I was feeling a bit of a failure because while googling for mat jeans I stumbled across some blogs along the lines of "...in size 8 clothes until went into labour, then was back in size 0 jeans minutes after delivery of twins" etc etc...which is lovely for them, but not really all that helpful for mere mortal mummies like me lol
At only 10 weeks with your first child maternity jeans will probably drown you, you are going to get a lot bigger! Wearing long tops and having the top button undone and using a hairband to hold things together will help for a bit then there are various extenders to do the job for a bit longer. Or you could buy a pair of jeans in a bigger size since you might need them post baby as well (although if you don't put on any underlying weight you'll be back to normal size pretty quickly, I was back in my normal clothes after all 3 of mine in a matter of days and then shrank while BFing).
it's only cuz I'm really uncomfortable, I haven't put masses of weight on (due to not being able to keep anything down... TMI....) but on the advice of the previous posters I just got a pair of skinnies from H+M in the sale (£10, free delivery!) but if they are big and I have to wait to use them it's not the end of the world.
Size up in jeggings? You’ll have the elasticated waisted but jean style legs and pockets. M and S £15 are decent and you could use them again in the post birth chunky weeks when you’d rather burn maternity gear than wear it but pre pregnancy wardrobe still a while away.
