Modify Your Wardrobe


Fuller breasts and a disappearing waistline might be some of the first signs of pregnancy that you noticed. Most women gain only 4 to 8 pounds in the first trimester — most of it from uterus changes.

Invest in some larger bras and reach for flowy, loose-fitting dresses and tops to hold you over until you need to buy maternity clothes.
