We are starting to get back on the horse, little by little. We have been out and about lately, just to try things out and get out there. We have been running errands, grabbing coffee etc. It’s just nice to get out of the house and also to challenge ourselves to figure this all out. How do we work around the babies schedule? Where do we stop to change the baby? Or drop everything and have a breastfeeding session?
My wardrobe is still in a weird transitional place. I’m definitely not able to fit into my pre-pregnancy size zero pants, that’s for sure!! And since I literally just had a baby eleven days ago (!) I still have a little bit of a tummy that I’m not keen on showcasing. So I picked up a few over-sized tops like this awesome neon embroidered top from H&M. During my pregnancy, I purchased a few bottoms that were not maternity items, but rather just several sizes larger than my pre-pregnancy size. These items are proving to be quiet helpful during this transition period (like these shorts), but I have also still been wearing some of maternity pants as well. Another bonus is that now that my swelling has subsided, I can wear these sandals again! Also, two things: 1. The swelling got worse before it got better (just for a few days). Can you even imagine it worse than it was?! 2. I still haven’t really tried many of my shoes on and don’t know yet if my feet have changed sizes for the long run. I also think I am still a little bit swollen, so we will see.
