Nerves and shopping sprees

My amnio is now about 4 full days behind me, and I listened to little Doppler's hb last night and all seems well. I've (of course) been super-sensitive to every little ache and pain in the abdominal area since the amnio, (because complications of amnio usually occur within the first 48 hours) but I think I'm probably in the clear by now. *fingers crossed*

Soooo... I decided to bite the bullet and go SHOPPING. Mind you, I've been too nervous to even take my maternity clothes out of the basement yet, but Ol.d Nav.y is having a big maternity sale (through 2/18 for those interested). I couldn't NOT take advantage of it! I bought a couple of pairs of pants, and about 6 shirts for $102. (I also had a coupon and a little money left on a gift card, so it ended up being just $89 out of pocket.) Then, when I came home I checked their website and realized that 3 of the shirts I bought (same style, different colors) were $2.50 less each on the website. Being the bargain hunter that I am, I ordered them online and will return the others to the store. (By the way, I ended up ordering 6 shirts online, for $50, with FREE shipping with a $50 purchase using the code ONGIVE50). All in all, some good deals, folks.

And the best part? D was an ANGEL the whole time we were in the store. He just chilled out in his stroller while I browsed, tried on, and paid. It was a good day...

Sorry I've just been lurking lately but wanted to say how encouraging your journey has been:-) Yeah for great results!! Can't believe you can still hide your pregnancy. Good for you!

That's awesome. I think the last time I shopped at Old Navy I was pregnant and just starting to show. I needed something that would fit me comfortably, and I found a perfect pair of maternity capris that were cute and only $10.

I'm glad you had a nice day with D. shopping :)

We only have Old Navy maternity online now, but when I was pregnant alot of it was in stores for great prices. This pregnancy I have found some great deals online and needing an xs with my son and the beginning of this pregnancy they had some of the more affordable maternity clothes that actually fit!
