You'll likely be in maternity stuff for atleast a few days post delivery because it takes a moment for your stomach to initially shrink from its pregnant state. After that I was in my pre pregnancy clothes, but chose my more generous fitting tops for a while until I felt more comfortable in tighter stuff ( which for me was about a month or so) Hope that helps x
Depends how big your bump is at the end I guess. I had a tiny tiny bump and left the delivery suite with a completely flat stomach. Actually thinner than pre-pregnancy, goodness knows how!! While I COULD have gone back into my normal clothes, I chose baggier tops and elasticated waistbands like pj pants. I had a natural delivery so didn't have a csection scar to worry about. I was just more comfortable not being restricted while carrying out day to day life with newborn twins and a toddler
I still looked pregnant for ages (4-8 weeks). I didn't have lots of excess weight (put on just under 3 stone and carried 1 stone of baby!). Think it was just lots of swelling from caesarean. Tummy still a funny shape due to over stretched tummy muscles. Good luck! Beckyboo XXX
