Maternity Clothes and Baby Books

My grandma so kindly bought me some maternity tops a few weeks ago and I love them. They are comfortable and they help people figure out if I am acutally pregnant or have just been storing up a hefty fat supply for the winter. A friend also gave me some clothes, but she is so tiny that even her maternity things are just a little too small for me. I do not want to be spending money on maternity clothes because I don't ever plan on doing this again. I combed Craig's List looking for a "lot" of used maternity clothes for a good deal. There were a few but they were all small or medium. What?? Don't medium to large ladies have babies and sell their clothes on Craig's List?

So off I go today because I actually have some energy for the first time in a long time to buy some more tops! I am cool with two pairs of jeans and a pair of black pants, but I need shirts. The above photo is of my maternity jeans. SEXY!! I look like Tweedle Dum walking around in them before I pick out a shirt, but they are ridiculously comfortable. I don't think I will ever wear non-elastic band pants with zippers ever again.
Now that I am comfortable being pregnant and don't use the Baby Beat everyday or think gloomy thoughts about what could happen to me or the babies, I am ready to put together a pregnancy book. They have really cute ones ready to go in stores, but they're not really for infertile people who did IVF. There are slots of u/s photos, but not for embryo pictures. I love that we have pictures of our babies as embryos! It's just something really special that we got out of a shitty journey. They also don't have slots for emails from the fertility clinic with my beta numbers wishing us congratulations. Also something that I'd like to save forever. So I am going to go Martha Stewart style and make my own baby book. It's a better place for the ultrasound photos than the mismanaged accumulating pile on the kitchen table.

  3. Hi,
