Sometimes pouting vocalizes our feelings enough that we realize what we need. In my case it was more maternity clothes that fit (I was down to only a few things–like, literally only a few) and some freedom to move forward on the quiet page patterns and kits I’ve been working on. I won’t get into it all, but I will say that I found some maternity capri jeans and some modest maternity shorts and some more modest comfy t-shirts and that, combined with a few other things, gave me more than just a retail therapy pick-me-up. It wasn’t just buying things, it was knowing that I can look and feel a little better and more comfortable, which I’m super grateful for.
Anyway, it’s late and I’m tired, but I wanted to say that things aren’t all bad. My hands and feet are still swollen and I’ll still have to shave again in a few days and my hair still looks like I don’t know how to do it (because I don’t), but at least I have more than one pair of pants that fit, so there’s that.
