now that i'm 7 months pregnant it's getting more and more frustrating to find clothes i like to wear. slacks and a button down are fine - but all the shirts i've found have that empire waist! lesbian invisibility is one thing - but pregnant lesbian invisibility is another thing all together. i'm *this close* to shaving my head. any tips? getting dressed in the morning makes me want to cry.

whoabethy, your question really piqued my interest! i hadn't really thought about it... i mean, i have thought about it, but never really thought of a solution yet. i did a quick yahoo seach and this is what i found. maybe not really what you are looking for but perhaps just a start to what you could find.

good luck!

ps. i also just read that old navy has a decent (not as girly) maternity selection.

Oh that's a bummer that you are feeling invisible. I didn't even think about that happening.

How about piercing your eyebrow?

*hugs*

Shave your head! I love shaved heads!

Wait, that probably wasn't the answer you wanted, was it?

Shaved heads are hot!

But yes, I've also heard Old Navy is the place to go for less super-femmy maternity clothes.

2happymamas -- I LOVE that picture! Two happy mamas indeed, so sweet. Thanks for sharing.

OP: pregnant lesbians are the coolest - hope you find clothes that you feel good in, because you deserve it.

One other thought, what about wearing more non-maternity clothing to maintain your sense of fashion? I found lots of things at the stores I liked that were not maternity but with things like the Belly Hugger or long maternity tanks, I could get away with stretching non-maternity shirts over the belly or wearing non-maternity skirts or pants low. I liked this better also because I could wear these things after without feeling like I was in maternity shirts. A couple of cool t-shirts in bigger sizes could go a long way.

Congrats.

I have scoured the thrift stores. My favorite combo right now is maternity jeans with a big baggy dress shirts. Of course then you find that you look butch as hell but people just think you have a beer gut! and I want people to know I'm pregnant damn it!! Guess thats why I touch my belly so much...
