I made the slideshow using Windows DVD Maker. It came on our new computer. I still wish I could show everyone the original, but I had trouble uploading to a sharing website like YouTube or Vimeo. But hopefully you got the jist!
Where did you shop for most of your maternity clothes? looking back through your archives you always dressed so cute! :)
Thank you for the compliment, because I always felt like I was not a "cute pregnant person!" I got jeans at Motherhood Maternity, but for my next pregnancy I'm going to invest in some nice maternity jeans. We didn't have a GAP Maternity, so I'll be going to St. Louis next go-around for that. Some friends let me borrow a few dresses. A lot of the time I would buy non-maternity tops that still fit. Thankfully tunic-type tops were (and still pretty much are) in style! Like I said, because I'll be able to afford nicer jeans next time, that's the one thing I'll pay more money for. I found that maternity jeans were either too tight with the elastic around my tummy (I HATE having things cutting into my stomach!) or they were falling down to my knees if it was the under-belly elastic style. So if it's one thing you invest in: Jeans!
As a side note, I didn't gain very much during my pregnancy with Evy (I think 25-30 pounds was my total, which included 7 pounds being Evy), but I'm still going to try and gain less with my next pregnancies. I wasn't even eating badly or all that much; I just need to be more conscious of things the next time(s) around. Now that Evy has been born, losing the last of the baby weight has been difficult. But I'm also trying to get below what I was when I got pregnant, so I have a little more to lose. So learn from me and really try to watch your weight in pregnancy. Obviously you have (and should) gain some, but it's not necessary to gain a ton. So we'll see how I do next time!
