Just a quick pic showing that--yay!--clothing adjusted for maternity wearing continues to work. The gestational stays allow the gowns and jackets I already owned to fit in the back and top of the bodice, and a generous stomacher covers the expanding portion of me. You can see as well that the petticoats continue to hike upwards.
And what in the world am I holding? A sponge-ram, for our cannon (sponge for cleaning out the bore at the top, ramrod for charging the piece at the bottom, like an oversized multitool). The artillery piece was being moved and I was pitching in by holding onto some gear. Yes, I'm being a good girl and not moving cannons while pregnant!
