Fashion and the pregnant lady…oh the dilemmas. I full well understand the fact that in a few months I will be showing and have already ordered a bevy of maxi dresses and pregnant appropriate wear. What I didn’t expect was to start having issues this early on. Since June is literally busting out all over my work dresses are starting to become a problem. Today I have a meeting and it is 90 degrees outside. I usually opt for a stylish wrap dress and some peep toe heels and today was no different except that I needed not one but three safety pins to keep the damn thing closed! Last year this dress fit perfectly- dare I admit I am wearing something from last season??? Last year DVF and fabulous- this year Diane Von Bustenberg. My bulging chest makes me feel like a sexy librarian porn star- except that I am not naked underneath and about to perform dirty acts on anyone around me. I am heading out to a client meeting soon so I am hoping this will work to my advantage.
I have been wearing the sea bands pretty religiously and they are my favorite feel good/not look good accessory. I am not wearing them today due to short sleeved wrap dress and have had a couple waves of not feeling so good. I think I am going to whip those bad boys on as soon as I get home so I don’t feel worse later. My appetite is nil. Nothing sounds good to me at all. I am so over all of my lunch options downtown. I need some new options. I can’t think of one thing I would like to eat during the day. I had an amazing salad for lunch with my girlfriend yesterday but even ordering that was a challenge. The Cesar salad was made with raw egss and most of the salads had some sort of feta or blue cheese which could be an issue. Luckily I found an amazing salad the Gigi- at the Palm- if only I could have that every day! Shrimp, avocados, beans, tomatoes- delish! Also love the name Gigi! The lunch was so much fun-she was so excited an supportive- love her! She suggested that I take a folic acid supplement like she did during her pregnancies because of the spinal wonders it does for the bebe and I say it can’ t hurt. How much is enough? Since the body eliminates any extra why not add a little more into the mix? Folates are also common in asparagus and spincach which I normally enjoy but don’t necessarily have every day. Nothing else to exciting to report here…looking forward to Monday’s doctor appointment where I can get all my questions answered….let’s hear it for tanning lotion!
