1. You get a new wardrobe
Unfortunately, most maternity clothes fit awkwardly at best and look more like bedsheets than dresses or shirts. Early in your pregnancy, every outfit you put on sags, practically frowns, over your suddenly formless body.
Later, it’s your belly that sags – out from under the hem of each of those giant, ugly, suddenly tear-stained blouses. Nevertheless, most first-timers can’t wait to slip into the world of elastic waistbands and tie-back tops. I remember receiving what’s called a “lot” of maternity clothes I had ordered on eBay.
I spun around like a princess in each jumper and baggy-butted pair of jeans, demanding my husband invent something to compliment.
I was four months along and barely showing, but to me, the bad clothes – and specifically my needing to wear them – confirmed that I was really going to have a baby, something it took me a surprisingly long time to realize.
