How far along were you when you started wearing maternity clothes? What was your first maternity purchase?

I was about 4 1/2 months when I started wearing maternity. Honestly, we didn't find out about the pregnancy until 17 weeks lol...and I wasn't really showing then, just thought I had gained some weight. But literally one week later, my pants wouldn't fit and I started showing a LOT really quickly, so I went and got a pair of maternity jeans and two t-shirts.

with my first I believe I started wearing maternity clothes when I was about 4 months along because they were more comfortable then squeezing into my prepregnant pants...  Then with this pregnacy I have already started wearing them (am only 6 weeks) because of comfort reasons again..  My first purchase was a pair of maternity kapris(sp?)..

I bought some pants probably 3 weeks or so ago? I probably reeeally didn't need them yet...but they're soooo comfortable so I don't care. That's it so far though. Still not really showing so, don't really need them yet I guess.

I had to get maternity pants at about 12 weeks.  I could still wear my jeans if I wanted.. but they were just tight enough they were no longer comfortable.  So my fist purchase was 3 pairs of jeans on one shirt.. just cuz it was really cute. lol.

I was uncomfortable in my pants and was unbuttoning them before I knew I was pregnant. The day the test came back positive (I was close to 8 weeks), I bought a pair of maternity pants because I figured I was gonna need them anyway.

I was super bloated early on.

I'm on my 3rd baby in 3 years... the first baby, I think it was around 4-5 months. The second baby was more like 3 months... with this last one, I think it was a matter of weeks! LOL

i bought my first pair of maternity pant at 7 weeks.. I was really bloated and needed pants to wear to work.

I went back to prepregnancy pants until about 13 weeks.. now I'm in all maternity pants (except my comfy sweat pants) and some tops

I got the belly band at about 5 weeks, jeans just would not button!! Bought my first pair of maternity pants at about 8 weeks. I started showing very early! Now I'm in nothing but maternity!
