Flat shoes and tight waistbands

Pregnant women

It was with deep regret that over the half term holiday I made a shopping trip I have been dreading since early September. The time had come to retire my stillettos and invest in some flat shoes and boots for work.

This made me very sad 😦

However it was a necessary change as my job demands that I stand for hours at a time and with my center of gravity shifting each and every day it was inconceivable that I would be able to totter round in high heels until May.

But it would appear that sensible shoes will not be my only necessary purchase to accomodate my changing body shape and circumstances. My waistband is gradually tightening across my rapidly expanding stomach and as all of my clothes are starting to become uncomfortable it is becoming more and more difficult to disguise my pregnancy bump.

In truth it is a wonderful reason to need to reconsider my wardrobe, but it could prove costly and with Christmas on the way I know some family members who are hoping that I can hold off until 25th Dec before embracing maternity wear on a more full time basis. The biggest problem is jammies. They are the one item of clothing that should be guaranteed to make me fel all cozy and relaxed yet they currently make me look a bit of a heffalump and squeeze me in a not entirely comfortable way.

So a trip shopping for some more basics may be necessary – sooner rather than later I fear. Like his/her Mummy, Lumpy is determined to be noticed.
