Re: Maternity clothes

I just feel like maternity pants are so much more comfy than regular pants or using the rubber band thing. I resisted maternity stuff with #1 for a long time, and now I think why?? Just go for the comfy maternity pants!

Re: Maternity clothes

I'm a size 20-22. Before getting pregnant I lost about 60 lbs and gave away ALL of my bigger clothes. The pants that fit or were just a little big before pg are just uncomfortable. So is the rubber band trick. I wore a pair of maternity pants the other day and they were SOOO comfy. I can't wait to get more because they feel so good! This was unexpected. . . last time I didn't need Mat. clothes until I was almost 5 months! I'm 10 wks right now.

I think it totally depends on how you carry the baby (like Eileen said) and how much weight you gain. But honestly, in that last month, I don't know anyone who didn't wear maternity clothes. It's just awful wearing normal clothes that don't fit properly.

I totally agree.

Re: Maternity clothes

In my first pregnancy, I couldn't WAIT to get into maternity clothes. It seemed so special.

In my second, I approached that with a small measure of dread.

This time I'm determined to wear my normals as long as possible, but... the plan is to spend as much time in my pajamas as well, hah.

I have been browsing oldnavy.com, because they have loads of yoga type stuff and cozy shorts and things. I might get some of those while they're on sale.

Re: Maternity clothes

^ I have the non-maternity Gap yoga pants and I say go for them! I'm living in mine at the moment.

I think if anyone buys anything they should post pictures or links I'm already searching for the perfect dress to wear to a friend's wedding in July. I don't like dresses above my knees so it's going to be tough.

Motherhood is having a Buy one get one half off sale. I bought Jeans - http://www.motherhood.com/Product.as...ategory_Id=MC6

and leggins- http://www.motherhood.com/Product.as...ategory_Id=MC5

Re: Maternity clothes

I have some hand-me down maternity clothes, and for the most part i just buy clothes a size or two bigger and buy more square-cuts. I <3 Old Navy for "maternity" clothes. I actually went today and bought some really cute, roomy clothes for this summer

Re: Maternity clothes

My biggest concern right now is fitting into a bridesmaid dress in August for my baby sisters wedding. I need to call David's Bridal today and figure out what I'm going to do.

Re: Maternity clothes

Motherhood maternity is doing "buy one get one free" on all their clearance stuff. I went there yesterday and got a whole bunch of stuff and didn't spend that much money!! (They have TONS of summer stuff!)

They're also doing BOGHO on select styles of jeans.

Re: Maternity clothes

I have been wearing mostly atheletic style knit comfy pants or pj bottoms for the last 10 day. Today I tried to put on my "normal jeans" ummmm I can't even call it i muffin top. It was more like a muffin Pop. I am sooooooooo freaking bloated. I am now wearing a pair of khaki maternity pants that somehow missed the maternity tub. They are soooo freaking comfortable. I am going to make my DH go find my maternity tub in the garage
