Just wondering who has started to model the maternity wear and who is still stuffing into regular clothing. I will be 17 weeks Friday. With my first child, I couldn't wait to wear maternity. This time, I keep telling myself in another couple of weeks I won't be able to wear my regular clothing. Odd how times have changed.

Im am sorta...I have been wearing maternity dresses from old navy. I wear regular eleastic waist leggings with them under my bump. I am 19 weks and smaller this time around then with my first! Its weird cause i thought i would grow quicker this time. I assume its becayse i started out thinner this time. I still just look fat and not pregnant lol

I need maternity for work. My dress pants are all tailored size 2 and they don't button. I have been wearing maternity tops for a while because 1) I was going to buy a new winter wardrobe this year so I don't have any clothes and 2) my boobs went from a 36b to 36dd so none of my summer tops buttoned.

I've been wearing maternity full time since 14 weeks. My size 4 and 6 pants for work were getting uncomfortable around 11-12 weeks. I managed to wear my "fat" pants from when I was a size 10/12 for a bit but then they started hurting. My regular shirts can fit but they aren't long enough to cover the belly panel, so I gave up.

I'm full time in maternity clothes now. My mom took me out shopping and bought me a whole wardrobe when I was home for Christmas. The clothes I got are so cute, I want to keep wearing them post-baby LOL

Thank you *Kiliki* for the beautiful siggy

I literally just popped within the past week. Suddenly *all* my regular pants are just not working. I have a few elastic waist and yoga pants and am in those until I get my maternity clothes out of the attic, hopefully this weekend! Many of my tops still work but I will start transitioning to maternity tops soon too.

I was well over 20 weeks when I got to this stage with M. Definitely happening a lot earlier this time - about a month, maybe two sooner!

I started wearing maternity clothes earlier this time. As soon as I could feel the button of my jeans poking me in the baby zone, it weirded me out and I switched to maternity pants. Most of my regular shirts aren't long enough to cover the elastic band. I don't wear maternity pants with an actual panel. I have the ones that are just elastic waist from Old Navy. I switched as soon as I did b/c I figured I spent the money on the pants, so why be any level of uncomfortable when I don't have to be? The buttons poke me a lot and deep b/c I sit on the floor pretty much all day with DD and for work (I work with kids). I am lazy and chose comfort.

Also, I just received Old Navy's maternity real waist trousers that I ordered. They look amazing and they are the most comfortable pants I have ever worn. They look like normal pants on the front and back and just have stretchy triangles in the sides. Amazing. Highly recommended.

Maternity pants since like week 9. LOL! They're just more comfortable! I'm just now starting to do more maternity tops, but a lot of my tops are ones I've made that I made long on purpose so that I could wear them as maternity tops or regular tunic tops.

Full blown Maternity since about 12-13 weeks! Well except some regular sweatpants I bought very big. I should have started wearing them about 9 weeks but instead I lived in yoga pants and billowy tops even to work lol!

I'm wearing maternity, have been for about 3-4 weeks. The jeans are constantly sliding down and I'm having to hike them up, but it was just too uncomfortable with my regular jeans, even when I wasn't buttoning them. And the maternity tops are just more roomy and comfy, too!!

I've just started wearing some maternity tops this week. Mostly because I don't want to tug at my regular tops to keep them down all day. Also, most of my pants still fit because they sit low enough and with the maternity top even if I have to MacGyver them no one knows! Lol. But I will be heading back to Motherhood this weekend for more tops and pants this time too!

I can still mostly fit in my regular clothes. Luckily last summer, right before conceiving, I had lost between 20-30 pounds, so a lot of my stuff was looser on me anyway. My jeans are starting to get a little snug on my belly, but nothing unbearable yet.

I have mostly been in regular. I do not have any good maternity clothes left from my daughter. I have one pair of pants and I have been wearing them. I can't wait to buy a few maternity clothes!

I used my belly band everyday and it is still uncomfortable to me because I constantly have to adjust it. I cannot button any pants now.
