how are...

your clothes fitting now? Im still ok...my button pants are getting a little snug and uncomfortable at the end of the day. I just bought some sweats, 2 pairs of yoga type pants, and a pair of casual khakis all of which have elastic even though they are not maternity...and Im gravitating towards those these days Smile I just got rid of ALLLL my maternity stuff...about 2 months ago. AND I HAD A TON!! Sad

For shirts I'm def still wearing regular shirts. Pants I am wearing some maternity and some regular. That is more just to increase my wardrobe, than because I need the bigger size. In fact by the end of the day the maternity capris and shorts are often falling off cause they are too loose. I am wearing a couple tank tops that are maternity, but they are not very obvious, I don't think. I can't wait for two more weeks, to have my ultrasound and wear whatever I want. I popped enough this last week that if I put on a maternity shirt it would be REALLY obvious I'm pregnant, and since I'm still trying to avoid that.... I'm still wearing regular shirts!!

I am doing alright in my "fat pants" for my tummy area, but because I've lost about 7 pounds, they hang on me everywhere else. I find myself only wearing those when I absolutely have to bc they get so tight by the end of the day and I have to unbutton them. I mostly just live in sweats when I'm home, and at work I wear scrubs, so there's not an issue there. I don't look pregnant or anything. I can see the difference, but I hide my babies really well, so it'll be a while before I actually look pregnant.

We should start a belly pic thread!

Regular clothes are still fitting OK, the pants are getting a little tight by the end of the day. I bought a bella band, so that def helps! I've been trying to wear baggier shirts because my belly is sticking out so far and we haven't told anyone yet!

I feel like I am in that stage "Is she fat or is she pregnant?" I bought a couple maternity pants and still wear the regular ones. Regular shirts but maternity uniforms. No sense of walking around out of regs when others stare me in the gym and ask "why are her pants unbuttoned or where is her belt?"

I tend to pop out fast...the doc said I have a lot of amniotic fluid. Um...ok. I pop out fast and then just stay and expand sideways. Oh, good times are coming! Wink

lol - no worries at all...I showed really really fast and thought I was going to have a "chunker"...nope. Chloe was only 4lbs, 12oz. Some people can hide the baby well...not me. Fourth pregnancy and my body remembers and wants to show the world already!

She was in NICU for 5 hrs but was able to take her home on time. My biggest fear was her being so tiny and not being able to take her home and have to leave w/out her. She was full-term, though. Only one week early via induction. She was healthy - tiny and mighty!

Ive got pants that I don't wear anymore more because they are just too tight, and Ive moved to my looser shirts. This is my fifth kid and my poor body just doesn't have the tummy muscles to keep things in anymore. I was in mat clothes at 11 weeks with my last kid, so I wouldn't be surprised if I wasn't in full mat clothes by Thanksgiving.

Eh. I just look SUPER bloated. Pants are tight. I went to motherhood and tried on some pants. The xs are too big. (I have no hips or butt) The bella band works for now. I havent told my work yet so I am just wearing looser clothing. I am pretty thin, so its noticable that I have went up a cup size and my belly is sticking out... I dont know how much longer I can hide it!

thats cool....thats my biggest fear. i myself was only 4lbs 2oz and three months pre mature. from what i was i told my mom had the rh factor not really for sure what happened but had to take me 3 months early and i spent the first 5 months in my life in a incubator. but as for my baby....its measuring perfectly fine. due two days later than expected but the few minor issues i've had were ruled out with the us's they did.

i think we should do a belly thread. will start one after this post.

I'm in all my normal clothes. They fit fine. If it wasn't for this awful morning sickness, I wouldn't even know I was pregnant.

I have actually lost 3 lbs since getting preg so most of my clothes fit fine. Plus I have lots of different size pants (from the weight loss process after each baby) so hopefully no maternity for a while eve though I do have a tiny belly.

With my 1st I hid it until 5 months and was even in a thin sundress for a wedding and no one could tell Smile the second I showed more around 3 months.
