The Trick!

I had forgotten about this one because I didn't use it with DD. I can't seem to find my Bella Band and my shorts don't fit. I remembered someone said to take a hair tie or rubber band and put through the loop and then loop around the button. Worked like a charm!

Kristy, that is my go to pants wearing trick. Is it bad I've hada stash of maternity cloths just waiting to be worn for almost 5 months now? How soon do you think you'll go to the mat pants? I'm heading to eBay to look for a BellaBand now. Smile

Target carries a pretty nice belly band thing. I bought mine when I was pregnant with DD Smile

Not bad at all - I was excited to root through my maternity bin yesterady and pull out the things that will work.

I'm not sure when I'll go to mat pants. Since it will be warm, I may just wear flowy non-maternity dresses that I have. I do have some mat shorts that I tried on last night and they are SOOO comfy. I just feel like it's crazy to be putting maternity stuff on .... I'm 6 WEEKS! This is crazy!

So I was looking at the Bella Bands and am not sure.... what size to get? I'm right in the middle, so my luck it will be too tight or too loose. :/
Kier, how much are the ones at Target? I might just have to go shopping out there b/c I have a gift card for that store burning a hole in my pocket. Heh heh.

I was just explaining how to do this to a friend who's 10 weeks and is feeling uncomfortable. Works like a charm Smile Still, I would like to get a belly band at some point just for the extra options.

I ordered my Bella Bands last week and got them yesterday. Am wearing one today already. It's crazy but when I put it on and popped the button on my jeans, I swear I let out a huge sigh of relief... Luckily I am a SAHM and I live in yoga pants when I am at home.

I think I would recommend going up a size. They work loose too, besides at the end when even your maternity pants are too small you will enjoy the extra stretch! The ones at Target are not as nice as the ones online. The material is thinner.

I bought mine a couple of years ago. I believe it was somewhere between $10 and $20 or so.... I wouldnt have bought it if it was much more.

I actually really like mine. I also am one to get way over heated easily, so the thinner material is right up my ally.
