So i have been living in baggy clothes of late but next week have an event that calls for me to get into some jeans. Just tried to get mine on and i cant even get them over thighs let alone tummy. Is this normal? I have put on 3lbs since falling preg. Too early to get mat jeans??
I got maternity jeans around this time because I was so so bloated! I ended up back in normal jeans from week 12-18 but don't regret buying the maternity jeans - so much more comfortable than normal jeans digging in all over the shop!
I was leggings only from 6 weeks for both my pregnancies. My jeans mocked me. I'm a size 8/10 usually but piled it on during the early weeks. I had two normal pregnancies with two healthy babies and didn't gain an unhealthy amount overall but the early bloat was evil. Mat jeans are designed for a biggish bump so will probably be very loose on you. Maybe jeggings?
Jelly - if it really is the case that you can't get a pair of jeans over your thighs that you could a few weeks ago, I really think you ought to seek medical advice. As many of us have said, this is not a normal early pregnancy symptom (bloated stomach yes - swollen legs no).
I'm 28 weeks and still wearing my normal jeans, just with a bump band to adjust them for my stomach.
