6 weeks ago, I reached my 'full term' size with my previous 2 single-baby-pregnancies. Since then, finding things to wear has been getting more and more challenging! I'm at 150% of my pre-preg weight, and it does seem to (fortunately!) be all belly, which is nice, but hard to dress!


I hate to buy more at this point, as it won't be needed long, but I also hate to have that band of belly exposed where pant & shirt don't quite meet! It was only 8*C this morning, so not warm enough for baring much skin outside anyway.

This is so hard. I had similar problems. Do go out and find one or two things you can wear. It seems silly, but you need *something*. And you'll feel better if you don't feel undressed.

I went on a big thrift shopping expedition at about that point in my pregnancy too.  Empire waist dresses or tunics over leggings or yoga pants was my solution.  I had a pair of xl maternity leggings and a non-maternity pair of xl yoga pants that fit up to the end, and I found a couple pairs of XXL or XXXL non-maternity elastic waisted slacks at the thrift store for just around the house.

I'm having that problem too-I have two shirts and maybe 2 pairs of pants and a skirt left. And it's so hot out here already! I have a lovely trail of veins popping out of my right leg I keep in a sleeve, so that makes me want to cover up as much as I can, but so uncomfortable! I like the old navy scrunchy sided shirts-I think I got them for about $8. I still have seven weeks to go!
