How about you?
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'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 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.
