Is everybody in maternity clothes by now or are some still making do with your regular wardrobe?

I moved into maternity pants around 11-12 weeks because my jeans were just too uncomfortable while sitting down. Now I'm kind of annoyed because my regular tops aren't long enough to cover the panel though they are still plenty roomy.

I'm still in regular clothes. Don't think I will purchase maternity clothes at all since by the time I need them, it will be spring/summer. I will be living in maxi skirts and dresses.

I'm definitely in them lol have been for a while. But being meatier than many mammas on here, the maternity is much more comfy. I'm small everywhere but my boobs and belly so regular clothes are always a pain. I can fit in smaller clothes in everything but the waist area and the chest area so I always have to buy bigger. I've been a fan of the below the tummy (non panel) maternity jeans since before I even got pregnant. They were so much more comfortable than regular jeans.

i dont need them at all yet. My waist is wider, but my pants are really stretchy apperetly. I lost 20 lbs before i got pregnant and still wear the same jeans lol. So they work just fine, and i like long shirts so they cover my bloat.

I've been in maternity pants and shirts for a while now I had gotten so small after DD that I was down to a size 0, so my regular pants were just too uncomfortable starting around 13 weeks. The good part is that my boobs are getting big again too! Yay Haha.

I bought maternity cute maternity t-shirts, but have yet to buy bottoms...I'm waiting for the capri style pants to get in to stores because I do not want to wear jeans in the summer, we are supposed to have a very hot Sahara wind summer in Europe and with no air conditioning I want to be a minimalist when it comes to clothing.

I'm wearing a bunch of borrowed maternity clothes. Same w/ me- wearing mostly pants but all my normal shirts are too short (Doesnt help that my boobs are huge!). Don't have much of a bump but normal pants are quite uncomfortable- especially by the end of the day. Has anyone checked out Old Navy Maternity? They have some cute summery stuff

Maternity shirts are still way too big on me. Anyone have suggestions where to look for some longer shirts or t-shirts? I'm pretty casual so nothing fancy, I just want to cover up these ugly panels! I might have to layer tanks under everything for awhile otherwise.

In December I couldn't button my pants anymore so I started buying maternity shirts to cover up the fact that my pants weren't buttoned. Eventually I got sick of trying to come up with various ways to hold my pants up, so I switched to maternity pants too. That required buying more maternity shirts to cover up the panel. I can't wear any of my normal clothes anymore. I'm so tall that everything becomes too short on me really quickly.

I've been buying all my shirts from Motherhood. I go straight for the clearance rack and grab everything that is marked at $9.99. They don't seem very long to me, but again, I'm really tall. Almost all the shirts in my belly pictures thread came off the motherhood clearance rack.

I'm still in regular clothes. The waist of my jeans are too tight, but maternity clothes are still too big. I'm in scrubs 5 out of 7 days, so I will put up with too tight jeans for a few more weeks.

I live in PJ pants and yoga pants right now. I have one pair of full panel maternity jeans...i LOVED them, but now I hate them! I don't like the elastic around my belly. That elastic added with the pressure on my abdomen from my under wire bra makes it difficult for me to breathe comfortably. :/

Like PrincessMom, I carry my weight in my boobs and stomach. Pants fit me in the hips/thigh but ar too small in the waist...pants fit me in the waist but my butt/thighs are swimming in them. My boobs are so big that I just can't go without a bra, but they are so uncomfortable for me right now. :/

I am still wearing my regular clothes- but differently than I did pre-pregnancy. For instance what I would have worn as a dress is now paired with a pair of leggings and cardigan, etc. I'm just finding different ways to wear what I already have. I still have a few pairs of jeans that I can wear - but only because they were way too big before I got pregnant. lol I did buy a few maternity dresses- but I am going to try to keep my purchase of maternity to a minumum because by the time I'm that big it will be spring/summer and I have a lot of skirts/dresses that will work just fine. (I hope) The only thing I may splurge on is a pair of maternity jeans.

I am also in maternity clothes now. They are just so much more comfortable and my jeans were really starting to make my stomach hurt. I still mix in some of my old long shirts but for the most part I am keeping in the maternity clothes.

I found some long shirts at Old navy that are not huge in the maternity section. They seem like they will let me grow a bit too so I am pretty pleased with them for now.

I am still in regular clothes. Although I am wearing a belly band to cover the gap where my shirts are getting shorter.

I've been wearing my shorter dresses as shirts also with stretch pants, leggings, or even sometimes jeans. I've actually shopped for them at the thrift store lately. Since I'm well endowed in the chest area, many maternity shirts are too short on me and you can see the panel or I have to wear my band and it looks pretty obvious lol

I have been having a hard time finding stores around me that carry maternity clothes. Right now everything is so uncomfortable, even my yoga pants are getting a little tight in the tummy area. I love dresses, so I'm hoping to live in those once the weather warms up!
