What are you wearing?

I'm still in my regular pants, but have had to go up a size in shirts. My regular tops are now too short, and my belly button sticks out. Pretty soon, I'll have to make the switch to transitional pants (up 1-2 sizes), and finally to maternity clothes.

    I just switched to maternity clothes because I couldn't stomach the idea of going back into my "fat" pants.  I had lost 28 lbs just before getting pregnant.

    I have a few pair of regular shorts that still fit me, so I will wear those, otherwise, it's all maternity stuff now.

    I am wearing maternity clothes - I work at a casual company so I can wear jeans everyday and my normal jeans were getting really uncomfortable.  I tried the band, but didn't like that, so I gave in and wore maternity jeans.  They are glorious.  Not only are they comfy, but they look good and stylish.

    I'm wearing my regular clothes but need to use my beband for all my pants. Once school starts back up again next week I'll probably start wearing some of my maternity clothes. I'm actually excited to break into them - I've found some really cute stuff!

    I'm in regular shirts (but I was for a while last time too--my reg shirts are long) and fit in my regular pants, but already dragged out some of the smaller maternity pants I have because I'd rather be comfortable.

    I wouldn't do transitional pants unless I already owned pants a couple sizes too big--I'd skip straight to maternity.

    Still in regular clothes. I will wear a maternity shirt once in awhile but I have yet to make the switch to maternity pants. I haven't worn jeans though in awhile and wear a lot of stretchy waist bands.

    I am still wearing almost all of my old clothes (with a belly band for assistance), but I mostly live in yoga pants and tank tops. And I can't say enough about the comfort of a nice, thin sundress in the middle of this Florida heat! I went into Motherhood Maternity the other day and decided that I just wasn't quite ready for the transition....

    I can still wear regular tops, but I am in maternity pants now. I tried the belly band (hated it) and when I went a size up in jeans, the booty/hamstring area looked like I was a gansta. I love maternity clothes!

    I've been wearing maternity pants since about 9wks, lol. I still mix my shirts b/w maternity and my larger regular shirts, though.

    I'm in my regular jeans with a hair tie through the button. I found these amazing long tanks at H&M and bought 6 of them so I've been putting cardigans over them. I feel like maternity tops make me look bigger than I really am right now. 
  • Options
    I'm in my regular jeans still, and I can wear my normal tank tops, but I'd like to buy a size up so they aren't so tight. I feel like they emphasize my fat-that-is-not-yet-a-bump. I'm still not working very often though, so I usually just lounge around the house in a pair of boxers. So comfy :)

    I'm maternity jeans and pants at school with regular tops for right now - but almost all of my button up tops are getting too tight around the waist.  I'll have to pick up some tops this weekend.

    I agree. I have some  larger pants that I wear during the early stages of pregnancy, and then again during the postpartum period, when my maternity pants are too baggy.

    I'm in regular clothes, but not without the help of a rubber band while wearing pants, I only have one pair of jeans that still barely fits, i'm about to turn into maxi skirts and dresses. I'll be needing to get a pair of maternity pants for work sooner than later, that's for sure!

    I have been in maternity pants for 3 or so weeks now.  I am having to wear maternity shirts now, because of my ever growing chest.  I also realized that only about half of my maternity shirts from last time are going to work again this time (I was excited about saving money), because my bra size keeps going up.  Shirts I wore at the very end and right after I had DD last time, are already too tight....sigh.

    I'm still in regular pants and shirts.  However, my pants do not fit me well at all anymore and I have to use a hair tie to give me extra room.  I did buy some maternity jeans but have yet to wear them (I'm trying to hold out as long as possible).

    The selection of tops I can wear has dwindled significantly in the recent weeks.  Many of my tops are getting too tight and I feel funny in them.  Not sure how much longer I'll last in these either.

    I've been in maternity pants for several weeks, since I tried to wear my "fat jeans" with the hair tie and found i couldn't zip them at all, which meant the hair tie trick is kind of beyond help at that point. I can still wear some shirts I have that I bought because they're long, but I wear maternity shirts too and find they look more flattering most of the time. I have a bin of "clothes that are too small" and I add things to it as I grow out of them.

    Give in to the maternity pants!!!! Seriously, I waited way to long with #1.  Why not wear something that is comfy?

    I'm still wearing all of my regular clothes but I did just have to buy new bras yesterday.  I pulled my maternity clothes out of storage to wash them so they'll be ready when I need them.

    It depends.  I can still wear my jeans with a belly band and shorts but honestly I would rather wear my maternity shorts.  They look great and are super comfy.  As for jeans, this time around my maternity jeans from last year look ridiculous.  They are so big, which makes me feel good, and I'm thrilled to be able to wear my jeans with a belly band.  I tend to gain weight in the lower body first so this is a nice change.

    I've been wearing maternity jeans for about 3 1/2 weeks now.  My office is casual, and I grew out of my regular jeans a while back.  I can still wear my longer regular shirts, but my chest and belly make everything look so much shorter that I am not sure how much longer that will last.  I only have 1 maternity t-shirt so far, but I think I'll probably have to go shopping soon.

    i'm wearing maternity pants--it was too uncomfortable squeezing into my work pants, especially by the end of the day. fortunately a friend lent me about 5 pair of office-appropriate pants, so i don't have to buy as much. i want to try the bella band thing, but haven't bought one yet--it would be great if i could still get some use out of my regular pants!

    my regular shirts still fit, but most of them aren't long enough to cover up the super attractive stretchy waist band! so i've ordered some new stuff from Old Navy and i'm about to place an order at Motherhood Maternity too.

    You are totally right....I don't know why I'm waiting to wear maternity (do I think I will win a prize or something for holding out? Haha!) ok I'm going to tell my sister I'm ready for her hand me down maternity clothes!

    I am in maternity pants and have been for a month. My old jeans still button but were not all that comfortable. I didn't want to waste my money on larger sizes when I knew maternity pants were inevitable. lol My tops are all still mine, except a few I wear long tank under so no belly shows lol

    I'm still in my regular clothes but only a couple of my jeans will button anymore and usually I unbutton them when I'm sitting for a long period of time. lol Everything's getting pretty snug so I'm gonna have to start shopping soon.

    I'm still in all of my regular clothes.  Mostly because I don't want to buy maternity shorts, and mine are still alright because I bought them before I finished losing some weight last year.  But as soon as the weather cools off enough for jeans, bring on the elastic pants.  I would much prefer to be in maternity pants or comfy clothes than my regular clothes.  I guess most of my shirts are pretty stretchy so that hasn't been a problem, and my bump isn't really there yet either so meh.

    I have one pair of jeans and one pair of shorts that fit me if I use the rubber band trick. I SAH, so I wear a lot of yoga pants and t-shirts anyway and those still fit.

    I am in maternity clothes for a few weeks now. I've had some nice weight around my waist before pregnancy, so now I look like 30 weeks pregnant :(  In the end, it is what it is.

    My regular clothes still fit. Then again I lost too much weight after I had DS so my regular clothes were a tad too big. Last time I bought a few shorts a size or 2 bigger and they fit me for most of the pregnancy. Most of my shirts(the flowy types not tight shirts) and legging type pants fit me too so no need for maternity clothes! I hope I have everything I need this time around, I hate the thought of buying clothes that won't fit for long!

    I've been wearing my regular jeans with a belt, I've lost weight so far in this pregnancy so my pants still have some wiggle room. I'm also still wearing my regular shirts.

    I got lucky and went from winter to summer just as I outgrew my normal clothes. I went to the states for 2 weeks and popped, now I'm back home and spring is here. So, the summer maternity stuff I scooped up on clearance is perfect.

     

    My thighs outgrew all but my fat fat jeans. :-( by fat fat, I almost burned them a while back. Glad I didn't.

    I'm still able to wear all of my normal tops, but I had to get new bottoms. I had lost of lot of weight before getting pregnant, but gave those clothes away. My SIL just had a baby so she gave me all of her maternity clothes (but she's bigger than me to begin with) so I'll at least have some Winter clothes to wear. Hopefully I don't have to buy much.

    My regular pants don't fit well anymore. A lot of my shirts and dresses still fit ok.   Today was my first day back at work, so I guess I can't keep wearing yoga pants everyday!  I wore a dress today, but tomorrow will be my first day wearing maternity pants.  I'm kind of excited because they're so comfortable.

     Pre pregnancy jeans are ok with the Bella band, but not my fave.

    I'm at this point with my jeans and my dress pants don't fit anymore. A jean skirt of mine still fits, but as soon as I get home from school I change into yoga pants. I have a black pencil skirt that's all stretch and I wear that often. Otherwise, I bought a dress which is awesome but too hot for this weather, and a friend has lent me a dress from when she was pregnant last year - I think I might wear that today because it's short-sleeved and it's supposed to be hot out today. MM called me last night to say that they got jeans in my size so I'm going to the mall tonight to see if they'll work and then I'm not going to go back to my pre-preg jeans.
