anyone still in regular clothes?

i'm behind most of you as i'm not due til the 25th but curious if anyone's still in their regular clothes?

i'm still wearing my regular clothes. my jeans i'm only just now starting to do the hair tie trick but other than than i can still button up my shorts and things like that. i'm glad because i really don't like maternity clothes and i'm awfully cheap!

with DS i was in maternity clothes by now. but i also think that part of me just wanted to be in maternity and i probably didn't need to be.

anyone else?

Yeah...I'm pretty sure that I'm partly wearing maternity clothes because I want to. So, I guess my short answer is that my pants fit but my shirts sort of don't? My pre-pregnancy low rise and mid-rise jeans aren't a problem, but most of my shirts and tank tops are getting a bit too short.

I can wear most my clothes with a rubberband but at my last appt I was measuring 22 weeks so I am result starting to look prego...some clothing is a little uncomfortable if I can't unbutton it...with my son I didn't start wearing maternity clothes til later. Right now I am wearing a pair of maternity capris out of personal choice to be comfy rather than have something tight around my belly

I finally gave in to maternity pants for my work pants. My jeans are fine but my more tailored work pants just weren't looking very good anymore. I was tired of looking and feeling like 10 pounds stuffed in a 5lb bag! My shirts are fine, maternity shirts look redic, I did pick up a couple baggier shirts. And I have had a couple people guess I was preg so I must look bigger than my normal self. I fit really well in to the Motherhood Maternity medium secret fit belly dress pants so I just wear those and roll the secret fit panel and it's not much of a problem. And it's more comfortable than my work pants which mostly don't have buttons so the hairtie trick wouldn't work Sad

I am in about half and half. I have maternity t shirts, which I wear all the time. I kept a few out even after my last pregnancy, simply because they were comfy (not loose or big) and longer length. I can wear a couple pairs of my regular shorts, a couple pairs of stretchy waist pants/capris, and for jeans I just wear maternity jeans, even though they fall down some. Beee I was in maternity clothing with Jack at 14-15 weeks.

on a related note, I tore through my attic today searching for my maternity shorts/capris and summer pants from last time. I have struck out so far, but have two space bags and a LARGE bin to look through. I dont' think I should have been moving those heavy bins, but I was on a mission!!! I want my secret belly capris!!!

I am in regular shirts, I just wear the ones in my closet that are a bit longer. Do sweats count as regular pants? That's what I am mostly wearing, with some maternity pants also.

Ha ha, we all know I'm not in regular clothes!

I switched to some maternity pants at 8 weeks, and I've been in full time maternity (except some long stretchy tshirts) since about 11 weeks.

I'm about half/half at the moment.

I wear stretchy tunic tops and leggings a lot of the time when I'm going out. I have a couple of pairs of maternity jeans because my other ones are now digging into my belly, and a couple of bfing tops which i wear.

When I'm at home I wear my daggy gym/yoga pants with the elastic waist and hoodies.

I was going to ask the bolded!:p I am usually in yoga pants. I think just before I got pregnant I gained 10 lbs(I don't actually know though, just felt like it). I think that is my problem, not so much pregnancy weight.

I am a big girl and was in the process of losing weight so most of my clothes were my workout capris and tanks lol. Also most of my shorts are elastic waisted ( again cause I am a big girl) Most of my jeans/jean shorts that were in my new smaller size are not fitting ( cant button them or zip them) but luckily I have lots of stuff with eleastic weight.Plus size maternity clothes are hard to find and to be totally honest are too darn exspensive for this momma of 4( almost) to pay for to wear for just a few months.I am totally ok with my eleastic waisted pants lol.I do have some of the bigger clothes I put away when I lost weight this past year that I am able to put on now and keep them up.I am going to invest in some maternity tops though, bigger tshirts make you look frumpy instead of pregnant lol.

te he....oh no. Not me. I have been in full mat clothes since 14 weeks. There no way this tummy is fitting into anything. I do have some reg longer tops that I wear. I feel I always have to tell people that I have just gained 5 pounds as I have quite the tummy. I am hoping I am loosing elsewhere and just gaining in the tummy. I love mat clothes!

I wear maternity pants to work, as my usual ones just didn't cut it anymore, but I still wear my pre-pregnancy jeans and probably will throughout my pregnancy... I am using the hair tie trick and I bought one of those bella band elastic cloth pieces to go over my jeans and my belly. I had to cave in with the shirts about 6 weeks ago. This is baby #4 and there was just no hiding it! I too am very particular about maternity clothes and hate most of them. I got into some old boxes and thankfully found a bunch of maternity clothes from baby #3... so I don't have to do any new shopping!

I'm still in all my regular clothes as I'm barely showing, but I like wearing my maternity stuff too because it's comfy. Sure doesn't fit though lol.. I was small last time too (despite the 9 lb baby).
