I am wearing a girdle for the first time since child #2. It is not pretty. The mass that used to constitute my ab muscles is now squished to the top of a size-that-fit-prior-to-growing-the-largest-belly-known-to-pregnancy “slimming” girdle.

This means one of two things is bound to occur at the office party we are attending tonight for Mr. Flinger’s work: a) someone will ask when I’m due and b) I will get very crampy gas about the time his boss makes his way over to our table and let a teeny tiny SBD slip out. And blame his boss for it.

Remember what happened on our last date? I’m sure this will top it. Let’s take bets, shall we? Who’s in?


  1. Oh of course. Please, I’ve been known to wear the Spanx with mah jeans, cuz nothing is where I left it! Hopefully this date was less gas and headlighty!

  2. LMAO!  I soooo relate. Just bought a new outfit to wear to my husband’s holiday work party. I’m looking into spanx to go with it!

  3. Those girdles would be so awesome if they also returned the girls back to where they belong.  Instead, they just hang over the top.  Looks odd without a belly there for them to rest on.  LOL

    Hope you had a good time.

  4. I need spanx. People, I NEED THEM. Is it wrong to put that on my christmas list? “Firm up in two minutes: SPANX”

    Seriously. I’m off to find them on Amazon.

  5. I have considered the same. Hey, just so you know I can fit into my pre-pregnancy jeans now. WOOOhhoo… of course, they are “somewhat” tight. oh, and my tummy, well!! that is what I was considering the girdle for… thankfully it has been cooler out so my old sweatshirt covered that… not very slimming, but hey—it covered.

    and yeah, mom on coffee made me laugh in commaraderieship (ok, so i forgot how to spell).

  6. Okay: I admit to being on the skinnier side, so I can report that the post-pregan(cies) tummy is universal.  I have no breasts, no thighs or hips but I have toddler-like tummy.  So unfair.  Not even sit-ups make the darn thing go away.  When my four year old asked why “you fat dere” I said “It’s because you and your brother and sister used to live there!”
