What's The Deal With Maternity Pants?!

When I was pregnant with Emily, I had a cute pair of capri pants that had elastic in the back waistband but were straight (normal looking) in front. The button to the elastic came off and my pants were falling down, in FRANCE, no less!

Yesterday, a similar thing happened to a pair of jeans - thankfully, I was at home this time. But, it made me wonder what is going on with maternity clothes!? Anyone else have an interesting experience with maternity clothes?! :)

I had that problem as well, constantly hitching up my pants, that looked otherwise like they fit perfectly. I had a couple of skirts that I wore alot just because I didn't have that problem. I sympathize, but have no remedy for you! ;-)

Ahh I remember those days. I only had a couple pairs of pants that really stayed up well. And one of those were the capris you gave me. Unfortunatley the only pair of jeans that I found to stay up had the big old belly panel. most of my pants has runs in the waist band for constantly hiking them up. I hope you can figure something out for the rest of your pregnancy.

No advice, but a story: I inherited all of my sister's maternity clothes when I was pregnant with Maddie. I had two pairs of jeans that had already suffered through her four pregnancies and were on their way for my third, so seven pregnancies.

One day I squatted down to do something and the second I did it, both knees popped out and the back seat seam split open all at the same time.

:) So glad I was at home for that. The second pair treated me to the same behaviour, though not at the same time. So guess who got to go out and buy herself a couple of new pairs of maternity jeans? I had to have another baby just to get my money's worth out of the pants! But then Michelle went ahead and had another baby, so I guess they got used a bit too.

Hope you find what you're looking for!
