In Between

Between sizes that is. As of almost 8 weeks I am not back down to my pre-pregnancy weight. Which is fine. I really didn't expect to be considering I gained one pound a week for the ENTIRE pregnancy. I figured 40 pounds would take a little time to lose.

Here's the problem: I fit into all my tops, but not any of my pre-pregnancy bottoms. So I'm still wearing my maternity bottoms. Which would also be fine, BUT we're going to Hawaii next week. All my maternity bottoms are pants. And I don't want to run around in Hawaii for 9 days wearing pants. So I've had to go buy some shorts that fit me now. This is annoying because at the rate I'm losing weight, these will only fit for the next 4 or 5 weeks. And then what am I supposed to do with them? They'll still be basically new so I won't want to get rid of them, but what's the point in keeping them? Just in case I need shorts in the months immediately following my next pregnancy, whenever that may be, if I'm even the same size? So yeah, it's irritating.

Now I'll probably get lots of comments that point out that-- Hello! I get to go to Hawaii! Maybe I should stop whining about shorts and be excited! And I am excited. Very excited actually; I love Hawaii and I get to see all my family again. Plus, there will be lots of people who want to watch the baby so I can do fun stuff. (Not that watching the baby isn't fun, but it's hard to snorkel while you're holding a baby.) I really can't wait to go.

But still, I'm annoyed about the shorts.
