PrettyWifey: When did you have to start wearing maternity shirts?
I am 18 weeks pregnant with my first baby. I lost 7 lbs and have only gained 2 lbs total so far.
I am wearing maternity pants since my belly feels bloated, but I can’t wear maternity shirts yet. Right now it just looks like I have a small pouch that no one really notices.
When did you have to start wearing maternity shirts? I feel fat when I wear my regular shirts so I am covering up with sweaters!

i started wearing them when my regular shirts got too short and the bottom. today’s styles of shirts are cut longer so if you don’t get really big you can wear them your entire pregnancy.
I wore sweatshirts until I got to 7 1/2 months. I also lost weight at the beginning! At 7 1/2 months I finally ventured into the maternity store.Answer by nicole b

I’m 32 weeks and I can still wear my regular t shirts. I have been wearing maternity jeans since I was about 4 1/2 months. Through the cold months I always wore sweat shirts. I guess about a month ago I bought 2 maternity fitted type shirts. Try something fitted, not ballooned out. Target has good stuff.Answer by missperfect20022003

I am 22 weeks pregnant and I started wearing maternety around 16 weeks.
In the beginning, people couldn’t really tell if I was pregnant or that that pouch was just the remains of a large lunch, but I felt a lot better because the clothes were not tight and uncofortible any more. I could breath.
Now, you can’t miss that I am pregnant and frankly, I love it!
Don’t wear tight pants and who cares what people will think, pretty soon, you’ll start to show a lot more and there will be ni mistake about it.
Congrats and good luck!Answer by wondering mother
it is normal to lose weight in your first trimester due to morning sickness, but it all depends on how fast you gain weight to determine when you will need to wearing maternity shirts. I didn’t wear one until I was 5 months.Answer by Hendrixj
Congratulations! I had to start wearing maternity clothes tops and bottoms since I was 14 weeks. I can still wear 2 of my regular tops because they are long enough in the body. I’m fairly small and i’m showing quite a bit now – 17 weeks today.
if you lost the weight due to morning sickness, i would think you would be okay but i would talk to your doctor about your weight lost/gain if you haven’t already.
Cheer up – overnight you will be showing and people will notice. I have a number of girlfriends that didn’t really show until they were well past 22 weeks.Answer by Nicola L
I never needed to. I never needed maternity pants either, although I bought a pair I was able to wear my regular jeans throughout my pregnancy and I carried my daughter to 41 weeks, she was 7.4lbs at birth.
Noone even noticed I was pregnant until I was 36 weeks…that’s the first time anyone asked about it anyway. I didn’t find out myself until 22 weeks! I’m a size 8/10 and 5’7 so God knows where I put her!
Congratulations with your pregnancy and good luck!Answer by cuddlesam
When you feel like it. Congradulations on your pregnancy! Right now all the regular styles look like maternity wear anyways. Just know that once you start wearing maternity clothes, everyone and anyone will now come up and ask you the same questions over and over. “When is your baby due? What is it? Whose the father? Are you married? Are you sure you’re not due next week?” It just goes on and on and on….Answer by Ian and Kelly
I am only 7 weeks 1 day pregnant but I already had two children already. Every time you have a baby you show quicker? With my first baby I didn’t start showing a little pouch until I was in my 4th mth maybe even close to 5th. With my second, I started showing as early as 3 mths. Now with my third….I’m afraid to know when I will start showing lol But I am sure it will be around 3 mths.
When I was pregnant with my first baby people started noticing I was pregnant around 5-6 mths. I always felt the same way you feel. All bloated and didn’t want to wear any maternity clothes until i looked more pregnant. But after the first I started realizing how much more comfortable it was for me to just give in early and wear them. Good luck and congratulations.Answer by obrien
