To give us a break from the daily grind...
Some creatively painted pregnant bellies, from Parents.com:

Whoa! The one who drew Earth on her belly actually made for a very powerful image about life, Earth, and new hope. I mean, I don't know if she intended that or if she was just expressing her creative side, but it was cool. :)
They're all amazing!Posted by: Vannah at July 6, 2009 12:05 PM

Near the end of the pregancy, when even the 'innie' becomes an 'outie', the protruding navel gives the abdomen an torpedoesque appearance.
This is something that only guys who watched WWII movies as a boy would 'get'.
The other image that comes to mind is that of a young child inflating a ballon by mouth and the uneasy feeling you get cause you just know it's going to burst with the next breath.
Q: What is a navel [naval] destroyer?
A: A hulahoop with a nail in it!

Sorry. "Feaky" should be "freaky".Posted by: carder at July 6, 2009 11:03 PM
Don't even think it guys... I'm sooooo not painting my belly!Posted by: Elisabeth at July 7, 2009 1:07 AM
I had a friend who was pregnant around Halloween and worked at an office that had a contest.
She put a little cardbord "oven" around her belly and had a bun inside of it. She came in second.Posted by: Lauren at July 7, 2009 12:55 PM
I went to a Halloween party last year at which a woman had that, except inside the "oven" was a sonogram of their kid. The young husband wore an apron that said, "BUN MAKER."Posted by: bmmg39 at July 9, 2009 1:26 PM
