When did you need to start wearing maternity clothing?

I am just 5 weeks pregnant and now that sometime this winter I will be in maternity clothing, just wondering when i might need to start looking for clothing?

  • before I was pregnant I usually wear loose and flowy tops so i didnt need many shirts. I bought pants when i was 6 1/2 months pregnant

  • It depends, 4-5 months probably, when your regular clothes feel tight.

  • I needed maternity pants before my first trimester ended. I don't think I needed any maternity tops until I was about 6 months.

  • around 6 months---but i'm a bigger woman so i wear them sooner than i needed to so i would look pregnant and not just fat.

  • I started wearing maternity pants at 4 months because they are comfortable! I could wear my regular clothes til about 5 1/2 months. I wore many of my regular shirts the whole way through.

    Buy as you go. Maternity clothes are expensive.
