Has anyone ever used this??

http://www.cheekymonkey.ca/BellyBelt.htm

I was wondering how hard it would be to make one as I don't want to spend that much money if the pregancy sticks.

Anyone have any opionions on them?

Thanks,

I would love to make my own. It doesn't seem too hard does it? Some elastic and buttons. nice comfy fabric too!

Hmm, interesting! I don't know how hard they would be to make... but I do know that when I was PG and working, I just used a ponytail holder. Our uniform shirts were plenty long enough to cover that whole area of my pants, so I didn't worry about people catching a peek at my undies. (Though, that method doesn't give you near as much space as this thing.) If you are handy with a sewing machine though, I'd go for it! It doesn't look all that hard to make.

Ehhhhh... so-so! If you stay tiny enough to wear your regular jeans than they're ok. I would say they're ok for the late 1st-early 2nd trimester, but after that I couldn't even fit into my regular pants so it didn't work for me.
