Running out of things to wear to church

I'm a Lector, and at the noon Mass, we're plagued with being short-staffed till the new schedules come out. We've had numerous "dropouts" this past round of schedules. So we basically have to be "on call" for every Mass, which means I can't just go wearing the lone pair of jeans that still fit. My black dress pants that did fit, were rather uncomfortably snug last week. I have a wrap dress I could wear, but it's knee length and the weather is slated to be cool, and the only pantyhose I have are control top. I found a long skirt this afternoon, and I hope it is comfortable tomorrow. My friends think I'm nuts when I say I'm showing already, one jokes that I'm only "6 minutes pregnant". I'm sooo hoping that the couple of CRHP sisters that have offered maternity clothes can get them to me soon. The couple pieces I picked up at the women's center where I got my test are too summery for current temperatures. Sadly, I'm just so skinny and small that whatever they did have wouldn't fit me even in my 9th month. Yes, I'm whining. But I also know most of you would relate or understand. And I know that my uncomfortable state just means that this lil person is growing and things are moving forward. I'm just glad to not be green all the time anymore. Now I'm just hungry constantly and I've gained 8 pounds. Today my brother needed a ride to work, and when we got there he said "does preggo want pizza?" "yes please!" He made me a great concoction that was a combination of a couple specialty pizzas on the Papa John's menu. I told him he should submit it to corporate for marketing. I had 3 pieces of it, 2 before I left his store, and one on the way home. If I keep this up, my lounge pants won't even fit me soon.

Edit: I came home from babysitting a friend's kiddos. Tried on the skirt, and I can't zip it, plus the zipper seam is pulled out. I may have to resort to wearing that maternity outfit I snagged at the help center just for the sake of something comfortable to wear. But if I do that, I may as well wear the wrap dress, since it's the same length. *sigh*

May the road rise up to meet you.
May the wind be always at your back.
May the sun shine warm upon your face;
the rains fall soft upon your fields
and until we meet again,
may God hold you in the palm of His hand.

No I haven't heard of the survival kit. However, my friend L. did finally bring me her maternity clothes to use. So I have some things I can use, and a bunch that I will be sending back to her soon. We have another month of cooler temperatures here, so I can easily pass the sweaters and long sleeved stuff back. She did have LOTS of shorts though, so that will come in handy since I will be big and pregnant during the hot weather. I did get a nice outfit for church from a lending closet at the center where I got my test. And another friend that I gave my last few maternity items to, said she'd get them back to me, and hinted that she might pass along some of her collection (3 pregnancies, 3 sets of twins - kid you not)
