We're built By Parents, For Parents™. We've banded together to build a website to educate, empower, and connect ourselves, other parents, and people trying to become parents. We're doing this out of our love for children, and our desire to do our best raising them to become good adults. We believe parenting is a sacred responsibility.

question
Maternity Clothes?
I was laughing earlier tonight about some of the comments within a debate on a new maternity line being touted by celebs. (The consensus appeared to be rather unanimous at last check -- against!) The comments, however, got me to thinking of my own maternity clothing choices.

For our formerly pregnant moms, how did you handle your maternity wardrobe choices? Were you one to invest wholeheartedly in specific maternity wear or did you opt solely for a few select pieces? Did you instead opt for larger (normal clothing) sizes -- or rob your partners closet for loose fitting shirts? Were your choices shaped from outside sources (such as demands for a work environment or for "appearance" sake? Curious minds want to know!! Share your experience within the comments. (Also, don't forget to friend the page by clicking on the blue star while you're here!) Drop me a note if you need assistance at missyj@pregnancy.org!
