  • I got mine from my sister, I never bought any money on maternity cloths. I did buy maturnity bras thought, and some long tank tops and dresses that were worked from when I was pregnant and when I was not.

  • I got a few things secondhand and bought a few things at Motherhood Maternity. I thought their clothes were kinda pricey for something I was only gonna wear for a few months though.

  • I bought a few things at Motherhood Maternity - if you hit the sale racks you can find good deals, and some of their basics like jeans and simple blouses are decently priced. Anything that was "fashion forward" or involved lots of fabric (like dresses) was kind of expensive.
    Depending on your size, you can just buy bigger clothes from your usual department. I'm pretty petite, I just bought some L and XL shirts from a consignment store, and once my waist expanded past the rubber-band-on-the-buttons trick I wore mostly big sweaters over leggings - they stretch to fit any size and I can even still wear a few of the sweaters now :)

  • I bought at Motherhood, Kohl's and Target. I also got some at Goodwill and other thrift/2nd hand stores. I didn't think they were any more expensive than regular clothes - but for the amount of time you are able to wear them, it is expensive! I started wearing maternity toward the end of my 1st trimester/beginning of 2nd.

  • I guess i cant help you. I dont wear Maternity clothes from any where unless they are trendy from Mimi maternity but i didnt have to buy any for this pregnancy because i wore all my pre pregnancy clothes the whole 8 months (still pregnant). I wear size 2 American Eagle Jeans, wear size medium tank tops and shirts, sweaters and jackets. Im 5'0 even and i weighed 120lbs before pregnancy. I am 147lbs now but thats all baby, water weight and other stuff. im all belly really...
