Initially when I found out I was pregnant with my second child, I was ecstatic! That is until I realized that I was due in the middle of September. Not good. Two reasons: 1) When I was pregnant with my first, and at my biggest, it was the winter in a very cold and snowy climate. I was never too hot, and I could layer and hide how fat I had gotten with all of my winter maternity clothes. It was great! 2) Since, I have moved, and not only does it not snow, but it gets SMOKIN' HOT in the summer! I'm talking above 100 degrees! So as I've grown, and I use that term very lightly, I have no maternity clothes for my new scalding climate. I have been desperately trying to find clothes that are comfortable, that are loose and cool (like temperature wise). Not to mention that will hopefully make me feel somewhat cute or attractive during my "swollen" state. Skirts/dresses pose a problem being that I have already have a 2 year old and babysit other kids quite frequently.
So, this brings me to my questions that I need to "Ask the duplex". Are gauchos socially acceptable? Can pregnant women only pull them off because they're pregnant and everyone feels sorry for them, but in actuality no one should be wearing them?
