FYI: This is going to be a rant.
I'm at the 12 week mark, and very few of my pants fit me because of this unfortunate combo:
a) I lost so much weight from morning sickness
b) I'm showing early
The only pants that do work are my most low-rise ones, and then they are:
a) Comfortable because they don't constrict my belly
b) Falling off because I don't have a butt anymore
So despite the fact that I already bought two Bella Bands, which are:
a) Not as convenient as I thought
b) Not as comfortable as I wish
I set out to buy a pair or two of maternity jeans. Which was drama because:
a) So few stores actually carry them
b) If they do carry them they are too short for me; I need a 34" inseam, not the standard 32"
c) They cost a million dollars
I searched the internet, hoping to score a pair of Sevens or Citizens of Humanity on sale, not realizing that:
a) Even on sale, most run $150+
b) I am not morally opposed to spending $100 on jeans, but I AM NOT spending $200
I drove all the way to and around Macon, and could not find anything that either:
a) Fit me in length
b) Was reasonably priced
Defeated, I returned home, reevaluated my spending priorities, and hit up Gap and Old Navy Maternity online. Bingo.
a) 34" inseam available at both
b) Both are having big sales right now
Are they as cute as the designer ones I crave? No. But they are long, dark, lean, and $25, and that's enough for now. Maybe when I get my tax return......
You may be asking yourself, why not just buy them in the store? Well, that's because none of the Gap(s) and Old Navy(s) I shopped in carried the maternity lines. Ughhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhh.
BTW: If you are willing to shell out the dough, here is an awesome place to shop: Sierra Maternity.
