QOTD 6/10

Whether you are preggo or have had your baby, what clothes do you find yourself wearing these days?

Well, I still have to work right now so I have to dress myself for that. Ugh! I don't have much that still fits so it's like 2 or 3 pairs of pants that get worn twice during the week. I have just worn a dress a couple of times lately too which is not something I wear for work often. Most of my dresses are more appropriate for Sunday dress up than work dressy. But pants are so very uncomfortable right now. Especially after lunch, I am just miserable.

AFA when I get home, I immediately strip to nothing but panties and throw on an oversized t-shirt. Did I mention I hate wearing any pants right now? Blum 3

I usually wear my non-mat t-shirts, I haven't gotten as big this time so most of my regular shirts still fit. And maternity shorts or sweats or pj pants/shorts...

3 days postpartum here, I am still wearing a very comfy, loose, nursing sleep bra, a maternity t-shirt, and yoga pants. I haven't left the house yet at all.

Well, I tend to wear "drapey" shirts, so they work fine as the pregnancy progresses, and they nicely "conceal" a pp belly. Today, I actually got dressed and thought "I don't look the least bit pregnant in this," so that was nice! Smile Oh, and for pants I'm either wearing low waist maternity jeans or just regular jeans a couple sizes bigger then my "real size."

Well, now that I'm big like a house, some of my maternity tops are too short. This is new. So I'm wearing whatever is clean, stain free, and covers my belly. Seems like I drop food on myself EVERY time I eat. I'm keeping the stain stick people in business, that's for sure!

I have some long and stretchy tank tops that I wear under regular shirts. My normal stuff is just now too short so these tanks are a life saver.

I will wear mat shorts all summer because they are comfortable!!!

Lots of my tanks are longer so I'm just wearing those. It's nice out right now anyways.

I'm still mostly wearing my maternity stuff and sweats. My boobs won't allow me to wear my regular shirts and my belly is still pretty jiggly so I actually prefer my maternity stuff that tends to hide it a bit.

Oh man. Nothing fits. Everything looks ridiculous. And I hate clothing. And my boobs are the size of a small house.

I'm mostly still in full panel maternity capris or yoga pants, maternity tank tops (maternity tshirts over if I go out )

I'm still wearing the compression belt, so anything that helps make that more comfortable.

I'm living in my sleep bra and one nursing bra that is really stretchy. I hate nursing pads, but I'll need them for the next few weeks till I stop leaking and regular nursing bras fit again.

Maternity pants, nursing tops and bras and pads. I soak pads as I'm feeding Em on the opposite side lol, so I go though a lot of them. My nursing tops are HUGE tho! I need to shop bad.

When I nursed DD I would get a let-down on the opposite side when she first started feeding. Applying pressure helped stop it...so when she started to nurse I'd just push straight down on my nipple on the other side. Give it a try, that might help you. Another idea is getting one of those breast guards that stores the leakage from the other side so you can use it, something like Lilypadz :

Sounds like me a few weeks ago! I had about 3 maternity tops that still fit. I would wear DH's XL tee shirts!

Now I am wearing some maternity tops and some of my pre-pregnancy tee shirts. I am still wearing the same shorts/yoga pants I always wear. Yesterday I tried on some pre-pregnancy jeans for the heck of it, and I could get them up all the way, I just couldn't snap them yet!
