How many pant sizes did you go up throughout your pregnancy?
I would like to have a game plan, for shopping reasons mostly. Since I'm not working, I'm trying to hit clearance and ebay as I see good deals. I do not have any of my maternity clothes from 5 yrs ago.
During my 1st pregnancy , I gained a total of 30 lbs and besides the belly, much of it was in my hips and thighs. I went from a size 8 to a 10 by the 3rd trimester. I am currently 8w and barely fitting into my pre-preg pants, a problem I didn't have until my 2nd trimester the 1st time around. I am thinking that I will probably need to start at maternity 10 and I may end up going through 2 more sizes total.
In your 2nd pregnancy (if applicable), was the weight gain like your first, and if not, does this strategy (10-12-maybe 14) seem sound? I expect I'll get a bit bigger than the first time around.
