My boss and team leads were incompetent. I was hired with promises of 35+ hours per week and that there was no team lead above me and I could move up quickly. There was a team lead already hired that prevented me from moving up. That team lead spread lies about me and when I brought it up to my boss she refused to go to HR and told me not to either. My other team lead constantly reminds me I'm not going got heaven
I was so happy to see that old navy carried maternity clothing while I was pregnant. I found their clothing super affordable especially compared to other maternity stores. The majority of my maternity wardrobe for both of my pregnancies came from old navy. I had 2 pairs of maternity jeans that were extremely comfortable. One had the shorter panel and the other had the longer one which was very useful the bigger I got. I also had some really comfy t-shirts and a few cute dresses. I also really liked the tank tops.
Commenters on earlier 'Mother of all' posts almost unanimously herald Seraphine as the best maternity jeans brand. Amtstevens swears: "I looked better in them than I did in my pre-pregnancy jeans! I am now pregnant with number two and relieved to be slipping back into these jeans. They are so comfy." Guayaba seconds this, saying her Seraphine jeans are: "even nicer than my normal jeans." CooperK says they work for her too, "and I'm no skinny minny." The maternity wear brand (they do breastfeeding clothes, too) was started by a French woman who honed her "fit systems" on herself during her two pregnancies. The jeans come in three lengths, and are all made in stretch denim for comfort and sag avoidance. They also do a good range of styles - here's a picture of Mad Men's January Jones, rocking their skinny grey luxe jeans (£65.00). 

ThredUp is an online consignment store, but if you do not mind purchasing pre-worn items, then this can be an excellent destination for finding affordable maternity apparel. ThredUp is actually the first place I purchased a couple of maternity items from because I could not resist the low prices. They currently have more than 3,000 maternity items listed for sale, and all are a fraction of their original retail prices.
Great store with a great selection of Maternity clothing. Last year a friend of mine was pregnant and she wears plus size clothing. She had a tough time finding plus size maternity wear until she spotted this store. There is an entire section reserved for plus size woman ranging from X to 3X. The plus size selection is great and very reasonably prices. I'm sure if this store didn't exsist, she may have had to stay indoors for the remainder of her pregnancy because she couldn't find a thing to fit her at the other maternity stores in Halifax. They also sold little trinkets such as pregnancy books, stuffed animals, fetal heart monitors and baby calenders. It's a great little store located near the escaltors between Sears on the top level.
Thyme Maternity is THE fashion brand for moms-to-be. It's where you want to go to 'bump' up your style while maxing out on comfort. Look and feel your best at every pregnancy trimester, and even after baby arrives, in maternity clothing that fits and flatters your beautiful, changing body! Thyme's full of life experience offers you valuable advice, fashion tips and product knowledge on your incredible journey during and after pregnancy.
Generally, you should buy maternity clothes in your pre-pregnancy size. As maternity clothing provides extra room around the belly and bust, it gives you the comfort you need for your changing body. If you're in between sizes or are still unsure of what size to buy, consult our maternity wear sizing chart. Take measurements around the fullest part of your bust, your hips (under your bump), and your bump circumference, and compare these numbers to the sizing chart to find your ideal fit.
If you are trying to buy on a budget (you have a baby to think about, after all!), Walmart is a great place to look. Its maternity section is brimming with dresses, tops and pants that are both fashion-forward and super affordable. We love Walmart's "Maternity Essentials" section, which has all the basics you'll need for those nine months (and beyond).
Greatly enjoy working at Thyme Maternity, interacting with customers is the best part of the job. Excellent manager and assistant manager, ongoing coaching given to me as well as the opportunity to provide coaching and leadership to other staff members. Unfortunately no room to grow within the company and looking to use my education more in future employment.
