What's new in the maternity world in the last 8 years? Since I'm starting over with maternity clothes, do you have any suggestions of your favorites?

When do you think you'll pull them out?

I don't know what "new" is since I wasn't pregnant 8 years ago!

I only have two shirts left over from my last pregnancy, unfortunately I let a "friend" borrow all my stuff and she sold it all in a garage sale...

Last pregnancy I didn't get any maternity stuff until around 15 weeks I believe. I remember it was when I got to the point where all of my shirts just looked too tight and were creeping up in the front. I think this time around I may need pants a little sooner but honestly, I hate maternity pants and don't want to go buy any until I have to! Until then I will probably transition into more leggings and dresses!

My favorite maternity jeans are Old Navy. I have gotten several cute tops from Motherhood maternity and Kohls.

I started wearing maternity pants the middle of last week. My jeans were getting really snug to button and I had heard the heartbeat so decided it was a good time to break them out.

My fav maternity jeans were Gap. I liked the "Heidi Klum" line of stuff at Motherhood Maternity a lot...much more stylish than their regular stuff. I like the Liz Lange shirts from Target, but their pants seem to run HUGE.

Unfortunately, I don't think many of the pants that I have will fit. I am starting out this pregnancy smaller than my other two..and by 8 and 10 weeks each time I as already busting out the maternity jeans. This time... I'm still have to comfortably fit in even size 6 skinny jeans. It's very strange...I'm definitely showing already..but am not outgrowing my regular pants....baby's just pushing all my insides up into my stomach I guess. I'm not sure when I'll be wearing them....I would imagine within a month.

Not sure what all has changed I mainly just wore oversized shirts and sweatpants last time since I stayed home. This time I wanted actual maternity clothes so I bought some maternity shirts the day after I told DH I was pregnant. I haven't been able to wear ANY of my regular pants for at least 2 weeks. And the maternity shirts are SO comfortable compared to my t's that are already tight! So I would say I've been in maternity clothes since I was 7 weeks along if not a little earlier.

I'm about 5"10 and it was almost impossible to find maternity pants before. I looked on Old Navy.com and they did have some pants in talls, and not too bad of prices either! I'll have to check them out.

I wonder if H&M has tall maternity stuff...

Right now, I'm in yoga pants... I'm only 7 weeks so not big enough for maternity, but too big for my pre-pregnancy pants... My shirts still fit though. Last pregnancy, I didn't wear any until at least 15 weeks. I agree about Old Navy jeans they're super comfy. I get a lot of stuff off ebay. Really cute clothes for cheap and I don't mind pre-owned at all.

Just got back from buying my first maternity clothes- my MIL gave me a gift card to Motherhood- I was really dreading it- but they're actually ok. Sooo comfy after battling regular jeans/pants for a while.
