Who is still in regular clothes?

post #1 of 37
Thread Starter 
I'm surprised by this but my clothing has not become tight at all yet-Is anyone else in this boat? With my 2nd and 3rd pregnancies I think I was getting into bigger clothes at this point, I'm just starting 9 weeks. With my 1st pregnancy iI think it did take this long for a bump to form.
I'm not eating very much because I feel gross and ds nurses 6-7 times a day so I wonder if I am just not gaining any weight (which is fine by me because ds was LGA 10.5 lbs and maybe less weight gain will mean smaller baby)

Since I work at home, I wear PJs and loung pants a lot so I can't tell if I am any biger. Elastic is nice By working at home I should not have to buy too many maternity cloths. Mostly I can wear comfortable sweat pants and PJs.

I'm still in regular clothes. I've lost a couple of pounds, but my pants are actually falling down on me. I don't get it, since I haven't lost that much! But maybe the pounds are moving from my butt to my tummy and my breasts. Now they've seemed to pack on the pounds. None of my bras fit anymore, and my back is in constant pain from the sudden increase. Nothing like going from a DD to an H in a couple of days, eh?

Does it count if I'm in my regular jeans, but the button is undone? I'm going to have to go shopping soon.

I'm in my normal clothes and expect (hope!) to be for a while yet. With my first, I didn't start wearing maternity clothes until I was 20+ weeks.

Well, my jeans were a little snug before I got preggo thanks to gaining a little weight over the summer. However, now they fit again b/c I've lost 8lbs due to lack of appetite and all the puking I've done over the last week.

With my 2 previous pregnancies, I wore my jeans all the way up to delivery. They were unbuttoned but they still fit in the bum and thighs. That is so not happening this time.

Technically they fit but they are soooo uncomfortable so I bought some maternity clothes from Old Navy last weekend (my stuff from my other kids seems so outdated and ugly now! lol)

Not me! I didn't imagine buying maternity clothing so early (6 weeks), but I had gained a bit of weight before conceiving so my clothes were alerady snug...and the last time I tried to wear regular pants all day my whole lower tummy ached all day after and it scared me, so I went out and bought mat clothes...some of them are a bit big on me still, but that's fine; at least they are comfortable! I LOVE my maternity jeans (as long as nobody sees the elastic waist that comes up to my breasts!)....they are ultra comfy and look good too (with a longer top). We haven't told anyone yet, so I've been trying to find clothes that I can wear to conceal the growing bump. I'm only 7 weeks, so I think we may have to start telling before the three months mark as we had originally planned...pretty soon it will be all too obvious!

I'm still in regular clothes, but they are uncomfy. I went and bought maternity jeans today and just need to get them hemmed.

My last pregnancy I was in regular clothes til 6 months though.

I'm not in my regular clothes.

Hi everyone,

I am expecting #4, going into my 9th week, and have not been in my regular clothes for a few weeks. I think that my permanent pre baby bulge met up with my newly expanding uterus and aha I have a new bloatation device-my stomach! I feel like I look 6 months pregnant with the combination of above physical characterisitcs.

The challenging part has been, I usually wear jeans and maternity jeans (the kind with the big panel that make my bump look smooth) but lately due to morning sickness, I don't want any constricting bands on my upper abdomen. So, I spent half the week in my striped pj bottoms.

Regular clothes, but I'm not even 8 weeks yet.

I'm only six weeks so still in regular clothes. I can usually wear my regular jeans for my whole pregnancy because I'm pretty tall and carry my babies really high.

Same here. In fact, I never even adjusted my maternity pants (they had adjustable side panels) until the very end of my pregnancy, when I was horribly swollen. I was actually able to make do with a lot of shirts I already owned as well, since they were either stretchy or big to begin with. I won't be so lucky this time around, as I'll need bigger sweaters and such to get through the winter!

I'm still in my regular clothes, but I've had IBS for years and can't stand to have any pressure on my abdomen, so all of my clothes were baggy to start out with.

My body doesn't seem to have changed much yet, but I'm not even at 9 weeks, so maybe that's normal.

I have one pair of jeans that I've retired (it just hits the wrong spot on my tummy - I also hate them when I'm not pregnant, like during PMS times and if I gain a couple pounds). My other jeans I am still wearing, they seem to fit pretty much the same. I have gained like 4 pounds (yikes!) but everything is fitting relatively the same, I think. I think I look more bloated in my belly (which already looked at least 5 months pregnant before I we even conceived!) but DH doesn't see it.

I am, but it won't be long before I move into my maternity pants. I'm still the same size/weight, but my belly (at 8 weeks) has definitely popped.


I'm going to have to break out the Bella Band to get me through the next few weeks!

Ugh, the Bella Band makes me nauseous.

ugggh me too. pressure on my abdomen hurts so bad and makes me gassy(er).

i'm not even 6 weeks yet, so i'm still in my regular clothes (mostly low-rise pants and about a size too big). i'm guessing i'll be in maternity by the end of october, but i love maternity pants. so comfy! i also just got a new pair of maternity jeans from the gap ($19.99!!), and i'm excited to wear them. maternity is only fun for me when i don't REALLY need it.

Still in regular clothes here. And I'm pretty surprised by it. My PG girlfriends are already "unbuttoning" but I'm still hanging in there. I think it's coming soon though...I've got to go over to a few friends houses to collect maternity clothes but I have some up-sized clothes that should do me for a while.

Surprisingly enough for me, I've lost another 3.5 pounds this past week even though I am eating...though smaller quantities to stave off the nausea.
