By week 10, you may start to notice that regular clothes are becoming more uncomfortable, especially around your waist. This is due to the fact that your uterus is growing -- it's almost the size of a grapefruit -- and you're probably starting to gain a couple of pounds. However, most women haven't gained enough weight at this point to warrant maternity clothes. If you find yourself feeling uncomfortable, you may want to wear pants or skirts with elastic waist bands. You may also want to buy a new supportive bra to help ease any soreness caused by your growing breasts. If you feel ready for maternity clothes, feel free to buy them since you'll need them in the coming weeks even if you don't need them right now.
