Buy Any Maternity Clothes Yet?

Postby blessedwithonemore » Thu Oct 17, 2013 9:41 am

Hello all!
I am 19 + 2 days pregnant today with Baby # 3, a Boy...
I had to go out today and buy several pairs of Maternity Jeans...
:?
Now, I know that this is my 3rd baby, and I am on the heavy side to begin with...
but I look like I am due now!
8O
I only remember going up a size or two for my first pregnancy, and stayed the same with my second...
I know it is more important to be comfortable and give our bellies room to grow...
but does anyone else feel like they "popped" way too soon???

lol!
Thank you!
I guess because with my first pregnancy I was still in the professional world, 10 years younger, and many, many sizes smaller...
I don't remember being this uncomfortable...
Then my second came the very next year after that...so, by then, I was used to feeling big and uncomfortable!
:lol:
Now it's been almost 9 years since my last pregnancy...
I just thought I'd have more time!
Oh, well... that much closer to Baby time!!!!!
:D

First pregnancy I started at 130 lbs, gained 40, and wore maternity clothes around 4 months. I was all belly lol. This pregnancy I started heavier, lost 5 lbs and still had to get maternity pants around 4 month mark.
This time around I don't have room for 40 extra lbs!
It's also been 9yrs since my ds was born.....feels like a first pregnancy all over again lol.

DH: 34
DS1: age 11yrs (unplanned but wonderful surprise)
DS2: age 19 months (after ttc for 2 years)
Now expecting baby #3....surprise!

This is also my first pregnancy and I am almost 17 weeks. I had to start wearing belly bands over my pants at about week 12. I am still wearing the belly bands, but even that is uncomfortable. I bought a bunch of leggings when I was about 12 weeks, too. I thought those would last me a couple of more months at least because they have elastic waists. But, I'm wearing a pair today and am really uncomfortable. So, I bought a bunch of maternity pants on Cyber Monday. I can't wait for them to come in!

I popped really early, but my sister looked six months pregnant at 3 months, so I should have seen it coming. We are both really short, so I guess there is nowhere for the baby to go but out. :)

No shame here, I pulled my maternity clothes out when I was around 10 weeks!!! I LOVE my maternity clothes and I love my pregnant belly. This is number 3 for me and more than likely my last so I am doing my best to embrace every minute of my pregnancy. I especially love the pants that have the panyhose-like tops from motherhood maternity, it feels soooo freakin good when you just give in and pull the top of the pants up over your belly just under your boobies, it makes you feel and look incredibly unsexy, but it is oh so cozy! I remember when I was prego with DD1 I waited forever to pull the top of my pants up over my bump, but man on man did it feel good once I finally did.
