Tummy Ball

I'm wearing jeans with the huge belly panel today. Thanks to the miracles of modern engineering, I actually have other jeans that stretch enough that they can zip up and have no panel at all. They are in the wash though, so I have to wear the ones that I have left over from previous pregnancies. I guess I avoid the belly panel jeans, when possible, because when my daughter saw me putting them on today she pointed and said, "What's that?" I told her it was my tummy and she laughed and said, "Mommy tummy ball." Throughout the day she has periodically come up, pulled up my shirt and giggled and patted my "tummy ball." I already knew pregnancy and parenting weren't really for the vain or faint of heart, but this feels like a new low.


Sounds like when Boy noticed Mommy was pregnant with Tiny Terror, and he said she had on 'eternity clothes.' Feels like that, sometimes.

Whew, $54 for tummy ball pants - being pregnant sure ain't cheap! I hope you will be blessed in the future when your daughter has to wear tummy ball pants, then you can go up to her, pull up her shirt and pat HER belly whilst giggling.

[That will probably not be the only item for mother's revenge years from now, but it's not too early to start making a list.]

Mine jeans aren't from the Gap, I just thought they gave a good look at all the options one has for "eternity" jeans these days. The best thing to do is have friends the same size as you are that have already been pregnant. I have a nicer wardrobe this time around, because a friend lent all her clothes to me.
