Bikini season?

Before I got pregnant, I bought myself the cutest bikini for summer. Then, I ballooned to the size of a medium sized humpback whale and was unable to wear it, which was not only disappointing because I was pretty excited about wearing it, but also because it was sweltering outside and I was very much pregnant and sweaty and the fewer clothes I wore, the better my life would have been. So summer is rolling around again and I became determined to rock that bikini. I'm stuck at 130 now though and can't drop these last 10 pounds! So my question is, who is ready to rock their bikinis and who's rowing the same boat I am?

I am torn between wanting to rock a bikini, despite my horrible belly, or cover it up. :/

My belly is bad too. What's the worst for me though is my thighs. I'd brave the belly if it wasn't for my thunder thighs! Haha.

I know how you feel. I have the same problem. Lol. I have this big butt and thighs, so it makes finding something flattering to wear hard.

I'm definitely not rocking a bikini this summer... but I'm ok with it.  Next year I'll be back to my pre pregnancy body though!

Thats where I was last month, and had been a sticking point for me too. Every time I weighed for 2 months the scale read 140. I worked out like crazy and cut back on eating and nothing helped for the longest time. Finally I cut out the soda- huge thing for me- and chocolate and all snacks and junk food- even more huge for me- and got down to 130. Now the scale is stuck again. I had just gotten back down to 120 from 135 the day before I found out I was pregnant.

I am with you. I am at 130 I want to loose another ten pounds but they just won't budge. But I may need to loose a little more as well. But I am ready for a tankini.

Well it seems my weight has kinda stopped going up (haven't been as hungry this late in my pregnancy) I've stopped at about 176 it's been like that the past two to three weeks. But still I'm used to being tinyish :( my at yr of high school I was a size 2-4 in pants and now at 21 I'm feeling gigantic!!
