LOl, I'm doing the rubberband around the button trick too. All my comfy pants still fit and since I'm a SAHM, I dress pretty cas. I don't usually need maternity until mid of the second trimester.

Re: What do you wear in the meantime???

I lost 10lbs due to the hyperemesis but my belly is definitely out there and none of my regular pants fit (they are way baggy in the butt area due to the weight loss but tight on the belly). I think I'll dig out the maternity clothes this weekend. Of course this is my 6th pregnancy (hopefully 3rd living child)

I've been wearing yogo pants or black stretchy pants. I want to get some black leggings as well. I'd like to wait a little while before going full blown maternity clothes because I'm in denial

Re: What do you wear in the meantime???

I actually have put on a few pounds but clothes are mostly still fitting. I'm in yoga pants today because I plan to do yoga as soon as I get the time. With Pixie I was able to do the rubber band trick until close to the end of the second trimester, and I'm very short waisted as well. I like peasant skirts when weather permits, I just wear them under my belly with a stretchy shirt or whatever. I wore very little for actual maternity clothes, I'm too tall (37" inseam is HARD to find in maternity!!) Since I don't have to worry about office clothes this time I doubt I'll buy much of anything.

I switched to maternity at 8 weeks, the less pressure on my stomach, the less my sickness gets me.

I've actually lost 8 pounds, but I'm already getting a pouch.

Those oversized sweaters and leggings are great!!!. I got a t-shirt dress from lands end and that feels so comfy!!! I was sad they didn't have the regular t-shirt dresses at the store.

Re: What do you wear in the meantime???

I got a BellaBand and it's working nicely for my jeans, but I mostly wear leggings/tights and flowy skirts. I am still sort of hiding the belly until we officially announce, so I've had to balance comfort with disguise

I am showing so much more this time, even though I have only gained a pound or two. I have a couple dresses that make me look like I'm headed for the L&D unit already!

Jealous of all the sweat/yoga pants. I'm stuck in slightly too small business casual every day Right now I am just using a BellaBand with my regular clothes, because maternity clothes are still HUGE. Unfortunately I am gaining weight fast this time since I have to eat constantly to keep from getting sick.

I am definitely showing and cannot wear regular pants unless they are sweatpants.
