If you have been pregnant before, about what week did you start wearing maternity pants or around what week with this pregnancy did you start wearing maternity pants.

I see so many people on here already saying they are wearing maternity pants and I am no where near close. I haven't even changed a single belt buckle notch. I feel like my pants are the exact same fit. During my 1st pregnancy I wore them around week 14 starting, granted I am only at almost week 8 but I don't feel like I am changing at all and my weight is still the same. And I am not a big person, BMI like 21, I figured I would show sooner this time.

I had gained weight since the summer about 10-12 lbs, and when I gain weight it is all in my belly. So I started wearing them a couple of weeks ago...I had some new(non maternity jeans that I had just got) wore them for a bit and then started feeling them get to snug in the waist and instead of going out and buying more I just went right to the maternity ones....

I started wearing them at 8wks with my DD. I just bought new pants right before I got pregnant and purposely bought them bigger so they are still loose. I gained 10lbs by 8wks with my DD, I have lost a pound this time!

I believe I started wearing them around 12 weeks with my first.

This time, I wore the Bella Band almost immediately and was into maternity pants full-time by 8ish weeks.

I've been wearing mine for 2 weeks. I can still fit my other pants, but not comfortably.

24 weeks with my first. I know I will show a lot sooner this time around but am hoping to at least make it to 18/20 weeks without them.

About 6-7 weeks. My regular jeans are pretty snug so once I get preg they don't fit for long.

I was about 5-6 months along with my first and probably about 4-5 months with my second. My regular pants are fitting just fine for now and it will probably be quite some time before I need to change over.

I had my regular clothes packed and sent already just in case I gained more weight the last 2 months we're here. Basically all I have are my maternity clothes "just in case" and to be honest they are still too big but boy are they comfy compared to the already getting snug regular jeans I was wearing before the movers came

I never really wore them with my first.

I was huge from early on with my second and started wearing them around 20 weeks (although I lived in sweats the most of that pregnancy).

Last time, I broke them out somewhere around 34 weeks.

I just wear stretchy type jeans, that have some "give", and a low rise with a belly band the whole time.

I'm in regular pants still but they're trying to kill me when I sit down. Stiff bands on anything poking my tummy are terrible. Soon as I'm home I switch to yoga pants. In January I will consider maternity wear until then I will fight it! Not wearing maternity stuff until I tell my kids. I must be stealthy pregnant until then.

This is my 1st pregnancy and I'll be 8 weeks on Wednesday. My pants are already really snug but I think I'm just going to get the Belly Band from Target first before going Maternity pant shopping. I just need probably an extra inch or two for now. I can't believe I'm already not fitting in my pants but it's probably due to bloating since I haven't gained any weight yet.
