I have been in maternity clothes since about 7 weeks...basically the week we found out. This is #7, but at 10 weeks + today I could easily pass for 4-5 months pregnant if not more. Pretty much as soon as the pee dries on the stick, my organs move up and out of the way and my upper belly is super big. And then I am so queasy and sensitive to touch in my lower belly that I can't stand anything tight so yeah, maternity pants it is.
I'm pretty sure I won't buy anything new this time around. I got a bag of clothes from a girl friend and bought 7 pairs of pants for $6 or less from second-hand stores. I'm determined not to buy anything new other than a splurge I just made on nursing tanks that I have found to be my perfect fit!
My thing I can't really figure out right now is tops (other than my tanks)...I'm just a little embarrassed about how big I am at just 10 weeks, so though I'd rather just wear my form fitting maternity tops that I love and embrace my shape, I'm trying to wait until I least get through the first trimester at work so I can avoid some of the "OH MY GOSH!" "Are you SURE it's not TWINS?!?!?!" "Not due until JANUARY!!???" love that's sure to come my way ;) So for now, I'm just wearing my regular shirts at work and grateful that I sit behind a desk most of the day...at home though I break out those form fitting tees and just live it up.
I guess at 38 years old I should get some self confidence but it's not really that as much as I just don't want to deal with the comments. It makes me so grumpy with people. LOL
