I was wondering how people find them..
When I was pregnant last Mothercare did them where they ended on your pelvis/under bump and then were elastic up to your naval.. I always found they dug into my pelvis and I could only bear to wear them for a couple of hours.

Thinking ahead I wondered how people find the new designs :) And how they are on larger tummies - i have my own 'bump' of a tummy still that they'd sit under and I'm not sure how I'd feel in that sense.

Sorry if this isn't making sense.. and yes I'm getting ahead of myself as I'm not 5 weeks yet! lol

I find them very uncomfortable too. Although I lost all my excess weight last year I was left with an overhang and find they dig in. Personally I like the over bump fit it's so much more comfy.

Thanks Lisa Marie :) I'll have a nosey around when the time comes :) M&S do over the bump ones so will head for them or soft trousers :) I have jeans up to a large 18 (almost a 20), so that'll help though they are baggy on the legs now.

Hiya,

I personally prefer over the bump as I find them more comfortable.

I have bought loads of maternity clothes from ebay as a cheaper alternative. I have discovered "Blooming marvellous" and would highly recommend their clothing to anyone who is looking for comfy maternity stuff.

Thanks for the blooming marvelous recommendation :)
I don't really want to go bigger clothes this time on the bottom half anyway as looked fat with my first - I was heavier then but my legs look lost in bigger jeans etc at the moment and they won't fit my waist for long. I'd like to keep the slimmer legs, larger belly look! lol
I have a fair few tops that I have room to grow into so that's not a problem.
