April Mom - November 11

OK ladies I need to vent here. I am 20 weeks pregnant. I've gained 10 pounds. I have been wearing maternity pants for a while and I think they are great. When I wear maternity shirts I look 10 times bigger than when I wear non maternity shirts. It's crazy. I am so fed up with all those maternity shirts. This past weekend I bought this really cute shirt on sale. I didn't try it on (I know I am to blame). Was going to wear it today. I put it on and wanted to die---I looked like I was 8 months pregnant. Then I put on one of my non-matenity shirts and I don't even look pregnant. Anyone want to vent with me?

It's weird how much bigger those maternity shirts make you look. I have a couple from Old Navy that aren't too roomy though--I just like them because they are long enough to hide my unb___toned pants or my elastic on maternity pants. You're right--some of them are ridiculous, but I figure I'll appreciate that a few months from now when they're all I can fit into. :)

I hear you! I am 26 weeks and have gained about 15 pounds. The shirt I wore today makes me look like I'm due any day. I feel like I'm wearing a tent, but hate to buy more shirts because they cost so much. My normal clothes are a little to snug, so I'm stuck feeling huge, when I'm really not.

I KNOW. I'm 17 weeks, gained 13 pounds. Been wearing maternity pants for a while, but am still in my old shirts (the bigger ones). Unless you knew I was pregnant, you'd probably just think I was a little plump around the middle. I'm not wearing maternity shirts until its a must.

I am wearing my husband's shirts. I did have some maternity shirts last time, but they did not make me look like I was wearing a tent. Where are you getting your maternity shirts?

If they are that big on you, you probably don't need them yet. I went out and bought a few of those "surplus" tops for this in between stage. I'll be able to wear them when I am no longer pregnant. They are cute because they are tight enough to show off my bump and they don't ride up over it like my old tight tops.

Victoria Secrets has the best T-Shirt ever that I wear as a maternity top. I just got it one size bigger. It's called the "s_xy wide v-neck tee" and it's really nice and stretchy and soft. I love wearing them and I got them for when I'm not pregnant too. They show your belly nice and they are long enough to cover the tops of your maternity pants. I am almost in my 24th week and I still wear mine..love them!

Yes i feel your pain i'm also 20 weeks and i hate hate hate the maternity shirts. I was a size 2 before i got pregnant and i love old navy maternity pants and also at the store Ross I found some pants but shirts is hard. I have a small belly and i'm about 5'3 and small everywhere else. I have actually had to leave the mall cause I started to cry over not being able to get shirts that where cute and fit good. Good Luck. Due April 10th

Im from Australia and here i cant even buy a maternity shirt unless i want to look 50 years older than i am coz they all look like they are made for old people and are all ugly. Except 1 shop "Pumpkin Patch" but thats way to expensive. So im stuck with wearing ugly baggy shirts i hate it coz i wanna show off my bump.


hey there - November 24

I'm an April mom too. I tried on some maternity shirts a few weeks ago just for fun, and I know exactly what you mean. They're RIDICULOUSLY HUGE! There are some sold nowadays that are form fitting because shouldn't we love to show off our beautiful pregnant figure? I haven't worn any maternity tops yet, just maternity bottoms. I'm hoping I can just get away with wearing oversized regular shirts until the very end. They're a dime a dozen at thrift stores anyway.

I agree... I can't find too much maternity to fit, even the pants are a little big, but at least I can manage that. *i'm 22wks* But I still can't find a shirt, it's good at least that alot of stores are carrying longer t-shirts . sweaters etc.. that is a new "style" so I've just shopped around reg. stores, I will not go into a marternity store for tops AGAIN
