The Boobs That Ate Connecticut

I caved and bought new bras today. Giant, ugly, purposeful bras, the kind with at least three vertical hooks in the back. Water-balloon launcher bras. I was too chicken to look at nursing bras yet – that’s an adventure I’m putting off as long as possible – so I stuck to the lingerie section at Walmart meant for the most generously endowed women. No cute polka dots or fancy lace in the bunch, just yards and yards of scratchy, unforgiving fabric. It took me longer to find 3 comfortable, soft bras than it took to clean my oven. By hand. (It’s a self cleaning oven, I just suddenly felt the need to make it cleaner.) I should really make the trip to the fancy lingerie store, have my chest professionally sized and actually spend the money on nice bras – but I don’t get to keep these things forever, and with all the other stuff I need to buy, bras fall pretty low on the list. I suppose I could always use them as infant carriers in six months. Or a hammock.

    Are you sure you should be handling oven cleaner? Isn’t that what your husband is for?

    Excuse me miss, some of us deal with those things on a DAILY BASIS. WHEN WE AREN’T PREGNANT! I’ve been wearing granny bras since I was 15! I’m horrified about what will happen when I someday (maybe) get knocked up. These things can’t get any bigger!

    @Stacy: that’s what I thought then I got knocked up. yeah, I’m almost to the point of buying new bras and I’m not even out of the 1st trimester.

    Also : have you tried target? I like their Gilligan and Omalley brand they come in soft cotton. Although i have not yet ventured out of my size so who knows when you trade up…

    @ Stacy: That was clearly a joke as getting E to do more has been a common jest on this blog. Tust me, it’s not like I have a maid…I’m a dirt poor student.

    @Erin – Stacy meant the huge boob issue not the oven cleaning issue. But don’t worry, I checked the can before I used it, no babies were harmed in the cleaning of my oven.

    @ Stacy and Bebeh

    Clearly the education isn’t taking…sorry!

    @Erin, lol no worries. I understand what long classes and little sleep can do to the brain!
