I have an interview for a job I really want. It's a level and a half above what I do now so I'm nervous and excited in equal measure. I know I could do the job, and they approached me, so it's not insane to be going for it, but I'm feeling a bit imposter-y. And I want to make sure I look the part, so I have one less thing to worry about!

It's media, so it's not a turn-up-in-a-suit affair. I'd usually wear a dress, blazer and heels, or some skinny/cigarette trousers, with a crisp white shirt tucked in, blazer and heels.

BUT

I'm 13 weeks pregnant with my second. I'm in that horrible stage where nothing I own really fits me properly, but I'm not big enough for maternity wear. They don't know I'm pregnant, and I'm not planning to bring it up at this stage, but nor am I going out of my way to conceal it. I don't really have a bump as yet, but nor do I have a waist anymore sad

I feel frumpy and I need to feel confident and in control. Any suggestions for outfits or shops/brands would be really welcome!

I'm early 30s, size 12 with ok arms and legs but a huge bloated middle.

Please help me!

could you wear something like the stretchy whistles skirt - or the stripey skirt that was really poplar last year - anything with a stretchy waistband.

I bought a couple of empire line dresses to wear with blazers when I was at this stage.

Ooh stretchy skirt is a good idea, thanks.

I do have a lot of empire line dresses from last time round but I'm not getting along with them as well this time, I just feel huge. It's fair to say I'm not "blooming" this time!
