On cups and cribs

I’m expecting a visitor today, so this’ll be brief.

I finally have a nursing bra I’m happy with. And yes, I’m talking about my breasts again. As you may know I’m well endowed in the mammary area, too well endowed. I hate it. And it’s been worse while breastfeeding. I only went up one cup size from a DD to a DDD – but the problem hasn’t been so much the size as it is the components of a nursing bra. You see- while nursing your breast sizes changes over the course of a day and therefore nursing bras are made to be flexible – which is not overly supportive. The only nursing bras that I’ve seen that purport to be supportive are also riddled with weighty ugly seams that show through clothes and I don’t want any more attention drawn to my unwieldy bust line. But last week my mom got me two new nursing bras that are both supportive and seamless and I’m on cloud nine. The cup size is off by one because they don’t make DDD, but the little bit of run over I’m experiencing is worth ignoring for a little bit of lift. Hallelujah! I feel ALMOST normal. Of course it probably won’t be long until I shrink them so I better enjoy it while it lasts.

Things are still a bit sketchy with the crib. There is too much room in there for Noah’s tossing and turning and therefore he’s waking himself up more often. Last night he was up at 11 pm, 12:30 am, 2:30 am, and 5:00 am. Yawn. Hopefully it’s just going to be a few nights of transition and then he’ll go back to normal. PLEASE!

All right. I’ve got to go pick some things up off the floor so it’s not such a godforsaken mess around here.

when you said "expecting a visitor" I was wondering if you were using euphemisms for menstruation. but I see it's an actual visitor.

Ooh, what kind are they? Our busts sound very similar. That was a strange thing to type wasn't it.

My mom buys almost everything at The Bon Ton.

They are Tomorrow's Mother

The trick to not shrinking the bras is to wash them but don't put in the dryer!! Didn't your mother teach you anything?
