Anybody else have a small baby belly and are still wearing regular jeans?

My belly seems to be taking it's time to make an appearence. I'm still wearing my regular jeans and shirts. I was expecting to show sooner this time, with my 1st pregnancy I was showing by 14 weeks and I'm 16 weeks now and no where close to where I was at my last pregnancy.

Just wondering if anybody else is going through the same thing? (I'm guessing not many)

I'm 14 and a half weeks, and hardly have a bump. I am still in my regular jeans for the most part. I had to give up the smaller of the two sizes I usually wear, but can comfortably fit into most of my jeans still. I do on occasion unbutton them and use a rubber band.

I'm 15 weeks 5 days and I can still fit into all my jeans, not even using the rubber band trick for most of them. This is my 4th pregnancy btw. Every belly grows differently because every baby is different, IMO.

I am 16 weeks with #4 an still in all my regular clothes. The only time I've made it this far into a pregnancy without maternity clothes was with #1. But I do have a slight advantage. i already have a belly to begin with. So although I've popped I am still able to wear all my regular clothes still.

I've got two pairs that fit just right before I got pregnant and they are not comfortable anymore, just too tight! Then I have 2 pairs that were slightly baggy that I am still wearing!

I am still wearing regular jeans. I think that sometimes people carry high and can wear jeans longer.

I've been small with all of my past pregnancies. This time it seems like my whole lower half has chnaged shape, my rump and thighs do not go into my regular jeans anymore, but I don't have a proclaimed "baby bump." I wore my regular clothes into my third trimester with my son, but I also wore maternity clothes because people were giving them to me and I felt like I *should.* With my daughter I grew quickly in the beginning, but then just kind of stopped at 20 weeks. I measured okay and everything, just higher up instead of going out. My second baby actually bruised my ribs. (or that is the phrase, I don't think it is a literal bruising of the bone?) This baby does seem to be going outward a bit more, but if it weren't for my bottom getting big, I'd probably still be in my regular jeans too.

My closest fitting pair of jeans went out the door around 12 weeks, I think.

I can still wear my next largest, but they're preeeetty tight.

My next largest is still holding out, but they ride low. If my butt doesn't get too big I might be able to sport them throughout lol.

Today I got out the maternity pants for the first time and didn't feel like a fool wearing them. Hooray for comfort!

I can;t wear ANY of my regular jeans, not since 10-11 weeks I think. But Maternity jeans are still too big. So I wear mainly yoga pants or sweat pants!

Between 10-12 weeks my regular jeans went out the door too cheap to buy maternity jeans at $50-$60 a pair for 4-5 months

Good for you! Take advantage! I'm wearing shorts buttoned up, but they have a lot of spandex in the denim. I'm wearing a maternity shirt with them though, and look pregnant. It has been stormy and cool here the past couple days, so when we went out the other night, I put on jeans and tucked into boots. I was like an upturned turtle trying to get the jeans on and my boots zipped up. I had to use a rubber band to hold the jeans shut, barely. It's not pretty. This week is a turning point and I"m sure that by 20 weeks all old jeans will be in storage.

I can pull them up, but I don't bother zipping or buttoning. They're old and frayed and I'm a bit nervous watching those holes in them stretch. I just know if I push too much wearing them, I'll be showing the world my business. One friend was like, "I love the shredded jeans." I'm like yeah, that's their scream for help.

I'm mostly wearing maternity just because it's so much more comfortable.
I do have shorts and jeans I wear sometimes that are regular, but they are a size up from my usual size.
