Pregnant Fashionista

Okay, okay...anyone who knows me is well aware that such a title could not be farther from the truth.  After outgrowing ALL of my maternity clothes, I was beginning to feel unattractive and isolated.  I already have strangers rubbing my belly, blessing me, praying, asking questions, etc every time I leave the house.  I didn't want to go out in the same black yoga pants and 2x t-shirt feeling like a slob day after day.

Thankfully, most people have no clue that I have a large pocket of fluid that hangs below my bikini line.  (Gross, I know!  It is swollen, bruised, and tender but all doctors have assured me it will go away after delivery.)  Anyway, I get quite self conscious about it and worry when my shirt doesn't cover my entire stomach (all 50+ centimeters of it).

Out of desperation I discovered that short, stretchy dresses make perfect shirts for my giant belly.  I picked up a few $10 dresses at Ross that work perfectly.  They have a bust line so you can actually distinguish my chest from my belly.  They are long enough to cover everything, but clingy enough not to fall to my knees in the back.  Here are my new "shirts"!
