Determining your size
Your last growth spurt was probably more than a few years ago, so it can feel a little foreign for your body to change so much so quickly. Fortunately, your clothing size doesn’t have to change even as your body does.
Maternity clothes at Motherhood Maternity are sized just like the clothes you buy now. Their maternity clothes are built to expand with you through the third trimester and even support you postpartum. If you’re a medium, you’ll be a medium at Motherhood too.

The staples you’ll live in
While you don’t need an entirely new wardrobe for the next few months, there are at least a few staples you’ll be really happy you invested in. Whether you live in leggings already or have never worn a pair in your life, you’re going to want a special pair to support you (and your bump) through everything that happens during and after your pregnancy.
Because your current denim certainly won’t grow with your bump, maternity jeans are clutch too. You’ll also want nursing bras that are gentle on your pregnancy breasts and easy to unfasten for quick nursing. If you’re having any events to celebrate your upcoming bundle of joy, you’ll want to have a dress or formal outfit that showcases your glowing pregnancy self too!

The nice-to-haves you’ll be reaching for
Okay, so you might not need a graphic t-shirt that says “Kick me baby one more time,” but you want one, right? During the first trimester, you’ll be able to wear most of your non-pregnancy clothes, but after that, you’ll need more to wear than just a great pair of maternity leggings.
Whether it’s bold prints or iconic pregnancy overalls, pregnancy can be a fun time to fill your wardrobe with unexpected fashion choices you’ve always wanted to try out. If you’re considering having more kids, investing in a stylish pregnancy wardrobe makes even more sense. You’ll spend literal years wearing them.

What you’ll be wearing after baby
People rarely talk about what your body looks like in the first few months postpartum, but by now, you likely know that your body will be in the recovery stage. It’s important to be gentle with yourself as your body adjusts your baby being out in the world rather than kicking you from the inside.
Most moms spend the first few months postpartum wearing their maternity clothes because maternity clothes are flexible size-wise and extremely comfortable. Some of your maternity clothes might even be cute enough to sneak into your non-pregnancy wardrobe for years to come. We won’t tell!
