Gotta love Kim Kardashian! Not only does she continue to find ways to shock (you DID hear about last Sunday’s lady-part "smell off," did you not?), but she is totally not letting pregnancy cramp her style at all. Kanye’s baby mama was spotted out and about the other day in a revealing sheer blouse, through which you can completely see her bra.
When I went through my own pregnancy, I remember both loving and hating what was happening to my body. In particular, I hated the barfing I did for about six straight weeks, 24 hours a day (so much for "morning sickness"), but at the end of my first trimester, I hadn't gained any weight except in my boobs. Yay! But then, I stopped barfing and started eating around the clock, and I very, very quickly made up for lost time, going from hot mama to small whale mama. Yikes!
During that time I was also working in an office 9-5, totally focused on saving money so that once my baby was born, I wouldn't have to go back to work right away. Feeling like a hot air balloon + having a casual-dress office job + being in saving mode meant that I invested in only a few boring pieces of maternity wear, and once I totally outgrew my regular clothes, I just wore those things to DEATH.
As time went on, I got more excited about meeting our baby, but began to totally lose my sense of style and of SELF -- something that actually took me a long time to regain. I really think that splurging on a few pieces of cute, sexy clothing would have helped me not just enjoy my pregnancy a little more, but not feel so completely like I had lost all my identity outside of "Mama."
Don’t get me wrong -- I have loved being a mother ever since the instant I first held my baby girl (something I’ll be eternally grateful for). I literally would not trade it for ANYTHING in the world. BUT ... being a mother doesn't have to erase the rest of you, and while matters of "self" go far deeper than clothing, sometimes a sheer, sexy top is all you need to remind yourself about who you are. Right, Kim?!
