  • I am in maternity pants and I am 10 weeks along. I have been wearing my "normal" pants without buttoning them lol, but I got sick of doing that, so I just busted out my maternity wardrobe! This is my 3rd pregnancy.

  • Yes, with my 2nd and 3rd it was a lot sooner. Just wear what is comfortable, this is one time in your life where people think that it is ok to have a bump instead of a perfectly flat tummy. (I didn't even have that before my 1st...) Don't try to squeeze into your normal pants, just be comfortable.

  • I was 8 weeks when I had to start wearing maternity pants with my second. But I had a football sized cyst on my ovary. My SIL has to start wearing maternity pants at 6 weeks, though and that's just because she gets big quick. This one I had to start with the mat clothes at 11 weeks, and now at 14 weeks I can still wear two of my regular jeans, but for the rest I'm in mat.
