Pregnancy Style #1
When I was about half way through my pregnancy with Mads I started looking at clothes to cover my growing bump. There was not much in the maternity sections that I liked. Why just because you are pregnant does it give you an excuse to look like a 'Mum.' Don't get me wrong, there are a few nice places to buy maternity clothes that don't cost the earth- think ASOS and Gap, but most of the ones I found were not me at all.
Therefore I mostly boycotted the maternity sections and lived in leggings and slightly bigger sizes in tops that I would have worn pre-Mads. I think I bought a couple of maternity jumpers and tops and that was it.
This time I seem to be encountering the same problem. My bump is big already so I am already out of my normal jeans. This time I am open to suggestions, and I am determined to find a nice pair of pregnancy skinny jeans that don't have one of those over the bump panels.
My dilemma at the moment is that in certain clothes I don't look like like I have got a bump- more like I have eaten slightly too many burgers, so I have been wearing tight things that show it off. Tight equals bump. Baggy equals people at work trying to guess if I have had a 'big lunch.'
I most certainly don't claim to be the most stylish person in the world, far from it in fact, but this is what I have been clothing myself and the bump in over the last few weeks of my pregnancy. It works for us, although Mr E has a bit of a phobia of patterned leggings. He says I look like his Grandma. If his Grandma had worn patterned leggings I would be very concerned.
NB. If anyone knows where to get a nice fitting pair of maternity skinny jeans please let me know. You would be my saviour! Or just nice maternity clothes.
