For those of you that have been pregnant before, did you use Bella bands or something similiar. I want to try to wear my regular clothes as long as possible so I was wondering how well these work. I've also seen them at Motherhood Maternity but I don't know if one works better than the other.
And- do you have a favorite brand of maternity clothes? Old Navy is having an awesome sale right now and I was thinking about stocking up on some pants while they are so cheap. Anyone had good luck with their maternity pants/jeans?
Thank you, Marriedc, for my gorgeous siggy!

I used the bella band, but not for long as my jeans were too tight to begin with, so even unbuttoned they were uncomfortable.

My favorite brand is definitely Old Navy. I have long legs and Motherhood jeans are WAY to short on me. Old Navy jeans fit perfectly. As far as shirts go, I really just wore regular shirts my whole pregnancy. I had a few maternity shirts from Motherhood that I wore, but bigger sized regular shirts worked just fine for me.

Just make sure not to wear your regular clothes TOO far into the pregnancy, that's what I did and after I delivered, I had stretched everything out without realizing it and had nothing to wear.
