I'm bored today if you can't tell by all my posts. :)
Anyway, who's in maternity clothes already? How many wks are you and what # child is this?
I'm a little over 14 wks with my first and I'm thinking of going to get some tomorrow.
I'm not in mat pants, but only because I haven't had a frackin' minute to get to Target to buy some! I need some! The whole pants with the elastic plus a bella band thing is getting old. I want some comfortable pants! I have a couple of mat tshirts, but they still look too big, so I mostly just wear form fitting kind of shirts and hope I look a little pregnant and not just chubby :)
I'm 15 weeks with my 3rd. I'm really hoping I can get to the store soon!
I woke up Friday morning and none of my pants fit. NOTHING fit. Luckily I found a skirt I could pull off. I figured that rather than buy one of those belly bands to stretch out my current clothing for only a few weeks, I'd just bite the bullet and go buy some pants that would grow with me. I found a bunch of work pants that are comfortable for me, even so early. I don't need the shirts yet, but picked up a few tshirts that were on sale at Motherhood.
Oops..forgot to add...I'll be 12 weeks on Monday.
Pretty much in maternity full time now. I have a few pairs of pre-pregnancy pants that I can still button, but they are so uncomfortable on my stomach that I just never bother. I am 13 weeks with #3. Even with my first, I was in maternity before the end of my 1st trimester. I've always been an early popper I guess.
Me too. I'm not huge, but I can't stand anything smooshing my belly. I can still wear my own pants with a Bella Band/Be Band, but it's kinda annoying. I LOVE wearing my yoga pants, but I can't exactly wear those to work. :)
With this pregnancy (I'm 12 ish weeks), I'm going between yoga pants and this one pair of jeans I own that has the waist that normally infuriates me because it's so large. It seems to not taper at all from the hips to the waist, so it always required a belt before. But suddenly it is my favorite pair of jeans!
I've been dragging my heels getting the maternity box out of storage, but I'm getting the point now where the bella band feels too tight, and I know it looks kind of ridiculous. Sigh.
I've been wearing maternity pants since 10 weeks and this is my first. It's not that I got so huge, but button waistbands were just really uncomfortable and I needed new pants anyway. Now at 14 weeks I definitely need them as my fattest fat pants are difficult to button despite being loose on the legs. I just got some maternity tights too because my regular ones were leaving an unsightly bulge in my middle regions. Still in regular shirts though. Ironically, I look less pregnant in mat pants than in regular because they aren't squishing my tummy.
I've been in mat. pants since the 8th week, and I am now almost 15 weeks. This is my first. Up until two or three weeks ago, I probably could have still buttoned my regular pants but they were way too uncomfortable so I just switched to mat. jeans. I wear yoga pants the majority of the time anyway. I am definitely still in reg. shirts though. I just got my first official mat. shirt and it is still way too big in the belly region!
Not I! Although I think it is due to the combination that they seem to make everything extra long these days to try and compensate for the low rise pants and the dreaded "coin purse" phenomenon, and the fact that I am a pretty short person, with a proportionately short torso. I bet if you had a long torso, or were of average height, you'd be forced to ride the maternity shirt train pretty quickly!
On another note, this thread inspired me to pull out the maternity box from storage. Ahhhh, elastic band jeans, how I have missed thee! Is there a reason we can't just wear these all the time?
I have been for a few weeks now. I am trying to hide my bump by wearing sweatshirts, but I'm not sure if it's working. The maternity jeans are a MUST at this point! I'm 15 weeks now - I think the last time I put on my regular (fatjeans) jeans was at 12 weeks. Its sucks not telling people because either A. they know and are just not saying anything or B. they just think I'm gaining weight at an alarming rate without reason!
This time around I've been wearing maternity some of the time since about 7wks. This is my 3rd pregnancy/2nd baby, and I seem to have a much bigger belly this time. If I wear maternity pants/skirts I have to wear maternity tops because nothing else is long enough. I'm a shorty, only 5ft2, but I'm very busty so longer tops are a must for me. I can still fit into one regular skirt with a tie waist and yoga pants, but they make me look even bigger than the maternity stuff do. I'll be 11 weeks tomorrow.
