Funny you should say. It's been exactly 6 weeks and today is my first day back at work and I almost put on some of my smaller maternity pants. I refused though. Silly, but I just didn't want to wear maternity pants back to work.<br>
I can fit my regular jeans, but not comfortably, so I'm wearing stretchy type pants for the time being.
don't hate me, but... not me.<br><br>
i was in my pre maternity pants about 1 week PP, and that was only because i was mostly in pjs and had lots of stitches that i didn't want to have stiffer fabrics against. although i did wear a pair of maternity jeans for a while just because i really liked the cut of them.<br><br>
i never even bought any maternity shirts, although it was nice to be able to wear some of the slimmer-fitting sweaters i'd put away to avoid stretching them.
I feel like a mess. I don't have too many clothes to begin with. I'm not looking forward to going back to work because I have nothing that fits. And because I'm not working I have no $ to buy anything new. <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/redface.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="Embarrassment">
I was in pre-pregnancy clothes when I left the hospital. I did have a c-section (vertical incision), so they were a bit rough on my incision, but overall okay. I'm actually about 35 pounds below where I was before I got pregnant so I've been able to pull out some of my older clothes that didn't fit, it's been great. As a note, though, I am a fluffier mama so that's probably why it was so much easier for me to fit into my pre-pregnancy clothes!
I'm still wearing some maternity pants, but it's mostly b/c i don't really like my non-maternity wardrobe (it's getting pretty ratty). I swear the hip binding made a huge difference in getting into my pre-preg clothes. My hips barely fit in my maternity clothes right after giving birth, b/c they had spread so much, but after binding for a week, I was wearing my pre-preg pants. Now the extra belly skin... that's another story...
i am so glad to say NO. haha.<br><br>
i am officially down over 30lbs in 8 weeks!<br>
things definitely do not fit the same, and I still have at least about 20lbs to go in weight loss till I am happy with where I am, but it is very nice to be able to wear my pre-pregnancy jeans. even if they are tight!
I have some denim shorts that were big before pregnancy, so I am able to wear those (and it is warm enough to do so!). Otherwise, I'd still be in mat jeans and a Bella band, because my regular jeans are uncomfortable on my belly.
I still wear my pre-pregnancy jeans. Why? Because I'm too lazy to go find my non-pregnancy jean in our storage unit. <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/lol.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="lol"> I'm wearing yoga pants, and skirts mostly.
The only reason why I'm not wearing maternity clothes is because I packed them away so I wouldn't wear them. LOL<br><br>
I have a size bigger clothes from my last two pregnancies, which I have been wearing. (or at least the ones I fit into) All my shirts fit me funny and are too short and tight though.<br><br>
I tried to go shopping but failed miserably finding clothes that camoflage the wide waist and tummy. Plus I'm still hoping my hips shrink more (they'd better!!)
