Dressing your pregnant body isn't the easiest job, it's safe to say, but when you're on the petite side (that's under 5 ft 4 in, by the way), it's even harder. 

We don't need to tell you that a pair of jeans is a wardrobe staple and this doesn't just change just because you're having a baby. You're going to be pregnant for a good few months so it's worth investing in a decent pair, even if you wouldn't usually spend much on jeans. You want a pair that are good quality and will last, especially because then you can keep them for any future babies you may go on to have or even pass them along to a friend who is expecting. 

Don't forget, although they might not say petite in the product title, jeans usually come in short, regular and long. In this case, it's short you're after if you're a petite mama. 

If you don't know where to start, take a look at our petite maternity jeans picks below...

Made from premium cotton with a dash of stretch for extra comfort, these maternity jeans are a typical skinny shape but with a soft fabric layer to support your growing bump.

Part of reality star Dani Dyer's maternity collection, these pale blue over the bump skinny jeans are the perfect comfy fit jeans for an everyday outfit no matter what the occasion. They'll be especially great for the summer with a strappy top.

If you prefer black jeans, these casual black jeans will look great during the day with a t-shirt and trainers or if you're heading out in the evening, throw on a nice top, some jewellery and a leather jacket.

M&S maternity Ivy jeans are made from a cotton and modal blend to give a soft and luxury feel. With added stretch for a super comfy fit, they're high waisted to fit perfectly around your bump, with an ankle grazer cut and skinny fit for a stylish, modern look. 

These dark wash super stretchy jeans are the perfect length to wear with boots and can be worn casually or dressed up. They have a seamless stretch maternity panel that grows with you throughout your pregnancy so you'll be comfy from day one.

No jean styles are off the table just because you're pregnant as these distressed black jeans from Topshop prove. Helpfully, Topshop jeans come in waist and leg length sizes so you can really make sure they'll suit your petite frame. They pull up over your bump but don't offer extra support so bear this in mind.

Another pair from Dani Dyer's collection with In The Style, we couldn't resist these casual over the bump jeans with turn ups at the bottom for a relaxed feel.

Who says you can't wear ripped jeans when pregnant? Not us! These GAP jeans come in short, regular and long to ensure the perfect fit for you and your bump. Made from 80 per cent cotton so they're super soft, the full panel stretches over your belly for maximum support.
