So, I don't fit in my regular clothes anymore, most of then anyway, so today I thought I'll go and search for maternity clothes. I went to a couple of places to find a pair of shorts, you would think that would be a an easy thing to do. Well. both places I went to I picked up the smallest size they have (I'm a tiny person) they were too big. So, do they even make clothes for small pg women??? I guess I'm going to have to go to the regular mall and find a maternity story there. I'm about to cry.....Nothing fits anymore.
Thanks for letting me vent.
Have you thought about a bella band or using a rubber band with your regular pants for now. They will give you some more room in your regular clothes till maturnity ones fit better. I got my bella band at Motherhood Maturnity and it wasnt that exspensive.
Do you have a Target near by? They usually have a good selecting and carry XS

On 1/31/12 at exactly 16 weeks pregnant Noah came too soon. He was our 7th loss
If you would like to see pictures of my sweet (but tiny) boy they can be viewed at www.caringbridge.org/visit/noahdarrohn they aren't the easiest pictures to look at but I am willing to share them with anyone who would like to see them <3
I wore my super low rise jeans all the way to the end (and I gained 40 lbs). Once it was hard to button them I would use the rubberband trick. I definitely want to get a bella band for this time around.
As for good XS clothes, try Old Navy. Not all stores carry maternity but they have GREAT selections!
Thanks for the great suggestions. Target was the first place I went and got nothing, everything was too big. Old Navy had no maternity clothes, but the only close to my house it's an outlet, so I guess that's why. I don't know if I have a Motherhood Maternity anywhere near by, but I'll check. I tried looking for those bella bands and I can't find them anywhere, but I'm pretty sure I was looking in all the wrong places, I'll check in Motherhood Maternity sometime this weekend (just checked I do have one down the street ).
I knew I could count on you for suggestions, I'll let you know how it goes.
Patty, im tiny too. I know Ross has AWSOME things and they are SOOOOOOOOO cheap, and they fit me. Also... motherhood and old navy have all online stuff too, so if you can find one or two things you like in the store that you can try on to make sure they fit, youll have the sizes you need then you can order online hunny
old navy has xs (and even in longs!). i don't know what i would have worn if i didn't buy old navy for this pregnancy. and i bought some of it online. they have a great return policy for in case you get something and it doesn't fit right- you can just ship it right back.
You live in Carlsbad right? At the outlet mall there is a motherhood maternity store. You may want to check it out. They usually have really great prices on the clearnace stuff. Swing by you may find something...and there are tons of little kids clothing stores as well. Good luck in your search!
Thank you all for your suggestions, here is how it went. I went to Old Navy, they have no maternity clothes, so that was a bust. I might try buying stuff online, sometimes they have better deals either way. Target, could not find anything on a XS, so I left, but then on Sunday when we went to target for an unrelated item, i notice that they had plenty of XS stuff, so I guess I just went to the wrong Target. Motherhood, I did go there, everything was still a bit too big, so I ended up getting those bella bands instead. I'm going to wait a couple of month before going back to the store to look for Maternity clothes, maybe by them the clothes will fit.
