ok, not funny, who else is about ready for maternity clothes? - Page 2

I LOVE my yoga pants that I got at Victoria Secret (isn't that weird that they had them?)
Cool,

Funny, cause all of my clothes that are too fitting just do not seem that comfy anymore even though they still fit, it's like i just want loose flowing clothes......yoga pants and those tanks w/ the bras built in seem like an excellent wardrobe for me! In fact, I still wear one of those that I got at Motherhood 3 yrs ago for bed and around the house - an excellent investment.

Off to do some online shopping :LOL

Well, that would be me....today. I have a meeting (causal) this evening and know I can't get into my jeans which leaves me with one option - my maternity jeans (since it went from summer to winter overnight). I am 6 weeks, 5 days adn this will be my 4th baby (8th or so pregnancy) so I guess I should be glad I lasted this long, huh? Actually I am excited to get into my comfy maternity clothes and I actually have a much better mat. wardrobe than regular...scary!

Have you guys seen these?

I am getting one. I was just thinking I need a band so I can just wear my jeans unbuttoned. Someone else pointed it out to me.

Surprisingly I am not showing at all. I did early with my others, mostly swelling and water weight. But now you wouldn't even know! Actually, I am wearing a pair of jeans today that are a size 2, and I told my DH to get a good look. I have been wearing a 2 again for about two weeks...so he won't get much time to appreciate it! I JUST lost the last 5 baby pounds from my last pregnancy....

Oh - how NEAT! That'd almost work for me since my tops are getting too short...the girls are literally busting out already...hence shortening the length of my "cute" tops.

I was already going up a size in my jeans (unfortunately), but since I already bought the next size up, hopefully I can wear them longer... I already look like I'm 4mos, even though I'm ~7wks w/#2 (but that was all due to a relatively inactive summer).

Even though I am growing and the "fat clothes" I bought that were very roomy two weeks ago now fill out in the waist. I have abodondened the regualr jeans and I am styng w maternity pants and hoping I do not have to go to the shirts for a while.

But today after my appt, I will then pull out the tub of maternity clothes.

I read somewhere that my uterus is the size of a tangerine right now and lets face it: there isn't room for me AND a tangerine in my normal pants, so "fat pants" it is

I did pull out and am in the process of washing my maternity clothes (that I honestly thought I might never see again, so it was a happy moment for me) but I don't think I really need them just yet. Going the next size up in pants seems to be covering my bloated belly for now. Maybe after I meet with the midwives at the birth center next week?

I don't want to be a silly goose and rush into my maternity clothes before I need them, but wow! It feels really great to be talking about needing them!

I think I'm only around 4 weeks, but I'm definitely not fitting in my pants already.
I grow massive babies and I'm very petite, so it doesn't take much.

The Bellaband looks like something I'm going to need. I haven't dragged the whole box of maternity clothes out yet, but I can hardly sit down in my jeans anymore. My boobs have gotten a little bigger over the past two days, but still nowhere near what they were a couple months ago before Zion cut back a little on nursing. So I'm good with clothes there. If I don't suck it in... I look as pregnant as a friend of mine on her first at nearly 8 months...

I got a pair of yoga pants at Old Navy, & they are soooooo comfy. I want to wear them every day!

I'm still in all my regular stuff but usually change into sweats by dinner time & I have the same problem as you Mary -- the majority of my maternity stuff is for cold weather!! At least I'll have a lot of variety when I start showing, but I will defintely need to get some spring & summer stuff.\

So far I can still wear my regular clothes. I lost 20lbs over the summer, though, so I have lots of roomier jeans to grow into before I pull out the maternity

This is totally me. I'm about 8 weeks along, but I look to be at least 5 months! I've abandoned all jeans and wear only yoga pants and sweat pants. And I am very ready to pull down the box of maternity clothes (most of which are summery...). Guess I'll be spending some moolah on some clothes soon

Anyone interested in doing some swapping of maternity clothes? I have some stuff from last time that I was thinking of consigning (given to me & just not what I wanted, or wore it too much last time & NEVER WANT TO SEE IT AGAIN!) All of the stuff I have is in good shape...I could just take it over to the Trading Post, but I thought I'd see if anyone here was interested first. I am NOT really interested in selling - I'd rather swap, so PM me if you are interested, want pictures, etc.

Most of it is size S or M, but there is one gorgeous top that is L that just never fit me right.

I'm into the idea--except I don't have much for swapping! Unless you need something else...? We're about to move, so I have a ton of stuff hanging out and marked for garage saling. Let me know if there is anything else you might want/need...

My pouch was already there!

Fortunately or unfortunately, depending on how you look at it, my body shape hasn't changed much - I've always carried my weight in my hips and lower abdomen. More than one person in years past has asked how far along I was! (This is my first pregnancy).

Still and all, I'm finding myself extremely unwilling to confine the pouch much. Slouchy pants and loose-fitting sweaters have been the norm for the past couple weeks and will probably continue to be for the forseeable future.

I've noticed that I can't do the thin elastic waistband anymore. It just cuts accross my belly and I feel like it is cutting off all the circulation. The fact that the pants are 1-2 sizes too big doesn't seem to matter...I need the wide elastic. I've actually cut the elastic out of a couple pair of pants.

They have at Old Navy, velour pants with a big wide smocked waistband. They look so comfortable. I need to call my local store and see if they have them or order them. They are something like $16.

Ugh. At only 8 weeks, and even though the scale says I'm losing weight, I have to walk around all day with my jeans undone. Luckily I do in-home daycare to a pair of young girls so they don't mind.

I've got a couple pairs of jeans, but as we've not told anyone yet about the pregnancy it might raise a few eyebrows if i show up one morning in maternity pants.

I need to get a bunch of really long t-shirts so I can undo my pants and no one will know.

OMG, I'm so glad to see this thread. I am wearing a maternity shirt today. I bought this expensive shirt when I was pg with DD and it didn't fit : . So I'm wearing it today! And I was thinking about buying some under the belly jeans this weekend.

I feel so bloated and my belly feels bigger. DH says I look beautiful, but I feel fat!
