They are too adorable. I cant wait to see more. And the new fabric line I just love. I had my list of what I wanted to order and it looks like I will be adding more. I love the summer colorway. I was thinking of decorating my daughters room with it. Thanks for sharing and I look forward to seeing more!

Have any of you tried these Prenatal cradles? I'm thinking of buying one for my wife, but I wanted to get some opinions first.

Try wearing your jeans with a pony tail holder looped through the button hole. It works wonders. Just make sure your shirt is long enough to cover it up.
I bought some cute clothes, including a nice dress for my grandma's funeral. I figured I could just wear it for Thanksgiving and Christmas. Well, it was looking sort of tight last week and I'm wondering if it'll make it until Christmas. A lot of my clothes are getting snug even though they are "maternity clothes". There is only one baby in there, it's not like I'm having two or three or more.


Bless your heart--I remember those days, and how I hated every minute of it. I, too, grew out of my maternity clothes way before my baby was due. I made it through my last pregnancy with one pair of capri pants, a huge white shirt (can you say sail?), and a really comfy stretchy dress. It was so stretchy and comfy in fact that I still wear it now--even though I no longer have the extra 40 pounds, fits like a regular dress. I sure wish I could remember where I got it (dorothy perkins??)--it was definitely a pregnancy find!
Good luck to you!


Hi Kris!
I couldn't find maternity clothes past a size 12 when I was pregnant and I was so sad. Plus size women aren't having sex,apparently,so who needs to clothe them??
I asked a co-worker who was my size,where she shopped when she was pregnant. She said she bought clothes one or two sizes larger. Woohoo Wal-Mart. I was buying cutie pie tops and mostly cotton pants (not super stylish but oh so comfy!!) Some of the shoulders were a little big so a seamstress that I knew sewed in little straps that snapped around my bra strap so the shoulders wouldn't fall down.
It was awesome!!!!

I still wish there could've been some cute maternity pants in my size that weren't $100 but I survived it.
Wear pants that stay up even if they are Wal-Mart cotton pants. You won't be exposed!!
Good luck!!


Ahh man. I am so there with you. The full panel jeans I bought I have to keep lifting up. because they are too big, but the little demi pane's keep falling down so I get plumber crack showing. And my crack is not one anyone wants to see in the grocery store.

On top of it I am short, so capri pants fit me like regular pants. My Mom has had to shorten four pairs of pants for me, and now I don't even know how long I will be able to wear them.

Thanks for making me feel not so alone in this.


Here's an idea. Buy "normal" clothes a size or two (or three) larger. ;)

I am a big girl and they make very few maternity clothes in my size. (Evidently large women are in no danger of getting pregnant.) What they do sell is jeans and t-shirts.

Now, I am not young, and I never were either jeans or t-shirts. I could see no reason to start while pregnant -- I findboth uncomfortable.

After months of hunting, and crying, and hunting and crying...in desperation I stopped into a "big girls" specialty shop and tried on some of the top of the range clothes. I was ecstatic! They fit and were comfortable -- and I still looked like me!

Not only that -- they were cheaper than even the seediest of the maternity clothes I'd seen!


ohhhh man. it feels like only yesterday that I had those very same dilemmas. (well, the baby's only 6 months old, so it wasn't too far off from yesterday.)

I had lots of summer clothes, but bella was born at the end of october, and I was in the same boat - I didn't necessarily want to spend money on new warmer clothes. so I took my cute muumuu-ish dresses (do you have some? try target liz lange) and wore them over some cheap stretch pants. I even went so far as to use a skinny "dress" scarf as a belt, under the belly. now, I'm sure that I looked ridiculous, but in my mind, I looked pretty good. and that's all that really mattered at that point, THINKING I looked good.

but I really feel for you. it might be time to embrace...THE PANEL. yes. the giant stomach panelled pants. godspeed.



Here in Ottawa we have a maternity-clothes rental place. I was way past the maternity stage when it opened (too bad for me!), but from what I've heard it sounds ideal for the busy corporate mom-to-be, or someone who wants high-end/modern clothes and doesn't see the point in buying it all outright.


Thanks for making me laugh! I really needed that. I am only 14 weeks pregnant, but I'm already fighting the daily "What do I wear today?" battle. I am showing so much earlier than I was last time, and, since I never really lost my baby weight (O.k. I lost it, then put it and some exta back on) many of my maternity clothes are already fitting weirdly or not at all. Also, when I opened the tub of maternity clothes, some of them made me physically nauseous to look at. Why didn't anyone tell me I was dressing like Nancy Reagan the last time I was pregnant? So, now I'm faced with the dilemma: do I spend a small fortune on clothes, or establish a seven day outfit rotation? E-bay, huh? Good idea!


I really liked the Land's End maternity clothes.


old navy?
