretchy.
Savy saw me making funny faces at the camera and wanted to get in on the fun.
Then I wanted to try to take a nice pic of the two of us, but she still wanted to be silly.
Savy had a good day at preschool, and I got to go to the gym this afternoon. I'm so glad to be off this week!
