Skinny Jeans, Now???

Okay, fashion powers-that-be. I have a bone to pick with you.

Why, after so many years of putting out things that did not look good on me, did you pick this year of all years to bring back skinny jeans? Non-pregnant Denice looks GREAT in skinny jeans. I am 5' 4" and all legs. And although there have been times that my legs have been much leaner than others, generally my legs tend to be my best feature.

Fashion Fiascos for me over the past 7 years or so: I am VERY short-waisted so all those low rise jeans just look like regular waist pants on me. And crop tops? Not crop tops on me. And that two year period where lime green and yellow were in? The worst colors in the world on me. Flared leg jeans were okay, but when you are only 5' 4" they don't really help make you look any taller. I could go on, and on, and on!

And now I am pregnant Denice. My thighs and ass have gotten rather bigger than they typically would be but I am okay with that, because if that's what has to happen for me to have a healthy baby, then c'est la vie. But that also means that for the short period of time that skinny jeans will be in, not only can I not wear them, I won't look good in them like I usually do either!
Because I have a feeling that when baby comes in January, I will not be one of the lucky few who can put her old jeans on a week after giving birth. I'm pretty sure it's going to take 6 or 8 months of aerobics and running and weight lifting to get this body back into it's previous shape. And by then skinny jeans will be out, and it will be back to something that looks hideous on me.

Why, why WHY?????

Try not to think too much about it. You'll give yourself a headache, girl! I'm sure you'll get your figure back faster than you think, especially if you plan to breastfeed - more calories burned!

So when do we get to see a picture of pregnant Denice? Everyone has those pregnancy pictures - mine all looked like I was ready to pop any day even when I was 7 months pregnant!

Okay! That sounds like fun! There aren't any pregnant pics of me yet. It would be good to have one for the baby book. I'll get hubby to take one of me this weekend and I'll have it posted soon.
