Goodbyes

stripes5

I'm not really excited about it, but I'll be getting rid of my colored hair on Friday.  As you can see in these pictures, I have been waiting until the second trimester to dye my hair again.  Since pink/purple hair requires me to bleach it first, I have to pick an alternative color.  The safety of my baby does come first, but that's not to say I'm not bummed about it!

Since my body is starting to resemble something I'd see in a fun house mirror, getting dressed has been difficult!  I own hardly anything tight or stretchy but I feel most comfortable in something that accentuates my pregnant belly.  So far I've been able to wear two different skirts one one dress from my closet.  I broke down and ordered a few "bodycon" maternity dresses from ASOS.  They're tight, stretchy, and don't look like I've completely given up on my wardrobe.  I'll hopefully have them by the end of this week!

As for my massive closet filled with fit and flare dresses, they're still wearable but make me feel huge.  Maybe I'm just being vain, but with all the changes I've endured I look forward to celebrating my new body and actually wear things I would never dream of pre-pregnancy... if that makes any sense!  I'll still wear them from time to time, but I think they're just going to be a constant motivation to whip myself into shape next year.  Plus, I'd never forgive myself if I tore one of favorite dresses!

This week feels like I'm saying goodbye to a lot of what I think makes me "me".  But it's just the beginning of the process that will eventually lead to giving my entire life to my child.  And that actually excites me more than anything :)
