Okay I have to admit to an addiction. I’m only 17 weeks and I’ve bought WAY too much maternity clothing. Today I added to it with a cheap bathing suit, two bras and a top from Mothercare (all on sale except for the bras). I picked up a couple of things that shouldn’t really fit but sort of do from H&M maternity in their sale. I’ve spent stacks of money on ebay buying gap maternity tops and a Motherhood Maternity dress, all from the US and not available here. Hopefully the best thing I’ve invested in is a very cheap (on ebay again) Belly Belt kit that expands your normal pants to a bigger waist. And thankfully my mother brought me some sweat pants (for those extra fashionable days) from Canada as I haven’t been able to find any plain boring ugly ones here. So I have a hell of a lot of tops, most of which are really cute (the gap ones are all silk and lovely patterned) and I’ve already started wearing them as they are nice and not huge in the tummy area anyway, but just longer than normal. The pant department I think will be a problem but I will cross that bridge when I come to it.
I find it annoying that we don’t know what this kid is as baby clothes are on sale everywhere. The perfect little dresses in Monsoon… but I shouldn’t buy stuff this early anyway, should I.
I saw a picture of Jennifer Garner’s perfect little bump (holding Affleck offspring) on the Celebrity Baby Blog. She’s about the same amount pregnant as I am. I don’t have a perfect little bump. I have the same amount of flab as before, it’s just that the lower bit has seemed a bit harder lately. What can you do. I think it’s going to turn into a double roll/bump soon – I’ve seen photos on babycentre.com of American women in my situation! And I seem to grab it/rub it/hold it more than normal.
Received my welcome pack to the Tesco parent and baby club today. The magazine had an expert that said all pregnant women stop losing their hair. Okay I still have hairs falling out of my head when I wash it/comb it when blowdrying. Does this mean that there is a problem?
Also it hurts when I sneeze. Is this normal?
