My First Maternity Clothing Shopping Spree

Sunday morning my hubbie and I woke up, went to IHOP, and visited the Motherhood Maternity Outlet in Secaucus, NJ. My bump has gotten considerable larger and I can't fit into any of my pants. Of course, I have a load of dresses, so that won't be an issue. On Friday at work I had to walk around with my pant unzipped because I couldn't function with the button pressing into my belly. Anyway, here are my purchases.

My Top 10 Favorite Maternity Dresses + 1 Coat

The time is soon approaching when my bludgeoning belly will not fit any of my "regular" clothes. I've already given up wearing pants; unless they are entirely made of spandex or lycra. I began my search for fashionable maternity dresses- yes only dresses because this is the garment I wear the most. I plan to wear dresses for most of my pregnancy because its easy - one garment, tights, cute flats and a few accessories.  I've searched the web and compiled a list of my top ten favorite maternity dresses. Enjoy!
