You are not alone. I think thats just the way it is for us Crohnies to always have the big bellies and be thinner every where else. I can't wear the elastic waist stuff as all it does is give me a bad stomach ache. Funny you say has anyone tried maternity pants, I have a few shirts that are actually maternity shirts. I always wear baggier shirts to cover my belly.
