I am so jealous.  I gave away all my maternity clothes cause I was done having babies and planning on tying my tubes soon.  So I got nothing and no money to buy anything at the moment.  All my pants still fit (low waisted), but shirts are another story.

Ahh, the joy of maternity clothes! I haven't made that step yet, but it is going to happen soon. I am wearing the very last pair of non-maternity jeans that I can still button today. They were always quite loose before I got pregnant and they are getting mighty tight now. I can't wait to wear stretchy, gentle on the tummy, maternity wear. DH calls them my "comfort pants". lol!  What stinks (kinda) is I lost 65 lbs this year so all the really nice maternity stuff I bought when I was pregnant with DS would be gigantic on me now. We really don't have money to go out and buy more at the moment. I think it is time to hit the thrift store and look for some half price tags!

I pulled down all mine too!  I admit, I tried on the jeans and they were so super comfy -- but I couldn't do it mentally.  I forgot how many cute things I had, and I'm pg thru the same part of the year so *hopefully* i'll be able to wear most if not all of it again.  Once I started looking thru the clothes, I finally started to get excited for the belly!

I think I need to go to Old Navy.  I stopped by H&M to see what they had, and picked up some leggings.  They are still too big in the belly, but I can fold them down.  My old ones cut me across the middle very uncomfortably!  I also picked up two other things that I have to return...one sweater is super itchy and some pants fits really wonky...welcome to H&M!

That's where I am. I have listed all my large and x-large maternity pants for sale because I need mediums! I did pick up one perfect pair at a thrift store (while dropping off items to donate!).

Score! I wish my ON had a maternity section. It is a teeny tiny store with hardly anything in it. I should check out the larger one a few towns over.

I think I am going to have to try to sell mine to fund new ones in the proper size! Where did you list yours?

Craigslist and my local mom's forum. No love yet. I think it's too close to Christmas.

I'm in my size-up pants and looser shirts, but so far all I've got is a thicker waist- no real bump to speak of yet!
