I've bought a few maternity clothes already, an app I have on my phone says I will need them for spring, summer, and fall, how much would I need? I have a couple long sleeve shirts, a couple tank tops, one pj (shirt/pant set), (the pants for the pj set are super long, which kinda sucks... i've heard that i'm supposed to buy the size of maternity clothes, as the size i'm wearing now. I'm super short so I have problems finding pants that will actually fit and not be too long lol) one pair of shorts. Haven't found where to buy maternity underwear. Mostly I buy things off of walmarts website, and I haven't seen any on there. (I live in a small town that basically has no stores other than grocery stores...me and the fiance are hoping to move some place a littel bigger when he gets a full time job and saves some more money) I have a walmart store about a half hour from where I live, but I wouldn't know where to look for maternity underwear there (I had asked a store worker once where the maternity clothes were, they didn't seem to have a very big selection, and nothing that I wanted.) Anyone know where to get maternity underwear without it costing a lot? Do I need maternity/nursing bras, or will my regular bras (I wear sports bras) be fine? Anyone know of any stores that might be in a mall that could be helpful? I don't go to malls much, but my mother in law loves to shop, so maybe I can have her take me to one... or any cheap websites?

I've heard about Intelligender, for finding out the gender of the baby at 10 weeks. Me and my fiance both wish we could know now, instead of waiting until June. (As do the grandparents and aunts and uncles...they want to buy stuff!) HAs anyone used that before? how accurate is it? I've read mixed reviews on it, and don't want to spend the $30 unless I know it will be worth the money.

As far as maternity underwear- It's up to you. I will probably be buying low cut for a long while and then just larger instead of spending the extra money on actual maternity underwear. I am sure there are many people who feel differently.

As far as Intelligender- don't do it for anything other than fun! If you look at the reviews it's 50/50! Which is exactly what it would be if I guessed!

I cannot stand maternity underwear...at least the ones I had. I just buy one size up in regular cheapy underwear and they are comfortable for me. Maybe maternity unders have gotten better since I bought them but man those suckers went all the way up under my breasts back in the day LOL For bras as long as you're not uncomfortable I would wear what I always wear. If you're going to nurse I would invest in nursing bras shortly before baby comes or better yet (to me) nursing camis are the best! They give you more coverage so your tummy isn't out while your nursing and they're comfy. I am smaller chested though (B cup) so I don't know how that would suit a bigger chested lady. Intelligender...I don't know much about it but I agree not to put too much faith in it although it probably would be fun

I've heard nothing really good about intelligender. Lots of predictions for boys, lot of wrong guesses. I'm now almost 11 weeks and considering doing a blood test for gender determination. My doc office doesn't offer the maternity21 so I'm considering spending $320 for a test from Non-Invasive Prenatal DNA Gender test on Maternal Blood | PRENATAL GENETICS CENTER I'm just not sure if I really want to spend the $320 or not... Honestly I would have to wait until probably 20 weeks as the elective u/s places I don't think do early gender determination before like 18 weeks. :/

Check Amazon, they may have better prices than Walmart. I am very fortunate, the city I work in has a TON of second hand clothing stores. I stopped at Target yesterday to buy new underwear and was appalled at the price of maternity clothing. I don't spend that much on clothes that I'll be able to wear for years, I'm definitely not spending that kind of money on clothes I will only wear for a few months!

Old Navy has fairly inexpensive maternity clothes, and they're super comfy. I'm basically living in the maternity yoga pants and capris I ordered from them online. I agree with the others on maternity underwear. You don't really need a maternity bra, just a few nursing bras when the time comes. If your boobs grow a lot, you may need to get a couple of bigger bras. Sports bras are fine. I never wore maternity panties either, just got some bigger undies.
