My maternity jeans are actually super comfy, but I'm sick and tired of having to pull them (and my undies) up every 5 minutes!
that is so me! I sit in comfy shorts (brrrr...it's cold in New England tho!) inside and my fleece Old Navy pj pants. I love those!
When I'm out it's the maternity jeans that feel the best...partly b/c they were so huge during the whole pregnancy. The other pants I wore that were my fav the whole pregnancy are now so tight on my lower belly. ouch! can't stand them anymore.
I hear ya tho..I would love to wear some normal clothes...so close to it! so close....
I meant to buy a nightgown this time around just to test the comfort of one. Don't they get all tangled up around you when you sleep? It's already difficult to rollover as it is! lol

I'm pretty much wearing regular clothes. :
Though they're *really big* regular clothes. I have two big pairs of elastic waistband shorts which are near their limits, and several pears of gap stretchy pants that are near their limits. LOL.
For sleep I have these fleece pants and tank tops and it seems they still fit. Yes, stretched to the max, but they FIT!
I wear bikini underpants, the same I wear before being pregnant. I don't like the feel of things on my belly.
DH has also loaned me some of his XL shirts. Yes, I do have some maternity pants, but they don't feel good. Go figure. They're jeans, and where they are cut they seem to cut into my belly. I do have some maternity tops. Haven't worn them so much though.

At least I have a lot of tops because I still have a bunch of big shirts & sweaters left over from the 80's/90's. I knew those would come in handy someday! So they look a little dated... at least I'm not naked.

Nine months ago I was putting on makeup and wearing cute outfits and shoes just to go to class, living in sweats and being too tired/oily to wear makeup has been killing me!

JSMa, I hear ya, mama!
I don't wear a bra...haven't for a while but feel so sad that I will have to any day now to keep milk from leaking down my belly and through my shirt. I loathe bras! Burn 'em all! I do have a very relaxed and not forming one that I wore when nursing my last 3 kids...so I'm breaking it out until I can put it away again when the leaking finally stops in a few years

I had Zephan two weeks ago and I am back in normal clothes. I went out this weekend and bought a pair of jeans and sweater to wear to holiday parties. Not quite the same size I wear normally, but I feel good about how I look. My husband thinks I look hot.
Which is nice, because my 2 year old still kisses the "baby" in my tummy and my 4 year old keeps telling me my belly is "a little big"...
I bought far less maternity this time around just because most of it is so ugly and unflattering!! I too mainly bought ginormous regular clothes. At least they'll make me look less pregnant than maternity postpartum. And I won't have to stare down Motherhood tags once the baby is here.
