  • Pregnancy is sexy. My fiance and other fathers I know love/loved their womens bodies while they were pregnant. And besides, as long as you think you look good it dont matter what anybody else says bout you oor thinks bout you :)

  • I got a black one from Target that was reasonably priced and covers a lot. I also throw on a cover over it...problem solved. I have gained a lot this pregnancy so I was self conscious too.

  • I had a two piece that was a tankini (I'm not a skinny girl, no one wants to see me in a bikini!). We went to the Caribbean while I was pregnant, so there was no avoiding a swimsuit. All you can do is get out there and be who you are. No one else is judging you as harshly as you are. You can't do anything about the stretchmarks; they are what they are. So just try to enjoy yourself while you're out there in the nice weather! Good luck! =)
