Maternity clothes? pants really....

 I have an issue with being pregnant.  It's maternity pants in general!

My first pregnancy I got some hand me downs, and got some new... and ended up living in sweats and yoga pants!  My work did provide me black suit pants (thank goodness) because they had a tailor that made them fit right...

My second pregnancy, I didn't even unpack the bottoms, just used the shirts.

My issue... I'm 5'8" and all maternity pants are at least 3" too short in the legs... or are very very low rise in the waist, which doesn't work either.

Any suggestions for pants that fit?  I'm going to have to take my oldest to school this coming fall, and I don't want to show up every day in sweats... I'd like to find a few pairs that fit well...

 I also wore yoga pants when it got colder, just couldn't find anything else I liked. I have a couple of friends that got some from Gap and I believe Old Navy, they bought them on line, and loved them.

 I was going to suggest Old Navy too  because there regular pants seem to be a bit long for me....I bought a few stretchy type pants in XL that way I wasn't stuck in all Maternity pants after the baby was here.

I'd invest in a belly band! I wore this throughout my entire pregnancy. You can wear your old pants, just leave them unbuttoned and put the belly band right one over them. Here's a website, you can get them at Motherhood Maternity! :)
