Thank heavens for maternity pants!

I'm a STM and have been showing show much more quickly than with my DD. I have been trying to stuff myself in to my size 2-4 pre-pregnancy pants and today put me over the edge. I never bought any maternity jeans with my DD so I didn't have any to grab out of the closet.

Even with my jeans unbottoned and unzipped they were killing me today. I ran to the mall on my break and picked up some maternity jeans and am in love! This made my whole week! I am so much more comfortable! Why in the world did I wait so long!?! lol

 Ahhhhhhh I can now breathe :)

  • I have to say I'm so jealous.   This is my first and I can't wait till I have to wear maternity clothes.  I'm almost 15 weeks my midwife tells me not to expect it till after 20 weeks.  I'm still fitting in my size 2 pants haha sometimes I have to unbutton them but I think that's bloat.  :(  Glad you are comfy in your new jeans where did you get them?

     

     

  • I had been struggling with my pre-pg pants and I just gave up on them and got a stretchy band "pre-preg" jeans from Target for when you're just starting to show.  I now live in them since I'm a FTM and have no other pants that fit (the only other maternity pants I got will only fit once I have a big belly which I definitely do NOT have right now!)

    I actually picked some up at Old Navy. They're pretty cute and the price was reasonable.


  • Yes! I bought mine a few weeks ago and I'm in heaven!
  • There is way too much stigma attached to maternity clothes!!  I had so many peopel brag to me about how they didn't wear maternity clothes...but just picked up shirts a size bigger or "wore yoga pants". Yoga pants aren't an option when you work in a office,p lus I feel that wearing shirts a size bigger would look sloppy/still odd because it's not helping you in the areas your ACTUALLY growing in.

     My only complaint with the maternity pants I purchased is their still a little too big in the seat/legs but help my belly.  My normal pants are very tight in those areas but with the belly band, they are still a little more acceptable in the work place.  I love maternity shirts-especially at this stage with the nice flowy ones :)
