Yes, you read that right. I managed to get through my pregnancies without having to buy maternity clothes. And it's not because my belly was so small that I didn't even have to; I just didn't want to. Why? First, they're expensive; and second (at least for me), there's not much variety.
Instead of spending money on something I know I won't be able to use after I deliver, I stuck to what I already have (sweater dresses, empire cut tops/dresses, loose tops/dresses, etc.) as much as I could. I maximized wearing jeans by using hair elastics (I did the same with shorts if I needed to wear one). Find the complete step-by-step guide here.
