My family sucks

Pregnancy does wondrous things to your body.

While pregnant with Aryn, I pretty much got to wear all my regular clothes. I bought pregnancy pants - jeans, shorts, capris, and wore all of my normal "under clothes" and shirts. I am not a fan of pregnancy clothes, particularly the shirts with the ribbon that goes above your belly and ties in the back.

Which brings me to my next point.

As I've said before, this pregnancy has been so much different than Aryn's. I was sicker, for less time, I am craving salt, I get contractions easily, and I am not as tired as I was with Aryn. I am also carrying this kid much different than Aryn.

Case-in point: my underwear don't fit any more.

They roll down under my belly.

I wore my same undergarments the entire pregnancy with Aryn. This time around, I had to run to Walmart and... *gulp*... I bought size "large" underwear.

For some, this may not seem like a big deal. It didn't seem like a big deal to me, either. I'm pregnant. There's a natural order to things.

Then I threw them in the wash.

Preface: Ryan does the laundry in our house. I used to, and then he took over after Aryn was born and we never went back. It's fantastic.

Ryan pulled the first pair out of the basket and exclaimed, "When did we get parachutes?"

And, "Aryn, look - mommy got you a new snowsuit!"

And, "Are these for me?"

And, "You could wrap a baby in these bad boys!"

What a jerk.

Second load of laundry was today. Aryn was "helping" Ryan fold.

Aryn pulled out a pair of my brand new underwear, and exclaimed, "Ew."

My family is a bunch of jerks.


  1. LOL. Oh my. I hear you though. I had a whole different wardrobe with monster than I did D. He stuck straight out in from and D was more widespread so by the end, I had three inches of belly hanging out the bottom of ALL my shirts. It was so attractive.

    1. Yep, that's where I'm at right now. My favourite hoodie doesn't cover my lower belly! Unfair!

  2. Lol!!! I already bought bigger panties and a bigger bra-twice!!! My kid is going to be smothered by my monstrous boobs and I don't see how my belly or butt will ever bounce back.


I love comments!
