Will my jumpers fit this winter?

I am due in March but just saw some lovely soft jumpers online which I've ordered in my usual size

As they are jumpers there should be a bit of give and not skintight - do you reckon they'll be wearable? I've not needed any mat clothes yet but will need maternity trousers soon!

I still fit into my size 10 jumpers and I'm 30 weeks!

I'm 13 weeks and already in maternity EVERYTHING as I've had a small gap since last sprog so everything is still 'stretched' blush

They should fit, but you may find you wont need them as you tend to be warmer in general whuke youre pregnant. unless you're me

I'm 35 weeks, due in November, and not needed any maternity stuff. I did lose 2.5 stone due to being sick though but still.
Then again, I also live in my pyjamas at this point. I Dont bother with jeans unless it's for the midwife...

My little boy was born in march and I wore non maternity jumpers throughout pregnancy. If they are stretchy enough they may last you over winter.

I wore maternity trousers from fairly early on (just so much more comfortable!) but thought I could continue to wear my normal jumpers throughout the pregnancy. Worked fine for a few months but at around 30 weeks even my larger and stretchier jumpers suddenly no longer fit, and I've had to do some quick emergency online shopping!

(And from this point on the baby is still meant to double in size/weight..??!)

Possibly. It depends on the fit. I fit into all my usual clothes (incl jeans) until I was 16 weeks. Then suddenly, nothing fit anymore. Cardigans are great for pregnancy though with a maternity shirt underneath and a scarf to keep you extra warm if you need it. If nothing else, you'll likely get a month or two out of them and then can save them for next winter.

I'm 26 weeks, first baby. I bought maternity jeans early on but my jumpers and floatier tops all still fit fine. I reckon your jumpers will be fine for a good few months yet. I have some baggy jumpers that will prob see me all the way through if I don't get too hot, due in Jan

I keep asking similar questions, but have realised there is no correct answer. Everyone is so different, that it is impossible to know.

I'm 13 weeks, 4 days and usually a size 10. I have already had to buy a lot of oversized tops, leggings and work dresses in Size 14.
So I think I will probably be in maternity clothes by December but who knows.

Hopefully if the jumpers have some stretch and you don't seem to be changing in size too much, you should be fine smile Fingers crossed!

Thanks everyone! I look forwards to wearing my lovely fluffy jumpers this winter

I don't want to buy too much mat stuff if I can avoid it until mat leave where I can wear whatever!
