I really don't like any pressure on my tummy and my pants still fit but I'm showing a little bit. Recommendations?
Both reasons, really. I'm still wearing my regular jeans, but unbuttoned and half unzipped with the bella band over it. Basically, it makes my jeans feel like they have an elastic waistband, almost like I'm wearing sweats or pyjama pants, which are what I live in at home. I'm fine standing up, but I didn't realize how much pressure my jeans were putting on my belly when I sat down or bent over - it is 100 times more comfortable to sit (at work, driving, etc) without the jeans digging into my belly.
If you still feel fine in your jeans, just wait a few more weeks. You'll know when you need more room! I swear, I've been wearing this thing all weekend, and I can't even imagine buttoning my jeans again.
, LAME RULE about the no children. I really wonder sometimes what they expect people to do! GRR!
