Looking back, which is something I do more often these days, I can say with all honesty that the only thing I hated about being pregnant was the clothes. Never had much morning sickness or, with the exception of seafood during the first one, any food aversions - that I can recall.
But, oh heavens, the maternity clothes. I had a black corduroy jumper that I must have lived in toward the end and - I promise you - it was not a good look. Big black belly, skinny white legs, and - need I say it - corduroy. What a picture.
Now, there are gorgeous items - like this navy and ivory skirt - that don't scream pregnant and ugly. With a navy tank and ivory jacket, or vice versa, I could see this in my wardrobe. Casual, classy, and comfortable - just what every woman craves.
And don't even get me started on this beautiful satin dress with the handkerchief hem. While designed to camouflage a blooming belly, the style would also disguise my middle-aged belly and, not-so-youthful, hips. It's just a perfect Arizona outfit - cool and floaty, it would be just right for almost every season.
Yup, maternity clothes have certainly changed.
