Note the heading… it’s not even pretty/stylish/gorgeous/professional-looking maternity clothes. After looking around in Singapore, I can only say that the choices available are really… (shakes head). Seriously, the last thing a soon to be really ‘big’ and mostly looking fat rather than pregnant woman in her 2nd trimester is awful clothes that just makes her look like a sack. Of course, being taller than average really didn’t help. Erm, plus I like mostly minimalist/plain outfits i.e. no flowers, frills or lace.
When I first started shopping during my first trimester, I quickly realised that the choices from maternity wear stores that I visited were mostly pathetically frumpy/old-fashioned/shapeless, or ridiculously expensive. Then as the bump started to grow bigger, and the need for maternity wear really increased, I went around asking where mummies got their clothes from during maternity. Common choices:
As mentioned in my last post, I have a really long shopping list for the baby (and myself). Since I hate to rushed and get stressed at the last minute and am rather picky about the stuff that I use, I’ve also added product or brand names next to those items that I’ve done some research on and/or have bought. Some links are also provided, mostly to Amazon cos I like to read product reviews before I buy my stuff. Still a couple more things to add as I go along, but I’ll try to keep this updated.
If you are a new mummy/daddy reading this, hope the list helps and happy shopping!
So… this is really just a place for me to pen down my thoughts (and whatever that I happen to be fiddling with at the moment). Having created a blog to chronicle my home renovation process, I think having one for my pregnancy/baby will help me to keep some memories alive, plus keep things somewhat organised at least when it comes to shopping and buying stuff. Since I am 15 weeks along by the time this is published, you can imagine that the baby shopping list is pretty long by now – but I’ll keep the shopping list for another day.
To start the ball rolling, here is a quick preview of some of the items that I am eyeing/have bought:
