I am now overflowing all of my bras except for the stretchy ones that provide no support.

Are you going to be breastfeeding your baby? If so, a good nursing bra might be the way to go for you so that you can use if afterwards, here are some ideas for you: http://www.ivillage.com/best-nursing-bras-breastfeeding/6-b-350299

If not, I think your idea of just ordering a bunch and then returning them might be the way to go. I honestly hate buying bras because they can be so pricey. You could also go into a lingerie store to get an idea on size/shape, etc and use that info for ordering online.

I do plan to breatsfeed, but I probably will be a different size by then. I guess my size will gradually go back down though, passing through all the sizes in between. Also, with my daughter, I found I could breastfeed just fine with regular bras just by pushing the cup aside.

Thanks for the link! Some of those look worth trying.

If you have a Nordstrom's near you, they have excellent bras in all sizes and can help fit you!
