Short and sweet: maternity clothes. I don't get why women WANT to wear them. I find regular pants unzipped/unbuttoned with a belly band more comfortable. I don't think it's necessary to go out and buy lots of maternity clothes. Maybe some things but overall most regular
Clothes can be worn or that's been the case with me. The essentials: belly band, leggings, 3-4 pairs if maternity pants, loose tops, cardigans and blouses that aren't maternity. I've purchased 4 long sleeves cotton tops, two tank tops, 3 jeans and 3 short sleeves blouses and have worn maybe three things once. I prefer my regular clothes.
