How do my maternity pants NOT fit???

And work officially starts tomorrow. I have lost weight and was excited and never tried on pants. I bought new shirts figuring I'd wear my maternity pants for a while. and they DONT FIT as in TOO SMALL. how the heck are my maternity pants I wore as a WHALE too small!!!!? they are so tight on my butt and thighs Im afraid they'd split if I tried to sit down in them. and I have to wear them to tomorrow's opening day bc I have nothing else. I was excited that I finally had a pair of jeans with a button and zipper that fit... though they are a size 14 almsot double what I was before being preg.... and allt hose happy feelngs are gone now. and between tomorrow and Monday I have to find enough clothes that fit for a week's worth of work. can I call out sick the first 2 motnhs?? sorry for my awful typing... trying on clothes resulted ina break down.

Boo! I had the same issue, and even went to go buy new jeans (my pre-pregnancy ones were pretty ratty) and had to buy a couple sizes up from pre-pregnancy. I am going to chalk it up to my hips not being set back in place yet.

I hope you get to feeling better.

Boo! I'm having horrible time dropping weight this time around and have had a few breakdowns as a result. I'm not expecting to be in my regular pants yet or anything but sheesh I hate being in 3 sizes up from my norm!

I gained a ton of weight after dd1 and wore maternity from 3 mo pregers with her till now straight. I broke down in stores trying to find regular jeans whennshe was 6 months old and gave up entirely in the health and clothing departments. Please learn from me and keep trying lol. This tome i cant keep my maternity on mynbutt for the life of me and mynpre elora jeans are big too. Ive lost a lot but am in physical therpy and working out every day bc of being on bedrest for so long and other issues ill post about when i feel up to it. I hope u feel better soon and find some clothes Smile

I'm having similar issues. I'm below my pre-pregnancy weight, but things are just in different places it seems. Nothing fits in my closet and I bought new jeans a size up from where I was!

I'm hoping things go back a bit more into place.
