    I bought ripe maternity ones. I was given a pair of pumpkin patch ones from a girl at work she used when preg and found them comfy as anything.

    I got a belly belt. Still comfortable at 24 weeks but not sure about later on. I got it from babybunting. I'm worried about how maternity jeans might fit (sizing etc) as I can't get them in a brand I usually get so would have to get a brand I haven't tried.

    Eta: hoping that by the time I'm bigger, I'll ditch the jeans alltogether & wearing dresses and/or tights & leggings.

    I've bought some cheap jeggings from Crossroads in a size larger than I usually wear to keep me clothed during the in between not quite showing period. One pair were $7 one pair were $5. They are stretchy with a bit of give. When I'm bigger, I'm going to unstich the sides and sew some elastic wedges in to make them materity jeggings. Easy, and means 2 skinny leg maternity jeans for under $20. I wear jeans to work, I intend to live in these!

    I got 2 pairs for $99 from jeans west ad love them but I'm regretting spending so much because most of my pregnancy will be in summer so jeans won't be a big item on my to wear list.

    Had 2x jeanswest jeans and 1x jeanswest shorts both with the band that is attached and goes over the belly. These have been so worthwhile until I was about 28 weeks. - now I don't like stuff over my bump. I also had some low ones with the side elastic like you mentioned from target. These are no good now as bub is head down and does NOT like it when I wear them haha. So just in dresses now until it comes. Will prob use them all after it comes until I'm back in my regular clothes.

    Oh and I have a band from big w but really don't use it stay in your clothes as long as you can because maternity clothes get so boring towards the end!

    I had the target jeans! I loved them. Until the end. Then I felt like everything was too tight.
    But I loved them. I also second the maternity leggings from target.

    I have a pair from target with elastic where the front pockets would be. They're a bit big for me so I don't wear them, but the elastic is much comfier than something over my belly.

    I'm someone who shows early too.

    At such an early stage I just use an elastic band and loop it they the hole and put the other end around the button.

    The belly band was still too big for me at 6 weeks and so I kept having to pull my pants up.

    So it looks like for now I dont need to invest in anything. Just grab a hair tie and long top! Awesome!

    Once thats no good Target jeans and leggings. I wore their leggings last time they were great. I never wore jeans with my first!?

    As most of my pregnancy will b in summer I think some good maxi dresses will b the way to go too!
