Yes! Hopefully this will make my work pants usable for at least a few more months! After lunch bloat was causing problems!

I never used this trick until my 4th. Last time around, I bought 2 belly bands, and they were life savers!! I don't want to buy anymore maternity clothes.

due to previous c-section scars, I cant wear anything low cut, so I have to wear the tube top maternity jeans. I wish I could fit a pair of jeans under my belly!

I used hair ties for the first little bit with my son, but this time my pants are rubbing on the little bit of belly I do have and it hurts!! So its mostly yoga pants for me, and I'll be switching to maternity clothes as soon as I can.
