when did you start buying maternity clothes?

I'm only 6 weeks, so I know there's no need for me to buy maternity clothes, but I can't help wanting too! Chat Icon I'm addicted to shopping and I know it would be stupid to go out and buy regular clothes, but it seems silly to go and buy clothes I won't even fit into for a while.
So I was just wondering when you felt you needed to start buying maternity wear.

I started buying pants around 9 weeks b/c my pants were getting tight and I wanted to be comfortable.

Old Navy and GAP have "starter" style pants which I am still wearing at 16 weeks. They are like regular pants with a some elastic on the sides. They are really nice.


Have fun!

I started buying clothes at around 9 weeks and I have been wearing them here and there since. I am almost out of all my normal clothes.

Re: when did you start buying maternity clothes?

I didn't buy the belly band. I bought my first pair of maternity jeans around 7 weeks, but I didn't start wearing them until 9 weeks (I was still wearing regular pants also up until 4 months or so).

It really depends on how you're carrying. I'm very low and all out front, so pants went fast for me.

Re: when did you start buying maternity clothes?

My advice is even though it is very exciting, don't rush to buy any maternity clothes yet. If it's your first you really have no idea how you are going to grow. I bought a bunch of stuff early in my pregnancy thinking I would be huge and ended up not wearing any of it.

I'm 14w 2d and still in all my regular clothes. I started buying around 7-8 weeks because I started buying summer stuff on sale because I knew I would need that and some stuff I found on sale for work. I haven't worn any of it as I'm still waiting to start showing instead of looking fat. Chat Icon

I bought pants around 8-10 weeks, and I could hold out on tops longer. But as I neared 36 weeks, it was maternity all the way. With the second pregnancy, it was maternity the minute I found out Chat Icon

Re: when did you start buying maternity clothes?

I use the belly band everyday. I still wear all my regular work pants, but just don't button them for comfort. Instead I put the band ontop to keep them up. It's been a lifesaver for me. The only maternity pants I wear are jeans, because they are more comfy. I'm 14 weeks 4days and I'm totally showing already!

Re: when did you start buying maternity clothes?

I bought pants around 10 weeks, and shirts around 17-18 weeks.

I know it's hard not to buy, but try not to buy so much, it's so hard to tell how you will carry and where you will gain.

I have grown out of some of my shirts already, and a pair of pants and I have 10 weeks to go!

Re: when did you start buying maternity clothes?

Target has great maternity pants for the beginning of your pregnancy. The Liz Lange pants that have the true waist have buttons on the inside to make them bigger as you go along in your first and second trimester. At 23 weeks, I am just now wearing them with the buttons on the inside open all the way. They still have zippers and buttons and look like non maternity pants. Old Navy also makes them, however, I don't know if they have the buttons on the inside.
