I wouldn't go up as big as 16 tbh. M&S size quite big anyway imo. I would go for 14 for the pants and then maybe one pair of 14s and one pair of 12s for the trakky bottoms and see what fits best.

Hmmm just musing again.

Post dd I bought some size 10 trousers from Next (usually a small size 8) and they fit me for a couple of weeks ut I only got to 32 weeks before having here but I also had massive wound problems and had to accomodate a drain from my tummy for 4 weeks.

I would probably get 14s too. TBH I wore maternity jeans and my PJs after my section and it was fine. Didn't need any special clothes except for knickers and with those I just grabbed what was on the shelves (sizes 16, 18 and 22! - am normally a 12). As I pulled them basically right up to my bra it made no difference how big they were.

Gosh I must have been attractive in those early weeks...

I did have quite a bit of swelling after the op which is why I reckon enormous knickers are not a bad thing.
