    Maternity clothes?
    FarmWife1979 posted:
    Yeah, that seems off-topic doesn't it? Except that I now a positive home pregnancy test and an appointment this week with the OB. So, having slept a few times since being pregnant with DD, I don't remember anything about where I found maternity clothes before. It'll be a little bit before I need them, but I better start looking now since I need Tall as well as plus sized maternity clothes. I am a pre-preg size 18 with a 35" inseam, so I imagine it is going to be a challenge to find a pair of maternity jeans that fit (and I hate wearing dresses).

    If anyone has any websites please let me know! I'll probably have to order in everything since there are NO maternity shops within a 2 hour radius of where I live.

    Old navy, motherhood maternity, and gap all have longs/talls. But of course you have to order them online. I understand your issues. I had the same problem when I was pregnant with Avery. Now (I'm 24weeks) stores seemed to realize that tall people get pregnant too! Congrats!!
    FarmWife1979 responded:
    Thanks Ladies! That gives me a place to start looking!

    I don't normally wear tall clothes (I'm 5'7"), but I often by tall tops- I've got long arms and big boobs and I like the way tall tops fit better. I bought tall maternity stuff from Old Navy and JCPenney- they had nicer work stuff.

    I'm by no means tall but I bought stuff for my last PG at Motherhood Maternity, JC Penney's and Old Navy.

    I lived in Target leggings when I was preggo. Threw a big t-shirt and a hooded sweatshirt over it and that was my uniform.

    Congratulations! Are you feeling "pink" or "blue" for this baby?

    FarmWife1979 replied to Haylen_WebMD_Staff's response:
    Hoping for Pink - since we already have all the girly stuff! But blue is just fine too.

    Thanks ladies! I've got a tenative due date of Nov. 4th. Probably will be a little earlier because this will be a scheduled C-section.
