  • 1st pregnancy- never bought maternity clothes! I did have to wear overalls the last 2 months but that was it. I went into the hospital and they were trying to call NICU and I had to keep explaining that my due date was the next day. had a perfectly healthy baby

    #2 about 16 weeks.

    #3 at about 13 weeks.

    the more pregnancies, the sooner you will show.

  • I was bloated and constipated for most of the 1st trimester so I wore a bella band when pants were just to uncomfortable to button. But at about 14 weeks, I had to get new clothes. My pants are a good 5 inches from buttoning. and I am almost 20 weeks now.

  • I started to show early because I was pregnant with twins so I think I was about 3 months and then about 4 months it was really obvious I was pregnant. By the time I was 4 months along I had out grew my clothes.

  • I bought my first pair of mat. pants around 13 weeks....but I really didn't start showing until 6 months, then I couldn't fit into ANYTHING, lol. It happened all at once too. I know that I've still got a way to grow, but I hadn't gained anything, but my appointment after I hit six months showed me gaining 10 pounds in two weeks!!!good luck!

  • Where I live we have a store called "Baby Moon" I got it there. If you go to, there is a store locator and maybe there is store near where you live. Good luck, I loved my Bella Band
