But with two babies in there, I am rapidly outgrowing all my maternity bottoms. Tops are OK, but the bottoms aren't working for me. The only two things that don't make me want to strip and run naked down the street-- and trust me, NO ONE wants that-- are a couple skirts I have with "yoga bands" at the waist and these horrible ugly knit pants with elastic waistbands that I have had since my first pregnancy 11 years ago. Unfortunately, I only have a few pair of these. One black pair has a giant runner down the butt and is no longer suitable to wear outside and another pair are actually capris. Anyone know where I can get some more? I can't find them anywhere.
I don't know these are exactly the same...I think mine are "merona" but they are similar
I like that the waist band can roll down or come up to my armpits for more comfort. Also, I noticed at the bottom of the description, free shipping on $50, and 20% off if you spend $75.
Do you want belly coverage too, or could you buy regular womens pants that sit really low, below baby bump?
Target does have some nice pants on their clearance racks right now, around here, at least.
I'm not nearly as blooming pregnant as you, and I'm quite fond of my knit pants. They're the only ones that stay put and are comfortable.
Troll? Here's me...
Things that sit below my belly really really bother me for some reason. I like being able to pull the pants up under my boobs.
I do, too. It's taken me 2 pregnancies to figure out why, lol. It's more secure, holds everything in better. After 5 pregnancies, I need more support. I'm sure with twins you probably feel the same.
As for ebay... don't look there, seriously. The clothes ALL suck or are overpriced. Many of the things I saw (that weren't xs.. there's lots of cute mat clothes in xs, but who fits in those??) were very outdated.
I love my yoga pants with the roll down waistband, they fit before/during/after! I got mine at Wal*Mart for $10/pr but that was before this pregnancy. Not sure if they still sell them or not. My last pregnancy the two pairs of yoga pants I had lasted me longer than the expensive maternity clothes I bought.
Nic, loving mama to 5 with a SURPRISE 6th on the way.
But the two that I have are very similar to yoga pants, like Demeter mentioned. Very stretchy, soft light jersey material. I think mine are from old navy. And they really do work nicely post partum too.

With my first pregnancy, I had issues with my maternity shirts becoming too short towards the end and I only had one bub in there!
good luck to you!

I bought my maternity pants and shirts online from formultiples.com. They are specially designed for mom's with multiples. They were perfect. They were all I wore during my recent twin pregnancy.
Hope this helps.
