    Default Belly band or maternity jeans?

    Im only 6 weeks but already my jeans are tight.

    So just wondering what others did during this stage? Did you try one of those belly bands so u can keep wearing ur regular jeans? If so how did u find them?

    And if not at what stage did u get maternity jeans? Im guessing its way too early for them anyway.

    I bought maternity jeans but ended up selling them because I wasn't into wearing jeans to begin with and found them uncomfortable. I bought 2 belly bands ( bought them from a eBay seller who makes them because it was cheaper) and wear those with skirts I can't do up, I find them pretty comfortable and have worn them from 16 weeks.

    I used one of those "belly belts" with my jeans. It was okay, but I wouldn't say it was awesome.

    Once I got bigger I found myself not wanting to wear jeans at all, so I never bothered buying maternity jeans. No advice on that front I'm afraid. At least I've bumped this thread for you

    I wore my normal jeans for ages. When the button didn't do up anymore I used a tiny hair elastic to hold it together looped through the hole and around the button. I ended up buying one pair of cheap mat jeans from kmart which were comfy but a little bit too short. Then I ended up wearing tights a lot cause they were comfier. I was going to buy a belly belt but I'm glad I didn't cause I wouldn't have worn it!
