Dear Pre-Pregnancy Clothes

Dear Pre-Pregnancy Clothes,

I just thought I would take a moment and tell you I don't like you very much right now.  If I had Bailey in my arms to show what I had went through during pregnancy, and the reason I gained all that weight, I might not be so unforgiving to you right now.  But, since I have no Bailey to prove that the 26 pounds I gained was for good reason, I'm really just kind of bitter. 

Most moms after 2 months would love to be able to fit into clothes just like you...  But, I just thought I would let you know I'm not them.  In perfect world circumstances, I would be happy to be back wearing you, and on my way to leaving you in the "fat pre-pregnancy clothes" box, because I am still losing weight.  But, since it's way sooner than I planned on wearing you, it's just yet another painful reminder that things aren't the way I planned.

Pre-Pregnancy clothes, you have managed to make your way into my Picture a Day section.  I'm so upset with you right now, that yes, I even took a picture of you.  Because as I document my journey, you are part of the process. 

One way or another, I won't be wearing you for long.  I either will continue to lose the weight, and you will go in the box, or hopefully I will get pregnant again, and will be tucking you back on the shelf, because my belly won't be able to fit into you.  I guess only time will tell which place you are going to be headed...

Sincerely,
Your very bitter owner

I like your post. I have felt the same way. I hate that I can now wear the pants and shirts that I had recently packed away just a week or two before Jacob was born. I was so happy to be putting them away and getting the maternity clothes out.
I didn't end up getting a chance to wear most of the maternity clothes and then I suddenly had to put the maternity clothes away and take out my pre-pregnancy clothes. I also hope to be putting them away soon, not to be seen until a successful pregnancy and some time to lose the weight.
I'm hoping my belly will get bigger quicker this time, as I hear happens with second pregnancies, and I will get to wear more maternity clothes sooner.
I hope you will be taking out the maternity clothes soon too.

It seems like there are reminders everywhere we turn. I'm hoping you'll get back into those maternity clothes soon.

But losing weight can sure make you feel good about yourself - I know it did for me.

Big hugs! I hope your weekend brings you some peace.

I hope that you will be able to put away those pre-pregnancy clothes and bring out the maternity ones soon. Thinking about you!
