Ok..so it has been a long time since I bought maternity clothes..I don't really even know if I bought any with my boys b/c I was sooo big..and that was 7 years ago..
So before I was pregnant I was wearing between a size 8 and 10...I think..a lot of my jeans are different sizes. And all clothes fit different..I think most of my jeans came from The Buckle if anyone is used to those sizes..I just threw them on not paying attention to the size. But now all my jeans are getting too small and the rubber band thing just aint working.. I think I am gaining most of my weight in my belly but I think my ass is gettn a bit bigger too:(.. So I just need help trying to figure out what size I am supposed to look for in Maternity clothes..if it's the same size I usually wear with the expandable belly thing or what..
I don't have a whole lot of money but I think I might drag myself to the mall today to see if I can't find at least 1 pair of capris or something..I don't really want to wear sweats and elastic stuff the whole pregnancy..I love my jeans..Any help would be appreciated..thanks

if you were an 8-10 before your probably a medium, because I was a large at 12-14. Also if you don't have alot of money you should go to Old Navy if yours has a maternity section. They ALWAYS have really good sales.

probably a size large will get you through your pregnancy, because that is what size i was before i got pregnant. The pants with the higher band i just would fold down until i got big enough to leave them alone and now i actually push that part below my belly button so it doesnt make my stomach itch...lol

I say target too! They have some really cute stuff. I am NOT a fan of Walmart maternity clothes - they are AWFUL!! JMO!
A lot of the shirts now days though that are in you can wear as maternity shirts just buy them bigger and that will save you some cash too!
