Two legacies of pregnancy

Filed under: Personal, Pregnancy — Tags: , , — llcall @ 7:54 am

(Besides the baby, of course.)

1. I never want to go back to my pre-pregnancy jeans.  It turns out, I love maternity pants!  (Naturally, Neal is thrilled about this.)

2. Every time I have an itch, no matter how minor, something in the back of my mind says, “Crap!  You better not be pregnant!”

I confess I saw the maternity pants thing coming from a mile away, but I don’t think anyone assumes that itching is going to be their key pregnancy symptom (if you don’t know the back story to this and want to, you can basically catch up with these three posts).




  1. I had INSANE eczema when I was pregnant too. I thought I’d go crazy! As in your experience, it was pretty unexpected and completely unwelcome.

  2. Wow, what an association to have! I definitely miss the comfort of elastic waistbands, but I do prefer my old style (and size!).

  4. maternity pants are nice…and so are leggings. Since that’s what I basically lived in while I was preggo…I haven’t stopped just cause the baby’s out! However, I can not rule out the awesomeness of when I fit back in my pre-preggo skinny jeans–“halleluliah!”
