Completely freaked out over a dress

Wednesday, September 28, 2011

The title says it all. I am wreck... completely freaked out by a stupid dress!

My sister-in-law asked my to be a bridesmaid in her wedding (although I am against the idea!) but I said yes. I bought a dress a couple of months or so ago. In fact, the day the dress arrived was the same day I found out I was pregnant. I was trying the dress on and still had it on when my hubby told me the test was positive.

Anyway, the dress was HUGE on me. At least 2 size too big, maybe 3. My MIL sews and said she would take the dress in for me. We had a lot of work to do. It hung in the back and under my arms. The shoulder straps were too long and the dress itself was too long. It was also too big in the hips/stomach. But we figured we would wait until close to the wedding to take the dress in in case my body changed drastically from being pregnant.

Glad we waited. The dress fits me now. All we are having to do is take up the shoulder straps and hem the length. It fits every where else. :(

I am totally bummed. My weight isn't up that much and I can fit in all of my prepregnancy clothes with the exception of one pair of capris... but they were my smallest ones. So I just cannot figure out why or how my body has changed THAT much!!! I just don't get it. And I know I shouldn't let something this trivial bother me, but I can't help it. I shouldn't be this "thick" this early on. I know this is baby #3 and my body is going to get bigger faster, but still... this seems excessive.

And my MIL's comment was the best: "I can't believe you fit in this now. It was HUGE on you before! I don't want to take it in under the arms because it will just suck the fat!"

Thanks for that, dear MIL. I feel fantastic now.

    I'm so sorry that you had to hear that :( It is unfair that the dress is fitting now, BUT remember that it takes a lot to grow a little one and your body really isn't all your own right now. I know it isn't much comfort, but this is temporary and you have all the tools you need to get back to where you were and then some once the baby is born. We are here for you in the meantime and we love you just the way you are!! emoticon emoticon

    MIL's: Can't live with them....oh wait, who would want to? That was thoughtless of her, but maybe she had a senior moment. I use that excuse for everything! I'm sure you'll look great!

    Sometimes I think that people in general lose the filter on what they say when talking to a pregnant woman. Sorry she hurt your feelings.
