With my twin pregnancy, it was really early-around 11 weeks. With this single pregnancy, I really didnt "need" to wear maternity clothes until 25 weeks! Just kept sporting some of my long/bigger tops and stretchier pants. THis is our last pregnancy, so I really didnt want to waste money buying maternity clothes until as late as possible :)

This is my first pregnancy (girl) and I probably didn't really need to start wearing maternity clothes until I was about 24+ weeks, but I bought a pair of pants when I was 14 or 15 weeks because the snaps on regular jeans were uncomfortable and my ever so slight bump (or bloat...whatever...) was making it impossible for jeans to actually stay up!

15 - 16 weeks (he was my first). I could still wear non pregnancy shirts (if they were long) for a while after that, until almost my 3rd tri, but my belly sat low and non-pregnancy pants were out of the question pretty early on.

15-16 weeks with my first. This time around I pretty much went into them as soon as I started feeling the least bit uncomfortable in regular clothing. I think it was around 12-13 weeks.

With DD1 I wore my pre-pregnacy jeans to my anatomy scan at 20 weeks. With DD2.... woah bump..... I had to wear my pre-pregnancy business suit at 9 weeks and it was already getting tight. 8O By 14 weeks I was in all maternity bottoms.

I couldn't stand any pressure on my abdomen, so I switched to maternity bottoms at 8 weeks. My short tops were the next to go at 13 weeks... but I was able to wear regular Old Navy tops just one size larger than my normal size all the way through the pregnancy, even the day I delivered (!!!). I think that says something about Old Navy rather than about me, cuz I got huuuuuge...

Yeah, at about 7-8 weeks I was so bloated that I couldn't wear non-maternity pants. By the time the bloating went away, I had a true belly lol! I didn't start wearing maternity shirts until about week 18-20.
