  • No. I guarantee the only one uncomfortable was you.

    The uterus is a very strong muscle and doesn't yield much to everyday pressures, pants included. It might make your legs or something fall asleep from constricting the blood flow, but doesn't affect the baby.

  • i'd say 90 percent of women wear pants too tight! neat trick though, use a hair tie to keep your button open but attached to the loop.

  • it could effect your circulation, and that is not good

  • Its going to affect circulation if they are too tight. Any pants that leave that little "line" or "mark" on your skin after being worn are too tight for you to wear during pregnancy. :(

  • It wont hurt thebaby but it's super uncomfortable for mom! Especially once your belly starts getting hard and doesnt give. A rubber band looped into the button on the pants will let you wear them unbuttoned and no one will know as long as you have a shirt on long enough to cover the button. Same for a hair tie like someone else said. Thay also make the bella bands that go over the top of your pants to allow you to wear your pants longer (unbuttoned without them falling down) and no one can see. I used mine for awhile and now i just broke down and bought some maternity pants. Im 24 weeks.
