Now it's warm and since I'm gargantuan, none of my lighter clothes fit at all. Last pregnancy I only ever wore my warm-weather gear and I think I just sort of dealt with the problems that are driving me crazy now (actually, I think the novelty of pregnancy was alive and well and convinced me I was adorable with my chub rub and belly bouncing out from under my shirts. This time, not so much.) Anyway, last pregnancy I bought two huge singlets and used safety pins to make darts at the boobs. They already feel too short (I actually think I might have shrunk them last pregnancy when I kept sending them to the gym laundry because I was too lazy to rinse them at home). I feel my belly hanging out when I wear them. I also bought a maternity running skirt, which is the only light bottom I can wear without feeling really awful (just a little awful). All my shorts feel horrible. My legs and butt feel so fat and that feeling is exacerbated by the shorts. I do prefer short shorts when I'm not a tub, so that's probably a lot of the problem right there! I need some granny shorts, I guess.
I'm thinking of hitting up Target and buying some more gigantic singlets and maybe some longer shorts. Maybe that will help. Other than that, anyone have any ideas? Is it pathetic that some days I consider not running because I feel so gross in my clothes?!
* Mrp took a picture of me this evening playing around with peanut post run. Notice the cankles in full effect! I had my first swelling of this pregnancy. It was 84 degrees and we took a long drive. I went to the park immediately after we returned and the funny thing about a mile into the run I had to relace my shoes because the swelling went down and my feet were sliding all over in them!
