In maternity pants, waaaaa! — The Bump
Pregnant after a Loss

In maternity pants, waaaaa!

Seriously the bloat has gotten so bad I can't wear regular pants, even yoga pants are tight and uncomfortable. Embarrassed

I'm super embaressed to be wearing them this early but what can I do? Other than sit around pantless I guess. Could be awkward at restaurants and such.

  • I say do what you need to do to be comfortable. No point in being miserable, or in jail because your pants less. ;)

  • No worries...I switched over early too, it was just so nice to be comfortable!  I'm not sure how quickly I'll go back to my regular pants, after having elastic all of these months I wonder why we even bother with buttons and zippers?!?

  • Well if it makes you feel better I'm only 5 weeks and the bloat has already taken over for me as well... I feel like a whale. I didn't even try and put on my jeans this morning I went straight for my yoga pants.

  • I've been defaulting to maxi dress lately.  I don't know what I'll do when it's too hot to even wear those.

    YesYesYes

    I hate buttons and zippers. they are fine when you are standing or walking around but sitting is so uncomfortable!! I love my maternity work pants already!

    I finally broke down and bought a Bella band last night. I thought I died and went to heaven! I can only imagine how comfy the real deal is.

    Side note, I work from home. About once a month I have what DH refers to as a no pants workday, and they're heavenly. They used to happen more often, but scrambling for pants when the FedEx guy uunexpectedly knocks is not fun.

  • Dude, embrace the stretchy waistband pants. They are glorious. I've been wearing them since barely 6w thanks to IVF bloat. Embarrassed
    Six years of infertility and loss, four IUIs, one IVF and one very awesome little boy born via med-free birth 10.24.13.

  • I was in them full time at 8wks.  It was bloat, but bloat because of baby so I think it counts.  Plus I do Pedicures from a tiny stool bent over.  Those buttons were killing me.

    Rock what is comfortable.
