I bought the black roll top jersey maternity trousers from blooming marvellous for work any they are soooooo comfortable. Theyve grown with me, they feel like pyjamas and they look smart enough for my work ( i run a pub). They were ??29.99 but i literally wear em and wash em and theyre still black! They come in brown too - wish theyd do them in loads of other colours too. I can also recommend New look maternity range - ive got some really nice tops there, in fact i got 2 in the sale yesterday for ??3 qnd ??5-bargain

1. Grey yoga type pants from Next's maternity range. They are just sooooooo comfortable and soft and I just love them!!
2. Isabella Oliver's wrap dress. I bought it in crimson red, and I love it. Really easy to wear, and quite smart, so suitable for work or an evening out. They do it in all the colours, but their stuff isn't that cheap, so I've had to make do with just the one! If I was to have another, I'd buy it in brown too.

I have started using Susan Molyneux 'Monu' tinted moisturiser. Every day I wear it someone comments how good I look ( and on the flip side how tired I look when I don't wear it!!!!)

Hi - I love this thread - have just ordered the yoga trousers from Next!
For me its anything from Seraphine (www.seraphine.com) everything fits really comfortably and I think it washes really well. I also really like Mama Mio Tummy Rub and Calvin Klein perfectly fit non wired push up bras.

Am really interested in all the extra stuff you guys have bought while pregnant - its quite exciting!
I just went through my pregnancy with the natural look (tired all the time lol) - i bought a couple of tops from Next and i only had one pair of maternity jeans (they were not too comfy tho) so i wont reccomend them!
i missed out because my bump wasn't too big (i wanted a huge bump) and i got off with wearing my own clothes, the only thing i needed was new bras!

H and M do some good casual wear, to dress it up just accesorise!! i'm now 37+3 and bump is just to big to be dressed unless it comes in circus big top stylee!!! up to now i've lived in H and M mama and next maternity jeans also try ASDA, i managed to get 3 dresses for 3 quid each in the sale - they weren't maternity but i just got the dresses a few sizes bigger, plus who cares if you only wear them once for 3 quid i couldnt moan!!!

hi everyone, new here but desperate for advice! My son is 1 month old on Tuesday and has been bottle feeding for the past 2 weeks. He has had problems since. He is extremely irritable, I’m sure my Son doesn’t have anytime while awake not crying, he cries ALL the time and I try EVERYTHING with no success. I have been to the hospital and doctors and they are so very unhelpful, they just tell me he has colic and basically I have to deal with it. I am almost certain, and the hospital also said, he has reflux (silent) as he rarely spits up but it is getting far worse and he is becoming more and more irritable, coughing after feeds and in between and starting to refuse feeds, scream, want them, take them and scream again. He has had Carobel from the hospital as they didn’t want to give Gaviscon due to chance of constipation, but it did absolutely nothing for him. He is now simply on infacol but has trouble pooing, which causes him distress, but is very runny. I guess i am I am desperately looking for advice on what to do, as it is increasingly hard with a baby that cries all day and won’t sleep or settle due to milk coming back up. I feel like I’m missing something and not giving him what he needs? HE IS SUCH A HUNGRY BABY! I feed him, change his nappy, cuddle him, sing to him, wind him, put him in swinger, walk round house, car - I am lost! Health visitor has done a referral to dietician however who knows how long this will take! Dad is lactose intolerant. Also, how much does your baby eat, or did eat at 1 month? Mine wants food every 1.5/2 hours! Please help!
