Anyone NOT ready for maternity clothes

Ok, I keep seeing all these posts about how everyone is SO bloated and how their clothes really are not fitting.  I will admit that I have some of my "tight jeans" that are even a little more tight but by all means they still fit.  I am not ready for a bella band nor am I ready for maternity clothes (although both are increadiby comfy).  Am I alone in this?

    I wasn't in maternity with #1 until 30 weeks.

  • WAHHHHHHH! I'm ready for them, but I refuse to buy them:( I am 8 weeks today.

    I'm with you.  I thought I would be able to make it through the summer since this is #1.  I have not wore jeans in a week and half.  I'm on to dresses and stretchy skirts.

  • I'm feeling a bit bloated these days, but not ready for belly bands/maternity clothes yet...I'm a FTM & a bit overweight to start with, so I'm not sure how this affects maternity clothes requirements.

  • I did not switch to maternity clothes until I was about 20 weeks, that said I did need new bras before that since my tatas grew from a 34 dd to a 36 J

  • My clothes fit fine as well. They are actually still a little loose bc I had lost weight before getting pregnant.

  • I'm not looking forward to making the jump again, especially since they are the same ones I just wore all last spring/summer. I was so tired of them by the time he was born I just wanted to wear real, non-stretchy clothes again!

  • The past few days, although I can fit into my pants, they are really tight. Today, when I took them off, I had a red, inflamed line on my belly where they were cutting in. So yeah, I put on maternity pants instead. Honestly, a belly band would also be just fine as this point, and I am not in maternity tops, but the pants are so much more comfy than the belly band, so why not?

    I think I was in maternity by about...maybe 20 weeks? 25 weeks? with DD.

  • Me, but I am ready for sweatpants, dresses, pajama jeans (yes...I own them, but they really are awesome). Maternity would fall off of me right now, but my regular pants are not very comfortable.

  • I'm just getting to the point that by the end of the day I'm ready to unbutton my pants or jeans. I enjoy spending the weekends in my yoga and workout pants.

  • I was able to wear my regular low rise jeans the entire pregnancy last time, and didn't need maternity shirts until around 6 mos. This time, I feel like my shirts are already snug :(

    This!  I can put them on and button them but they are tight and uncomfortable.  I guess I'm more worried about comfort than whether or not I'm wearing a belly band, stretchy stuff, or maternity.

  • Not ready mentally for sure, physically it's getting close but this is #3 in 3 years. I plan to stay out of maternity clothes as long as possible! For me getting comfy = putting on too much extra weight.

  • I don't have a lot of bloat so my clothes are fitting just fine. I'm a FTM so I know I'm supposed to start showing later so I'm hoping my clothes will be fine for months (maybe I'll just need a bella band in a couple months)

  • I'm not ready at all. I thought I'd have at least a little bump considering I've done this before.

    I was a little over tired and probably didn't phrase that well... still not totally awake. My point was I don't like maternity clothes and want to stay in my regular clothes as long as I can before the switch. With DD I gained way too much weight and didn't get it all off before getting pg with DS... I'm just trying to be healthier this time and not overindulge in the "eating for 2" mindset.

  • I didn't get into maternity clothes with my first until 24 weeks. Not in any as of yet, although I know it'll be a lot earlier this time aground. I feel kind of silly wearing maternity jeans with just a bloated belly.

  • I agree, definitely not ready for maternity clothes. But, I was on Clomid for 6 months prior to getting pregnant. So, that lovely drug put 10 lbs on me. With the current bloating, I had to break down and buy some summer clothes one size larger than I normally wear. Hopefully, I can wear these for awhile before actually having to think about maternity clothes.

  • I wore my tightest jeans Friday and they still fit - granted, after I pigged out on Mexican food I felt like I needed to unbuckle them but that was definitely not the baby!  I know I'll have to get some maternity pants/jeans this fall because none of my pants are baggy enough to grow with me but I think I'll be able to make it through summer.

    Totally agree with you. :) 

  • Since I stay at home, I'm mostly a t-shirt and jeans kind of girl.  It definitely makes it easier to stay in my regular clothes v. maternity.  I've been using a rubberband to hold my jeans closed, but other than that, I'm still wearing all my regular clothes. I will say that some of my scoop neck tees are looking WAY better on me recently :)

  • At this point with my first pregnancy (nearly 13 weeks) I was definitely still in my regular clothes.  I think I started wearing my pants unbuttoned around week 15-18 depending on the fit. 

    This time around, I busted out my maternity jeans today.  My body changed so much earlier for the second one.

  • I so feel bloated, but i'm not looking forward to the "fat girl" clothes yet! Ha! I know it's coming soon though, but As long as I'm growing then my baby is growing!
