Bump Watch 2011

We are expecting our second baby in September and I am just starting to show at 24 weeks(I shouldn't complain, I can still fit into my blue jeans), I thought finally I could share some bump photo's(not that you can even see any roundness in this picture, it's there, I promise!  Next time I'll make it a side view).  Everything has been going great and we are very excited.  
If you look below Brady's dirty pant leg you will see a white and gray stripe layer under my t-shirt, that's my belly band!  I ordered it from a shop on Etsy called Run System 63 and it is the best thing ever!!!  One of my biggest pet peeves is seeing a pregnant ladys belly unintentionally peeking out from the bottom of her shirt, it makes me crazy, but this totally solves that problem.  It extends the life of your normal clothes so you don't have to rush out and spend hundreds of dollars on expensive maternity ones.  I bought an extra long belly band(can be worn as a tube top too) and I'm glad I did, I wear it folded in half and I feel comfy and supported.  When you get to that point where you just can't button your jeans up any more, don't, just put a belly band on!  I have pants and shorts in my closet that I haven't been able to wear for years because they are too small, well guess what?  I can wear them all now(so long as my butt doesn't get any bigger, lol) because I don't have to button them up.  I plan on wearing my band even after the baby comes, it's a pregnant lady must have.  I'm in love my belly band and I don't care who knows it!
