Rule Breaker

I fear I have a confession to make. I broke one of my cardinal rules of pregnancy: I bought a maternity swimsuit. Normally, I have a no-swimsuit policy for the entire nine months. Because even if I'm comfortable with my super-sized body, it doesn't mean other people need to be comfortable with it. But this year, I'm afraid swimming lessons for H are a must...and I doubt he'll get in without me.

Furthering my decision are several beach-themed trips we've planned. To minimize my rule-breaking blunder, I chose plain black (slimming, I hope) and I got a cute sun dress/cover up that will be worn at all times when not in the water. And let me reassure you that I don't plan on spending much time in the water. Unfortunately, pregnant girls in this family are banned from jet skiing all summer. So that's my confession for the week...and no pictures with this one. :)

i wouldn't think twice about seeing a pregnant woman in a bathing suit (i also think pregnant woman are beautiful). flaunt your stuff and have fun!

I had the same rule and broke it as well. It's hard to be pregnant in the summer (especially in south Texas). You can pull it off. And the being the water just feels so much better.

I think being pregnant is the best time to be in a bathing suit... first of all, being in the water makes you feel sooo much better (think weightless) and it's like the only time in your whole life that you don't have to worry about sucking in the stomach! Most times having a belly is not so cute... pregnant belly, though, very cute.

Okay, missy. I've seen pics of you on facebook and you are so tiny to begin with, there's no way you could ever be enormous! but having never been pregnant myself, i can only imagine how it must feel to be carrying a whole other person...but honestly, i think pregnant ladies in swimsuits are so darn cute! (though there is this one photo of my mom from back in the day, wearing a striped swimsuit: think easter egg...)
