1. I'm in pjs and yoga pants.
2. I'm going to have to go this weekend and buy some because I'm popping out of my others. I hope to get four but well see how the budget goes.
3. Last time I was thirty pounds heavier and couldn't mind any nursing tops to fit me. I hope Tobit one or two this time.

At work and out the secret fit belly pants at home pj pants Smile

I bought a bunch of nursing tanks from the deal of the day websites when they had Glamor Mom and Bravado. I loved nursing tanks with Evan and only bought cheap ones from Target so I was happy to catch deals on both brands I had heard good things about.

I'll probably buy a few nursing bras too but not right away - by March after Evan was born I had lost all the weight and fit back in my normal bra size so I don't want to buy a bunch that will only fit Nov-Feb/March then need more from March-Nov! So I'll wait use waht I have and tanks and then buy a few nice ones when my size balances out.

1. I'm wearing maternity clothes in a size bigger than usual! I just bought a bunch of used clothes for cheap to get me through the next 2 months. Most of my maternity clothes are size small and don't fit anymore, so I bought some used mediums and larges. I also do a lot of yoga pants, but I like wearing pants with the full belly panel better because then you can't tell if my shirt is too short!

2. I have nursing bras from DD and DS. None that I really love, but I think I'll wait and see how successful I am with BFing this time before I buy one I love. I BFed DD for 7 months, but only made it 3 weeks with DS (bad infection, bad latch, and couldn't deal with BFing while entertaining an 18 month old!) This time I hope to make it at least 6 months.

3. I never liked nursing shirts. I have 1 or 2, but I mostly just wore normal ones and pulled them up.

1. What are you wearing these days? I've outgrown a lot of my size medium maternity shirts since my baby has dropped. They barely cover the bottom of my belly. Luckily, when I found out I was pregnant in March I bought several fall/winter shirts in a size large knowing that I would need them in October. All my pants have a fully belly panel, which I love because it makes me feel more supported and not exposed.

2. Have you bought nursing bras yet? I bought some when I outgrew my other bras. These are a D cup and I'm hoping to continue to wear them but not sure if they will fit when my milk comes in. We'll see.

3. Are you planning on getting nurses shirts or just managing with regular ones? I'll buy one if I find a really good deal, otherwise I'll just pull up my regular shirt.

1. What are you wearing these days? Secret belly pants/capris/shorts, Old Navy low rise maternity jeans (which drive me BONKERS, but look FANTASTIC and were FREE!!!) with a bella band; target maternity t-shirts (I actually wore two after I was pregnant, because I liked the length), old navy fold down waist yoga pants.

2. Have you bought nursing bras yet? Nope. I will probably get a few next month, some in my normal size (38DD) and some bigger. I'll go with the cheap ones from Walmart.

3. Are you planning on getting nurses shirts or just managing with regular ones? I'll probably get a few lightweight tanks and wear them under regular t-shirts. I don't work outside of the house, and all of our friends/family are extremely bf friendly, but I don't want my purple striped belly hanging out for all to see.

Don't do what I did -- like the first month my boobs were GI-NORMOUS and I freaked and bought a really good (Bravado) nursing bra in a HUGE size. It fit great.....for like a month. I'll probably be able to wear it a bit again which is good but I wish I had waited for all the engorgement to go down (I had it HORRIBLY) and the water weight and regular weight etc and bought an expensive nursing bra in a size I could have worn longer since I nursed nearly 14 months. So this time I'll probably wear tanks and cheap-o nursing bras for the first month or two (I'll be home anyway what do I care?) and then when my weight and boobs seem to have normalized I'll buy something nice so I look decent and not gross in work clothing LOL I am hoping some of the nursing tanks will work well under work clothing b/c it's easier IMO to pump at work if I have a nursing bra/tank on

1. What are you wearing these days? Anything with big elastic bands on pants, and preggo tops - I think everything I wear is maternity clothing now!
2. Have you bought nursing bras yet? Yeap, and I'm wearing them already because they are so much more comfy than my other ones!
3. Are you planning on getting nurses shirts or just managing with regular ones? It will be over summer to begin with, so will manage with regular tank tops.

I have looked and looked at my Walmart and could not find any nursing bras! Is this just an online thing or maybe only certain stores carry them?

1. What are you wearing these days? I am wearing mat jeans will full panel, still come capris on warmer days and maternity sweats. I have to have a panel or I my tummy hurts. Shirts I have to be careful on some as they are too short now.

2. Have you bought nursing bras yet? Nope not yet.

3. Are you planning on getting nurses shirts or just managing with regular ones? My neighbour gave me a couple nursing shirts so that was nice. I think for the rest of the time I will just manage with the clothes I have

My Walmart DOES...but I had to wait in line to ask a man to show me where they were because they were SO HIDDEN!

1. What am I wearing? It isn't pretty, let me tell you. I spend most of my days at home in a maxi dress. I'm tall and torso-y enough that I have an awful time finding long enough shirts while NOT pregnant. Haven't outgrown my stash of maternity pants and skirts, but I'm really running low in the tops department.

2. I just picked some sports-bra type ones yesterday. They are super stretchy, so I'll make it work until my boob size normalizes.

3. I'm a big camisole girl, so probably lots of nursing tanks. Anyone have a brand rec for ones that are really, really long???

2. Have you bought nursing bras yet? yup, got two lol, wearing one right now haha
3. Are you planning on getting nurses shirts or just managing with regular ones? got two but i use normal tanks as well...i think the nursing tanks will work best at night because i can not wear a bra and i can wear normal tanks in the day to feel somewhat normal

Jenni: I went to walmart today and got a maternity bra. Its Warners and they also had wonderbra ones, but only in boxes, not on the racks. However, I went to Sears after the prices beleive it or not for the same bras were about $7 less each.
