Elizabeth - almost all of my pants are leftover from when I was preg with T, and they are all under the belly, or worse yet, mid belly. I must be carrying differently this time around, because I don't remember hating them last time, but I seriously hate them this time. I'm just too cheap to buy all new clothes. I did buy one pair of jeans this time and a skirt, and they both have the full belly panel. Soooooo much more comfortable. If I could, I would have all of my pants be over the belly this time around. Luckily, with both the jeans and the skirt,the belly panel is the same color as the rest of it, so it helps with the too short shirt problems I've been having.
