I went to Old Navy expecting to find "the" stash for all my maternity clothes needs. But I found it A. Too expensive, and B. Bad materials. I bought some "low-riders" on sale at a shop near where I live, and they fit my fine. They're the stretchy velour pants that I mentioned in my first post. I think that a lot of the maternity clothes that they sell in those shops are designed for women who work at an office while they are pregnant. Most of the materials are 100% polyester so that you don't have to iron them all the time, like you would with cotton. I prefer cotton.
I guess I am lucky in the fact that I'm fairly tall, (5'10"), so the baby has more room to move up instead of *out*.
I just really need to get some good maternity underwear, though. I went to thyme, to looking for good maternity underwear, and the crotch was soooo small. I don't think it could hold half of one sneeze. KWIM? I should try getting some large underwear from mall-wart (my take on wal-mart), like a previous poster had mentioned doing. Last time I was pregnant, I ended up cutting half of my underwear (the really cheapo fruit of the loom kind), just so I'd be comfortable in them. I was really poor then too, obviously.
