Well, bust my buttons!

I just want to make a public announcement that my belly bands are on the way and I cannot friggin' wait! For those who don't know what a belly band is - it's a piece of stretchy fabric a woman wears over her waist line and top of her unbuttoned pants, instead of wearing maternity pants. I've lost 3 of the 11 lbs. I've gained since Christmas.  Funny thing about wearing sweat pants and yoga pants during the day, most days, is that when I went to put on a pair of jeans, today, I could not zip them.  Bummer!  I instantly clobbered myself, mentally, "Beth!  You can't go backwards!"  Next thought, "Oh ya...I got a baby in there."  I will say, that with Jacob and Levi's pregnancies - my ass actually got smaller.  NOT this time around.  I'm waiting for when my mother in law sees me, cuz some pleasant woman told her when she was expecting hubby's sister, that since her backside was so big, it was a girl.  :-O  My MIL would not say it that way to me, but it will be interesting to get her opinion on my matter.  ;) Weird thing with me and pregnancy...I take all those things as a compliment.  I read posts and blogs and etiquette on the pregnancy websites and women get so upset about that stuff.  I don't know why those things have never bugged me.  When my sister was pregnant with my first nephew, an old woman said something about her butt getting so big cuz she was carrying that baby in her backside.  Ahhhh...the comfort of women whom have all been here before us.  ;) 
Anyway, I needed to go grocery shopping today.  It was not fun with my britches falling down and being afraid every time I bent over the cart if I had "coin slot" showing or not.  All I knew is I couldn't zip them...and it was a risk of being inappropriate whether I wore my yoga pants or if I was showing coin slot. After I was at walmart and saw a chick in her early 20s with too tight of a shirt, a muffin-top, and showing her own coin slot because of low ride jeans....I was at ease.  At least I have a reason!  LOL - that's my rationale anyway.  ;)
