Topic: 11 weeks and already in maternity clothes?
I wear scrubs at work, and at home I am usually in yoga pants/pajama pants, so maybe this is why I didn't notice I was growing, but when I have to wear real clothes (i.e. Go out to dinner, visit a friend, family function) I can no longer get any of my pants zipped. I have to use the Belly Band thing so that I can have my pants undone and they still stay up, and I've broken out the long but fitted maternity tees. Is this normal? I wasn't expecting to need to wear maternity clothes until I hit the second trimester.
I know the baby is only the size of a fig. Maybe it's pushing my fat up and out, though? I wore "regular"clothes (meaning black capris with the belly band and a top that is not maternity but roomy from NY&C) to work one day last week because my Dr appointment was over my lunch break, and every time I went toget a patient out of the waiting room I noticed people looking at my belly.
