You're reminding me of the flowery dungarees I bought at a National Childbirth Trust sale and which I lived in for the last couple of months of my pregnancy. Somewhere in the UK Lib Dem campaign archives will be a picture of me wearing said dungarees on an election leaflet. Sadly I didn't get to sign off the quote attributed to me about the closure of a maternity unit, which began "As an expectant mother..." This was, of course, written by a man.

But, yes, maternity clothes are a nightmare. I really like the new trend of renting and recycling them, though, so that you have more chance of actually finding something that fits your unique shape at an affordable cost.
