Hiyya! I have been very very busy nesting and completely forgot to write about my maternity clothes haul. But I’m sure it is never too late to share this as some of you might be in your mid-pregnancy right now and your baby bump is just about to show. I am 5’2 and weighed 48 kilos before I conceived. Maternity clothes in my size were not easy to find in Dubai. When I visited Maternity shops, the sizes were too big for me. The best office clothes I got from asos.com which sold a variety of maternity clothes for as low as £12. Of course they had many overpriced ones too but I picked dresses with reasonable prices and those of which I can still wear after giving birth.
Here are some photos of the Maternity dresses I got from ASOS.COM. I highly recommend their clothes. I wore Maternity UK 10. Their dresses are tailored to fit your growing tummy all throughout your pregnancy.
For a working mom like me, a black pair of trousers is also essential. But as I was avoiding anything that is snug on the waist, I opt for a loose fitting cotton pants with a stretchable waist rather than one with a zippy. And believe it or not, I found my perfect pair at the sports section of Marks and Spencer. I found it very comfy and easy to wear with regular stretchy tops.
Because pregnancy is only 9 months, it is practical to invest on a few dresses for work and a couple of comfy PJs for home. It is never advisable to go crazy in buying maternity clothes. I made a few purchases here and there for leggings with belly pockets that I only wore until the end of the second trimester. They sure helped for a couple of months but had I known that I will be in a tummy growth spurt in the last few months, I would’ve stick to the sporty pants I got from M&S. Remember that your body will go through unbelievable changes so be wise in picking up items during your pregnancy.
