Lesson #3: Maternity jeans are a mom's best friend.
Diamonds? Yea, my rings didn't fit from about 20 weeks pregnant to 20 weeks postpartum. No lie. But, you know what did fit and never let me down? Maternity jeans. They are pregnancy's peace offering for stretch marks, sore boobs, acne, and baby-bangs. And, honestly, they just about make up for all those terribly unfortunate things.
Yep. I LOVE maternity jeans. And, yes, I wore them until Sam was six months old at which point they literally ripped down the middle - which is probably a good thing since I might never have given them up on my own will.
Mamas, don't be shy. Wear those things for as long as you want, and wear 'em proud. If you need an excuse, say your c-section scar still hurts or you don't want to buy new jeans until you've lost all your pregnancy weight - works like a charm!
I wore these beauties from Old Navy (gotta love the irony of Maternity "skinnies.") And - stop it! - I just saw that they now have colored jeans/jeggings in maternity too. Someone convince me not to go buy six pairs right this minute.
