Now that I've actually started purchasing maternity clothing ... at 22 weeks mind you ... I'm feeling better about my "expanding" belly ... I am actually starting to feel kinda cute :D ... Its starting to be kinda fun having perfect strangers look at my belly and smile :D ... As long as I can keep those pesky stretch marks away from my belly ... so far so good but again, lets keep our fingers crossed. I guess it was all in the fit ... I can certainly still wear my regular clothes ... well some of them ... but I feel like all of a sudden, my stomach started hardening up and was a lot bigger than before ... so its made regular clothing a bit of a "challenge" ... so again, I feel much better now that I have lots of maternity options in my wardrobe :D All of this "growth" has meant ... well to some extent saying "good bye" to my Bella Band (http://www.doulashop.com/bella-band/index5.html?gclid=CPqy4M7iip4CFQEhDQodpxexpw) ... I anticipate on continuing to use it to some extent but like my BFF, O'Meika said, "girl, you'll only wear that for a little while." Well, she was right ... but I did wear that thing religiously for about 3 months. I'm officially into maternity clothing ... sign that my little one is such a "big girl."
