... to wear the maternity pants already. I feel like such a poser - my uterus isn't even near my pubic bone yet! I'm 8 weeks.
I wear a rubber band on my pants because I HATE the tightness (makes me queasy) and by evening I look huge. Definitely maternity worthy after dinnertime. But in the morning? Can I really put on mat pants and not get laughed out of work?
Last pregnancy I was in maternity pants at 5 weeks. You can absolutely wear them now!!! Just wear a long shirt so no one knows they're maternity.
This time, I'm only in regular jeans because I have *one* pair that is "slimming", which means it's really stretchy all over! But even they're starting to get a bit uncomfortable, even though I can stretch them a few inches away from my belly. I sometimes wear my maternity pants, but many of my shirts are too short for them. Won't be long before I need maternity tops though.

I feel the same!!! I know I look like i am about 5 months! I am so queazy when I have something tight around me. I hate it. So why DO I have a belly already? Anyone know. You know that little tiny baby is like the size of a grape!

I am so with you! Morning, I am mostly normal, maybe a bit rounder, but as the day progresses, I look hugely pregnant and only maternity will fit. My seven year old actually looked at me last night and said, "Wow, Mom, you ARE pregnant!" Like you, I am 8 weeks.
PLEASE be comfortable! I know that's the choice I've made for myself! LOL
I think I gave up last week on Wednesday or so. That's eight weeks and a couple of days. I'm not in maternity pants since I don't have any long pants, but I'm in sweat pants, stretchy skirts, and my two sizes too big jeans.
I am right there with you! Plus I had a baby in February so that's not helping the situation any! Luckily I bought bigger regular jeans right after I had him so now I'm back to wearing them. I have some of the underbelly style maternity pants that are really comfy right now, too.
Wear what ever your comfy in. I wore some of my maternity shorts this summer b/c I didn't have any non-maternity shorts. Know what-they were way more comfortable too!

i bought my first pair last week but haven't worn them. i have one of those motherhood belly bands that looks like the top of maternity pants. i wore it over some jeans that no longer button (more bloat than baby) but it kept slipping! ugh!
now i'm just wearing lots of empire waist dresses and leggings.
I've apparently put on ten pounds so a rubberband is just barely doing it at this point. I feel you on the tightness making you queasy thing!
The thought of my maternity clothes actually makes me gag though, for some reason. I just want to wear pajamas, but I doubt I'll be getting any permission for that, haha.
