    Having never been pregnant & therefore never needing to buy maternity clothes I would guess about £100 - how much are you getting outbid by?

    Other maternity bundles have gone for £20-£25 but I put a £60 increased bid and thought that would be enough as P&P is £10 but some just bid £73. I'll need to speak to hubby I suppose to see what we can afford lol

    I would be reluctant to pay too much as how long will you need it for? Do you really need 8 tops, 4 blouses, 5 trousers and 5 jeans?

    With my first I got away with 2 dresses that I wore for work.

    For my 2nd (twin pregnancy but wasnt working) I bought 2 pairs of jeans and 2 tops. Bored stiff of them by the time I gave birth but begrudges spending on maternity stuff

    I guess you are right most of my normal tops are long and stretchy which probably would do. But I need work trousers/jeans etc as getting huge this time...

    Check out your local car boot sales as you can get some good prices on things (especially if you are not going to be keeping them for long).

    i would go for a smaller bundle - probably easier and you might get a better bargain! x

    I suppose if you get it you'll have plenty of choice so it wont be as well worn so you can flog it again afterwards!!!

    It's a lot of years since I was last pregnant, so I have to ask - What are bump bands?......I'm intrigued.

    If they're what I think they are they're like a thick piece of elastic that you wear like a belt but under your bump - really supports you when you get huge and you're walking around

    Well, there are 41 separate items of clothing in that list so if you averaged it at $2 an item which is what you would probably pay at a car boot sale or similar,(sorry, my American keyboard won't make pound signs) then I'd probably go to about $80.

    Wow. 41 items of maternity clothing is a substantial wardrobe :)

    im assuming that they are second hand yes? even so for those brands and for the amount thats there i would expect to pay alot more than that. maternity wear is very expensive where i live.

    I won the maternity bundle on ebay

    I got it for £73.73 which is great for 40 items. I'll look after them and if they have still use out of them will sell on.

    I'm found it really hard where I live to get maternity clothes even at car boots/charity shops etc like someone suggested. The only shop in my local town was Mothercare and it was £35 for a pair of jeans so to get 5 pairs + the rest of the stuff is fab.

    So happy now I can be comfortable in proper maternity clothes so I won't need to open the buttons on my trousers...:D

    Well done! And although it seems like a chunk of money, when you break it down it's a real bargain. Plus, as you say, you can sell it on when you've had your baby and probably get your money back :)
