So I can't find ANY pants to fit. Like blue jeans or khakis! I'm in this weird stage of bein pregnant where my regular blue jeans are toooo little but maternity are too big... What did you guys do for pants? Please help! Regularly I'm like a size 2 or sometimes 4... If that helps any!

Wow!!! You're TINY and I'm JEALOUS! LOL I've heard of a thing called a belly band (you can find it at target) and I've heard that it's supposed to help for the in between time.. But, since i've never used it, don't quote me.. Why don't you try getting jeans by just going up a size or is the bloated-ness/feeling in the belly to where that wouldn't work?

Totally no offense intended..........but anyone who's a size 2, deserves to have a rough time finding clothes to fit so she knows how  THE REST  of the population feels on a daily basis.  LOL....J/K.......J/K

I didn't post my size to be offensive, I was just putting it so hopefully someone else who was close to my size could help me... My sons first birthday party is this weekend and I would like to wear something that fit so I could look nice... I know you said no offense but obviously I'm pregnant so I get offended pretty easy- but I will just disregard you said anything at all...

Everyone laughs at me... but this has totally worked for me, especially since maternity clothes for some reason are uncomfortable to wear. I use my regular jeans (ones that still fit other than not being able to button them...) and take a rubber band & loop one side thru the button hole then put the other end of the rubberband around the button. It stretches, so it's comfortable and you're still able to wear your pants! (I know, I know, it probably sounds ghetto... but whatever works, right? LOL)

Hopefully you can find something that works for you! :)

Yeah, that's the same reason I started using rubber bands.. because I couldn't afford the actual belly band they sell... and I can get a bag of rubber bands or hair ties for less than a dollar & they do the same thing...

Try the Bella Band or Belly band. Its a band that helps when regular clothes dont fit and maternity clothes are too big its a great product and many baby and maternity places sell it! Hope that helpsexpecting baby
