Yeah . you are in the same boat as me, and the selection was not easy to find. Old Navy sells plus size maternity, but only online, not in the stores. Motherhood Maternity had some (both online and my local store started selling it). My local Sears and JC Penney's both had a little bit, but I didn't really like the selection.

I was going to say Old Navy also. I just ended up doing super-plus sized clothes for the most part.

I did find some 2x maternity stuff at Target that worked until the last 6 weeks or so. Found a nice black top (I had to attend a funeral) and a stretch-top skirt that worked nicely. They fit loosely now... the skirt is loose enough that I have to be careful about it some, but I have huge hips so I just watch that my undies don't show.

I will tell you that I didn't like the Old Navy pants ... the belly band had stitching in it that wouldn't stretch and they were too restrictive then. My absolute favorite pants were anything with the "Secret Fit Belly" from Motherhood Maternity ... SOO comfy. I had a pair of khaki's that could roll up into capris, another pair of khaki's for work, and a pair of shorts with this, and I LOVED them all. I wore them from the time I started wearing maternity pants around 14-15 weeks I think all the way up until I had the babies. They stretched with me and were SO comfy. I wore the shorts for a while afterwards too and hated to give them up, because they were comfier than any of my pre=pregnancy shorts

I think Target has some plus size maternity stuff. Also, last time i was pregnant I got some clothes at Shopko and Kohls, not sure if they had plus size stuff, but another place to check out. Also, when i was pregnant last time, most of my tops were actually regular clothes a size bigger. Since baby-doll or A-line tops were in style then (and kind of still are) and they were really long it worked out pretty good to just wear those. For me I didn't get any bigger in the arms, so wearing regular clothes that was just long and a stretchy material worked for me. Also, for my baby shower I wanted something a little more dressy, so I bought a jr's sun-dress, and wore pants with it. no one else knew it was supposed to be a super short dress and not a long top....with having to accomidate another growing baby this time, I'm assuming that will only work for so long this time.

Pre-pregnancy I was a size 14/16 depending on the pants, and I've gained around 25 lbs so I've been looking into finding bigger, maybe plus size maternity clothes too. While its absolutely hit or miss, I've bought a couple work khakis from Goodwill/Savers (one pair was Old Navy, one was Motherhood) that have done me well for the last couple months. Needless to say I am outgrowing them and need to make another trip in the next week lol... Its just so dang hard for me to justify the prices of new clothes from Motherhood maternity or the like when I know I won't wear them longer than a month or two. :/
