How far along before you wear maternity clothes? Does the pants touch your belly button?

I can't stand pants touching my belly button. Thats my reason for the extra part to the question.

Do you have to wear maternity pants?

  • I was about 22 weeks. I bought bella bands and wore them till I was too big for my pants. I am now 38 weeks and switched to only Yoga Pants!

  • I am not showing yet but I've already switched to my "bigger pants" just to keep myself sane - cause I worry too much.

  • I wear either cotton stretchy goucho pants that aren't really designed for maternity, or the full on maternity pants that clear my rib cage. Those feel like a really clingy shirt. I cannot STAND the under the belly maternity pants though because they either cut into my stomach or ride on my belly button, which drives me nuts too.

  • I started wearing maternity pants (not the panel-type) around 16 weeks. I never wore the panel-type ones; they were horrible.
