  • When you grow out of the clothes that fit you of course, lol. If you sew, it is really simple to make your own and it's alot cheaper. Also, look at buying a belly band. They extend the life of your regular pants and are only like $10.

  • just because your pregnant, doesnt mean you HAVE TO buy maternity clothes...I wore my regular clothes till about my 8th month of pregnacy...and I felt a lot better in my regular them whenever you want, as long as YOU are comfortable!

  • Not until you need them. I wore my regular clothes through my entire pregnancy. I had one pair of maternity pants.

  • Not until you need them. Then try them on before buying them. Not all pregnancy clothes in the same size are created equally lol. I also suggest the belly band.

  • Oh no...I'm definitely a maternity clothes wearer. LOL. With my son I started wearing them when I was around 6 months. I have to dress for work so I needed to get a whole new wardrobe basically. The thing is Old Navy is having a 50% off sale and I was getting a bit anxious. I'm only 2 months now...
