I am now wearing official maternity clothes and am, ironically, happier—and cozier—for it. It turns out that elastic waistbands are so much more comfortable than regular denim ones—especially when you have AN EXTRA PERSON INSIDE YOU exerting pressure on your belly. It also turns out that the key to happy maternity-pants-wearing are those belly-band things that look like the bottom edge of a tank-top poking out from underneath your shirt but are actually giant soft rubber bands that help hold your pants up. I can’t tell you how much time I spent during my last pregnancy hiking up my pants. (So much time!) With my hands now full of toddler and toddler accoutrements, I really need my pants to stay up on their own this time around. I have a tendency to have overly high expectations, but I'm pretty sure that wanting your pants not to spontaneously fall off is not asking too much. Right?
