It’s hard to believe that it’s been almost 20 weeks since my last post. If you haven’t figured it out by looking at my pictures,(no I haven’t just gained some extra holiday weight), I am officially 20 weeks pregnant. I apologize to any of my readers who were wondering why I just dropped off the planet, and appreciate all the awesome e-mails asking me where I was, and to please come back.
I am finally coming out of what can only be described as the worst beginning to a pregnancy ever. Â I suffer from a condition calledÂ hyperemesis gravidarum, which is also known as severe, unrelenting morning sickness, accompanied by many other disgusting and not so fashionable side affects,that left me bed ridden, and worst of all bound to a life of sweatpants and expandable waist bands. I wasn’t sure I would make it out of bed, let alone ever blog a fashionable outfit again. BUT, you can take the girl out of her skinny jeans, but you can’t take the skinny jeans out of the girl. As the nausea lifted, and the cloud of sweatpants started to disappear, I was determined to pull myself together and work this bad ass belly of mine.
Okay okay, so it’s not that easy. Â So what if I cried a few dozen times while trying to squeeze myself into all my new fall clothes. So what if I tried to use rubber bands to get my jeans to close, and pledged to wear black every day till the end of this pregnancy. Â So sue me Â for snarling loudly at the sales girls in the pregnancy shops for bringing me shirts with arrows pointing to the bump in my stomach that say, “Baby on Board!” Â Or the shapeless giant frock, the sales woman said I would grow into, and learn to love. “Seriously lady, for real, these are my options?” HELLO…calling all designers, there’s like a trillion pregnant women around the world at any given moment. Â We are all desperate to look and feel a little less fat and have a little more variety. Can you help a sister out?
So, I propose a challenge. Â For the next 20 weeks, Project Tracy will be Pregnant Tracy and try and take this blog into the world of pregnancy fashion, while still maintaining my same vision. Fashion for the masses, no matter shape, size, budget, or belly size. I would be eternally grateful if you passed this blog along to anyone you might know who is pregnant and not ready to settle for moo moo’s and their husbands shirts.
Thank you so much. I would love to hear what you think.
