Pre Pregnancy Clothes

Who is fitting in their pre pregnancy clothes? I'm not! Ha ha I won't wear the shirts because there's not easy access to BF and my jeans...I tried my biggest ones on today to realize I had to wiggle them above my hips and then they weren't even close to buttoning lol. So stretchy pants and maternity shorts it is!

I am wearing tank tops a lot because it's easy to BF and because it's hot. But also I wear a lot of dresses in summer time, and I know those will fit since they're flowy. However, I have other ones that aren't very accessible from the top that I'd like to wear, but I guess I'll wear those on days I just pump a lot instead (although I hate that because I love BFing!)

Anyways, I wonder if my hips will go back this time around or not. I don't remember how long it took with my girls but it's only been just over 2 months so I'm not too worried about it. Plus it's not cold so I don't need pants (like it was with my girls). Anyone wearing the pre pregnancy clothes?

I have one pair of pre-preg jeans that I fit into, but they were a bit big before, so nothing to brag about. DH says he's been noticing that my butt has gotten smaller, so hopefully I'll eventually fit back into all my clothes again.

My pre pregnancy clothes are a bit to Big, I had lost a lot of weight during the beginning and actually weigh less now then I did before getting pregnant. I just have a lot of flat in my belly... Sad I guess that comes from baking a big ole baby. No joke I can stretch the flat out like 6 inches I know TMI!

I'm within a couple pounds of my pre-preggo weight. Wearing pre-preggo tops, but maternity bottoms. My jelly belly is huge, and can't squeeze into normal pants yet. I have another 10 pounds to lose to get to pre-DD1 weight, and hopefully those 10 pounds will get rid of the gut.

I do but only have a handful of Capri pants and really need to go get some jeans. I've been wearing my mat. jeans too but they are too big and slide down nonstop requiring way too much pulling up. Also in reg. tops too with the nursing tank under but need some more. Feel like I'm missing a ton of clothes for some reason.

I am completely out of maternity clothes. I am even out of my post pregnancy fat pants from my previous pregnancies. I fit into most of my pre-pregnancy pants, just a few of the skinnier ones do not fit yet. I am wearing my normal shirts as well, but thouse I have been wearing since about 2 wks. It feels good!

Oh gosh... no. Not even close. I can wear a few dresses, but that's it. I gained 48 lbs during the pregnancy and so far have only lost about 22, so I've got my work cut out for me!! That's what I get for indulging myself for 9 months! Beee

Pretty much. I'm back in all my pre DS clothes, but I lost an 'extra' 5 kilos after having him, so there are a few jeans and capris that are still tight over my hips. Hoping to be back in them soon.

I just did the great closet switchover yesterday. I'm about 5 pounds under my pre-preg weight which is nothing to brag about because I'm still very fluffy. Smile I am definitely more chunky in the midsection though than pre-preg. I must have lost the extra weight in my ankles or something. But, the clothes fit. They just look a little less flattering. I'm mostly wearing lounge pants and t-shirts unless I leave the house.

The weight is gone, and some (thank you, breastfeeding).

But, the fit is all off :(. Most of my pre-pregnancy tops are too tight, due to my ridiculously huge boobs (thank you - NOT, breastfeeding). Some pants fit, but are tight around my belly, due to the flabby overhang. Ugh. The maternity pants don't fit either, so I'm cycling between in-house sweats, and two pairs of jeans if I need to go out.

Yes! My tops are tight too (except the tank tops I have are suppose to be snug fit, so it's okay) and my pants don't like to go over my hips. If I do manage to button them my "beautiful" flab that hangs looks worse lol. I did find out I can wear a lot of skirts today though and the waistband part...I tuck my tummy under it so it doesn't look as bad lol.

nope but i'll use having a May baby as an excuse haha.

Weight still has about 20lb to go (can't stop eating chocolate sigh), my tops don't fit (and like many of you going the tank route) however I have a longer torso to begin with so reaching pants is always a pain and with my humungo boobs what normally fits is a sad sad belly shirt sigh. As for pants I'm SOL!!! Hips are far from back in (and with ds1 I remember being back at prepreg weight and still not in pants. I forget when though grr
