  • Targets not bad...hit the clearance racks first. I got a bunch of stuff at Old Navy...again, hit the clearance rack. You can sometimes get lucky and get pants for like 5-10 dollars at old navy. Sometimes Motherhood has some good clearanced out tops and pants. Good Luck.

  • I didn't have a ton of money either to spend on maternity clothes. I found alot of really good condition maternity clothes off craigslist.com you just need to look in the free section or under kids section and you can find some really good stuff for cheap. Or you could try the salvation army something like that. If you are in desperate need they have crisis pregnancy centers everywhere just about and if you go and talk to someone they will give you free coupons to go and buy stuff from the stores. good luck!

  • These are great patterns and requires only a straight stitch and basic sewing knowledge. If you don't sew, ask you mother or aunt or a neighbor or friend who sews.

  • Old Navy has pretty good sales and if there isn't one near you, you can shop online. You can use a belly band so that you don't need mat pants.
    Also. I don't know what kind of clothes you wear or your style, but I was able to wear almost all my sweats just under my belly for the whole pregnancy....you might be able to do that.

  • i bought most of my maternity cloth on ebay. because like you said, you wont wear them for long. i didnt feel the need of spending way too much on those cloth either.

  • I've gotten almost all of my clothes from Old Navy- the sales are amazing. But Target also has really cute relatively cheap maternity clothes. Goodluck!

  • I am having the same problem, I went to Walmart, horrible selection, and they were all summer clothes, and who wants to buy walmart clothes for $30 +++ bucks.... I also went to Kohls, Old Navy, and same thing summer clothes, I live in CT so I need winter clothes right now. I did go to Target and bought 2 pairs of pants they were much more than I wanted to buy $27 bucks each but I feel so much better wearing something that fits.... I also had a horrible time finding bra's and went to my new fav store.... Burlington Coat Factory cheap bras $8 bucks!!! So check them out!!!!! There clothes were OK, and I do the ebay thing!!!!
