I had to cave yesterday and buy some maternity bottoms. I realized last week at church that that was going to be my last time wearing my regular dress pants.

I got some leggings to wear with my tunics and sweater dresses. I found them at Motherhood and they were only $20! I was pretty surprised, I thought they would be more.

I can still wear my jeans thank goodness but I feel a major blow in having to pack away all my cute dress pants. Boo.

I HATE maternity clothes so much!! At least these leggings are comfortable

Thank you, Meganpixel, for my awesome siggy!

I can't believe you made it so far without maternity pants. I caved and started wearing them back in November. The only problem is mine won't stay up without a belly band wrapped around them. I don't really understand that part. I thought they would stay put on their own.

All I've been wearing lately is dress pants or sweat pants. I havent even bought maternity jeans and dont plan on since I only have 2 months left. I got this far I might aswell keep going. I just use my Beband all the time now. I love leggings! Im gonna buy me a couple of them whenever I go out shopping next week. I have to by more shirts since my stomach has gotten huge!

I've been wearing maternity pants since September!! So consider yourself lucky that you made it this far! I cannot wait to wear normal clothes again. Maternity pants are not comfortable.

I'm going to have to go look at these leggings. I haven't made the switch to maternity either and I was hoping NOT to at all. But if they are comfortable then heck, why not? I could at least wear them around for the first few weeks afterwards or something!

Those leggings are great! They are even long enough for me (I'm 5'11") and are comfortable. I'm impressed you have been able to go this long without maternity pants. I'm really annoyed at my maternity jeans though, I'm constantly pulling them up even though I have a huge belly.

I hate maternity pants, too. Why do they make the belly black so that it shows through so many shirts? My jeans are the only ones that have a nude belly, and they just don't stay up.

Unfortunately, my legs are way too big for leggings

I too hate maternity pants! they're a PITA!!!! I cant find any comfortable ones. The ones that go under the belly are too tight on my tummy and pelvis, and the one that goes on my belly always fall down and become baggy.

Atleast your leggings were comfy.

I found inexpensive maternity pants at Kohls. They had belly bands that were more like the material tights or pantyhose are made of, rather than cotton. They stay up SO MUCH BETTER than the jeans I bought with the cotton bellybands. Just wish I had discovered them sooner.

My maternity jeans won't stay up either so I have to wear the belly band. I can still squeeze into one pair of my "fat jeans"...lol.

I've been wearing regular yoga pants for months now. They're really comfy and have a panel you can fold over or up over your belly. They're just champion brand like you get from hanes and they are really comfy and way less expensive than maternity stuff usually.

My maternity jeans fall down all the time too...soo annoying! I hate how maternity pants bunch up in the crotch area! I started wearing mine in January and I cant wait to be back to normal pants. If it wasnt for work I dont thinkI wouldve bought any!

Thank you MeganPixel for surprising me with this super cute siggy-you rock!

I LOVE my maternity pants! lol They are jeans fom motherhood.....they were like $35-so not too bad and I've been wearing them for the past 4 months or so! They have the long belly panel that goes all the way to my boobs lol but they are comfy! Plus I'm really short (5'0") and they have petite so they fit perfectly in the length! I only have one pair like this...I found another one almost exactly the same at the thrift store-but I have to roll the bottms like 3 times because they are so long!

I can't believe you made it this long in regular pants though! I can still wear regular shirts and dresses....but not pants!

maternity clothes since late Sept here and boy am I sick of them!

I hate how the panel shows through as a line under my shirt - it's not cute. And last week I actually fell down because my stupid pants were falling down and the cuff got caught on my shoe. So annoying and scary. Thankfully I didn't land on my belly, but I have a mega skinned knee.
