Lol I know how you feel kinda just without the belly. I'm 7 weeks along and cant fit into my nice jeans anymore...some dress pants still fit but are slowly getting tighter...i made a mess in my closet trying on all my pants....now i'm a lazy cow who doesnt want to pick all the clothes up haha.

 im with you.

im big, i have nothing to wear, i bought new maternity clothes and they are not fitted so i feel huge wearing them...whatever, i wear sweats and yoga pants still, with t shirts. i dont even care anymore.

and the bra situation- i cant either! so i went and bought a bunch of sports bras, i look flat but i love em!

Oh, sweetie we are in the same boat. I am so much bigger than I was 2 weeks ago, but I am 37 weeks along. My maternity pants are too big and baggy and none of my t-shirts fit right. *hugs*

I understand completely! I'm 28 weeks and have already gained 30 pounds and I was 20-30 pounds overweight to begin with. The only thing i like about myself is my tummy because thats the only thing thats suppose to get big lol.

I feel ya! I'm 34 weeks and I'm down to 2 shirts and 1 pair of pants. My pajamas don't even fit anymore. I have some shirts that will stretch around my belly but there is no way my boobs are getting in there. That is the only thing that doesn't make me break down crying. With my first I could never find maternity clothes because apparently woman with A cups don't get pregnant. With this one I can't find anything! I'm usually a med and I noticed that most XL tank tops will fit. Good luck!

 I know EXACTLY how you feel! I have gained too much weight.. my fault, yes I know.. but it still breaks my heart! I hate the way I look.. Looking in the mirror makes me cry! Every time! I don't even like going out in public..  I am 2 weeks away from due date.. just hang in there.. i know EXACTLY how you feel!

yeah. Moo, here too.  I am 31 weeks and already went past my "goal" of gaining a total of 30lbs. LOL. I still have 2 months to go, guess I better keep up the nutricious eating and excersize but let go of my own personal need to be at a certain number on the scale.  It will all be worth it when we look into our babies eyes!!!! Plus, the good part is that it will be summer when we have the time and energy to work off that extra padding.  Good luck to you and don't be too hard on yourself. :)

In my opinion, the cutest warm weather maternity clothes are those tank tops that are rousched(sp?) on the sides. You're supposed to have a belly to make those look cute :) I have 2 and they're about the only thing I think looks cute on me (I'm 31 weeks and am already as big as I was when I had my other DS). Oh, and those flowy bohemian style skirts are an easy fix.
