I've reached that awkward phase where regular pants are tight to button, but I'm NOT ready for maternity clothes (I think Ive mentioned before how much I dislike maternity clothing--months and months of boring outfits). Today I have my pants fastned with a twist tie to give a little slack...it's actually okay when I'm standing, but when I sit it digs in... **squiiiish** sorry, Baby, Mommy is going to squeeze into these for a least a few more weeks.
Try a rubber band!
Squeeze it together (to make a flat circle) and take one end to thread through the button hole.
Take the right end and pull it through the left end, pulling any slack so that it's secured through the button hole on your jeans.
The right end can now stretch to the button and give you at LEAST another 3-4 inches!
You ladies crack me up!
I JUST came out of my regular work pants. I had them unzipped halfway and unbuttoned. My mom bought me some maternity pants this past weekend and.. I will say WHEW I CAN BREATHE!! LOL But I hear ya about squishing the baby.
I've never even tried to fling a rubber band since. I'm too scared.
I agree that maternity clothing is boring and kinda a waste of money. All the clothes I wore last pregnancy was summer and now I'm going to be pregnant all winter. Go figure! So this time instead of buying maternity I'm going to buy some different style leggings and some shirt dresses with some cute comfy flats. I think that's alot cuter then oversized maternity clothes that keep falling off me and I can start wearing it now.
smooth adriana. lol it's something I've done plenty but of course I don't learn my lesson.
Samanatha- that sounds super cute. I got a coupke maternity pasts but i do wear a lot of my church dresses with stocking durng the week now too

Keep an eye out I was rrecently able to get a pair of black pants and a skirt with elastic waits that weren't maternity. I figure they will work well once I am pregnant, but for now they are awesome on those 'fat' days that pop up. My skirt in particular will stretch a long way comfortably. My Materity clothes last time were dresses and tops bwith some give in them in a size bigger than normal, worked great because I could wear them before I go too huge. I had one dress which I call my miracle dress because it fits well before, during and after pregnancy
