I no longer fit in my clothes. I tried on my loosest fitting jeans this morning and they're too tight. I'm down to 5 pairs of maternity pants and sweatpants. At least those are comfortable...for now!

I saw those and almost bought one, but I wasn't sure if they could really hold your pants up. Do they work well? I haven't been able to zip up my pre-pregnancy jeans for a couple weeks, but I hate maternity pants. I have a pair of the secret fit belly from Motherhood and I have to constantly pull them up because they're always sliding down!

My maternity pants are from Target and I love them. I had to have them shortened because they were way too long, but otherwise they fit perfect. They don't fall down much, once in a while I have to pull them up a bit, but no more than regular pants.

I looked at the bands, but part of my problem is my pants are too tight everywhere, not just in the waist. Ah, the joys of pregnancy.

My jeans are a tiny bit tight, but definitely still wearable. But then again I still basically just look chubbier than actually pregnant...

I bought Gap Maternity Skinny Jeans the other day online, OBSESSED. I LOVE maternity leggings too. I was in between a size 2 and 4 when I got pregnant, and since I have no hips anymore none of my jeans will button, or even come close. I am also in between my maternity tops and regular tops. I go with the ones that make me look pregnant and not fat lol.

I wear my belly band everyday, I dont want to spend a ton on maternity dress pants for work so this is working perfect to hold up my unzipped/unbuttoned work pants!

I used a bella band for a couple months, but I found as time goes on I can't stand the feeling of things compressing my belly.

I got these, and I super love them...

I was using bella bands when buttoning my pants became uncomfy for my tummy. I could still zip the pants at least halfway then. Now, I cannot zip 99.9 percent of my pants at all and I hate using the belly band with unzipped pants. I feel exposed and it's all lump there. I have lots of maternity pants handmedowns. SO COMFY. If you can't zip your pants, don't bother with the bands. I wish I didn't spend $60 on two bands I worse for 2 weeks :-(

I have 2 pairs of pre-pregnancy jeans that are still comfortable, they are really stretchy. But all of my other pants are getting too tight, especially after I eat. I bought my first pair of maternity pants yesterday.
