I'm in the same boat. My jeans are just a bit too tight, and I refuse to wear maternity. I'm getting by with my extensive flowy skirt collection, all with an elastic waistband or wrap skirts. Also a nursing camisole with a bright colored tank top over it.

Same boat here, too. Should we be worried that altogether we're going to sink the boat? Just kidding. That was in poor taste.
I finally sucked it up and bought three relatively forgiving long skirts from target.com. They have the yoga band waist which for me is huge. I hate bending over and feeling my pants slip down in the back, and with a less pronounced waist that has been a problem lately. These skirts are comfy and hopefully will be flexible enough to be worn once (not if) I drop a size or two.
But then today I preferred to wear yesterday's nursing tank top and stay in my pajama pants all day. I threw a nicer cardigan over it all and pretended I was fancy. If you wear a necklace then it's fancy. Just don't look at the spit up that is chronically on my shoulder.
I really want to do some strength training but I'm finding it really hard to get motivated. It is easy to follow c25k. The plan is there, you just do it. I need something similar for strength. Like a couch to five dead hang pull ups...or couch to handstand pushup. Or something...
How is everyone doing? I start week 8 of C25K tomorrow. It really is amazing that I can run for 25 minutes straight. I've never done that. So far I have lost about 5 lbs. by doing C25K, some resistance training and limiting junk grains and sugars. I have about 5 more to go for pre-preg but was about 10 over to begin with. So 15 more to still lose in all. I will be happy if I can just lose the 5 soon and then the rest after I wean. But numbers on the scale aside, I am feeling stronger and have more energy and am loving that!! I hope the same for all of you!
I'm consciously doing a lot of squatting (with 16 wiggly pounds on my back!), and lunging. I wish I was motivated to do more resistance training but canning our gardens veggies is much more appealing whenever I have a free moment.
How's everyone else?
