Maternity clothes-Did you wear them?

 One of my friend's insists she didn't wear any maternity clothes her whole pregnancy. I'm just curious how many others skip out on maternity clothes : )

If you did wear them, do you remember how far along you were when you started wearing them?

Yes I did because they are so comfortable. With my first I was about 18 weeks but I used them earlier each pregnancy. This is my fourth and I was in maternity jeans at 6 weeks.

I had cute young looking maternity clothes and I have had my kids at 17, 19, 21, and my next will be born just after I turn 24.

Yes.It varied when I started wearing them for each pregnancy.  It was earlier the more pregnancies I had.  My oldest I was 7 months, and my youngest I was 1 month.

I only bought two pair of jeans during the last 4 weeks of my pregnancy. I didn't need them until then. Some shirts that I bought, I just bought a size up. I didn't get my baby belly until I was 9 months. I have heard of a lot of people skipping them and just buying bigger sizes.

I did. I don't remember how far a long I was. I pulled them out already with #2. I'm only 9 weeks, but don't really "need" them yet. They're just comfy.

Yes, I wore some with my last 3 (my first I never got big or showed so I never wore any). I had a mix of actual maternity items and regular clothes that worked with a big belly. Nothing before about 20 weeks though, I always think it looks so silly when my friends are like 12 weeks and insisting they're showing and wearing maternity clothes, so I couldn't do it! Lol.

I was nine months when I bought some Capri pants for my baby shower. They are the only maternity thing I own. The rest I just got a size up
