a MOTHER of a sale!

For all of you who wanted to see my belly, here you go! Just kidding... I had to sport this towel so I could try on all my new maternity clothes! Robbin told Billie Jo who told me about an amazing clearance sale + extra savings at oldnavy.com, and I got a little carried away. I really wouldn't have spent that much, but Noah encouraged my bad behavior! I got so many clothes, it is crazy... I DEFINITELY did my part adding to the McNeil girls' maternity pile. Just thought I'd give you a preview :)


The spoils!

Here's what my belly actually does look like (or did a couple weeks ago - I feel like it's grown a lot recently). I haven't actually gained any weight in the last month (which means I'm actually balanced out to an ideal weight gain so far since I was chub-wub in trimester 1 :)

I have the mid-pregnancy ultrasound in 3 weeks, so Noah will come with me. We are definitely excited to find out what we are having, and we'll let you all know as soon as we can!

You silly! When I looked at the first pic, I knew it wasn't true because it was way too high and way tooooo big. I'm happy you had fun at a sale -- that's always fun. Even though you don't look big anywhere -- I know you do feel very big and THINK you are big. Again -- silly girl! Love you much! Can't wait until Friday -- by the way -- when are we supposed to be there to pick you up?

We'll have a rental car, so don't you even worry about it... I didn't try to make my belly look real, I just shoved that towel in there, so I understand that it's a little off :) Remember to call me when you have more info. LOVE YOU!

We can't wait to see you in person. And seriously... no belly whatsoever. I never want to be prego at the same time as you!

The Gunnerson Family said...

Whoa, you are HUGE! Yeah right. I can't wait to see the spoils and to get to reap the rewards of your shopping! Two days and counting until I get to see you in person.

You are so cute and even when you finally do get a belly you're so tiny that you will be one of those adorable little pregnant moms!! I wonder if that clearance is still on, I should check it out. Well you better let us all know as soon as you find out what you're having. Any hopes for one or the other? I'm so excited to have our babies so close together. It'll be so fun to see them grow up together. Hope all is still going great with the new job!

Oh giselle can you even call that a belly? J/K but really my post baby fat is like 3 times that size still and adi is 1. Well I LOVE the new clothes and can't wait to find out what you are having!

Billie Jo said...

Sad but true I am sure my regular belly is bigger than yours. Can't wait to see you in person. Great addition to the stock. I am sad that you are finding out what you are having but it may take you that long to transport the 100 tons of girls clothes to AZ if you are lucky!

Jody said...

Giselle, seriously how lucky are you!?! You are such a tiny little thing. Glad to hear all is well, and good luck with the upcoming ultrasound. Very exciting!

The DiStefano Family said...

The Cox Family said...

Sales are the best! I loved shopping for maternity clothes because it was new and exciting. (That is until I got really fat!). You look so good and won't even have to worry about that!
