  • Dresses are a great way to go, and leggings with baby doll shirts.

  • wait just to be on the safe side. I mean, you can always work out later to fit in the clothes, but just wait.

  • If you get an A line dress with stretchy material it would work for after and during. It is all how you shop. Baby doll dresses work well too with some leggings that aren't too constricting.

  • I bought several things in a size larger than I normally wore, and was able to wear them up until 7 months or so. It was nice having clothes that fit after the baby was born until my body got back to normal again.

  • I wasn't even showing when I was 26 weeks, and still wearing all my normal tight clothes. But then in the next month, i totally expanded. You'll start getting bigger here in the next few weeks. I was wearing size "small" clothes up until 26 weeks and then have just been wearing "medium" ones now. You can wear them after pregnancy, but they will just be a little baggy and comfy. I wouldn't buy a whole lot of clothes right now, because you won't be the same size after the baby as what you are now.
