"I bought these super comfortable maternity leggings and wore them the next day. I went to the library, my OB-GYN and grocery shopping.

"I was at a funeral for a priest and a friend motioned to me to pull my top up a bit while I was standing with about 20 priests milling about. What can I say, my girls are loud and proud and the top had slipped down a little."

"I went into the restroom and while I was sitting there I noticed that I could see the floor through my maternity dress pants. The seam had ripped right open about ten inches. I have no idea how long it had been like that, but it was very visible from the back, especially my pink underwear."

"I can't keep these girls in! My dad even made a comment recently. Oops."

"I was packing up the pants that were too small for me because I had finally found some maternity pants. The pre-pregnancy pants I was packing up had a huge hole in the back. Not sure when it happened but I am so glad I didn't know about it when it did."
