Congrats!! I am 5 months and maternity clothes are still a little big, well the pants anyway. I went to walmart and bought some cheap clothes in a couple of sizes bigger than I usually wear. That seems to be the thing to do. I havr been wearing the same pair of shorts all summer! I found the tops looked pretty stupid on me up until about a month ago. The pants that have a wide elastic at the top are doing me good right now. I'm saving the ones with the huge panel for the end. At the beginning, the first thing I bought was a new bra, then another new one at about 3 months. And new underwear. Think comfort! Nothing that digs. Something I read that you can do, put an elastic around your button and loop it through the button hole. I did that for a couple of weeks. Just make sure your shirt is long enough!!! The Gap and Old Navy have cute clothes for cheap! Especially online. Have a happy and healthy nine months!!!
due with #1 Feb 3, 2004 It's a Boy!!!
I bought a pair of nice pants with the stretchy waisteband, not the big panel, at about 7 weeks and I have been wearing them since. They were so comfy because I felt so bloated all the time! If you are more comfy in maternity clothing, go for it! As long as you don't have a big saggy cloth pouch because they are way too big, they'll look good!
EDD with baby #1 for hubby and I September 21st, 2003! It's A BOY!
