The Best Maternity Jeans

I think I've found the best maternity jeans in the world...well, the best ones in my price range anyway. I know some people pay over $200 for designer maternity jeans, but my budget is a bit smaller. I've been walking around for weeks and having to pull my pants up about every 5 steps. I intended to make do with the jeans I already had from before, but I couldn't stand it anymore. I went to Motherhood Maternity yesterday and tried on their Secret Fit Belly style jeans, and they are awesome! I wore them today, and I've only had to pull them up a couple of times. I took some pics just in case anyone else is pregnant out there and in the same predicament...

Jon was in the bathroom getting ready for work this morning before I left for the dentist. I tried to take a pic in the bedroom (because Jon would make fun of me if he saw me taking photos of myself), but the lighting is terrible in there. When I got home and had the house to myself, I took pics in the bathroom where the lighting is better. I also used my new tripod that Jon gave me for Christmas...it's really quite handy. These are the bootcut style, and they actually come in petite too!

Here's a belly shot.

I cropped my head off because I had a really goofy look on my face. I always have a goofy look when I'm trying take a good photo....it's very frustrating. So I've decided that from now on, whenever I'm in a pic, I'm going to make a deliberately silly face. At least that way, I can say I meant to look stupid.

Another great thing about these jeans is the back pockets. I don't know if you're aware of this, but most maternity jeans have teeny tiny pockets that sit quite high on the booty. I didn't realize this until my 9th month with Savy when Jon very tactfully pointed out that, "Those little bitty pockets sure do make your a$$ look big." On these jeans, the back pockets are big, and they are situated low on the booty, so it doesn't make a bad situation worse. If you buy these, do buy them a little snug...they tend to "grow" because they're 2% spandex and very stretchy.

Savy saw me making funny faces at the camera and wanted to get in on the fun.

Then I wanted to try to take a nice pic of the two of us, but she still wanted to be silly.

Savy had a good day at preschool, and I got to go to the gym this afternoon. I'm so glad to be off this week!

Are you SURE there aren't twins in there???:) Look good!

You do look hot! :-) Do you need maternity clothes? I know my pants would be really long on you, but I still have some shirts that you can have since you'll be preggo in the summer. Just let me know!

How many more weeks until we can know what sex Baby Reed is? I'm excited!

Thanks for the offer, but I thought (seeing as how I'm going to be burning up this summer) I'll probably spend most of my time in my underwear :)

We'll probably find out the gender in early March...it'll probably be too early at my next visit in February.
