Measuring a Pregnant Belly

Lil Tip: Marking Your Pregnancy

Some women take pictures of their burgeoning bellies during pregnancy while others cast their tummies for remembrance. One way to keep track of your belly from month to month is to tie a string or ribbon around your stomach at the same point every month.

To do this, take some ribbon and tie it around your belly. Mark it, tie a knot or bow, hang it on a hook and watch the loop grow to its maximum capacity. To add some flair to the activity, use different color ribbons every month. After baby arrives, lie out the circles and frame them for the nursery's first masterpiece.

Cute! I dont know why anyone would want a cast of their tummy, ew. But thats just my opinion. I think the ribbon thing is way cuter.

I love this idea! It's so much less tacky than taking pictures of exposed bellies (not that pregnant bellies aren't beautiful, but you should see some of the photos these mom's were showing everyone!).
