Becoming a Mum is hard in so many ways, but one of the aspects I found the hardest was adjusting to my post bump shape.  During my first pregnancy I gained a lot of weight, and went from a size 10 to a 14 and everything in my wardrobe was far too small.  I remember buying a hideous green skirt for O’s first Christmas because it was a size 12.  I refused to believe I was a 14 and bought it simply because it was a 12 (and had a much needed elasticated waist!)
