Sometimes it's nice to get advice from experts with a lot of letter degrees behind their names, but other times, you just need to hear what another parent (with a M.O.M. behind her name) has done that has worked. You've got questions? These moms have answers.

I am 12 weeks pregnant and need some advice on clothes! I haven't gain much weight yet (maybe a pound or two) my work pants still fit but my shirts are feeling uncomfortable. I don't think I'm quite ready for the maternity shirts yet as my stomach hasn't popped yet but my bust line is! Any advice for not having to buy 2 or 3 sets of new clothes throughout this pregnancy!

You may not need maternity cloths yet, but you will in a few months.  I bought a few shirts that are very long and not extremely tight so they would fit at the firt, I am 5 months now and they still fit, but also maternity cloths.  If you look around you will find shirts that dont look maternity so you can wear them now and when you get bigger. You don't want to have to redo your wardrobe 3 times during the next 9 months, unless ofcourse you have money to blow.  good luck
Check out old navy online. They have a whole section called "the whole nine months", you can wear it through out and still look cute. 
When I was first pregnant I just bought larger sizes and kept to the sale or clearance racks/stores.  then as those got too uncomfortable I bought maternity clothes.  you will still wear maternity clothes even after the baby is born, you will still look about 4-5 months pregnant leaving the hospital.  Since it's summer time, you can do maternity sun dresses and they will be awesome!  I lived in mine during the summer months.
