my maternity clothes are loose (i've lost 30 of 55 lbs since birth), but my regular clothes are TOO small. i hate to buy more clothes! i wish i could go to the gym, but i haven't left my babe for any length of time yet, feeding still on demand. and the gym is a 30 minute drive each way, plus workout time...what am i saying? i'm too tired to work out anyway!!  *ugh*

I'm in the same boat even though I'm 1lb BELOW my pre-preg weight.  My pre-preg clothes don't fit yet but maternity clothes are big.  My only saving grace are the scoop-neck & v-neck tees i bought at Motherhood at the end of smmer.  They look like non-maternity but stretch enough for nursing that they dont stretch out with repeatedly pulling them up.

Get a belly band. Then, your pre-pregnancy pants will fit. You could probably hit up a thrift store to buy a pair or 2 of inexpensive jeans and a shirt or 2.

i'm in my 1st trimester things - under-belly jeans are ok now. my pre-preggo jeans don't even pull up over my thighs! (i gain a booty during my pregnancies) i have an appointment to consign most of my maternity clothes tomorrow but can't let go of all of the bottoms yet.

 

i am counting on my michael jackson Wii game to help me bridge that gap! ;)

I'm in the same boat. I've lost half my pg weight. My maternity pants are getting pretty loose now but my nursing tank helps hold them up. I needed a few new outfits anyway.

I'm sick of nursing tanks!  I haven't found any affordable nursing clothing :-(  I'm wearing nursing tanks from Target and pajama pants all.the.time.  If we leave the house I put on jeans and a hoodie.  BORING.

I coughed up the money for glamourmom tank tops.  I figure it is still cheaper than formula wink1.gif  I wear those with low-rise maternity pants or one of my wrap skirts.  Looking forward to when I can wear a cute zippy jacket or button down sweater with those again...I like my tops form fitting so of course none of my pre pregnancy tops fit!

 

I am 10 pounds from pre pregnancy weight...and that does not appear to be "melting" off so I probably need to cut back on sweets.

Definitely invest in nursing tanks.  Especially if you are going to have more kids.  I still have some from DS1 and now I got more for Christmas.  I figure I will be nursing for 3 more years and my Bravado tanks rock.  In the winter, I wear them under a shirt or sweater so I don't have to buy nursing tops or have an exposed belly.  Belly bands work for that as well.
