I said other. I'm wearing sweatpants mainly, and I have a pair of loose fitting jeans when I need to go out.
Shirts still fit (most of them..) so no problem there.
I have a bump for sure, but that's what sweats are for I did it with DD too.

I am wearing my regular pants still, of course the size 2's I have on today are unbuttoned when I sit - I hope I don't forget that and walk away from my desk

I have been wearing my bigger pants, but I am running low on options, didn't have many of those, so DH will be pulling the bin of mat clothes out soon enough!!

I am not quite ready to put those maternity clothes on yet, but soon I will start to wear the shirts that make it obvious, so that I don't look like I am just putting on a few

No, but I need to get some soon. Especially shirts, all my old shirts were tight and tiny and they just make me look really fat now. I hope I get some for Christmas!

Thank you Quantum_Leap for my beautiful siggy!!

Nope and my old maternity clothes wouldn't even fit anymore b/c they were from
when I was 60 lbs heavier AND pregnant! For now even though I still fit my "skinny" jeans I've moved up into my "period" jeans that are one size bigger so a bit roomier. The rest of the time I'm in scrubs which all have either drawstring or elastic waistbands. They'll get me through my entire pregnancy.

I'm wearing my normal pants, but some of them need a belly band. I'm wearing mostly maternity tops because others are just not as cute with my belly right now. I have great maternity tops that don't look like maternity, so I don't have to tell people yet.

Thank you peimum for my siggie

I voted other because I'm half and half. I pulled my old ones out, and started wearing my smaller things but I don't have maternity jeans, so I'm still wearing regular ones just unbuttoned when I sit.

My husband thinks my belly is getting big but when I went to ny (my home state) for thanksgiving my family didn't really think so. I'm tall with a long torso so I usually don't show until about 20 weeks then I pop out big.

Thanks to Shortcake for my wonderful siggy!

I'm in maternity now. I can still wear some of my regular shirts that were more loose fitting but I need maternity jeans and maternity stretch yoga type pants now for sure.

Walmart.com has THE best deals on Maternity! I got 4 shirts and a pair of jeans for $52 shipped. The jeans are better quality than Motherhood IMO, and I've worn just about every brand over the course of my last three pregnancies. lol

I don't need them yet but I couldn't resist getting some maternity stuff from the gap when they had a 40% off sale a few weeks ago. I got three pairs of pregnancy jeans and a few tops.

still wearing my regular clothes which is why I at people who say I look "different" no need for maternity clothes yet but I'm going to buy some looser "bump hiding" shirts tomorrow. I was supposed to on Saturday but I never left the house. I have an OB appt. in the morning so I'll just go shopping afterwards. I'll also pick up the holiday gifts I'm not buying online.
