I was 8 months pregnant with my second child when one day I decided to do some sewing. I always prepare my fabrics by washing them and by ironing them out before using them. At this point in my project I was ironing the fabric on high heat and steam when my iron decided to glide out of control and the edge of it hit my belly  Cry It was so painful! My belly was a bit exposed because I was home and it was hot and so i was wearing low cut shorts and a short tank.I was left with a 2 inch burn scar that to this day takes center of attention just above my bellybutton. This was almost 3 years ago and it is still there to remind me to be careful around an iron  Grin

those pregnant bellies sure can get in the way can't they??? i have had three babies and i was always knocking that big ole belly of mine into something Smiley sorry to hear that you still have a scar. but it's a story you can tell your child in the future. pregnant or not, i have problems staying away from iron burns. just clumsy i guess.

Reminds me of a story my grandmother told me.  When my great-grandma was pregnant with her, she was sewing one day and heard one of her older children scream outside.  She jumped up and dropped her sewing scissors, stabbing herself in the foot. 

When my grandma was born, she had a hole through one ear, exactly as if it had been pierced.  Great-grandma was forever convinced that this was the result of stabbing herself in the foot with scissors while pregnant.   Shocked

aah! Almost ten years ago I was ironing iron-on letters onto a halloween costume, kneeling on the floor, like a dumb teenager, and the iron slid and hit my thigh. the burn hurt but it didn't seem like it would be such a big thing. However. I can *still* see the scar a little. irons are brutal!!

For some reason I like to iron on the floor? Yeah, I'm weird. Anyway, I wasn't paying attention and I leaned back onto the iron.. That was fun. I can only imagine how much worse it would be if I were pregnant, being more irritable and all that.

That reminds me of the time I tried to iron a skirt while wearing it (because I was in a hurry).  Of course the iron slipped, and I ended up with a 1 inch burn on my hip.

If you can't convince them, confuse them.

I burnt myself with hot pasta water when I was pregnant.  It felt extremely horrible on fresh stretch marks, not that I personally would have any Wink but they took forever to heal.
