    What Do You Need to Do?

    The message board you're used to will be closing in the coming weeks. While many of your boards will be making the move to our new home, your posts will not. Want to keep a discussion going?

    Alrighty! I broke out my maternity pants yesterday. I was getting to tired of using the rubber band trick on all my pants so I said 'hell with it'! They are still a little bit baggy on me (but not for much longer) - however - they are SO much more comfy! it!

    I'm right there w ya! I got 2 pairs a cpl weeks ago! Im 13 wks. Rubber bands & hair ties are just annoying & I felt they were going to snap everytime I sat down.
    At least they look better than years ago!
    Good luck!

    I just bought my first maternity outfit yesterday!! I am still in my regular jeans but they are getting a little uncomfortable.

    I stayed in my pre-pregnancy clothes as long as I possibly could! I used a Be Band and wore my "regular" jeans even when I couldn't zip them even a little! I couldn't dream of getting them on now, but I still am not crazy about the maternity pants. They are just too baggy in the legs and behind! BUT, I do like the elastic waist - that is way more comfortable!!
