maternity closet

I just thought I'd mention how incredibly blessed I've felt this fifth pregnancy in the area of maternity clothes.

If you've been pregnant, you know that once you pass a certain point, there's no going back - you need something that fits and is comfortable.  And that you don't have to unbutton every time you go to sit down!

A few weeks after I found out I was pregnant, Jeremy took me to Old Navy, just he and I - and bought me a few new maternity things and was really sweet about it... I found a couple shirts, a skirt, and a dress that I love.  I had long since given my maternity stash away after Annie was born four years ago.

Then I bought two Bellabands on ebay for the price of one so I could wear my regular jeans for longer.  I highly recommend these... I love them so much!  And look forward to wearing them afterwards for those pants that still will not fit for other reasons. ha.   And that was the end of my brand-new maternity clothes shopping spree. 

Then three awesome friends who have each delivered sweet baby boys in the last 8 months, donated to my cause... thank you, friends.  And I've scored some great shirts and a pair of jeans at Value Village too!  I found some things I just love for super cheap and you wouldn't know they were gently used either.  Then this weekend, I scored two more shirts for $1 each at a super cold winter moving sale.  I'm a bargain girl anyways, I always buy clearance if I can and can't remember the last time I paid full price for clothes for any of us.  I have never spent less in a pregnancy than this one, and I'm so thankful how the Lord has truly provided for me in this area.  He didn't have to.  It's frivolous, really.  But I'm so grateful!

Plus, I'm finding that a lot of the shirts and dresses I had already in my closet are cut to fit my growing belly too, and I love that.  So here's to three and a half more months of clothes that fit! 

I don't own this shirt, but I love the style and think I'd snatch it up in a heartbeat if it graced a clothing rack near me. (Preferably a clearance one.)

* P.S *  I just tracked down the above shirt and it costs $68! (And that does not include her earrings, jeans, and cute hair style.) You've got to be kidding me.  This cute on the cheap mama says no thanks!

  1. EEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEK!!!! $68! YOUCH!!!!! Yes I agree. NO THANKS!!!! $68 is probably the cost of most or all the clothes in my closet from Goodwill. Yes, I am a bargain girl too, so I'm with you. Love the shirt and the color, but not the price. Congratulations on all the maternity finds and deals from Old Navy, Ebay, friends, and clearance racks. I love it when you can score a whole lot of great big finds for very little.
    In Christ,

  2. I love when God provides the fun stuff too...He is always so thoughtful!
