Belly

Usually by the end of the day my belly sticks out a lot more than it does at the beginning. I pretty much attribute that to the food I've eaten throughout the day and with my growing womb my insides are being mushed around. I'll go to bed and when I wake up my belly is back to regular size... except this morning. I now have an itty bitty bump. This has inspired me to make my first maternity purchase. (Actually, because of our Amazon.com rewards from our credit card, it cost me nothing!) I just ordered two of these:

They're belly bands! They'll allow me to keep wearing my regular pants and skirts unbuttoned and/or unzipped while hiding the unbuttoned/unzipped part. Also, they will allow me to wear maternity pants that will currently be too big. The bands are stretchy and will hold my pants up! Plus, I'll still be able to wear my regular shirts (which are looking shorter and shorter) and it'll just look like I have a t-shirt layered underneath. As Keli's grandma would say, whoever dreamed that up had a good dream, they did!

Now, don't get too excited about the itty bitty baby bump; if you didn't know it was there, you probably wouldn't notice it. But I guess now that I've put this on my blog, people will stop making eye contact with me and just check out the belly.

once people know you're expecting. . . they start 'seeing the bump!' even if it's not really there yet.

i hope those bands prove to be good investments. they do seem quite handy. let me know how you like them. perhaps i should look into getting one of them as well.
