Did you see that button invention on the Today show for pregnant women?

You just add it to your regular jeans and it extends the waste so you don't have to buy the maternity ones...I've been looking for it online and can't find it, does anyone know the name of it?

  • I did the rubber band thing, only I used a hair tie so it didn't snap against my skin! Works like a charm.

  • I did the hair tie thing as well, but I plan on trying a belly band next time...the hair tie left weird lumps under my shirts!
