  • Yes, I did. But I am also very long torsoed and over weight. So I am sure this played a factor.

  • I only weighed 122 when my youngest was born at 36 weeks. He was 6 pounds 3 ounces. My normal weight was 115. I had been very ill during the pregnancy.

  • Yes, but, only because my sweatpants had elastic waists. LOL

  • Well pre pregnancy I weighed 117 and gained 34 lbs. So I went from wearing a size 1 to a 5 during pregnancy. Although I gained 34 lbs I was very small. I had my dd @ 35 wks due to a fall but even that late in my pregnancy ppl still thought I was 4 mths prego. I also was extremely sick all the time (morning sickness 24/7) so maybe that had something to do w/ it.

  • Undies - same (just wore them under the tummy).

    T-shirts - same - I had long stretchy shirts that made it to the very end.

    Pants - no

    bra - no

    dresses and skirts - no

  • ProudMamaMia... with being "extremely sick" all the time, how the heck did you manage to gain 34 pounds?? I was soooo sick during my pregnancies and I was under my pre-pregnancy weight when I was done. This time I was sick only til 22 weeks and now at 34 weeks I have managed to gain a whopping 8 pounds!! But 34 pounds sounds like great weight gain, especially for someone that was so sick!

    I didnt gain any weight during my first two pregnancies but no, I could not have warn my pre-pregnancy clothes becuase my belly was hard and firm and there would have been no way my pants could have fit. I do wear warm ups with draw strings because they are low rise but that doesnt really count as my regular clothes because although I did wear them before pregnancy... i typicall wore jeans

  • I couldn't wear my regular clothes after three months. LOOL. I have narrow hips and no place for the baby to hide. They just popped right out in front and my clothes didn't fit.
