Well I am fully into maternity clothes and have been for about a week (9.5wks). Which is a little longer then with DD (8 wks). I just could not stand the tightness of my regular clothes.
Anyone else with me? If not how have you been able to avoid them?
I'm there and only 7.5 weeks :P I agree that I just couldn't stand the tightness. My regular jeans are fine when I'm standing but not so comfy to sit in. Only thing is, my mat jeans are just a tad too big still. It was around this time with DS that I started wearing my maternity stuff too. I guess since it hasn't even been a year since I had DS, my body remembers the shape it's supposed to go to LOL!
ETA: Looks like it hasn't been long since your last LO either

Not there yet, thankfully. But, my jeans are getting a little snug. Everything else seems pretty OK.

Um, yeah.....my regular jeans already don't fit anymore, despite the fact that I have not gained any weight! Jeans are the only thing I am really wearing that is maternity right now. Everything else still fits in my regular stuff, I just have to use my belly band to keep my maternity jeans up and cover the panel so no one can see it since I am still wearing regular tops.
I'm 11 weeks 2 days today and I've been in maternity clothes since between 5 and 6 weeks. Gah! Although I think a lot of it may have been bloating. My jeans just felt too tight and it was uncomfortable so I either wore elastic waistband pants or maternity ones. Shirt wise, I only recently began wearing a few tops.
Although I know my hips have already gotten a little bigger because my pants I wore before my 2nd were way too big after I had her (weird huh? I went DOWN in pant sizes after having my kids) and now they fit nice. I guess that's the plus side of keeping clothes that I couldn't wear before.

I have not yet had to move into maternity wear (thankfully). But I think the only reason is because all my jeans and pants were too big right before BFP. I had lost a lot of weight last spring and over the summer so my work clothes didn't fit to start...now they do fit me but still aren't snug. Thankfully I still haven't gained any weight...I even lost a pound!
Oh yeah, it's maternity clothes-ville for me too. No need for maternity tops, but definitely bottoms. Even my athletic shorts with elastic waistbands are uncomfortable-- I have to wear them way down low on my waist so they're not sitting on my belly. I need to go shopping very soon!!
I was totally in them by this point with DS2 but this time (knock on wood) I seem to be still fitting my reg. clothes perfectly. I'm actually really really shocked cause I thought for sure my body would be showing my secret long before I was ready to tell and because my LO is still only 10 months. I'm still down below my last pre-preg. weight but have put on 6lbs already so I don't know what gives.

I am definitely not able to wear most of my jeans anymore, just because of how uncomfortable they are. I had also lost some weight, and hadn't gotten rid of the pants 1-2 sizes up yet, so I can wear them even though I look like a clown because of the extra room in the thighs. Also, I am OK with more tops that show my figure, because looking pregnant isn't such a bad thing, now that I actually am pregnant.. HAHA!
