I don't really do maternity. I have 2 pairs of maternity jeans and two pairs of maternity slacks, and three maternity shirts. Of those items, I've only bought one pair of maternity slacks and my mom the rest because she insists I need maternity stuff. Um... no.
Instead, I just buy things a size larger (so I can wear them belted afterwards), wear form fitting stuff, wear pre-pregnancy pants with fly open, or wear regular leggings. I'm just going to wear regular cardigans and sweaters open, and layers for warmth. I may get a maternity coat/jacket if I can find one at a consignment store or on eBay. None of my coats/jackets will close over my belly and it can get really cold here at times.
Blessed mommy to three beautiful children.
I seriously don't know how you guys can just wear bigger clothes? No way would bigger stuff fit me!! I'm a small girl to begin with and I guess I just like my stuff to be form fitting! I ordered some new clothes from oldnavy just the other day so hopefully it will fit. I ordered a pair of jeans which I desperately need! And a few shirts. I plan on wearing fitted t shirt like things with cardigans so I can wear the cardigans again. I also LOVE my leggings with tunic style shirts...soooo sooo comfy!
Oh and for the person who asked if you are more hot recently...YES!!! I'm totally freezing DH out at home! I'm loving this cooler weather!
Thank you Julka for my beautifully, perfect siggy!!
Whatever I can find in my closet that fits over my belly. I do need to pick up a few more shirts. I figured I would purchase some summer tops with fall colors in them and put a cardigan on top to save money.
i have three pairs of regular work pants that will probably last through the rest of this pregnancy I have a few capris that are maternity but i dont think it will be capri weather much longer. I always wore a lot of empire waist tops so i have a lot to wear on top.
Ugh yes i am definitely feeling extra hot!!! I have the air on 67 (and in this small cubicle of a room it gets pretty cold) and at night i sleep with no covers. Poor DH asked me on a few different occasions to raise the temp cuz he was cold!
I have one pair of jeans, i'd like an other though. And i have three pairs of cargo-type pants that can be worn long or rolled up to capris. They are light so i've been wearing them folded up for now. I'll probably be able to use some of my long sleeve shirts and light sweaters that i have up in NY. I don't need them yet so i can wait till we move everything down from up there in the coming weeks.
I'm ok for fall/winter since I was pregnant with DD over winter (she was due in June so I started wearing mat stuff around Christmas/Jan). It was summer I had a problem with LOL I had no shorts/capris that would fit me so had to get some cooler/lighter pants (and shirts though I could have probably gotten away with with the short sleeved shirts I had). I don't like buying bigger stuff either Gwen. Mostly b/c I am a bit bigger and I feel like that makes me look huge! I like the more fitted stuff since it showcases my belly (and really it's the only time a big belly is acceptable lol)
