I can't sleep in night gowns or pants so I typically wear shorts/pants & a tank top in the evening, then just sleep in the tank top. However, none of my pj shorts are fitting & it just seems silly to spend money on maternity pj's, especially with only 8 weeks left. I need something though...

undies and a tank top!

I tend to sleep in an sports-type bra (actually made for pregnancy), a tank top and underwear. Sometimes I wear a lightweight stretch cotton nightgown that has elastic under the bust. It's hard to get comfy no matter what I wear, though!

Pajamas? I'm a nakey girl. And my boobs haven't been nearly as sore this time around, so I haven't needed to sleep in a nursing bra like last time.

Around the house in the evening it's loose gaucho roll top pants or a tennis skirt or something like that with a t-shirt or a long tank.

I have some stretchy tanks and my boy shorts undies for pjs since nothing else really fits and I don't want to buy anything else this late in the game, lol.

Lately, because of the heat and my growing dumplin', I've been sleeping in any pj bottoms I can still fit into (sometimes I borrow dh's.) and t-shirts/tanks or just in my underoos.

I gave in and bought 2 pairs of sweat pant style shorts fromt he maternity section at JC penney. They were like $12, but I had a $10 coupon so it wasnt so bad. They go to just above the knee. I usually change into them around ds's bedtime and hang out in the house in them. They are really comfortable. i top them with a short nightgown, or a tanktop or tee.

Yup, too small tank top or tshirt and undies here. I have a silky kind of nightgown that isn't maternity but is big enough to accommodate my belly that I like because it makes it easy to roll over. In the evening I wear some gouchos and any shirt I happen to have that fits.

You're wearing pajamas? It's undies for me! It's waaaay too hot here to bother with extra layers.

A couple of years ago when I was donating blood, the Red Cross was giving away free t-shirts. They only had XXL sizes left, and I'm a small.... so, they're now preggie jammies, along with usually my 3rd pair of underwear for the day

I'm wearing DH's boxers and any large t-shirts that will fit. That's pretty much what I wear non-pregnant, except I wear my own smaller boxers bought for sleeping. Sometimes I sleep in the boxers and a sports bra.

I sleep nekked on top, with panties on bottom...I second the "usually 3rd pair of the day" sentiment...can't sleep with anything on. The only time I do, is when we have company or my husband is out of town-don't know why I have to when he's gone, but I sleep in a tank top and PJ shorts..but he hasn't been gone this time since I've been big, so...

After taking my shower at night, I put on a big (cool lightweight) robe with a tie..it fits sort of catty wampus, but hey..it works.

Tank top and undies. I'm usually a PJ wearer but it's hot here and with 7 pillows around me I can't stand any extra layers. Plus, I don't think I could find PJ's that fit at this point even if I tried.
MommaKitten21's Avatar MommaKitten21 01:52 AM 06-20-2010
I sleep in my birthday suit!!!

DH is sooo embarrassed by me because it is sooo hot that I am just wearing my maternity jeans (with the nylon band rolled down so my butt crack sometimes pokes out ) and just a sports bra.... and then I go outside (we live on a fairly busy college street!) and water the flowers, or do whatever I feel like doing haha!!

It's not even hot here, but I'M hot all the time. So I'm opting for just undies as well.

I bought a couple 6 packs of Hanes at Target (the wedgie-free kind) and am in love. Seriously, they are amazing. Tons of butt space! And my butt grows it's own baby during pregnancy, so I'm not talking a small amount of fabric here. I got the hipsters and they tuck just fine under the belly in the front and stay nice and in place in the back.

I must be the only one, but undies are the first thing to go! I was sleeping in an XL tee, but that has gotten a bit tight. So I caved and bought a maternity sleeveless nightgown this weekend. It also can be a nursing gown since it's cut for pull aside boob access. I'm so much happier now. If we had blinds all over the house, I would sleep naked, but lately I'm raiding the fridge at 2 am, and I really don't want to give any night owl neighbors a show.
