Default Wow, these weren't supposed to fit yet! (NSV)

I ordered a pair of american eagle jeans online in a size smaller than what I've been wearing, because my jeans were getting a bit loose. I figured they wouldn't fit yet, but I was hoping I could fit into them in 2 weeks for my husbands graduation from Air Force Basic Training. Imagine my surprise when they arrived in the mail yesterday and I tried them on just to see how close I was to fitting in them, and OMG they fit perfectly. Now I'm afraid that if I keep losing at this rate that they'll be too big by hubby's graduation lol.

One more size and I can buy my AE jeans in the store again (they only carry up to a size 14 in the store, anything higher than that you have to buy online ) I finally feel like I'm starting to get back to my pre-pregnancy/pre-marriage body
