I just can't seem to find the right shoes or underwear.
As for underwear, I was wearing granny panties, but not the elastic band hurts. Any decently price maternity underwear suggestions? If I go any bigger in the granny panties, I'll have a big droopy butt.
As for shoes- I have had issues with my sneakers. My feet just felt restricted, plus they look horrible with my everyday outfits. Then I went to flats, and moccasins but I think they are one of the reasons I can barely walk. I also purchased birkenstocks- but am not in love with them either. I just ordered another pair a sneakers...that aren't running shoes and aren't flat either. I'm hoping for the best.
My underwear is so ratty, once the baby is born and I lose the weight I'm trashing it all and getting all new!
Shoes wise, I pretty much live in these crocs: http://www.amazon.com/dp/B00133C6W8?ref=endl_rd I bought a pair years ago in pink, and when I was pregnant with DD I bought them in black since I could get away with wearing them to work (just fancy enough since no one looked closely and closed toed).
I'm just wearing my regular underwear. Why not try some lower cut options or boy shorts? Those would offer you full coverage without being constricting.
For shoes, I have actually been wearing cheap padded flip flops when I can get away with it. I also discovered compression socks on the advice of my doctor. She recommended them to help me stop passing out, but I notice they really help my legs feel energized and my feet less swollen. I wear my running shoes or coach tennis shoes with them.I highly recommend them! I picked some up at destination maternity for $5.50.
I'm having a horrid time with underwear. Nothing fits right and I'm constantly pulling them up. Yesterday they fell completely down my butt which trying to pull them up in the mall looked ridiculous. As for shoes I live in flip flops. I had been wearing Toms but mine got a hole in the heel. When I was working last time I bought some slip on shoes for crews in wide width and they were perfect!

im having a hell of a time with undies my normal hipsters don't work, I don't like them under the belly but they roll down there at some point daily and they just seem to fall of me because where they should sit, they dont. I tried motherhood hi-cuts... droopy saggy butt and giant billowing crotch. i dont want to spend a ton on on underwear for the next few months, but idk... may have to. sorry im no help but im in the boat with you.
For the most part I'm wearing my regular undies - but sometimes they fall down and it's hard to get them back up when the waist of your pants goes up to your boobs. I have a few pairs of motherhood undies (not sure what style they are) and they are pretty comfy....unless I'm wearing low rise maternity jeans...because then they stick out. LOL
I have been wearing my UGG boots, but I have a hole in the toe and I probably should retire them...I just love them and they are SO comfy. As for undies, I wear VS boy short or a store brand boy short just like before.

I used to have microfiber underwear I got when I was pregnant with my dd. They were perfect. I wish I could find them. The cotton ones I got at motherhood suck.
The shoes I wear are danskos, birkinstock flip-flops, and sketchers tennis shoes, I wish I had more...
i'm still in my normal shoes and underwear and plan to be until birth. i wear mesh thongs from gap body - they have a lot of stretch to them and are very low. at night i wear VS cotton low rise underwear with the lace band. again, they are very low and the lace band is stretchy so that it doesn't dig into me. i wear flats for work and will start wearing flip flops at home once spring really hits.
For shoes I have a pair of these that I love: http://www.zappos.com/keen-sienna-mj-canvas-black-black
They're lightweight and the elastic on top is stretchy, but it's secure enough that they don't feel loose. They're comfortable for walking, though if you were on your feet all day long (I don't think you are with your job) you might need more support.
The only underwear i can wear are boy shorts... the vickies with the laces at the top are the most comfy ... rt now i wear uggs almost everyday they are so comfy but its starting to get warm so im going to have to find something else really soon
