Why Didn't Anybody Tell Me: Dressing For Second Pregnancy

Why Didn't Anybody Tell Me: Dressing For Second Pregnancy

My first pregnancy was all about mini dresses and skirts, but the second go-around — not so much. Aside from the fact that I still carried around five pounds of previous baby weight, as the rest of it packed on, I was constantly on the move. There was no time to style my hair or pair shoes with purses. Short apparel doesn't work when you are hoisting a 2-and-a-half-year-old up onto a play structure or sweeping her off her feet. Dry clean-only outfits weren't options anymore — unless I wanted them permanently marked with Cheerio crumbs or sticky hand prints. Pregnancy fashion is similar to everything else in motherhood, you learn as you go. I had to laugh when I caught this Cool Mom clip. Did you dress differently for subsequent pregnancies?
