How's this for naieve?  I'm not kidding the day after birth I dreamt about fitting back into my skinny jeans again.  I knew for any other new mom that there was really no way they could fit into their skinny jeans immediately after birth.  I was hoping I was different.  My Grandma was able to literally walk right out of the hospital with her "skinny jeans" on and I was hoping that maybe I got her genes.  ;) I hated maternity clothes and even though they try to stay trendy I wanted my clothes back.  I am hugely into fashion and it was depressing last spring when all the new summer fashions were out and I couldn't partake in them.  So of course, having a baby in the fall was making me crave to get into some fall fashionable clothing...NOT MATERNITY CLOTHES.  Just for fun the day after I gave birth I tried to put on a pair of my size 0 jeans.  LOL, why did I think that the after birth weight did not apply to me?  So two weeks after giving birth I just wanted to wear something cute and normal.  I knew I was going to have to get larger sizes because obviously there was no way I did fit into my jeans.  I thought I was just run to Target for something cheap since my thought process was that I would not be wearing this size for long.  Oh wow, I had no clue!  It was a horrific experience.  Nothing was basically fitting.  I was having flashbacks to my larger days.  I could feel the tears forming so I dumped all the clothes I had not even tried on yet on the counter.  I flew out of Target, dropping my sunglasses in the process, and not even stopping to pick them up.  By the time I got to the car I was in a full-fledged meltdown.  I called my husband for comfort and could barely see out of my eyes the tears were coming so fast.  I kept saying, "What if clothes never fit me again?  What if I have to wear maternity clothes forever?"  My husband did a great job listening but I don't think anything was going to make me feel better at that point.  I realize now that two weeks is way too soon to slip back into regular clothes.  My skin, stomach, and pelvic bone were and still are not back to normal after delivery.  Since I'm exercising and eating the right foods and still am currently not losing any weight it's time to bring in reiforcments.  I am off to Jenny Craig tomorrow.  Wish me luck!

I was just reading your blog or should I say journal? LOL I can relate to a minute after giving birth I was already thinking of fitting into my favorite jeans to. That however took about 7 months.
