I have tried not to buy a ton because I didn't want to spend a lot of money, but it is driving me crazy wearing the same things over and over again. I have 7 shirts with 2 of them already becoming too short. I have 2 pairs of shorts. I have 1 pair of jeans that fit plus 2 pairs that someone gave me that are about 4 sizes too big so I only wear them I am desperate. I have about 20 long sleeve shirts and sweaters on loan from a friend, but it's too hot still to wear them.

I literally wear the same pair of pants almost every day and rotate through the same few shirts. How about you guys?

I'll be honest I don't have much maternity maternity. I have 1 pair of maternity pants I will wear and then about 9 pairs of yoga pants

For shirts I do have 4-5 maternity tops that I like but I still am mostly wearing my clothes and stretching them out haha

Now that it is no longer summer, I lost my three pairs of capris. Bummer.

As for the rest, I probably have about 8 warmer weather shirts (at least I can pair them with cardigans or the like) and three cooler weather shirts. I finally broke down and got some maternity underwear. I have a pair of maternity skinny jeans, maternity boot cut, and a pair of nice black pants. I do have a pair of maternity leggings, but those still have the tags on. Oops.

Still have regular bras. I'm just too large for maternity ones (36H-ish) and I would have to special order them. I probably will get on that eventually.

I do find that I need to do laundry within about a week now.

Thanks to *Vicki* for an AMAZING siggy

I have two pair of maturity shorts (though now its too cold to wear them) and three pairs of maturity jeans. But I really only like one pair of them so I tend to wear them all the time. I have no maturity tops yet. I don't want to spend a bunch of money on them and I have just now gotten big enough that my regular shirts are getting too tight so I'm going to have to do something soon. But I'm dragging my feet about it since I only have another three months to go. I work in a bank so I have to wear dress clothes there but I just couldn't bring myself to spend money on something that I only wear a couple days a week. So I'm just wearing my sweaters and streching them out since I don't plan on returning to work there anyway. I had a pair of dress pants that were two sizes too big so I still use them though they are now too small so I use an elistic band on them. I only have another two and a half months of work so I'm hoping I can make them work until then

I have a pair of shorts, two pairs of jeans, 2 pairs of yoga pants, 2 pairs of gaucho pants, 2 long sleeve shirts, a couple t-shirts, a sweater and some hoodies. Could use some more shirts and maybe some leggings and i would like to get some sweater dresses but otherwise not doing too badly so far. I just bought 1/2 this stuff recently though cause i was desperate and it's getting colder out.

I don't really have that much. I have about 6 maternity tops, 4 pairs of ordinary leggings, a pair of black maternity pants and 2 jumpers I still fit into. Oh and a maternity coat. I could do with a pair of jeans and another pair of black pants.
Thank you cavewoman for my beautiful siggy!!!

I have a few. I haven't bought anything new though except two shirts from consignment. I was still teaching last pregnancy and bought four pairs of jeans and a pair of black slacks that I am using now. I still have one pair of jeans I can put a hair tie around the button on. I have a few mat shirts but mostly just Tees and things I can still stretch over my belly, lol. I use cami's to wear under things and if its hot. I do have one pair of mat shorts from last time too, but its getting too cold. I also had bras from last time. They are not mat but just a bigger size with support. I don't buy mat bras... I wait til baby comes and get nursing bras.

Honestly I am most comfy in stretchy/yoga pants that I wear anyway.

I have about 10 pairs of pants (and 3 shorts that I can't wear as it is cold here). I have one maternity dress and about 10 shirts. I can wear my regular shirts still as I'm carrying really low so they don't get stretched out. Half my stuff is from my pregnancy with my DS and the rest I bought for $1 each at the Salvation Army.

I have a pair of black dress pants and three pairs of jeans. Two dresses and 15-20 shirts. Half of those shirts are solid long sleeve and I just layer with blazers and sweaters. My band for my pants is still working well so I'm able to wear most non maternity pants

I have 2 pairs of capri's, A pair of Khaki's that sit below the belly, but is getting miserable to wear. I also have 2 pairs of slacks that I should be able to wear for a while still. I think I have a pair or two of pants that I put away that I am too small for.

I have my maxi dress and two other dresses that I should be able to wear with tights (if I get some)

I have a lot of shirts that are baggy and big from before baby that I can still wear and several maternity shirts as well.

Then there are the PJ pants I love those!

Thank you *Kiliki* for once again doing such amazing work on a siggie

I really need to get some yoga pants. I have only a couple of pairs of pants (one is a capri pair) and I have a pair of maternity leggings. The shirts I wear are just tank tops and I really did not get any maternity shirts or anything.

I have practically nothing at all.

I have a zip up hoodie to wear over my work uniform, two nice shirts, two tank tops and a winter coat.

When I am not in work uniform (which is just an XXL sized shirt and my regular pants unbuttoned), I am wearing non-maternity leggings rolled down under the belly.

So classy

Thanks so much to bokkechick for the amazing siggy!

i have a pair of skinny mat jeans, a pair of boot cut mat jeans, 5-6 pairs of mat capris, and 3 pairs of mat shorts, though its getting too chilly for those here recently. i have ten to fifteen mat tops, some of which are getting too short...ugh...I also have a few pairs of yoga pants, though some more of those would be great. I am debating buying a new pair of jeans, because it gets frustrating if i need them and the one pair i have are in the wash.
