State of the bump

I've got jeans from Gap and combat pants from Next with stretchy over-the-bump bands. My bump is still too small for them so regardless of efforts at rolling the band up to make it firmer they tend to slip down and chafe the inside of my thighs. I'm not sure whether the band would comfortably go over a bump thirteen weeks bigger than mine but I'd say there's a fair chance.

I would totally wear maternity dungarees if I could find them.

You have a bump too! Hurrah :-)

Oh! I didn't know you had a bump too. :) Congratulations!

While my bump was still on the smaller side I found those belt-extender things quite useful -- I think these are the ones I got -- ie I could carry on wearing my normal trousers but with an extra bit of elastic. I wasn't convinced by the 'modesty panels' they provide, I just wore a belly band and/or a long top over them to hide the gap.

I hadn't thought of dungarees, but googling for "maternity dungarees" suggests such things exist, & actually that might not be a bad idea... Another thing to hunt for on ebay -- thanks for the suggestion!

Oh, those belly belt things look quite good - thanks! I might try one of those. Looping hair bands through the buttonholes of my normal jeans worked for a bit but no longer gives enough extra stretch, plus you get a narrow tight digging-in bit.
