One of Those Things...

My new tummy band (mine by Bella Band). I love it! I've been pregnant five times before this and this is the first time I've had a contraption like this. Motherhood Maternity makes one too.
SO comfortable.
Extends the life of pre-pregnancy pants and jeans.
Extends shirts to cover that "peeking out" part of your belly in the last trimester.
Did I mention I love it!

Does the band stay in place or does it roll? I haven't seen one before but love the idea.

I loved mine too, wished I had em for the first 3! Yay for holding up those pants, that's ALWAYS a good thing!
Love you.

It's pretty wide, so it seems I can fold it over at present. I haven't worn it as the picture shows yet, but I figure I will later in pregnancy.

Today i am wearing my jeans unbuttoned and this thing is keeping my pants comfortable and hiding the open fly pretty well.

I like it:-) I bought mine at Target for 16 or 17 dollars, and might be willing to get another. I don't think there will be a need to wash it often (Jenny?) and I'm pretty happy with the black, so maybe I don't care about having another color. (would a larger size be worth getting? Who has tried them and knows?)

Since I am not in the "sisterhood" please explain what these things do. :) All these words and contraptions and I do not get them. And keep on sharing. I love learning! :)

Well I think it is one of those things you can be glad not to use Grace.
One is not thrilled with needing a piece of stretchy fabric to help keeps ones pants up, but...
one CAN be thankful that an "expectant mother" glow is not limited to those of us with big bellies! ;-P
Bloom on!

This looks like a good idea, I'll have to try it someday ;)

princessmama said...

BTW, do you have email?? And I have a number on my phone, the one you last called me from, but don't know if that is where to reach you? You can leave info on a comment on my blog--i won't publish it ;-)

Belly bands are the best! I loved mine for the first & second trimester (though it did roll down once and left my unbuttoned pants exposed in public!). By the way, it was so fun to see the adorable pictures of you guys and the Fedorko clan. :)
