  • WITH THE FIRST IT WAS ABOUT 5 MTH, BUT WITH EACH CHILD AFTER THAT IT WAS SOONER (3-4 MTHS) I TIED A RUBBERBAND AROUND THE BOTTOM AND PUT IT THROUGH THE HOLE. THAT WAS A BIG HELP!

  • I was walking around with my pants undone at 10 weeks and in maternity pants (AKA sweat pants and pajama bottoms) at about 16 weeks.

  • I think I started wearing maternity panties around 12 weeks...maybe 14 but everyone changes differently. I took my best friend maternity clothes shopping at barely 10 weeks because her panties were cutting her circulation off and she looked 4 or 5 months preggers. She was really tiny pre pregnancy (104 pounds) so she got bigger faster because she has to gain more weight than adverage. Plus it's her second baby and many people show early with the second one because the uterus has been stretched before.

  • when I was prego the first time I think it took a while til I started wearing maternity clothes, this time I have been ready for it the past 2 weeks (I am 10 wks tomorrow). Have the same thing as you with being uncomfortable feeling aynthing on my belly

  • If you go to Motherhood Maternity or online and find this elastic belly band you will love it....in my opinion. I was able to wear some of my regular clothes up to 7 months. It fits comfortably around your waist or hips and you can leave your pants undone and they will not fall off. The only thing is that sometimes I had to pull them up and readjust but it was well worth it. I even wore it after my son was born. Here is a website that is just like it.

  • I'm 8 weeks and on my second pregnancy. I'm thinking I have to switch to some maternity pants soon. My belly feels claustrophobic and it kinda makes me feel nauseous when it's restricted. Some pants I can still wear fine, but I'll be slowly switching over to the stretchy ones! :)

  • Ughh with my first I didn't wear them until I was about 5.5 months! This time around however I'm showing way sooner! I will probably have to go over into the maternity pants within the next few weeks. I am 11 weeks now and my normal pants are snug on my stomach and tend to annoy me.

  • I refuse to buy maternity clothes and just buy bigger sizes in the juniors department till I am big enough to just steal hubby's clothing.
