I asked this a while ago but I'm curious where everyone is when it comes to needing maternity clothing. Today was the first time when I felt as though I may soon need some help in the old trousers department. Are you wearing maternity clothing all the time, or not at all, etc? I tend to buy clothing on the slightly bigger side so I probably have more room in my normal clothing than most..
I need to hunt for my old maternity gear though I think I will treat myself to a few nice things Anyone have any nice new purchases?
I bought a really cute shirt at H&M for work. I also bought some maternity tshirts for under cardigans and they are awesome! They are LONG! I should have bought some ages ago (I'm tall so I have a hard time with regular clothes.) I'm not in maternity pants yet because most of mine seem to sit below my belly which is fine.
I'm wearing some of my maternity pants, some of my regular pants stretch enough in the waist that I can still wear them. I'm still in my regular shirts for the most part, although some of them are a little short, so not much longer for those.

That exact thing happened to me yesterday. No matter whether I pulled my pants over my belly or stuck it under, it seemed uncomfortable. I think it'll be time very soon. Even though my belly has not yet visibly grown that much lol
I'm not in my maternity pants yet, but I as of this weekend I was having trouble getting my normal pants done up comfortably so I'm now wearing what I can my "transition" pants which are normal pants but one size bigger than I usually wear. They're from after I had my son when I was still too big for my regular jeans but too small for maternity pants.
I've been in maternity since the 6th week. If I'm not wearing that, its my sweat pants that I lounge around in. I just bought some clothes from JC Penney that were on sale. I'm waiting on them to get here in a few days. A few shirts and a pair of capris since shorts are a big no for my uber white legs. Im going to check old navy in the next month for their monthly sales and try to get a few cami tops that I can wear with my button up shirt.

I mostly wear dresses to work and cumfy work out pants at home. On the weekends I either wear my maternity pants or my regular jeans depending on how I'm feeling that day. The regular pants are getting a bit snug so I think I'll soon be just in maternity pants. MOST of my pre-pregnancy shirts still fit except my favorite one
I usually wear tighter jeans (size 4 or 6 depending on brand) so I've been in maternity pants for a while now. In the last two days I've moved out of small maternity jeans and into mediums-so much better! For tops I still wear my longer shirts-they're just more form fitting.
A friend of mine said her favorite through two pregnancies was Japanese Weekend, so I splurged a bit and got this dress... it's so comfy and I love how it wraps and drapes. I'll wear a cardigan with it or something. It's nursing, also.
I was soooooooooooooooo looking forward to wearing my shorts on my vacation one time this year... but I tried putting them on and they wouldnt button up!!! so I never got to wear my shorts... and then just this week I tried on some of my work out shorts/Capri that I had just worn the week or two weeks before and they were uncomfortable on my tummy!!! so I rolled it under my tummy and that seemed to be ok... I have been wearing my maternity jeans just because I never have had a reason to wear or buy any for that matter... and it just makes it more real to me! lol I know Im a HUGE DORK!!! but hey it is what it is! lol
Wow that is cute!! I have a dress similar to it, but it's not nursing; just a plain dress. So I assume Japanese Weekend is the brand?!
I mostly wear skirts when out and about or my comfy yoga pants to work. I bought one pair of maternity jeans so far but they are still slightly too big. My regular shirts all still fit but I've noticed they are getting shorter! And you can see an obvious belly under them.
**Thank you SO much Quantum_Leap for this perfect siggy!**
Cute! I WANT to be a dress wearing kind of gal, but I never have been. I hope this summer I'll be into dresses more. But, I really dislike most of my jeans because when I sit down it gets tight on my lower abdomen and makes me nauseated. I think I need stretchier pants instead of jeans. I just don't want to spend the money on clothing I'll wear for 2 months before they won't fit.
