Um, I'm pretty sure that these horizontal stripes make me look even more gigantic from behind (not that anything would make me appear tiny and slender at this point). The stripes are cool in concept, but I'm wishing I had just stuck with the coral all around! Oh well. Live and learn. (Anyway, how often do I wear short sleeves without a cardigan? Not often.)
I'm 32 weeks pregnant now, and at my last appointment, my midwife told me I look "ripe." I'm taking this as a compliment? Ha.
