Clothes

Hey ladies, I was wondering about how soon or at what point did you start showing. I'm already pretty bloated from IVF so I'm not fitting in my regular clothes. I am going on vacation and need to buy some summer clothes. I'm trying to get a idea how soon I'm going to be growing. Thanks girls!

    The IVF bloat will go down and you'll be back to normal for awhile.  Don't expect to start showing until 12+ weeks. 

    This was not my experience.  I went from IVF bloat to bump with nothing in between.  I wasn't able to wear my regular pants starting even before my BFP w/o a belly band.  Started wearing maternity pants around 10w.

    Natural m/c Oct. 2005

    Dx: balanced translocation and LPD

    TTC since Oct 2011

    BPF 02/19/12, EDD 10/31/12, natural m/c 02/28/12 (4w6d)

    IVF (BCPs starting 10/30/12, ER 11/18/12, 5dt of 1 beautiful, healthy embryo 11/23/12)
    BFP 12/02/12, u/s @ 6w,5d showed 2 HBs! Identical twins!!
    Bed rest from 21w-35w due to short cervix, hospital bed rest from 23w-32w due to PTL

  • Hey lady!  Good to see you on here!  I was REALLY bloated from my 1st beta to about 6 weeks then it went down.  i'll be 9 weeks on Tuesday and can still fit in my regular pants, but they are starting to feel tight (actually more in the hips, not the belly).  i am tending to wear a lot of dresses to be comfortable and only wear dress pants to work 1 or 2 days per week.  i'm assuming i'll start needing maternity clothes around 12-14 weeks.  congrats again!
    Me (37) DH (39); PCOS changed to Unexplained, changed to DOR in 2012 (finally a correct diagnosis!);

  • I started showing (noticeably) around 12-14 weeks. That's when the questions started. I was pretty dang thin prior to getting pregnant, so any extra bump-age was pretty obvious! I was in maternity pants by then -- I hated the Bella Bands, so elastic waistbands were my go-tos. :) I just needed extra pants -- I wore my regular tops for quite some time -- it was probably around 18-20 weeks I started dipping into the actual maternity tops.

  • I'm not sure if it was the IVF bloat or just the way my body reacts to those early pregnancy hormones (I also had the intense bloat with a TI pregnancy), but I was huge from day one. I was in maternity jeans at 8w and full blown maternity clothes at 13w.

  • I didn't do IVF, but I was wearing a belly band around 8 weeks and maternity pants around 13 weeks. Tops around 15 weeks. But it was in between seasons and my second pregnancy. You could probably get away with nonmaternity dresses/skirts at least for a good bit of the summer depending on the cut.

    Me too. The IVF bloat combined with my short torso made me have an early bump. Maternity pants are so comfy! I'm glad I didn't wait to start wearing them.
