I received a funny email at work today. Here is part of it:
Am I right in assuming you are pregnant? So hope that is all going well for you. How long before you are off work?
I guess I am showing more than I thought. 🙂 Luckily, his assumption was right.
When I first started looking for maternity clothes, I was a bit discouraged. I didn’t want to spend too much money on them and they all seemed pricey. Since then, I have found my favorite places to go. I hope this helps if you ever are looking for maternity clothes.
-Friends- this is the first place to look. Friends will offer you their maternity clothes which is great. Remember this when you have a friend that is prego.
–Gap– like regular Gaps store, NEVER buy anything full price. Heck, don’t even buy anything unless it is on sale plus an additional 30%-50% off. Some of my favorite tops have come from Gap. They don’t look like typical maternity clothes and are cute. They also offer free shipping once you hit $50, but you can only return by mail.
–Old Navy– good for maternity jeans. They have different cuts that fit nicely. You can usually find a coupon as well.
–Kohl’s– I wasn’t too impressed. I found it to be more expensive than I wanted to spend on shirts and not much variety.
-KMart- surprisingly cute and very affordable. When I went, there was a $9.99 rack
These are the places I have been too so far. You should also check your closet to see what will work throughout. Long shirts are key. Also, empire waist dresses.
Here are some pictures of a few of my maternity looks so far:
jeans: Old Navy, $34.99
dress: my closet from Private Galleryshirt: Gap, price not sure, I ordered 5 and paid $50 for all 5.
capris: Old Navy from a friend!
Today was an exciting day! We had the ultrasound. I will update on Friday once we talk to the Dr. Pics to come!
