I am TOTALLY ready to wear mine. With all my bloat I'm totally hurting in some of my pants. Sad

I feel the same. And I cannot wait until I no longer have to worry about sucking in my stomach at all.

I have always said that a smart designer would create regular, non maternity pants with an elastic front. Who doesn't love comfort!!!! I've been eyeing up deals on left over winter clothes from this year since I'll need them in the fall. Old Navy had a great maternity winter coat for only $15! I'm still too nervous to buy new stuff though. I'm waiting til my appointment on Wednesday.

Getting a coat now is a great idea! I really want to buy clothes while I am in the states because they are so much cheaper, but I am also too nervous to buy anything. If all looks well at the ultrasound, I will go ahead with it.

I am totally with you!! I LOVE wearing maternity clothes and not worrying about looking fat. I also love walking around with the belly bump! I buy the maternity clothes that really show off the bump. Smile

I started with the maternity clothes this weekend! ha! But not for the normal reasons... my belly isn't too big for my pants... its just that I can't stand to have things tight on my belly. At work I walk around with my pants unbuttoned so that they are loose (I work where nobody sees me so its not a big deal). But we went out of town this weekend to an amusement park and I knew that just not buttoning my pants wasn't really an option... so I broke out my mat jeans and just folded the belly part down.... they were still a little tight on my belly, but better than the alternative.

Yeah I get that. I want to wear my sweats but they have an elastic band that is irritating a lot.

Yes exactly!! I haven't been sleeping in pants bc I just can't handle things touching. I have a pair of fleece pants I made and they aren't elastic. I've been wearing those but even they were bothering me last night.

Does this yuck feeling eventually go away? I don't remember it being an issue later on in the pregnancy... Anyone btdt moms remember?

I remember the pants always being bothersome... And My sister is almost 16 weeks with her 3rd and she said she doesn't like ANYTHING on her belly... She'd rather wear dresses.

i was like that with my DD, well into my pregnancy..... i was actually surprised i could do the full panel, but the low rise things cut into my belly too much and drove me crazy... sometimes the part where the panel attaches to the pants bothers me, but it's something i can "forget" about...

I think I'm going to have to get some maternity pants for work. Today they're feeling very tight and riding very low which makes me uncomfortable at work.

Also I'm very bloated lately and all my work blouses are rather fitted. I don't want anyone at work knowing just yet....

I might start using a pony tail so that the pants can stay unbuttoned (at least the afternoon portion of the day)

I've switched over to skirts and dresses only. My jeans still fit, but like you guys said, they are just not comfortable at all. I also have a bit of a muffin top in them right now. Oh, and my boobs have already gone up a whole cup size, so I had to break down and get some new bras already.

I am normally a 34DD so I feel your pain. I just went up to a 36DD even though I am not any wider around- it is just easier to find bras in that size. They ride up a little in the back, but I remember with my daughter, my back eventually did expand (along with my hips and everything else) so I am sure I will need the room in the not to distant future.

Always fun stuff! I'm amazed at how quickly bodies can adjust.
