Parents of lost babies and potential of all kinds: come here to share the technicolour, the vividness, the despair, the heart-broken-open, the compassion we learn for others, having been through this mess — and see it reflected back at you, acknowledged and understood.

ttc | pregnancy | birth after loss > Work uniform

My job is ordering uniforms for everyone. I'm newly pregnant (6w4d), got to see the heartbeat already, so far so good. My previous two pregnancies ended in the stillbirth of my son at 37 weeks and a miscarriage at 6 weeks, so needless to say I've kept quiet at work. The problem is they want my size for uniforms! They will be ordering me two sets. Should I get both in my normal size or get one normal, one larger, or one normal, one...eek...maternity. What say you readers of glow? I tend to not show until very late but I'm already feeling my belly popping, I think due to it being my fifth pregnancy (2LC, 1 SB, 1 MC, then this). Not sure how long my normal size will work.

I've never had to deal with this but I think I'd get them both in my normal size or maybe in one size bigger? I don't know...I don't think I'd want to answer questions! Good luck!
