 I’d say that this post is just for fun, just in case Jordi or I ever need maternity clothes in the, you know, far, distant future.  But that simply isn’t the case.  Yep, the conclusion you’re coming to is the right one- I (Kirstin) am going to have another baby!  YAY!

I’ve been dying to tell y’all, but definitely fall into the category of very-nervous-first-trimesterer.  So, sitting at the 14 and a little week mark, I thought I’d finally share the fantastic news.

We are thrilled!  We’re excited for burke to have a little brother or sister (we are some of those annoying folks who wait until the delivery room to find out the gender) and, depending on the moment you ask, we are either very excited or absolutely terrified to become a family of 4.

Last time I was pregnant, I went the borrow-from-friends and buy-things-I-find-on-the-clearance-rack-at-Target route for maternity clothes.  I wasn’t aware at that time, however, of the wide and wonderful world of refashioning clothing.  So this time, I plan to attempt a maternity project or two.  I’m not quite at the place where I need to start refashioning clothes into maternity wear yet, but I figured I’d get a head start on some maternity sewing research and share my results with y’all.

  6. Hi,

    You have a nice blog. A 40-week pregnancy is really just a blip in our whole life time, but the problem with maternity clothing during that time is very painful.
