More Than Meets The Eye.

During last December's Give All The Things!, Donna at Tallygear offered to send me a free Tummietote belt (and, later, her case for the Dexcom G4 receiver). This happened before I knew I was pregnant, so the size I ordered wasn't intended to fit a baby bump.

But thankfully, this thing is stretchy as hell and lets me transform from "normal-looking pregnant lady" into "stealthy multiple-device-wearing pregnant lady" quite nicely.

And not only is the stealthy part cool, but it also solves the "these pants have no pockets and I have to lug all of this crap around" problem.

The middle pouch (there are 3, and they velcro shut thoroughly, which I'm sure is helpful if you're one of those super active people) even has a window, which is super convenient for quick checks of a CGM graph or IOB on an insulin pump. It lays surprisingly flat, and with the mega-long maternity shirts (what is that, anyway?), it's not even a big deal.

Speaking of convenience, I need to invest is some shoes that don't require anything but sliding my feet into them, because reaching my feet to tie up sneakers is already getting kind of awkward.


  1. By the end, your "super long maternity shirts" will not be so long anymore!

    Congrats and best of luck to you and your little one. I just had my first in February. Enjoy being pregnant! It's a lot of work, but so worth it in the end.

  2. Yea, those shirts shrink as your belly expands. You'll be grateful later.

  3. I just realized that I need to buy Maternity shirts. I am plus sized with a SUPER long torso and really short legs meaning I am constantly left with wearing long camis under my shirts and sweaters to make sure I am not giving plumber butt or letting my tummy show. You're such an inspiration! haha

    I think that I might also order one of those tummy toes too. Hmmmm.

  4. I bought New Balance slide on tennis shoe clogs during each pregnancy. The best!

    Lucky for you, it's almost sandal weather.

    1. I started to think that too, and then we got 7" of new snow last night. :(

  5. It's time for Nike to come out with the shoes from Back to the Future 2. I mean come on right?

  6. My first thought, pretty soon we won't be able to see your feet when you take a photo of your fancy tummietote belt.
    Keep enjoying!

  7. Best shoes I've found for slipping on and off while giving my feet good support are Danksos. They are pricey but totally worth it. I still wear mine on a regular basis! Good luck! (And hope you see the sun in April. That's about the time I remember Omaha and Lincoln seeing it!)
