Being pregnant is a wonderful and almost magical time for many women. There are times that we would love to block out of our memory – like the times we were spent over the toilet throwing up every meal. I was one of the lucky few who did not have to experience this. Everything about us changes during this time. We hate foods that we used to love and we love foods that used to make us sick. We even mix certain foods that should never be seen together. Like pickles and chocolate!
Once that precious little package arrives we are free to become ourselves again and to eat and drink the things that we love. Only an hour after I had given birth to my precious baby girl my husband asked me what I wanted to eat and I told him to get me some cheesy pizza and a Mocha Frappe! I craved my coffee and energy drinks and for nine months I was unable to drink them. But immediately after she was out and safe I took to it again with no problem.
Another thing that I was trying to get back to normal was the size of my stomach. Before I had gotten pregnant I was in a size 6 – but after I was in a size 12. No woman should ever feel bad about herself for putting on weight while she is pregnant. This is safe for you and the baby and you never want to do anything to harm them. But afterwards it’s time to get rid of it and fast.
Unfortunately this can be hard for women who are breastfeeding. This is because we are needed to stay on a specific diet and have to eat enough and drink enough to produce what the baby needs. That is why someone came up with the miraculous Belly Bandit!
The Belly Bandit is literally an abdominal compression that wraps around your mid-section. This is perfect for helping you to shrink back to your normal size faster and even helps your uterus to shrink back at a decent pace. It also helps to reduce the amount of bloating and swelling that can occur in some women. It comes in a variety of colors and is only $39.95. This is something that every mom needs to register for her baby shower.
