Did you start wearing maternity clothes earlier in your second pregnancy?

Im only 11 weeks and I think I need to go buy a pair of maternity jeans! I know they say yo are already stretched so you will show sooner that you did with the first. So when did you bring on the maternity wear?

  • There is a great website called Get Heavenly.com. everything is $17.95 and under and although it isn't maternity clothes. I wore there tops all through my pregnancies. They are flowy and comfy.

  • I was either in my second or third month when I started wearing them with my second child. I had all my maternity clothes saved up from my first child so I didnt have to do the rubberband thing. I also found maternity clothes way comfortable! I was getting a little larger then I was in my first pregnacy at that stage.

  • im 16weeks with my second baby and just now having trouble buttuning my pants. My suggestion is if you are having to buy maternity clothes try and wear what you have for as long as possible. iv been zipping my pants and then using a rubber band to keep them closed up by the buttun. works well and you cant tell if your shirt is long enough. although its only a temperary fix.

  • I think I was somewhere around 4 months with my second child when I started.

  • I just had my first, but I needed to start doing the rubber band trick at one month! Two months postpartum, I'm still in my maternity jeans...I may never go back to real pants, these are too comfy! :)
