The best advice I received while pregnant…

was the V-NECK pants!

Wow — just told a pregnant fairy here at work about the V-neck pants.  Thanks to my friend Marlene, I could wear all my normal pants and just do the V-neck thing.

Most of you probably know the V-neck thing but for those of you who don’t…

1. Unbutton your pants.

2. Take a standard issue elastic band from your office drawer or a colleague’s if you don’t have any in your drawer.

3. Make a loop through the buttonhole and hook the band over the button. Your zip can stay open — obviously with a longish top over it and no one need know that your zip’s open! Except maybe the paramedics who will have to examine you should anything happen to you. LOL! And keep a nice stash of elastic bands for when the tummy has a growth spurt – they tend to pop every now and then.

What’s been your best advice?

    Keep your feet elevated! In other words, after a long day at work, lie down with your feet up :DWorks nicley with your first, not so practical with subsequent pregnancies when there’s a demanding little one running around!

    It was really handy with my work wardobe. Meant I could wear all my favourite ensembles – just added a few long tops.

    lol πŸ™‚ i did this too but instead of elastic bands i used hairbands … much less likely to snap (those ones covered in like a toweling kind of material) :-)also did rebeccas elevated feet thing cos my poor little feet went into shock and complained bitterly about the sudden and excessive weight gain! πŸ™‚

    Sleep a lot, read for hours on end, go to the movies. When baby is there then there is hardly time for this.

    Wow – clever Mom. It was just SO handy not to have to try to find maternity wear in my size!
