Re: Maternity Clothes

I will probably pick up a few things at yard sales, but I probably could make it through without buying anything. And...who am I kidding, I'll pick up some stuff on clearance because I am a clearance-aholic. I'm actually really looking forward to getting out the maternity totes because there's some cute stuff in there. I've been needing to go regular clothes shopping but I'm glad I waited.

Re: Maternity Clothes

I don't need anything. My last two pregnancies were the EXACT same time frame as this one, and they were in Hawaii, now I am in San Diego. I won't really need maternity clothes until summer, and I have tons of summer stuff.

But, this girl got lucky and won a $500 Destination maternity/Motherhood/Pea in a Pod gift card from my local country radio station last month! Woot! I will probably get a few cute tops and a new pair of jeans, and a couple summer dresses. But, what I am really looking forward to is doing something I would NEVER do out of pocket, and that is buying one of the ridiculously priced maternity ball gowns from Pea in a Pod, for the Navy ball when I am 39 weeks pregnant...at the outlet, on clearance of course.

I agree. So cool. I don't know if I'll be buying anything this go around. I tend to where a lot of skirts and dresses, and I have quite a few nursing/maternity ones that I'm still wearing. Hopefully I can get away with the one pair of maternity jeans I have (the ones with the stretchy belly panel from motherhood), for when it gets colder out. Plus I'm sure I'll be miserable at that point and probably won't be leaving the house much. Hmm, maybe I'll splurge and buy a second pair.

I am going to have to check out those gap maternity jeans now. I need to buy some stuff since I lent most of my maternity stuff to my husbands cousin who didn't return them. And some of the stuff I wore all the time during my last 2 pregnancies started ripping and fading at the end.

I'm on the short but chubby size (5'5', 230lbs) with most of my weight in my belly and sort of a no-butt. Would they be a good fit for me?
I have to admit, I was lurking here. But I am about your weight, just a little taller. And I totally prefer Motherhood over Gap. The XL fit me like a glove!!

Thx! A couple of the other lady's descriptions had me thinking gap wouldn't be a food fit for me. But yours is helpful to confirm. :-). My big-belly-no-butt self would probably look silly in jeans meant to leave ample room for booties and thighs while hugging a smaller waist... I'd probably look like I was wearing giant clown pants if I found a pair that fit my waist...

I bought two gap rouched shirts and a pair of shorts on eBay for $25. And picked up 2 cute dress shirts at a thrift shop for a buck a piece!

Re: Maternity Clothes

I went to OUAC when we took my DD to the neuro last Friday and they had a sale on their maternity stuff. Since everyone here has been talking about them, I got a gap skirt and pair of capris.

Re: Maternity Clothes

I got rid of a lot of my maternity stuff thinking that we were done, so when the kids consignment sale went to 50-75% off, I got some tops for work for $3 or less each, and a Motherhood outfit with pants and top for $5. I also got two bathing suits since we go to the beach a lot in the summers, and so I'll need to dress appropriately! I have to look and see what I still have to see if I need anything else...
