wear it or no? since i get the joy of being pregnant until july or august sometime, lets just face it i'm gonna want to go swimming or the lake or something so what do you do? theres no freakin way i'm going out and buying a "maternity" swimsuit, those are so darn expensive and then what i wear it a few times and it sits in a drawer and rots? i have like a million bikinis, so what to do? would you just wear one you already have if it still fits? i'm pretty proud of the fact that i've maintained my body pretty well, by watching how and what i eat as well as getting proper excersize, which is important to me pregnant or not! so wear one or no?


this is the belly in question!

You look like you have a nice body, so you will look good in a bikini while pregnant.

I wore my bikini top as a shirt for most of my first pregnancy. I think it's just fine.

this is my second child, first was born in october so i wasnt really showing much during the summer months, i got zero stretch marks on my stomach with her, hopefully cocoa butter will work as well with this one! 

Quoting tyrelsmom:

Right now, for sure. Wear the bikini. I wore one with my first. I carried him nice like that and had no stretch marks until the last couple of weeks.
Just be honest with yourself. Sometimes a pregnant woman in a bikini looks absolutely gross. And sometimes they look great. Another option is wearing a long tank over your bikini. I did that with my others, until I finally bought a maternity suit with my third. Cute, and on sale. Couldn't resist.

It's my FAVORITE!!! I love it so much! I've seen the movie thousands of times, and even a few plays. I cry every time!
