How about you?
I started around 4 months because I just couldn't take it anymore! The belly band did not work for me at all. I did the safety pin/rubber band thing for 1 week and that was enough. I felt so much better when I switched to maternity pants. I would have done it sooner, but I still hadn't told people at work that I was pregnant and I thought the new clothes would be a giveaway. I still haven't worn my ruched tops yet because I haven't told everyone else in the office yet.
I had bloat early on and pants were just super uncomfortable. I think I was in maternity pants by 15-18 weeks. I'm short though.
I'm 11 weeks ans am already in desperate need of them. I'm quite slim, and with my last pregnancy i don't think I was even showing at 11 weeks. But this time I'm very obviously pregnant and my jeans are too uncomfortable now.
I'll be 14 weeks on Monday. I've been living in leggings and that one last pair of jeans that could button. Yesterday, I broke down and went to consignment stores and bought a pair of maternity jeans ($7!) and a dress and shirt. I also ordered another pair of jeans and some leggings from gap/old navy (they have deals online at the moment, so I shopped from sale section).
I started wearing yoga pants right away. Can't stand having anything tight against my tummy when I pregnant and thankfully I am a SAHM. I upgraded to maternity shirts around 14 or 15 weeks I think. I could have used them a couple weeks earlier, but it wasn't too bad. I feel much more comfortable in maternity clothes now. I have a longer torso, so I outgrow the length pretty fast, I was able to use the non-mat. shirts longer because of the wasteband on the yoga pants. It probably wasn't very flattering though. LOL
I don't wear maternity clothes, their almost all ugly. All the ones i do like are made for tall women and they are expensive. So i just keep on wearing the cute clothes i like
I am 9 weeks along with my second, and I lost about 30 pounds before I got pregnant, so my pants are super loose. I'm still losing weight (I throw up almost everyday and I don't want to eat as much as I used to). I'm still overweight (195 pounds for a 5'4" frame). But I think with the combination of losing the weight, my tilted back uterus I probably won't be into maternity clothes until the mid way through the second trimester again. I definitely don't look pregnant. Most people show quicker on the second one, but that isn't currently holding true for me.
I think with all of my pregnancies that by 12 weeks I was wearing sweats if I didn't buy some maternity clothing.
This last pregnancy I just bought some mens cotton tank tops that were super huge from Old Navy, that way I could continue to wear my shirts through the pregnancy. I had that layered look going on.
Not that many of you shop at walmart. But, I was trying to save money, so I did. Well, the t-shirts I bought are already coming unthreaded at the bottom. Not cool. I took a trip to Motherhood Maternity this morning for a few shirts. I'll designate my walmart shirts as pajamas. Motherhood is having a pretty nice sale right now.
Yep, Walmart maternity clothes are a joke--rather shoddy quality. Plus, there's no way you could wear most of them to work.
