Best time to buy maternity clothing is in the first to second trimester. In my first pregnancy, I wear maternity dress in my fifth month. Now that I am pregnant with my second baby, surprisingly I find wearing maternity dress comfortably in as early as my first trimester (third month). Although I can still wear some loose jeans, there is an ease of movement when I use maternity clothing.
Since I love the comfort of wearing the maternity dress, I started buying some maternity clothing. I gave some of my used maternity clothing before to my friend and I just keep very few of it. In buying maternity clothing, I am a smart and budget-wise mom. Let me share to you some stores where I bought cheap and affordable maternity dress.
