Cute stuff.. where are you??

Also skinny jeans are such a trend right now.. Why can't I find any besides the 80$ pair at Gap or 180$ pair at Nordstroms? Ugh!

Gap is the best I've found.. Luckily, I haven't had to buy any yet, but looking has been discouraging.

They are adorable.. but 80$ for a pair of jeans? Thats just so much! I usually spend 40$ on my levis that I use for years! Double that for less then 9 months? Am I just over reacting? LOL

Heck no! $80 is ALOT for a pair of jeans, especially ones that will be used for less than 9 months! lol if I can make it through the winter without needing new clothes, I'll take over DH's wardrobe nothing but basketball shorts and T-shirts for me (except maybe splurging on a cute spring dress or something)

I tend to think maternity Tees and tank tops are adorable. Motherhood maternity is my favorite. I've always been lucky to find adorable clothes there.

I love second hand shops. I know Clothes Mentor has a huge maternity section

You could always go the Old Navy ($20) or Motherhood ($40) route. Honestly, I've already decided that I'm going to splurge on two good pair of maternity skinny jeans, amidst my cheaper ones.

I just saw someone on etsy that takes your jeans & converts them to maternity...so, that could be an option for some.

I bought the eco denim ones from Motherhood when I went down there this weekend.. They fit great with plenty of room, they were 40$ but I don't think I can settle with just one pair. The other skinny jeans they had just had a super weird faded wash to them.. I need to check out Old Navy though!

I've had 3 babies so far and never bought any maternity, except a pair of overalls (they stayed up better) that I got with my third for work. I just put a shirt over them. I live in sweats, jeans not buckled with a long shirt, and basketball shorts! I do have a dress I recently bought on clearance, one of th elong ones, hoping it'll look good on my with a belly.

I LOVED mine. I worked my whole pregnancy and did a lot of up and down bending etc. It really stayed in place. I can't wait to get another one. its also nice postpartum.

Definitely plan on getting a bella band this go-round.
I have a big box of maternity clothes from DS, I'm not positive but I think a good bit may still fit me. He was born in June too, so I have a bit of summer clothes thankfully
