    I’m not there yet (due in two weeks), but I’m pretty sure I’ll do the same thing. No shame in that! You created a whole city in your stomach for a single occupant. Obviously it’ll take time to get your body back!

    Although I am back to my pre-preg weight, everything is different! I can hardly button my pre-preg pants, which makes them super uncomfortable to sit in all day. I’ve been wearing dresses (those I can fit into and I live in Florida so it’s still appropriate temperature-wise) or first tri-pants, without the full panel, until I buy a pair or two in a size up 🙁

    I’m going to have to lose an addtional 10-20 pounds to fit back into my old clothes, I think. Boo.

    Yeah, still wearing them! I can’t spend the money on new pants yet! I really need to start working to get in my old pants, though.

    This post makes me feel better. I just started work again yesterday and I’m in my maternity pants. They’re the only thing that fit me comfortably right now.  I can squeeze into my old pants (work and jeans) but they’re skin tight and leave quite the muffin top. Not cute.

    @BoraBora:  Wow, right now I’m the only vote for bought new pants. After my first baby, I went immediately after leaving the hospital, to go to the store to buy bigger pants. Baby was still in the hospital under the bilibubin lights for jaundice. Being pregnant wasn’t fun or happy for me so I was more than ready to get into normal clothes.
