So far I can still wear my regular clothes. I lost 20lbs over the summer, though, so I have lots of roomier jeans to grow into before I pull out the maternity

This is totally me. I'm about 8 weeks along, but I look to be at least 5 months! I've abandoned all jeans and wear only yoga pants and sweat pants. And I am very ready to pull down the box of maternity clothes (most of which are summery...). Guess I'll be spending some moolah on some clothes soon

Anyone interested in doing some swapping of maternity clothes? I have some stuff from last time that I was thinking of consigning (given to me & just not what I wanted, or wore it too much last time & NEVER WANT TO SEE IT AGAIN!) All of the stuff I have is in good shape...I could just take it over to the Trading Post, but I thought I'd see if anyone here was interested first. I am NOT really interested in selling - I'd rather swap, so PM me if you are interested, want pictures, etc.

Most of it is size S or M, but there is one gorgeous top that is L that just never fit me right.

I'm into the idea--except I don't have much for swapping! Unless you need something else...? We're about to move, so I have a ton of stuff hanging out and marked for garage saling. Let me know if there is anything else you might want/need...

Fortunately or unfortunately, depending on how you look at it, my body shape hasn't changed much - I've always carried my weight in my hips and lower abdomen. More than one person in years past has asked how far along I was! (This is my first pregnancy).

Still and all, I'm finding myself extremely unwilling to confine the pouch much. Slouchy pants and loose-fitting sweaters have been the norm for the past couple weeks and will probably continue to be for the forseeable future.

I've noticed that I can't do the thin elastic waistband anymore. It just cuts accross my belly and I feel like it is cutting off all the circulation. The fact that the pants are 1-2 sizes too big doesn't seem to matter...I need the wide elastic. I've actually cut the elastic out of a couple pair of pants.

They have at Old Navy, velour pants with a big wide smocked waistband. They look so comfortable. I need to call my local store and see if they have them or order them. They are something like $16.

Ugh. At only 8 weeks, and even though the scale says I'm losing weight, I have to walk around all day with my jeans undone. Luckily I do in-home daycare to a pair of young girls so they don't mind.

I've got a couple pairs of jeans, but as we've not told anyone yet about the pregnancy it might raise a few eyebrows if i show up one morning in maternity pants.

I need to get a bunch of really long t-shirts so I can undo my pants and no one will know.

OMG, I'm so glad to see this thread. I am wearing a maternity shirt today. I bought this expensive shirt when I was pg with DD and it didn't fit : . So I'm wearing it today! And I was thinking about buying some under the belly jeans this weekend.

I feel so bloated and my belly feels bigger. DH says I look beautiful, but I feel fat!
