Did you go to Motherhood yet? They have these type of bella bands (maternity sleeve I think) that go around your maternity pants so they stay up lol or old pants so you can wear them longer. Best invention ever and it's only about $16 as opposed to $20+ online for the bella bands. They are suppose to be nice to have after so you can fit into your old clothes sooner, even when you hips don't let you hehehe. I swear my hips took at least 9 months to go to a normal size and even then it just wasn't the same.
