What's in your maternity wardrobe? Do you plan on buying anything more or are you pretty set?

I need to wear professional clothes to work each day. I have 1/2 a wardobe left over from our first two. This time I supplemented with items from Gap. They actually have nice dresses for work. I purchased some open front sweaters to wear as jackets to make them look appropriate for the office.

Two pair of maternity jeans, one pair of maternity leggings and maybe half a dozen shirts. Some of my long shirts and sweaters from pre-pregnancy still work, so I wear those as well. And I've also got a few sun dresses and sweater dresses that have a high waist and they still work on me too. Today I'm wearing a blue paisley print sundress with a cardigan over it and leggings under it.

I probably won't be buying any more stuff, I hate to spend money on clothes that I'll only wear for another 3 months. Especially when that money could be going towards baby stuff!

I. LOVE. EBAY!!! lol I've been buying the rest of my summer wardrobe on eBay the last week and it's been AWESOME!! I got a pair of black shorts for $1 (plus $6 for shipping, still a deal), a pair of bathing suit bottoms for $8.60, Motherhood Maternity bermuda shorts for $11.50, and Motherhood Maternity jean capris for $14 (free shipping!!).

I will still look at the consignment sales this weekend and next to see if I find any other bottoms or tank tops for cheap. But I got a TON of hand me down tank tops and t shirts from my friend, so I really don't need to buy much more!

My next option, if I do decide on anymore new clothes, would be walmart online! I didn't realize they sold maternity (they don't in my local stores), but their shorts/capris are $14 with .97 cent shipping if anyone is interested!

I have a lot. Definitely enough, but I may get something special to wear to my shower and maternity pics.

I only have 2 pairs of sweatpant/yoga pants maternity pants, and one pair (originally bought used in my previous pregnancy) is just sad and saggy... plus it is in a sorta shiny fabric that shows panty line I think I want to ditch those and get a couple pairs of nice black yoga pants or soft palazzo type pants. I was wearing some stretchy non-maternity yoga pants for as long as possible but I just can't stretch them out any more and they are cutting into me. I have enough shirts though and I have a maternity hoodie I am wearing every day. I am basically in 100% maternity already, even my normal hoodies and fleeces don't zip up anymore... I was past 30 weeks when that happened last time!!

I have nothing. I gave my maternity clothes to my sister, and she doesn't know where they are. Knowing this is my last pregnancy, I just can't seem to let myself buy anything! I don't want to spend the money when I only have 14 weeks left. :/

I have a good amount of wintery type clothes, but I am a little concerned about what I will do in May and June. At work I should be fine, b/c it will be air conditioned, but at home and out and about I am wondering if i will have enough. I don't have any shorts or capris or anything like that, so I might have to get something like that. I will have to see how hot it gets

I bought a lot when gap & old navy had a good clearance going online. I have had to wear maternity since about 10 weeks or so and I have to dress up for work. I have 2 pairs dress slacks, 2 cords(1 skinny 1 reg), 2 skinny twill pants, 3 skinny jeans, 2 reg jeans from before and 1 maternity leggings. I have like 15 dress tops/sweaters and 4 or 5 casual long & short sleeves, 3 dresses. Sad thing is I am growing out of a few things already. I figure I am not going to buy warm weather clothes and if push comes to shove I will have my mom make me a few moo-moo's bc aint nothing else gonna fit around this giantness shortly!

I wear scrubs everyday so I have very limited need for maternity clothes. I have a few pairs of pants, shorts, shirts and dresses. I'm going to try to make do with what I have since I plan on this baby being our last.

I am pretty set for the rest of cold weather... I only have 1 sundress, 1 pair of shorts, 1 pair of capris and 1 t-shirt for warm weather! So I have to go find some shirts and and maybe another dress or two and some more shorts. Ross has become my best friend... I have been checking there every couple weeks.

I have enough for winter but will probably buy a pair of shorts and another short sleeve shirt or two for the summer months...and maybe a maxi dress i can wear after pregnancy. I am mostly going to depend on my elastic waist summer skirts for the warm days ahead.

I am pretty set. I did have to start over on my maternity work wardrobe because I am a lot skinnier this time. I bought 3 work pants, 1 skirt, 3 dresses, and some dressier shirts. I did get a pair of jeans and a few casual shirts and casual dress too. I did have a few dressy shirts from my sister's maternity clothes and a few shirts and dresses from my maternity clothes that aren't too big. Oh and I had to buy a cocktail dress. We have a black tie fundraiser in May. I shouldn't need anything else. My sister has some summer stuff that I can wear once it gets warmer. I might splurge and get a cute maxi dress for maternity pics but we'll see

I've bought 4 maxi dresses which are good while I'm pregnant and will fit after I have her too, also bought a pair of maternity shorts at a consignment store for $5 bucks and they're in great shape. So I'm pretty much set, I'll be wearing my yoga pants and tank tops which still fit plus the stuff I bought. I will be going to buy nursing tank tops and nursing bras when it gets closer to delivery and that's about it.
