From March to July, I have tried to add some style to my belly that was becoming bigger and bigger everyday.
At first it was pretty fun, but closer I am to the due date bigger issues I have to wear something what I really like.
Well, let's be honest, with almost 20 kilos plus, nothing really suits me anymore and even if there is an extra large dress that could look nice on me, I just don't have any motivation for pregnancy style left (at least not this days).
Igor's boxers became my best friends! But don't worry I don't leave the house in them. :D
What I have learned about style, shopping and my body while pregnant...
Well, for sure suddenly there is so many cool clothes that you would buy-wear if you only could fit in.. You know this feeling when you need something new but than you go in shopping and you find nothing? Well, that doesn't happen when you are pregnant. When you are pregnant and you optimistically go in shopping - you find amazing things, which sadly you just can't wear.
Why I said optimistically goin' in shopping and what is the side affect of that kind of shopping?
Optimistically, because not taking in to account that your belly is so big that you can't see your knees anymore, you still try to shop in Zara. You just hope that clothes will fit you if you take one or two (or three) size bigger clothes. Not working! At least not if you gain my weight. There are pregnancy collections for the reason, I just didn't won't to admit it.
It's funny when you return all your clothes after trying them - not because you don't like single one of them, but because not single one of them fits you(r belly) (even with BF's help :)
Side affect of that kind of shopping in 'non pregnancy' shops is that you get so frustrated because nothing fits anymore and you want it to fit so much that you end up buying things you love, hoping you can wear them the very next moment after giving a birth to your little gorgeous miracle.
Not very realistic thinking, but hey, you have to give some false hope to a women bursting with crazy hormons.
But, there is something nice, something good I have learned about my body during my pregnancy.
Don't get me wrong, I do love being pregnant, it's a special period, feeling life inside of you, his soft (and in the end not so soft) kicks which makes you wanna smile forever.
But there is also a little bit less nice side about pregnancy like your body changing a lot, I mean really a lot.
I am not gonna go in details about stretch marks, cellulite, fat. A big belly is so damn cute, everything else, little bit less!
So, what I have learned is that I was way to hard on how my body looked like before pregnancy. I wasn't really satisfied with not being perfect but now looking back the pics on my blog, I actually like it.
I still think I could eat more healthy and do some extra pilates workout to gain some nice muscles but I like it, actually I like it a lot ;) And I am so happy about that fact and hoping I am gonna keep that in my mind and not gonna be to hard on myself after birth when there will be a time to go back to my "old body".
If you have some good advices how to get nice and gently back in form after pregnancy, I will be happy if you share it with me.
I was a little bit longer this time, but I know you like to read me, lol.
P.s.#1 Oh yes, about the photo - the photo is the mix of my "pregnancy looks" that I took and publish on my Instagram from March on, until now. Thanks god for the mirror in our building entrance, haha :)
P.s.#2 Don't be to hard on my english today, I just didn't have any motivation left to check the spelling once again. But I know (hope) it's not that bad ;)
Calm down, take care and come back again!
