So I finally broke down this weekend and purchased some materunity clothes. I really didn't want to because I can still fit all my prepregnancy clothes but heres the problem. Most of my pants are too big. I have about 3 pairs of jeans that I love but they are all falling off of me now. I know that seems weird. But see I wear my pants below my waist to its below my baby bump. And I am assuming since I have lost weight instead of gain weight yet that they are just two big. So instead of buying normal size clothes that probably won't fit me after I have the baby I broke down and bought materunity pants.
Any body else have a problem like this or are they having a hard time wanting to wear materunity clothes?? Thats my problem I just don't really want to wear them yet.
Thanks to auntieof3 for the wonderfull and beautifull siggy!!
I still have 2 pair of jeans I can wear that are non-maternity and I wear them as much as possible I have to wear maternity shirts though, UNLESS it's my hoodies... and when I wear those, I can still hide my belly. I'm certain it's because I'm carrying high this time and can't seem to gain weight.
Not much of a choice here with my little basketball belly. I know you didn't ask, but I highly suggest motherhood maternity in Macy's. It really wasn't that pricey compared to old navy, target, and kohl's maternity, and the stuff fits sooooo much better and doesn't look like maternity stuff style wise (well some did, but they had a wide selection of styles). In particular got some cute capris that are super comfy.
PS. I notice you live in Olathe... I used to live in Lenexa prior to Rhode Island (so about 5 years ago and still have family there). Haha its kinda fun to see someone on here from there... I'm a dork.

I broke down and bought some tank tops from Motherhood Maternity last week. My shirts just aren't long enough anymore. I bought a pair of pants with the secret belly panel but I don't like them. I don't have a big enough belly to wear them yet. I'm still just wearing my comfy pants that sit on my hips and will continue to do so until I can't anymore.
I can still wear my pre pregnancy shorts and pants (well, one size up because my butt grew! LOL), but it's just now getting to where when I sit in them, the rim of the pants dig into my uterus (LOL), and that HURTS....so I'm in maternity now Not because I "have" to, but because it's just more comfy and I give in to comfort My bump still isn't where I'm showing all that much yet though. I've only had one regular client ask me if I'm expecting and she was scared to ask. NOONE else has noticed! LOL
I had one client ask me today if we were thinking about having any more yet....lol....uh, yeah...we're thinking about it
Teresa - the bella band is a piece of fabric that helps hold pants up when you wear unbuttoned or when maternity pants are still too big. Here's the link to the one I bought, but you can buy at Target, Motherhood Maternity, etc.
I have the same issue with my pants and shorts. Stuff I wore last summer is now too big. My pants and shorts fall around my ankles. I've worn maternity shorts and stuff recently because they actually fit better by hugging my belly. I've lost weight too so that's why.
