The poster of this article is either: a) Wealthy to the point that spending over $200 on a sweater that you wear for four months is meaningless.
b) Not pregnant, but just going ‘Omg look at all the beautiful pregnant ladies and clothes!’ There are so many flaws here I can’t even. First, you realise summer is coming right? Even in the UK, a leather jacket is a bit much. Adding sunglasses to the list is insulting—do you think my head is really swelling *that* much? That Free People tunic? Yeah. Not pregnancy approved. I’m sure you’re all like, ‘But omg it’s big and billowy!’ Great. Doesn’t stretch. Ever try to put a shirt on that was once big and billowy on you but isn’t any more? You CANNOT get it on. Stretch is your friend. From someone who is 6 months pregnant and due the end of August, let me tell you real necessities (for a summer pregnancy): A goddamn bra.
Maxi dresses (they work early on and throughout the pregnancy if they’re jersey!)
Jeans (or a band so your old pants fit)
Shirts Done. All that extraneous spending? Have you seen the statistics on how much the first year alone costs? Anywhere from 5k-10k GBP (so that’s even more in USD!). Makes you really think about your choices in buying that ‘cute’ (blech) cape for $300.
