I have been scouting out different sites, and ebay trying to get an idea of what kind of clothes are available, and price points as well. I was thinking of having enough clothes for a 2-week work rotation (10 outfits for work). And some cutesy clothes for when I am not working. I have a strict dress code at work, which also makes things difficult. How did you calculate how many outfits to buy?
Sorry I can't help you there. I have to wear scrubs so I just get the next size up
Do you have a kid to kid near you. Mine resells maternity clothes and the store is very picky what they buy. Also check out JCPennys. I bought some really nice grey slacks for $8 the other day. They had alot of winter clothes in that price range.
I actually went to our motherhood maternity outlet and picked up all my clothes there. My work wardrobe just has to be nice pants and a nice shirt so it's not too strict. And thankfully the shirts can be used as nice evening/weekend wear too. I love my maternity wardrobe though and cant wait to get back into my clothes lol
I did 5 work outfits so every week I wore the same outfit on the same day. I didn't want to invest more than that for maternity clothes. For the weekends I just bought large sweatshirts/yoga pants. My other two pregnancies I was due in jan and then feb 28 so by the time we get bigger the sweatshirt thing worked out. I got my clothes at kohls and some at old navy.
With it being summer (if you aren't opposed to used clothes) check out garage sales. I don't work outside the home, but I have seen a lot of very nice dressy/work clothes for very cheap at garage and yard sales.
I wear scrubs too but I do have meetings that I need to dress professionally for. I bought two pairs of maternity dress pants from Motherhood Maternity but never needed to buy shirts. I found several shirts that looked maternity but weren't so I just alternated my outfits. Guess it depends how often you want to do laundry. If you work full-time might be beneficial to have a weeks worth of outfits at least. Also, maybe your co-workers would have some maternity clothes they could borrow you. I had two co-workers that gave me a suitcase of all maternity clothes and we've just been alternating them between pregnancies!

We have a swap site on Facebook for our town. I have managed to get my entire maternity wardrobe on there in the last 2 weeks. With my previous pregnancies I bought most of my clothes at Motherhood and Kohls. Kohls seemed to have great prices.
