Ha! Good question!!! Today, I'm wearing a bellaband...much more comfy than trying to button my pants....over the weekend I bought a pair of pants and a few blouses...the Gap has a great selection! I'm trying to stay in my regular clothes for a few more weeks, because I haven't told work yet, but I'm already uncomfortable....mostly right after I eat. How far along were you when you went for the maternity clothes??

Hey Bonnie-
I was pretty close to where you are. Although my clothes fit they were really tight in the tummy. So I just switched to the maternity pants...as for shirts I stayed in mine for a while and then just gave in, you can find alot of maternity shirts that don't look maternity so I got away w/ it for a while but people started finding out when I was around 12 weeks. People to this day say I still don't look prego, but naked I do! Dr. says I am growing just fine, normal, so I told all the of the people that say I am not popping that they are going to jinx me, one day I will wake up and won't see anything but tummy! But so far so good, love the stretchy tummy pants, they are awesome. Gap is good and they don't look maternity. When are you going to tell people? after the 1st trimester? good luck and enjoy it.

That is exactly where I am...tight in the tummy
 
I'm so happy to say that! I have told many people, but not work. I will tell them around 12 or 13 weeks. I tried on some m-pants at lunch today...they are still a bit too big. I think if I wait it out another 2 weeks or so, I'll be better off. I guess I'll just stick to the "bellabands". What a great invention!

We wanted to find out initially, but K crossed her legs on us, so whilst we had an inkling it was a girl we couldn't be certain until the birth. It was frustrating at times, having to buy gender neutral clothing only etc, but the suspense was fun too! The midwife respected our wishes to discover for ourselves and I really loved that! If you decide you want to know I hope your bean co-operates for you!
 

I phased in maternity clothes slowly, some of my trousers I could still wear at 20wks pg - but can't get into again now!
 
I found the stretch/cummerbund type of trouser was the most comfy in the long run and grew with me best, but still had to go get more trousers right near the end as my hips streeeetched to max capacity! I always really enjoyed the letting out of the button type though, made me feel truly pg and reassured me I Was getting bigger. (People were telling me I didn't look pg until well into the third trimester) My family all kept telling me I was huge though!
So glad your 9wk scan went so well!
