When I first found out I was pregnant, I was surprised at how long the time felt between when the baby was the size of a grain of rice and when I would start showing. It felt like an eternity. At 16 weeks I’m just now starting to see a bump that’s a little bigger than a Chipotle burrito belly (aka, the usual). But over the past few weeks, I was faced with the daily challenge of figuring out what to wear that was comfortable for my growing waistline. It’s hard to make updates to your wardrobe when it’s far from maternity clothes time, but you don’t want to buy too many normal clothes knowing that you won’t be able to wear them in a few months. Luckily I like the oversized look so most of what I already own will work well into my pregnancy. But the pants are the first things to stop fitting. So… overalls! I picked these up early on in my pregnancy and not only are they SO comfortable, but they are perfect for the growing bump. There’s some natural extra room in there, and you can just leave the side buttons unbuttoned as it grows. The look kind of reminds me of a kangaroo on a mama-to-be but I don’t mind it at all.
