@Littlebean912:  I was able to wear regular tops (flowy or empire waist style) for a while but I started wearing the full panel maternity pants a lot earlier. I had a lot of bloating in the later part of the 1st trimester/early 2nd trimester and regular pants were just so uncomfortable. I really tried to wear dresses or tunics with leggings & boots when I was in that in between stage. There is definitely a time where the bump isn’t cute and it just looks like a beer gut do at that point I stuck to non-form fitting clothes. Once I got bigger and more obviously pregnant then I wore the tighter tanks and shirts.

I bought some pregnancy pants around 14 weeks not because I needed them but because I didn’t think I’d have another trip into the city for a while.  I was even embarrassed shopping for them because I wasn’t showing at all.  But I found with the pants that have about a foot of elasticized top, they fit me great right away and continue to be my favourite pants.  

I say start wearing maternity early: they’re comfortable and you’ll get more use out of them!

I got a pair of Gap’s Demi panel pants (really low) that I wore with a belt and they were loose enough to make me comfortable during the beginning of my 2nd trimester. Other than that I lived in leggings and long shirts.

I definitely recommend switching to maternity pants sooner than later. The comfort is amazing, I tried to wear my regular jeans with a bella band and was amazed at how much more comfortable my maternity pants are.

I got maternity jeans around 11 weeks. They felt so amazing!I would totally start looking into switching it to a maternity wardrobe.

I started wearing maternity jeans at about 10 weeks, because I found my regular jeans really uncomfortable, and hated the idea of wearing them undone, even with a bella band. I bought those, and a bunch of maternity tanks, and those are my usual go-to’s (mat jeans and tank with a pre-preg cardigan). I have quite a few ‘fashion’ tops as well, but they tended not to look as good until later, and I only wear them out. I would suggest buying pieces throughout your pregnancy, and starting early, so you get the most wear out of the pieces!

I am at week 26 now and I am wearing my black jeggings with tops that’s longer. In fact, I didnt buy a lot of maternity clothes. My baby doll dresses still works for me, and I can wear those before / after / during pregnancy.

A bella band really helped me keep wearing my old pants for a while. I didnt buy maternity clothes until I was into my 2nd trimester but thats because my bump was teeny. I also just bought some shirts that were a size up from my regular size so they fit me even though they werent maternity clothes.
