    Default At what point in pregnancy did your pants start to feel tight?

    I have noticed recently that my pants are starting to feel tight, especially when I'm sitting down. Sometimes I have to undo the button on my jeans because it starts to hurt my tummy.
    As I am only 7+5 weeks I'm wondering if this is likely to be my tummy getting bigger due to pregnancy or if its maybe due to the fact that I have been a little over indulgent lately

    So, as the title says, I am interested to know when other ladies' clothes have started to feel tight in pregnancy

    At about 5 weeks in both pregnancies. I'd lost weight at that point both times, but had bloating and definite increase in tummy size by that early point.

    I started bloating about 6 weeks and found my tummy was really sensitive which made wearing my normal clothes uncomfortable (jeans especially would dig in!). I started losing my waist really early thanks to all the bloat -sigh-.

    I swapped my usual work pants for maternity pants around 12 weeks though. I could get away with wearing slightly looser pants and lots of skirts/dresses up to that point lol.

    I'm nearly 11 weeks and still in my size 8 skinny jeans they feel a little snug at the buttoning point but I reckon I have a good month's worth of wear out of them.

    I do need to occasionally undo the button if I've eaten lots and sat down. It's my first so think that makes a difference. Can see a definite roundness of my uterus though.

    I was about 8 weeks and out of tight jeans but it was my butt n thighs not my belly, no weight gain at that point so thanks hormones. By about week 16, any of my none elastic wasted pants were out. I'm 20 weeks and put on 6kg.

    I was about 15-20 weeks, but everyone is different! It depends on your existing body shape and whether you're carrying low or high. And how much you've been overindulging

    With DS tight pants like jeans were getting uncomfortable around 18/20 weeks. This time around I started bloating pretty badly around 8 weeks and haven't been able to stand anything tight around my belly (am now 14 weeks). Luckily we're getting into warmer weather so I can just wear maxi's/ shorts & singlets!
