Over the weekend, we tried out one of our local public pools for the first time. While splashing with Nic in the kiddie pool, I noticed that there were many pregnant mamas lining the suspiciously warm pool. However, I was the only one in a bikini. The rest were wearing one-pieces, tankinis or swim shirts.
Was I being immodest? Is it verboten, or at least frowned upon, to wear a bikini during pregnancy (especially late preganancy)? If it is, I say, screw it. I’m not about to go out and shell out money for something I don’t want to wear!
I have nothing against a super sleek sexy one-piece. In fact, I wish that my non-pregnant self was longer and leaner so that I could pull one off. But I’m not into the one-piece for the concept of covering my baby bump up. Just because my belly button is inside-out, that doesn’t mean it’s indecent!
I may have a huge belly, but I’m feeling pretty good about the fact that I don’t have any stretch marks (knock on wood) and that my butt still fits into my non-knocked up bikini bottoms. I was a little nervous to bare so much stretched skin, but I really couldn't bring myself to cover it up. We’re headed on a mini beach vacation for 4th of July though, so we’ll see if I’m still feeling that way at 35 weeks!
What about you: Did you rock the bikini during pregnancy?
