  • I slept with on my side wiht a pillow between my knees, only comfortable position for me, but all women are different. Nobody knows how big your belly will get, it depends. And wear a bathing suit that is comfortable.

  • all we can do is give you our opinions and experiences.........ultimately, you need to make decisions however listen to suggestions, but come to your own conclusions, your pregnancy will not be the same as others, a few similiarities but thats alll...............my best advice is trust your gut at all times.

  • Find a position that will work for you and is comfortable, enjoy the changes that you are going through and it will get as big as it is supposed to, where what you feel comfortable in.

  • On your side. 20-30 pounds but thats with execise and eating right. If you feel comfortable in a two or full suit, go for it and show your baby bump off.

  • If you maintain a healthy weight gain you shouldn't get too big. My son was 9lbs 7oz but thats because his daddy is 6ft 5in. It really depends on diet and genes as to how big you get. I have always been more comfortable in a tankini. They are great when preggo because you can buy 2 different sizes for the right fit. Left side is best to sleep on but I am much more comfortable on my right. I sleep with the "comma" boppy pillow my polar bear (yes you can laugh at that) and two pillows under my head because of all day morning sickness. I'm now 17 weeks with #2. Good luck and feel free to message me if you have more questions, I can try and help. I have had many problems with both pregnancies. I might be able to help :D
