I’m due at the end of August. Part of me has been relieved that I can just survive the summer months in maxi dresses, maternity skirts and tank tops, and still feel like I am dressing cute and not feel like I am dressing like this.
My one dilemma when it comes to cute pregnant lady summer attire is bathing suits. I am a very pasty female by choice, staying out of the sun and keeping my skin looking like that of my Irish ancestors, rather than my Italian ones. I am excited that I won’t look like a Louis Vuitton carry-on by the time I am 30, but reflective-white skin is not exactly slimming. That, and I am of the opinion that maternity bathing suits are really freaking ugly. Really, tankinis and one-pieces, often with skirty or frilly butts are all modern science can come up with for an expectant mother on vacation?
So then I had what I felt was a super bold thought and my mind was telling me maaaaybe I can still wear a bikini? And just flaunt my ability to create life all over the beach and be confident and cool and make everyone want to be pregnant. My mind thinks I will look like this.
But that is just my pregnancy mind. In real life, I think my mind is more rational and has a better grasp on how much I look like Nicole Richie at any given moment. My real life mind would probably tell me that this is the more accurate representation of Pregnant Sara in a Bikini at 7-9 Months Pregnant.
Stay tuned to see who wins.
