You’re in your bedroom one night and you are curious to see how you would look as a pregnant woman. Ok. You were not curious because you’ve done this before. You just want to torture yourself.
Your husband isn’t around and so you take an article of clothing, perhaps a sweater or a night shirt, and stuff it down your shirt creating a beautiful (fake) baby bump. You stare at yourself in the mirror, just enjoying your pretend pregnancy. You tenderly pat your belly and do the waddle that you have mastered in your private moments. You stare at your (fake) expanding belly for a little too long and when your husband arrives home, you remove the shirt immediately. He doesn’t need to know how weird you’ve gotten although he already knows this.
You would rarely admit this to anyone, but you have also stuffed some other items under your shirt when given the opportunity.
These fake baby bump items also include:
- watermelon and other pieces of fruit
- a balloon
- a pillow
- Mr. Potato Head
- your coat
