    Well I decided I needed some maternity trousers this weekend - as I cant do the top buttons up on any of my jeans or trousers for work!

    I went to mothercare and bought a pair of black trousers for £35 then went to new look and their maternity range is great! I got 3 tops (in the sale) and a pair of jeans for £32. I also bought a couple of things from H&M - their range is very good -but the sizes are weird!

    The trousers from mothercare a little big because I still dont have a proper bump but I am sure I will fill them pretty soon!

    I've got a couple pairs of the mothercare early term jeans and they're really comfy. They were good for me because they were available in petite length. I'm only 5ft and have problems with trousers being too long too.

    I bought Next maternity jeans and they are huge - really long and big. I bought Argos Addition jeans and they are long and also sized on the biger size as my usual size is falling off of me. I'm having to wear them though as I have nothing else to wear now and my usual jeans are simply no good any more. They will do up but I end up feeling ill from the restriction around my waist.

    I'm sure I'll grow into the Additions ones soon! LOL.

    I've got all of mine from Dorothy Perkins, they are perfect fit and they also do a petit range, good prices too.

    I found the same thing in Mothercare...my usual size was too big.
    I'm usually a 14 of late so took a 14 and 16 in the changing room (just in case, not been watching what I've been eating so much recently so thought maybe the 14 would be too small)
    Was amazed to find they were too big and I needed a size 12, been a couple years since thats happened :lol:

    I got next maternity jeans last time I was pg and they were just huge and I couldn't wear them.

    This time I have got some bits from mamas & papas, new look and have ordered some things from vertbaudet, which I am really pleased with. Vertbaudet are not too pricey, and the clothes are really lovely and a nice fit.

    Urchin - I agree with you about the belly bands, it has meant I have been able to keep wearing a lot of my normal clothes and trousers.

    I hate maternity shopping - I'm faddy at the best of times and the smaller 'only' mainstream fashion hacks me off!! I'm normally a White Stuff, Fat Face chick (even if I do get most second hand from ebay!). Maternity shopping just makes me want to sulk because I won't pay full price for gear I don't like.

    I've bought a belly band and I love it but it rises up so I have to keep pulling it back down to work. My skirts still fit ok (the bigger ones) and I have one pair of trousers I bought a size too big that are doing well.

    I have a feeling I'll be winging it for as long as possible - maybe I'll make the Jan sales!
