    Hubs is away and will only be getting back 2 weeks before im due.

    Now, i kinda need your help - us all being girls etc maybe you have thought about the same thing...

    I know im not going to go down to my pre pregnancy bod anytime soon - but i dont want to look like a frump...esp as id have been away from my hubby for such a long period of time.

    It will be easy for me to stay in my dressing gown after the bubs is here but i want to make an effort most days but have nothing to wear...

    Are you girls living in leggings afterwards...? :shrug:

    I dont know what type of clothes to invest in after, i dont want to look like a scruff :( Not going to spend loads but just a few nice things i can pop on and look half decent will be nice.

    What are you girls thinking of wearing those months after giving birth or am i just going insane? :wacko:

    Hi hun!

    I was just thinking of staying in my leggings and causal tops, I will have to pop out and buy a few new things I guess but I think I will be mainly living in PJ's for a little while after the birth. Hubby will not think no different of you, Your carrying his child...It's beautiful! :hugs::hugs::hugs::hugs:

    Yeah Primark is the best idea there is no point in spending loads on tops if your wanting to loose a lot of weight :)

    Im just going to get cheap plain tops because they will go to waste once I have lost the weight again.

    No make up and bed head is not a nice look on me either lol, But he is your hubby and he LOVES you :hugs: xx

    I am hoping my OH looks just as rough as me afterwards anyway! I may have post-preg body but he will be having sleepless nights too so is likely to look pretty ropey too lol

    Why buy a new wardrobe for temporary? I'm doing what I've done in the past cause it works: wear the maternity clothes! Then ease back into the pre pregnancy clothes.. Its like reverse from getting into maternity :) IDK, I'd rather save my money for after I get my prepregnancy - or close to it - body back and can buy something to wear for a long time :)

    I carried on wearing my maternity clothes until I could fit back into my regular ones. I bought a few extra bits in a couple of sizes larger than usual, but nothing much. I feel a lot better about myself when I've had a hair cut, or had facial - that kind of thing - rather than clothes (plus it means I get some time to relax while I'm being pampered! :D)

    Early in my pregnancy and actually just a little while ago, I'd bought some regular clothing one size larger. I'll be wearing mostly that and my maternity clothes. Fortunately, my DH thinks I look hot in sweats and sporty clothes!

    I'm with you - my hubby will love me whatever I look like (just as yours will!) - but I'd like to make some effort to look put together! That might go out the window once Umlaut is here though!
