I am already in full blown maternity clothes. I am pretty sure I started showing around 10 weeks (we were in mexico so I was wearing flowy summer dresses making it hard to tell exactly when). I definitley have a baby bump and have for a few weeks.

I have known a few people who were out of their regular clothes by 6 weeks! Just depends on how much your body changes in the first few weeks. I also know a woman who did not show with her THIRD child until she was almost 7 months pregnant. With her first she was over due and the nurse didn't believe her when she was in for a non-stress test.

I was very uncomfortable in my jeans and started wearing sweats almost right away but didn't buy maternity jeans till 12 weeks I think. I say I started showing (as in looking preggo and not fat ) at 16 weeks.

I didn't invest in maternity clothes until about 22 weeks, but I did spend a couple weeks in yoga pants before that.

I've been bloated since the egg retrieval. If not for my bella band none of my regular pants would fit.

I bought mat pants at 8 weeks, mostly for comfort (it just hurt WAY TOO MUCH to wear regular jeans, especially when sitting down... Ouch...)

Now I thank goodness I bought them so long ago, because I can't fit in regular pants to save my life and DESPERATELY need maternity shirts - mainly so I can stop showing off my belly to random passers-by, but also to avoid getting a farmers tan on my navel. Because that would be OH SO SEXY. Yup.

I was about 23 weeks before I started to get a little pooch. I didn't wear maternity clothes until the very end. I got by with the Belly Bands, rubber bands and a size larger in shirts

I was super bloated at about 8-9 weeks and thought I would need maternity pants soon, but didn't actually get to the point where I needed them until about 22 weeks. I did wear a belly band before that though for uncomfortable days.

I didn't start showing for what seemed like the LONGEST time. I think maybe I was around 16 or 17 weeks when I finally started. However, I couldn't button my jeans from about 7 weeks onward. I had to rubber-band them for a bit, and then I got a belly band. I was just SO bloated, it was ridiculous.

I was really bloated in the beginning so my pants were pretty tight and I started using a Bella band around 6 weeks but I didn't start "showing" until around 18 weeks or so. Until that point I just looked bloated or chubby.
