Fame or Shame Game #12: Belly Measuring Tape Keepsake
Moms have their various little pregnancy keepsakes… belly casts, belly photos, framed ultrasound prints, daily journals, bronzed Ben & Jerry’s carton tops, and, uh, maybe that’s it.
But wait, there’s more! Behold The Mommy Measure…
The Mommy Measure is a growth chart for your pregnant belly. The 72-inch vinyl tape has two scales — for tracking your circumference and your fundal height (the distance between the top of the pubic bone and top of the uterus).
The tape is wide enough for you to briefly write down milestones…
“20 WEEKS: Learned you have a penis!
25 WEEKS: Finally crushed Dad’s hopes of naming you Flynn.
30 WEEKS: Puked in the car again today.”
You know, record all of those treasured moments you want to share with your child years from now.
Think of it as a journal for moms who aren’t motivated enough to maintain a journal.
The belt comes in blue, pink or green (for frog people) and retails for $15.
Please tell us dear Thinga-readers, is this inventor destined for fame or shame… and why? Begin your comment with “Fame because…” or “Shame because…”
