Pants not fitting already?!
 
I'm 6 wks 5 days (I think...give or take a couple days). I've gained about 1 lbs. so I know that's not it, but I had to bust out the hair band on the jeans button today. It was just too uncomfortable to have them buttoned correctly.

I remember being 10 wks with my second daughter and needing a little something like that. Anyone else having their pants not really fit anymore?

I'm right there with you, had to bust out the rubber band over the weekend! I'm only 6w4d, but there's no way I can wear my jeans buttoned. We were trying to wait to tell people until I go to the doctor in 2 weeks, but I'm not sure how much longer I can keep it hidden! At least for work, I wear scrubs, so those are super comfy! I just feel silly getting out my maternity jeans already!

I've been using the BeBand from Target. I hate that thing because it never holds the back of my pants. But I'm not ready to pull out maternity pants.

I have been living in yoga pants, but I was able to put on my regular jeans 2 days ago. It didn't last very long, so I figure I will be doing maternity pants before too long...Oh, well. Get some use out of them this time around.

Another good trick that I learned is to buy a cheap tank from Wally World, cut the top/straps off, and, ta-da, instant "belly band" :)

:giggle: I do the same but I get mine from the Goodwill They work really well if you tuck them into the bottom of your bra :giggle2:

Yup, I bought a belly band last week and have yanked out the maternity pants already. Probably doesn't help that I've been in denial for months about the weight I gained earlier in the year, but doing up pants went from not so comfortable to outright painful.

I hadn't thought about doing that but I will next time I wear it :giggle: I don't know if this is good or bad but today I was able to keep my pants up without the band (it's starting to get a big snug).

phew glad to hear I'm not the only one! I feel silly about it too. I don't know if I can do the maternity pants yet I have the all soft stretchy version from motherhood. I don't think they'd stay up. Perhaps I should do the tank trick or get a band! :)

My last pair of regular pants that still fit ripped last week so I've been in maternity jeans ever since. They're the stretchy top ones and still a bit big. My work/dress pants are getting tight so I'll be pulling out my larger sizes soon. I'm just shy of 9 weeks.
