TBH I wouldn't - I lived in those but threw them all out when I got my BFP - no point in quashing babs in - I would imagine that you wouldn't be very comfortable in them anymore anyways

Thanks all, that looks interesting madgie, has any one tried this or the belly belt(couldnt remember) ? :thnk

I'm definitely investing in the belly belt anyway. Going to order it today. It means I can get a bit longer out of my own pants, plus I won't have to go around with my button open in fear of my pants falling down :-8 :o0

[quote="Fur":dot4tdpg]Thanks Madgie, how exactly does the belt work? :-8[/quote:dot4tdpg] You attach it to the buttons in your own pants...so basically you leave your pants open and this is like an extension to it. They're meant to be a godsend Here's a pic of one from www.handybaby.com [img:dot4tdpg]http://www.handybaby.com/images/categories/gro_group/belly_belt.jpg[/img:dot4tdpg] The unique maternity wear solution for before and after the birth Want more choice in your maternity wardrobe and don’t want to rush out to buy huge maternity clothes the moment you can't button your jeans?
