Clothes

I can't stop looking at all the clothes I want to buy when I'm no longer pregnant! I keep wanting to shop for summer clothes but I won't do it until I can try stuff on. I swear I'm getting a whole new wardrobe after this kiddo.

I have not looked at clothes but I am so going to be getting a new wardrobe after this baby too. It won't be right away due to budget and getting in shape first but that will definitely be a goal I'm working toward right away. I've been wearing maternity pants pregnant or not a good bit since DS1. I did buy a couple of nice slacks for work after DS2 b/c I actually lost weight breast feeding him and got down too small for everything I had been wearing but for the most part I need to go through my closet and throw out like 80% of what is in there and start fresh.

I like to think that I'll freshen up my style, but I'm such a workout pants and tshirt kind of girl. Hopefully I can add a few things to my wardrobe to freshen it up. I'll realistically start with fall clothes in order to make sure of sizing - but my goal is to fit into most of my smaller things by August since I have a couple weddings then, and I'd like to wear something I already own since dresses for those occasions is one thing I do have!

I will be in my nursing tops and maternity pants and shorts a while. I pan on a big body overhaul when I'm cleared so I can break out my various totes representing the road to becoming this fat lol. Well see what's in there soon... Scary.

I totally understand that! I will be wearing maternity bottoms for at least 8 weeks after. I am determined not to buy anythign new until we go to Arizona in December - hopefully by 6 months PP I will be down to a good enough size that I can invest in some awesome new clothes!

I do the same thing with clothes! Actually, most of my summer tops are log and flowy - and most of them still fit me now. I like it because they do a good job of "hiding the belly" in the immediate postpartum time.

I love my maternity tank tops and will be sad to see them go. I might keep a couple of the ones that are just on the longer side, but I'll likely be selling a LOT of my maternity tops after baby comes...but I'll probably be in the pants for quite a while. I didn't lose much weight with DD's nursing even though she was exclusively BF...she just wasn't a big eater. This baby might be different I guess. We'll see. Biggrin

I'll wait till I go back to work. I like some maternity clothes and usually have to force myself to stop wearing them, lol!

It can definitely be different this time...it was for me. I was back to my pre-pregnancy weight by my 6 week post partum check-up with both of my boys. But with DS1 I went on to gain 20 lbs during his first year...I was always so hungry while BFing him and my body held onto every calorie. With DS2 I lost down to almost 15 lbs below my normal weight my body likes to sit at when I eat what I want to eat. The weight just kept coming off with no effort on my part. I'm hoping for the same this time and adding in me actually trying and being very careful not to pack it back on as soon as baby stops BFing.
