Help! Maternity Clothes...

Apparently by child # 5 you start showing by 9 weeks. Or I am just particularly chubby in my belly area. Or I am just bloated, I don't know.

But the fact of the matter is I have no cute maternity clothes. I kept nothing after Brenley because we weren't sure we were having more. I would love to borrow my sisters' cute maternity clothes, but my SIL beat me to pregnancy by 2 months and has almost all of them. Bad timing! I am having a hard time spending a lot of money on one single pregnancy that is definitely my last and need some ideas.

I probably don't need much in the way of pants, because so many of my pants are low rise and my shades undershirts make my shirts cover part of my belly, but I need shirts. Especially right now while I am in the stage of "is she, or isn't she?" My sister Rebecca had a cute shirt that said,"we're hungry!" and Crystal had one that just said, "yes, I'm pregnant!" These have been leant to other people. I can find them online, but they are not cheap.

SO I need ideas. Has anyone been shopping and seen bargains on these types of things? Send me a line if you have seen anything, or have other ideas. Thanks in advance!

9 people know I love comments!:

way cute blog change. yeah i say splurge on a couple fab things you love and wear them tons. you'll feel better about the whole thing if you feel like you look good target has stuff on clearance all the time. ross has maternity wear. and so does JCpenny's outlet at AZ mills. check it out. they get some cute stuff in for cheap.

GOOD LUCK!
and i started looking prego before it was official with number 6. there is no hiding it. plus it makes you sicker to squeeze into tight clothes and we stop sucking it in. comfort is more important than looks at some point!

GOOD LUCK!

The old navy out here by me has maternity. I picked up a few things(last time)on clearance for a couple bucks each. My theory is if you have 2 pair of pants that you really like you will always feel good no matter what shirt you wear! So i like to buy a good pair of pants and go cheap on the rest. I might have some clothes for you also. I will check!

Go to the used baby stores. Especially the one in Scottsdale has the designer ones for cheap. I guess you should have kept some from Bren, you knew you weren't done yet!

Sorry, I started a blog for my exodus tribe which was Simeon and I guess that stayed as my user name. All fixed now!
