You'd think that investing in a maternity wardrobe would buy you clothes that fit throughout pregnancy. Why are maternity clothes designed for someone perpetually 5 months along? I can't wear ANYTHING at this point. I am in nightgowns at home, and if I go out I have to wear DH's t-shirts if I want my belly covered. It hangs out the bottom of all my maternity tops and over the tops of my maternity pants- which fall down anyway. I am : that I own $500 worth of maternity clothes and I'm wearing dh's t-shirts!!! (even my maternity tees are too short! what's with that?)

Sorry to rant. I am running out of patince with this pregnancy.

Just your typical non-theistic, liberal, blended family.

Thank you, Mothering, for the past twelve years of support and community. I look forward to many more.

I have the same problem with almost all my maternity shirts, some even quit fitting at 7 monthes! Pants are either to tight or falling off all the time. I just try to wear a long jacket, zipped up when I go to the store. It's kindof embarrassing to have my stomach hanging out or be pulling up my pants all the time!

I only had one pair of pants that fit for the last 8 weeks or so. And only one warm sweater that came close to covering my belly (not maternity, just a BIG sweater), so I wore the exact same outfit everyday (pants that fit and the sweater).

The nice thing about it, though, is that even though I haven't attempted to wear any pre-pregnancy clothes yet (I'm guessing that would be depressing), I feel like I have SO many options just because I can wear all my other maternity clothes again! So, there is an upside to outgrowing maternity clothes before the end of pregnancy!

Your babies will come out SOON!


Mindfully mothering SIX kids (ages 6, 7, 8, 10, 12 & 12) in a small house with a lot of love.
