#18Weeks and #MaternityFashion Plus Size Maternity Clothes


TOP ROW L-R: Grey Nursing Dress from 9Months / Black Nursing Maxi from 9Months/ Black Midi Dress from 9Months.

MIDDLE ROW: Printed Dress / Baby Blue Top / Rayon Top all from H&M

BOTTOM ROW: Both printed dresses from 9Months and Cropped Pencil Pants from Mothers en Vogue.

I'm a plus size before I got pregnant. I was about UK12 and I wore mainly UK brands. Dorothy Perkins and WAREHOUSE and ASOS are my favourites! Followed by Massimo Dutti for tops and my standard black jeggings that I always buy for the past 3 years in the same size, color and cut is from Uniqlo. 

I realised as of today, I only own 2 pants. One of them is a 2 year old pair from Uniqlo which survived the animal clinic, Korea and hard core Pambassador trips. The jeggings are really resilient and durable. 2 years and extreme wear and it's still the comfiest pair I own. The second pair is from 9Months which WILL fit me when I have a full blown bump!

In conclusion, it's really tough for me to find pants before I was pregnant and it's more difficult now. Hence, I love dresses. I didn't really buy much clothes and if I do, I make sure that the clothes is bigger so, I have room to grow into. Pointless to be buying every 3 months. 

If you're like me, you can forget about buying from blogshops because they NEVER will fit. Here's a list of places where you can get maternity clothes, if you share my plight! 

1) 9Months
2) H&M MAMA
3) Mothers en Vogue
4) ASOS Maternity
5) Topshop Maternity

I don't like the trend of wearing really tight maternity clothes because before I was pregnant, I thought that it looked scary. I love flowy, summer dresses, loose fitting tops with my staple black pants, preferably. 

I'm 4 months plus and seriously, if you want to make the most of your money, buy clothes that will accommodate your belly. It will never stop growing. Unless you have tonnes of money to be buying new clothes every month. 

I haven't even bought bras yet because I'm waiting for my old bras to stop fitting before getting new ones. 

This week is a little down because God only know how I got Tonsillitis. My tonsils are swollen and I've been having gradual fever for the past 3 days. Managed to chase the fever away with Orange + Mango smoothies, water, sleep and massages till I sleep. The next day, my tonsils hurt and I don't even have cough or flu. 

Today, I nearly lost my voice because I have a bad cough. No idea where I got infected. Been at home sleeping, this long holiday and The Hubby is OK. 

Anyways more symptoms as my body keeps changing. 

1) I gained 2kgs. 
2) My breasts are still hurting.
3) Little drops of moisture comes out from my tits. 
4) I tend to release drops of pee when I sneeze/ cough. (NASTY!)
5) I go to the toilet multiple times at night. 
6) Still can't differentiate between my stomach fats and baby bump. 
7) I HAVE THE BEST HUBBY IN THE WORLD!!!!!
