anyone in maternity clothes yet? - Page 2

post #21 of 29
First baby here, so no maternity clothes, but there is a definite, DEFINITE "pooch" that seems mostly made of fat, but DH says it looks different than when I was "just fat". I hope he is right. It is squishy like fat still and I can wear my stuff that was slightly biggish for me no problem still. I am not even trying to wear some of the stuff that was fitting just right before. I think it will be a while before maternity clothes, but this in between stage is weird.

It's normal to have this "fat pooch" right?

I don't really have a defined bump yet- just sorta like my lower belly fat (mainly leftover from DD ) is pushed up and around my waist! Yuck! And FWIW, I'm not fitting into all maternity yet, just mixing in my "fat" clothes.

Yeah, mine definitely looks and feels more like fat than a baby bump. I guess it is normal. Feels weird!

It is normal I had it with Ds and have it now with this baby. I cannot stand this part of the pregnancy I alsways just feel fat and with this one I am heavy about 20pounds over weight but do not look like it (I carry weight well where I do not look over weight it is not wishful thinking) I went out and got a pair of yoga pants and my jeans and kakis are stretch so I am somewhat okay I do want something more cozy but I cannot afford to get anything else right now so I have to deal Dp bought me some yoga pants I have sweatshirts and other shrits that fit well. But if I could get some I would totally be in them! I really just want one or two more yoga pants/capris I am also waiting for some warm weather also it is so wacky right now here in WNY it is makeing me nutty!!!!

I have this little "humph" as well, it is waaaay higher than my uterus, so no baby there . It looks a bit like those Renaissance women with the little poking out belly My legs and hips are slimmer though, so actually a lot of my pants are too lose right now. It is really fascinating how a body changes, once a little baby is in there.

The only thing I could by is some new tops - as my breast expanded a lot of my tops just don't fit and are either way to short or way to tight

Well, I am pretty overweight and this is baby #3 so my body is doing some weird things. My upper abdomen is growing so much. The bottom pretty much looks the same with all of the fat down there, but the top is sticking out a lot. I told DH today that I think I am going to have to switch over because I am getting really uncomfortable, and tired of being cut in half. Strangely though because I am so round anyway my pants will not stay up, I think I need the waistband or they just roll down! I think it must be because of everything moving up to prepare room for the baby down below. My body must be getting the hang of this pregnancy thing!

Don't forget to check Goodwill's around you. We have a really nice one here that always has decent maternity clothes. And we also have a 2nd hand maternity (only) store that isn't too bad either (Once Upon a Mom or something like that). i wouldn't have any maternity clothes at all if they weren't 2nd hand. They are too expensive for the little time they are worn.

I am definately feeling fat and blah...but try to make do in athletic shorts, big tshirts (and right now since it is cold, athletic pants and sweatshirts) etc. And my whole belly is bloated too-- I think it's from all your insides moving up. I JUST LOVE looking fat!!! Can't wait til it looks more like a baby pouch and less like a fat blob!

Cellist....I have the same thing. I am at 7.5 weeks (this will be my first) and I really only have a "poochy" looking belly. Today my pants felt a bit tight at work, but very similar to how they felt during PMS times.

I haven't gained a pound (still weighing myself every day-- a habit I have had for years....lolol)-- but my belly looks like I have!!! lolol

Leah, at nearly 11 weeks, I am getting muffin top in some of my pants, but that's about it. Lovely!
