Most of the time yes, but I do still have a few shirts that aren't maternity that I can wear. Plus I do that hair elastic trick with some of my pants sometimes. I'm now 31 weeks.

I try not too. At some point I have to give in and wear maternity jeans but usually I can get away with wearing regular shirts as long as they are looser and longer.

I'm probably one of the weirdos that likes maternity clothes. Somehow, they make me feel "more pregnant," which I know is ridiculous, but... oh well :) I'm only 21 weeks, but only barely showing in tight clothes. I wear maternity pants, and sometimes regular shirts and sometimes maternity shirts.

I have one pair of maternity shorts. The rest of the stuff, I got walmart leggings and big shirts. I'm not wasting money on maternity stuff.

i was in my 'fat' jeans with a hair tie around the button when i went into the hospital. i don't wear nursing bras or tops either. too much work, and way too expensive.

I wear maternity tops because they're more more comfy to me but since it's summer, I can get away with wearing shorts that aren't maternity.
I like the shorts I got from Old Navy....they're tie waist band, so they fit perfectly.
I know that come late September, I'm gonna have to buy some maternity jeans but until then.....

Sometimes. The closer to the end I get the more they are a necessity. A few pants still fit and some of my tops though. I'm at home on bed rest too so the only time I really "need" to get dressed is for when I drive to dd bus stop to get her (obviously I can't walk and it's half a mile away and she's 6) other than that some comfy pj pants and a tank top. I ordered 4 new sleep outfits, 2 with pants and nursing tops and a robe for each and 2 nightgowns with robes, also for nursing. Other than that I only have a few tops and a pair of jeans and a pair of jean shorts. My friend did go to a garage sale and picked up some clothes for me but I haven't had an occasion to need to wear them so they sit in my drawer. She did get me a whole bunch of maternity tanks that I use daily.
