I really like these–on sale, too–and I love that they’re navy–but I never know what navy shoes go with? White, yes, but khaki? Gray? Probably not so much? What’s the rule?
From Nordstrom’s site:
So…I thought Old Navy was no longer my friend in the maternity department after a semi-big fail with jeans purchased when I was pregnant with Ian. Don’t get me wrong, they are okay for warmer weather when short pants/capris are the norm, but not when it’s still cold (and yes, even though it’s more springy here so far this week, that woman I saw yesterday in capris was wrong–TOO early). But on a recent trip to ON I found a number of cute things–not only for Ian–but really great prego jeans for $20 that look as if they are designer quality…go figure.
And yes, I enjoy a full panel!
I don’t go looking for clothes I can’t wear now, but I drooled over a shirt I saw when out shopping last week–this time at Macy’s which isn’t really a place I go to find shirts. I wish I knew I’d fit into it down the road if I had bought it in my pre-pregnancy size.
I’m a little nervous about what my body is going to be like after this baby. Fortunately, after Ian was born, I had to diet for almost 6 months, restricting milk, eggs, nuts, and soy so I could continue to nurse and keep the allergens from entering his system. The fortunate part was not me sticking to this diet because boy, did I drink a ton of black coffee and eat a boatload of beans…and miss out on so many yummy treats–all during holiday time, too–but this enabled me to get down 5 or 6 pounds lighter than my pre-pregnancy weight–a weight I haven’t been since before I went to college! So I have a lot of work cut out for me, I fear, when I am trying to get back into shape after this summer–and although I don’t want to be on that diet again, you will follow the rules ever so strictly when it comes to the well-being of your baby. So if I don’t have to restrict for this little bug, then I’m not sure I’m going to be able to stick to any plan that will help in the food department.
I feel bigger now at this point of the pregnancy than I did when I was pregnant with Ian at the same number of weeks. But after looking at my notes, I’m one pound ahead than I was last time around. I feel like I’m definitely carrying the weight differently this time. And enjoying a few too many sweets…
