I don't care how much you are willing to spend on cute maternity denim, or how much you loved it the first 7 months of being pregnant, EVERYTHING CHANGES in your third trimester. Suddenly, pants that worked before, cause un-due pain and discomfort.... no thanks! Even going up a size doesn't work because jeans still tend to pinch right where the actual denim meets the comfy elastic waistline... plus your pants will fall down.
(I kind of forgot about this fun little pregnancy fact from my first time around the block, but in the last few weeks, my 'favorite' jeans and pants have been reminding me. Errr....)
So, I went on a mission to find some comfy and stylish third-trimester jeans, denim leggings, jeggings... whatever you want to call it.... that were stretchy enough to be comfortable, but substantial and concealing enough that I don't have to wear a tunic or long top (like with tights or leggings.... I have TONS of those). Since 'jeggings' are so popular right now in just about every age group and price spectrum in the fashion world, I was hopeful.
