I'm 11 weeks pregnant and have nothing to wear. My normal clothes are too tight and don't seem to be big enough for maternity stuff yet. Does anyone have any recommendations or suggestions for this awkward in inbewteen stage? Or recommend any mat stuff that might work?
Yeah that loop in the button hole is a great tip. Also rolled down leggings so that your belly isn't squished.
Long loose tops are good. I'd suggest some cheap plain ones made from stretchy material. I got some from peacocks for about £8 the other day. Then you can wear your nicer tops over them and it doesn't matter if they come up a bit short 'cause your belly will be covered by the underneath top IYSWIM.
... ps you wait till you're 40 weeks and baby's still not here and all you've got to wear is DP's football top with a weird stain down the front
I went out and got a couple of pairs of over the bump maternity jeans and long vest tops (H&M brilliant for both and saw me through till about 32 weeks). I then wore baggy normal tops over those. Maternity jeans are so comfy and as someone who permanently suffers from builders bum in normal jeans I thought I would never go back!
I bought a pair of jeans in a larger size, which were useful after my Dd was born for a couple of months too. Then I boil washed and tumble dried them when I had lost the baby weight, they are a bit shorter but are slim so I wear them inside boots.
I lived in leggings or jeans using the bobble trick with oversized jumpers for the first few months before I could get in my maternity stuff. I got fed up with wearing the same stuff so tried to mix things up a bit with jewellery, head accessories, scarfs etc
I moved into maternity clothes at 11 weeks. Second baby. At 31 weeks I rarely make it into anything other than maternity leggings. I got multi packs leggings and tops from h&m. Got lots of under bump jeans but don't find them comfy and they fall down when I am on the floor playing with toddler.
I also recently gave up on bras and my heartburn magically disappeared
So I caved at the weekend and brought two pairs of casual maternity trousers and they are so comfy. Also were massive reduced so only £15 each which I thought wasn't bad. Least I have something to wear now. Did resort to the hair bobble trick with my existing jeans and actually worked quite well so thanks for the suggestion ladies
