Destination how much???

Ok so aside from all the other expenses that comes with a new baby (i had nooo idea those popular Bugaboos you see all the mommies strolling down the streets of NYC were so darn expensive) you also have the expenses of a whole new wardrobe for a, very brief, 3 month period of time! Im 7 months preggos now and have finally given in to the fact that I can no longer squeeze into any of my jeans, no not even the cute “loose” ones you rolled up and stilleto’d out pre-baby bump. No i NEEDED true maternity jeans and leggings, oh and some nursing bras (sexy ones with a supportive underwire and some no wire soft cups ;)). Having thought alll that, I made a pit stop over at Destination Maternity. Oh boy, mama went crazy ya’ll :/. I only got the bare essentials and BAMB…still came up with a bill totaling the equivalent of a Bugabooo! Yikes!!! Moral of the story…I can never complain about the price of a safety carrying mechanism for my child again! Sorry baby, mommy will never complain again and will hApPiLy give you the world :D…in moderation **wink**

    Hey I don't how you fit yourself into your pre-pregnancy clothes… I made a pit stop there in January because I could not zip my pants in the plane flying back to the States! I bought a pair of jeans, one legging, two tops – one tank and one cute for going out (day or night) mamma mio creams for belly and boobs and 2 underwear (yes, I could not fit in my panties anymore as well!!) it surely was expensive and I don't remember expending that much on myself in am long time, but you need to feel comfortable especially in your belly area. I don't how big yours look like, but mine at 5 months is HUGE!! Also, I bought working out gear at Gap, pretty reasonable price. Check out Ann Taylor Loft (they have cute stuff and not too expensive) and also subscribe for Gilt Group. I sent you that invitation a while ago and there you can get discount and super cute trendy stuff too! So check it out!!

    GGGggggurl I am on Guilt everyday thanks to you!!! They have great stuff! I'll definitely check the Gap out and already have a few things picked out from Ann Taylor Loft that I really like. And you're right I guess we shouldn't feel so guilty. I mean it is stuff we REALLY need to feel comfy these days. I bought undies too! Couldn't deal with the tiny tangas anymore. Hahaaa. Use a whole lot of the belly cream! Im almost half way through with the jar I got at Destination. Lol…as Im rubbing I repeat my daily prayer: Please God help this cream to help me avoid the stretch marks…lol…

    LOL That is great! I am happy to hear you checked out gilt. They truly have cute unique stuff (for moms to be too!) that is worth purchasing because you can compare the products else where and Gilt (til now at least) always have the best price. I bought these huge undies nothing to do with VS for sure!! hahah

    Definitely get a massage, lots of foot rub and get cozy!! :) Please keep in touch and let's share info. It is soo much fun doing this!! Love to you both, xox MissCris
