My Lovely Lady Lumps

Curves ahead?

You know those quizzes in magazines that promise to help you find your body type, thereby teaching you to dress for your body?  Well, I always wanted the hourglass figure, but alas was usually stuck somewhere between being apple shaped and straight (sometimes called “boy shape” – there’s a self-esteem boost, right?).

Well, pregnancy has definitely provided me with some new curves and I’m not quite sure what to think.  The other day while I was getting ready for work my husband checked me out from behind and said:

“Whoa! That’s crazy. You actually kind of have hips now.”

I wasn’t quite sure how to respond… “Thank you?”.

What will life with curves be like?  I’m not really sure.  I suppose it’s a little hard to tell with my giant belly distracting from the silhouette right now.  I guess I’ll know in a few more months once the belly is gone.  I’m hoping that maybe the hips and decolletage will distract from the squishy post-baby belly that’s sure to ensue.

One thing is for sure…I will probably have to reassess dressing for my body type.  Maybe I’ll even give those magazine quizzes another try.

How has your body changed during pregnancy?

How did your body change post-pregnancy?
