Maternity Clothes

Most of my regular clothes are still fitting (sort of :smileytongue:) but I've been looking into maternity clothes because even my "fat" jeans are getting a little uncomfortable by the end of the day.

I would do flat boots with leggings and a tunic. Otherwise if you live somewhere warm of course flip flops. But if I remember right you now live in Idaho so probably not flip flop weather.:smileywink:

My favorite maternity clothes were leggings and dresses. I hated having something tight on my stomach, it was OK in the begining but then it was just too much pressure. My stomach got very large though so a lot of women don't have this problem. But yeah a nice big dress (sundress style) with a sweater and leggings was what got me through the winter last year:)

I also got two maternity tops that I felt really gorgeous in (1 dress from pre-pregnancy fit me and I felt the same in) so that I was able to go out on a date/to a Christmas party/etc and feel pretty. I think that is important because eventually you will just feel like a hippo and it is nice to have at least one outfit where you still feel pretty :D

I also had a really warm maternity jacket. It fit me until about 37 weeks which was great. It was so nice to have a jacket that looked nice and fitted (and which I could zip up!) but which was really warm.

I really like jeans with a more fitted top (or one that ties above the bump)-makes me feel a little less huge:)

I typically wear boots with my leggings.

I like that look too but not too much my style since I look kinda goofy, but I still try it!

In regards to shoes... don't invest in any new ones know... you're feet are most likely going to grow.

I mostly got stuff off of the Clearance rack at motherhood maternity and since I was mostly pregnant during the summer (and I wasn't working), I mostly wore (mat)
