    Does anyone know if those rubber sweat bands/belts that go around your midsection are safe to use during your first trimester? I've used them in the past (not pregnant) and was wondering if it would be a good idea to use them now before I get a "pooch" just to keep my stomach flatter for longer and to possibly get back in shape sooner after baby. My main concern is whether or not they would be safe? It makes your belly sweat more becasue it is made out of rubber.


    Thanks in advance.

    I can't say for sure but I wouldn't take the risk. You don't want your little bean getting squished. :)

    I wouldn't use one. And surley it can't be comfortable?!? I have to roll down my tights so they sit under my belly cos even that thin fabric is uncomfortable pressing on my belly.
