YANBU. Funny enough was just saying the other day how I think I'm going to keep my mat jeans as my normal jeans after this pregnancy. Elasticated waistbands are the way forward!!

That's why I'm still in mine when DD is 8 weeks not because of all the fat

If my ginourmas bump hadn't stretched mine I would still be in them. (DD is 3 blush)

YANBU! Top tip for a long distance flight! So comfy.

DD is almost 4 and I still wear mine blush

BillBrysonsBeard Sat 27-Feb-16 09:31:27

Still in my maternity leggings and DS is 2.... blush I like how far they come up!

They don't make the maternity jeans I had last time anymore!
It was one of the things I was really looking forward to about being pregnant.
They were so soft and comfortable. Any recommendations would be welcome please!

Maternity jeans are awful, they don't stay up. I just wore tracksuit bottoms when pregnant so didn't have to put up with maternity trousers

Just yesterday I had a big wash on so wore an old pair of jeans (2 sizes bigger than my usual size) and they were so much less comfortable! Maternity jeans all the way.

new look jeggings are great. I wear them a lot. Cant wear normal jeans

Comfy they may be, but I couldn't wait to be out of mine and get back to normal, "proper" clothes. I can't wear an elasticated waist forever!

I wore my trusty Top shop Leigh maternity trousers for the last time the day I went into labour, and then after the birth I wore leggings/yoga trousers until I could fit back into my old jeans.

It might sound daft, but the mat jeans just hid the fact that I still had - and have - a huge mummy tummy. DD is four weeks old now and I think if I were still in the maternity jeans I wouldn't have the same need to get the weight off, IYSWIM?

And normal jeans are as comfy if they fit properly, right?

I can't stand the under bump ones they just fall down. Struggling to find some over bump ones I like and that fit. I need a short leg so any recommendations would be great.

Good jeggings do similar, or ultra high waist.

Low rise is rubbish.

OhIfIMust Sat 27-Feb-16 12:20:57

@moregilmoregirls topshop Leigh over the bump ones are great. They do a 30 leg. Love them.

MoreGilmoreGirls Sat 27-Feb-16 16:36:29

Thanks I'll give them a try

Just celebrated my youngest's 7th birthday and wear my favourite pair of maternity jeans on a regular basis blush. I have bought ordinary jeans since just none so comfy and flattering.

BackforGood Sat 27-Feb-16 17:16:03

Oh yes. YANBU at all. smile

Unhappyexpat Sat 27-Feb-16 17:38:00

High waisted jeggings.
H and m do surprisingly good ones, as do marks.

Woobeedoo Sat 27-Feb-16 17:40:58

I adored my H&M over the bump maternity jeans. So comfy, so flattering.

queenMab99 Sat 27-Feb-16 19:34:33

You are so lucky, in the 70s the only maternity jeans I could find were in mothercare, they were limp, baggy, and about 4inches too short for me, I wore my usual levi 501s with a loop of elastic from the top button hole, across the large gap, then hooked around the top button. until it became too uncomfortable to bear.

queenMab99 Sat 27-Feb-16 19:35:47

Should have added, covered with a long top of course!

jusdepamplemousse Sat 27-Feb-16 19:35:53

YABU - maternity jeans are awful fally downy bastards. Cannot WAIT to get back into normal zip and button jeans (39 weeks pg and so, so ready to be not pg anymore!).

Seriously though, under bump, over bump, they just slide down taking your knickers with them . What is comfy about that?!

Why are people who have just sprogged worrying about their weight?

It is not a concern for at least 6 mo imo
