Me vs. Jeans

Remember my post a couple of days ago...about the little challenges in life!  Well let me just tell you one more that I have BEAT!!  Jeans, yes....jeans.

After I had Miss H I kept my maternity jeans out for a while.  I did it for 2 reason 1) I was still pretty fat!! 2) they didn't hurt my incision from the c-section.  Then after about the first month I could not stand those jeans any more.  For 2 reasons 1) They made me feel as if I would never get skinny again 2) they would not stay up...I was constantly pulling them up as they fell.

Off to Old Navy I went...for their cheap $19.99 jeans.  Normally I can't stand their jeans but to only wear them for a bit I could stand them.  So I picked up 2 pairs, to have Chris pick the cutest later.  I have been living in those jeans for the past 3 1/2 weeks.  No they are not my favorite, but they stay up and I feel like a real person.  Only down fall is...I have to wash them so freaking often because well they are my only pair of jeans! HA

Thus this past Saturday, I had forgotten to wash my jeans the night before.  I tried them on...but they were just to baggy from being wore for 2 days.  I reached in the closet and pulled out my NORMAL pre-baby jeans.  With a deep breath and eyes closed I put them on.  Yes, they made it up the legs and now for the buttoning........TA DA!!!  They FIT, yes they really FIT!  Whoo Whoo, I did a little happy dance and ran to show Chris.  Exactly 2 months and I am back in my normal jeans....I know it is not as good as my sister's friends, but I am pretty dang pleased with my rate of skinniness (I may have just made that word up) after having Miss H.

Take that maternity jeans and Old Navy between jeans----Off to the garage you peeps go!  I'm back in my pre-Miss H jeans and I no longer wish to see you.  Now if only I could fit in my old shirts.  I don't see that happening for many months, as well my girls up top seem to have stayed in the Triple D zone for now. (GRRR I still can't imagine paying money for them, and people do!)  People keep telling me they will get smaller as my milk regulates....um I don't have faith in that being as I feel like I have more than enough milk going on over here.  Okay now I'm in the TMI zone! Sorry

I was miss quoted. I didn't say they were in their pre pregnancy jeans. I said they stopped wearing MATERNITY jeans. I said it one week later than you and mom who told me when I was three weeks post partum that I couldn't wear maternity jeans any more. Just say'n.
Congrats!

Congrats! At least there is an expectation that the girls will get smaller, unlike some of us that are STUCK with what we got!
