    Just wondering if my tummy is growing or I have been indulging in too many bars of choc in the last week or so. Have been away for a few days and found my favourite jeans really tight, so much so that they were digging into me - last week they fitted perfectly. Anybody else similar? Thinking of just getting a bigger size for now - what do you think??

    Hi Dippy..

    Glad you had a lovely time in NY.. bit cold though I expect this time of year!! I remember when I lived there the snow drifts would block the roads and the corners of streets would be like snowy mountain slopes!!

    As for maternity gear.. I too suffered from tight waist syndrome [you will see many older threads on here where Tankett and I [and others!] moaned about our waistlines disappearing very early on!! I just wore jeans and trousers a size bigger until I really could not do up the buttons on anything I owned so purchased some maternity gear a few weeks ago.. would have been around 14 / 15 weeks I think.

    Welcome to the world of not so glamorous early pregnancy.. say goodbye to your waistline for a while :wink: :wink:

    xx

    I had the same questions Dippy. If you look at this post from me, I wasn't 8 weeks yet when I had to get maternity clothes.

    Don't hang about girl, if you need them, get them. I also found they really helped with the nausea as they didn't press on my tummy. Honestly, don't hang around, go and buy them now.

    I agree with Sarah and Tankett.. just buy some mat clothes now so you can get excited and look great at the same time!! Fortunately for me I have a huge variety of sizes in my wardrobe as I was a bit larger a couple of years ago and kept my size 14 stuff just in case...!

    So far bought lots of jeans and combats for slouching at weekends.. next is great for maternity I think and sizes are normal.... now I am waiting for Spring to properly arrive then I will be buying fun summery maternity stuff by the bucket load!!

    happy shopping Dippy.. so thrilled for you :wink:

    Thanks for your replies guys, my first day back at work today after a few days away, and felt like I looked so bloated!! Found a pair of pants that felt quite comfy, so will hold out for as long as I can. Got a load of maternity clothes from my sister who was pregnant last year so will have a root through those at the weekend, think that's the end of wearing my 'normal' jeans for now though!! OH joked that there might be more than 1 in the tummy:shock:

    Hey There

    My clothes are getting too tight for me now also!

    Couldn't actually fit into a pair the other day! Think I will have to go shopping for some mat clothes sooner rather than later. :D

    I was in maternity jeans/trousers from 12/13 weeks......but only a few weeks ago have i had to buy maternity tops, as my bump seems to poke out from the bottom of my normal ones, and some are far to tight.

    Like some of the others have said i highly recommend next maternity wear....their stuff is great!!!
