Did you try the pants with just the waistband? At MotherHood Maternity they have "full belly" ones that come all the way up, that way nothing is pushing on your belly.

I use the bella band they have them at Target called BeBand there... Anyway I just leave my reagular jeans undone, and put the band over them. It works pretty good most of the time.

RUBBER BANDS!  I had to!  wrap it through the button hole first, then around the button itself

It'll keep your pants up, and it will keep you from having to buy pants so soon!

During my pregnancies I was worked at places where I had to wear skirts (my own, so I could choose style), but I would get long ones (w/elastic waistbands) and hike them over my belly and wear a shirt/sweater over top.   Not pants, but a comfy option, too.

I have/had the same problem! I dont know how comfy you would find it but i bought jeans and pants that fit me well, and then i just either folded the panel down or pushed it down below my belly. I couldnt stand having anything on my stomach it just made it look more like rolls than a baby bump. Then i just wore like long shirts or tanks under shirts to cover the panel.

When I was just starting to outgrow my pre-pregnancy jeans, I would leave them unbuttoned and use a rubber band to keep them up. When I started buying maternity pants, I found the under-belly pants were great for when you were just starting to show. Once my belly got bigger, the full panel, or secret fit (I believe that's what Motherhood called it) were the most comfortable. The under-belly is also great for post-pregnancy while you're waiting to get back into your regular pants.

I used belly bands over my regular (unbuttoned) pants for awhile and they worked.  Here is a link: http://www.motherhood.com/Product.asp?Product_Id=930660111&MasterCategory_Id=MC32j

I also did the rubber band trick, thread through the pants button hole then around the button.

Take a hair elastic and loop it over the button, through the button hole, and back over the button. It gives you a little extra room.
