But I'm tempted!

I'm only 10 weeks, no bump yet of course but I've eaten so many delicious carbs, and I'm looking to wearing lovely comfy maternity jeans again smile

When are you/did you making the switch?

I started wearing maternity clothes about 16 weeks? When my bump wouldn't fit in anything else!x

About 7 weeks. I got fat fast chocolatecake

It about 18 weeks one I couldn't get into my normal jeans any more.

Still getting away with wearing lots of my normal clothes now and am 27 weeks. T sheets, some dresses and leggings all still fine to wear, but I do love my maternity jeans, so comfy!!😃

About 7 weeks- dc3 so bump popped out very early!

Yep my bump showed early. I'm 14weeks now and been wearing maternity jeans about 6 weeks now..

I used a bump band.

I did the whole hair band in the button hole thing to get another few weeks out of my clothes, but I still was in maternity jeans by 10 weeks.

Around 18 weeks but prior to that I was uncomfortable in my normal clothes for a couple of weeks. When I started wearing maternity trousers it felt like I was going out in pj's! So comfy

Don't fight it

My THIGHS got fat shock with both of my DDs. Arms and thighs. Stomach, face etc pretty small. So yes- in maternity wear or dresses early on!

Noodledoodledoo Sun 26-Jun-16 15:32:33

My two pairs (one over, one under bump) are still too big for me and I am 36 weeks!!!

I hate wearing them - spend the whole time pulling them up. Normal jeans are a no go.

Oooh, I love my topshop joni maternity jeans! I got a pair in black and a pair in blue and have been living in them since about 18 weeks. Elasticated waistbands are the best thing about pregnancy! Not sure I'll give them up afterwards grin, so I would say if you'll be more comfortable in them at 10weeks then just wear them!

soundsystem Sun 26-Jun-16 21:03:26

Ooh, glad I'm not alone! I might give it a go soon. Annoyingly, I just got back into my pre-DD jeans!

SpecialStains I know, after DD1 I was really reluctant to swap back to normal jeans, even when I could fit. I never thought I'd love the elasticated waistband so much!

First time round I got to 26w before maternity wear, I'm a chubster.

This time I dug them out at 12w - it's been bliss! Do it.

I still sometimes wear maternity clothes and DS is 2.2. grin

I suspect when #2 happens it will be from the day I POAS.

Whenever you feel comfy in them, even before bump belly can be sensitive and bloated xx
