Did you/do you have a lot of maternity cloths or only a few?

How many shirts/pants/dresses?

I am just wondering how few I can get away with having....I HATE spending money on them. I have found about 5 shirt, 3 pairs of nice black dress all at the thrift store...on top of sweat pants and large t-shirts.

I am a SAHM...the only place I ever go is to school store or church...

What do you think..more?

  • I have some stretchy pants that I can wear through most of my pregnancy. I also have elastic skirts that I wear in my pregnancy. Mostly I just purchase some tops. I always check the clearance section in the stores and buy them if they are only a few dollars. I probably have one pair of shorts, one pair of jeans, five or six long sleeve tops and 4 or five short sleeve. Oops, I do have several more tops. I am nursing and can't find any regular tops to fit, so I bought several new maternity tops for church. But I have 'collected' all this over four pregnancies. I have about 5 regular skirts and 3 pairs of regular pants I can usually wear through my pregnancy (until the end).

  • I think you'll probably be fine. See how it goes. I hated spending money on that also.

  • I think you'll be fine. You don't have to just wear maternity clothes! I wore a lot of regular clothes during my pregnancies..stretchy yoga pants and stuff
