I would love to know this too, as mine is coming up in about 10 days!  I have a gray maternity dress and a black maternity dress and I was considering wearing one of those with perhaps a “statement” piece of jewelry.  Not sure I want to buy another dress so close to giving birth!

I bought this on sale from the GAP: http://www.gap.com/browse/product.do?cid=6035&vid=1&pid=777924

I like it, but it’s a little snug around my butt so I’m debating whether or not to wear it (my shower is this Sunday). Either way, I imagine I’ll wear a basic black dress with “statement” jewelry like chicagowife suggested πŸ™‚

And heels. Last (and one of the only) time I’ll wear heels during pregnancy, but if we’re taking photos I want my calves to look nice. Watch me tip over.

Mines not for another 2 months – so one month before the baby’s due.  My stomach is going to be ginormous but I’m hoping that it’ll be warm enough to wear a sundress.  I can’t wait until the weather is warm because even though I feel a little bigger at the moment I now hate pants.

I have worn two different dresses… a purple one from Motherhood Maternity that’s more formal, but I threw a black cardigan over it, and a gray one from Ann Taylor Loft.  I looked into renting one from rentmaternitywear dot com, but these were both pretty inexpensive so I decided to buy them.

One thing I made sure of (that may or may not apply to others) is to have longer sleeves. A few photos recently have made me realize that my arms are no longer as toned as they once were, and that’s one reason I like my slimming little long-sleeved black dress!

Sundress, cardigan, flip flops. You couldn’t pay me to wear heels while I was pregnant!

Ours was a co-ed shower (the Superbowl of Baby Showers, with the superbowl playing throughout & all baby games related to betting pools or sports skills) a good number of toddlers present as well, so I was super casual: long-sleeve white v-neck, jeans, & my green Lambeau Field jacket (we were Packer supporters).
