I do the low rise (although no thong for me - never could!) regular panties. IMO not worth spending extra on new maternity ones!

My DH would be in heaven if I wore a thong EVER. He always tried to get me to and I would occasionally to humor him, but I found them SO uncomfortable and my butt looks ugly in them, lol.
I did try maternity panties with DS1, but I found them less comfortable than my regular ones. I ended up just buying my regular ones in the next size up. A few months back, I bought some hipsters on sale, but I got the wrong size and they were gigantic so I never wore them. I'll bet they'd be comfy now that I'm packing on the pounds, and they were really low rise in the front, so that might be nice to accommodate the belly. I'm going to have to give them a try.
