I have some maternity pants that are pretty much normal pants with elastic waists, and those I've broken out. This time around I'm happy to have a lot more of the "middle stage" type clothes. My belly was still so big after giving birth to twins that I had to get some clothes to accomodate it. Bleh, even with clothes that work I hate this middle stage. Here's wishing us all cute little baby bumps soon! * Jaime

So in : with E and G...give the ultimate gift:

i have one pair of jeans that still fits fairly comfortably around the belly, a few yoga pants, and a lot of empire waist style tops so i haven't dipped into my maternity shirts yet. i know from last time that i was SO tired of wearing maternity clothes but had to wear them even after i delivered, so i'm in no rush this time. after we tell everyone at 12 weeks (2 more weeks to go!), i have a couple small tops i'm going to start wearing, because they're not going to fit for very long. lately, to go out, since only family members know we're expecting, i wear sweatshirts b/c i think people are getting suspicious!

My stretch jeans don't fit most days, but my new maternity pants are too big. I've had to wear them a few times and I have to walk around clutching the waistband. I'm trying to stick to dresses until things even out a bit.

Here's a good tip for you ladies, I got great deals today! I went to the JCPenney Outlet and found a bunch of maternity pants for $10.00 each! Oh and they carried s-4x.

Also Sears was clearancing out their s-3x sizes 30%-75% off. Burlington Coat Factory had some good options too size s-xl.

I'll be checking JCPenney Outlet regularly!!

I checked out their online page and I purchased this for only $19.99!

It's my first baby and I still fit in everything. I look bloated, like I did right before my periods. I lost some weight from lots of morning sickness and my rear end shrunk so that's given me a little more room for the bloating Part of me is eager to "show" and get into maternity clothes... part of me loves my jeans.

How'd you get it for $19.99? Mine says it's $79.99... which is A LOT more than you paid.

I didn't get it from the online store, just link'd it so you could see what I got. I purchased it at the local JcPenney outlet. sorry if that was confusing

Oh ok. Well, I'm getting most of my maternity clothes at second hand stores for mothers in the area. I did find out that there's this great place, it's the neighborhood pregnancy resource center. And basically, they do classes and stuff for low income women... no specific income levels though. They meet once a month with their "pickles and ice cream" group where they talk about their pregnancies and stuff... and it was just cool to see a bunch of other pregnant women like myself. Two of them were actually less far along than me. One was 10 weeks, and the other was something less than 10 weeks... not sure how far, i didn't hear exactly. They also give out "baby bucks" every time you come to a meeting or class. They gave us each 15 baby bucks. I mostly just need clothes right now, so that's what I shopped for. I found two pairs of pants that ACTUALLY FIT WELL. It was amazing!! I've had so much trouble finding pants with my super long legs. Ok, they're not super long... just longer than average. I also found a couple tops I really liked. So, yay! I still have 11 baby bucks left, plus i'll get more next time I come. I can also stop by any time and see if they have anything new. They always get new stuff in. It's all stuff that was donated, and some of it is really nice! They had clothes that I swear looked brand new. Pretty awesome.
