Tight belly on pants?


I was wondering if anyone was having similar trouble with this. I have a few pairs of pants and some of them are SUPER tight on my belly, particularly at the top of the band (they’re the full belly panel pants from target that like criss cross in the back). The pants fit fine through the legs but at times bending over or even sitting the top of the band feels extra tight. I’m not sure if this is because they’re relatively new still and they’re not broken in enough or if I’m just becoming super fat? I’m only 27+4 so it’s not like I’m even in month 9 and not fitting so I’d expect that maternity pants would anticipate a lot of growth...

And if this is normal does anyone have any helpful remedies? Thanks!
