Well, I was almost 38 weeks pregnant and came up with the idea after everyone always telling me – you just have a basketball in there… that’s it, just a basketball belly. So it was real easy to come up with this one. Plus, I really didn’t want to do the obvious same ‘ol pregnant costumes.

So I went to a few thrift stores and snagged some great finds – the shoes were an unbelievable find: they are actually wrestling shoes found at a Goodwill for just a few bucks AND they are size 9 – perfect and just meant for me!

My husband measured my belly and cut a hole in the jersey, my husband painted my belly (very well, I might add) and BAM! Pregnant lady incognito as Mrs Basketball Player! I went into labor the next day!
