Okay, so maybe I'm exaggerating but I experienced a sudden growth spurt around the 24th-26th week of pregnancy.
I could no longer wear my ordinary jeans, shorts and even pajamas. I slept wearing only a top. For a while there, I looked like Winnie the Pooh.
Maybe he hated the way I look, so on my 20th week, my husband took me to Mamaway in Shangrila Mall. He demanded that we need to buy new maternity pants and that I should start wearing pants again!
He also bought some maternity jeans and slacks from Zalora to make that I have no excuse in looking like a sexually-ambiguous bear.
The ones from Zalora were significantly cheaper but they proved to be useless because the bands covering my belly are not that wide. When I climb up the stairs or when I sit down, my butt crack shows!!! I still wear them occasionally.
The pants from Mamaway are the best! The bands are wide and they cling to my belly. I can move around without them slipping down. They are stretchable so I can wear them until I give birth.
They are made with 97% cotton and 3% spandex. The pants are so soft and comfortable. It's perfect for Philippine weather!
I didn't buy a lot. I only got 2 pairs because I don't want to get use to this level of comfort. I plan to lose the weight and wear my old jeans as soon as possible. In fact, I only bought 3 maternity dresses.
Next week, I really need to get new bras. My breasts also had a growth sprout of their own. I swear, my areola even grew wider diameter! Mama told me that this is my body changing in preparation for breastfeeding.
If I exercise, I'm sure my flat tummy will return. But there are no crunches for breasts! So I also don't know how to reduce my cup size after giving birth...
Anyway! If you want to buy my comfortable maternity pants or buy maternity/nursing bras, you can find Mamaway Products in:
